Nutri-Flax is a high-quality fibre supplement containing both soluble and insoluble fibre, and yielding an extraordinary 225 mg of lignans per level tablespoon.
Lignans are plant compounds that mimic the action of the natural hormone estrogen. For this reason, lignans are considered phytoestrogens. Extensive studies show that Flax Seed Lignans may reduce the incidence of hormone-related cancers such as breast, endometrial and prostate cancer, as well as anticancer, antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. Lignans provide Antioxidant protection too.
Studies suggest that flaxseed (both the ALA in the flaxseed oil and lignans in the seed) may play a role in the prevention and treatment of high cholesterol, heart diseases, menopausal symptoms.
Laboratory studies have reported a reduction in breast tumour growth and metastasis (spreading) in rats. A human study has examined the effects of dietary flaxseed in postmenopausal patients with newly diagnosed breast cancer. The authors found that dietary flaxseed may have the potential to reduce tumour growth in patients with breast cancer.
Research by the National Cancer Institute US show that Lignans may protect the body from hormone-driven cancers by acting as estrogens.
