Concentrated Natural Organic Flax Hulls

(concentrated shell of the flax seed in powder form)

comprising of:

  • Fortified Flax Hulls with 3-day old broccoli sprouts
  • Flax Hulls (Lignans)

The flax hulls are certified organic by U.S.A. Organics (Cert. # US-ND-P0012) & Global Organic Alliance, Inc. (Cert. # 4276) both of USA
The flax hulls are certified Kosher and Pareve by VAAD HA'IR of WINNIPEG, Inc. of Canada


Flax Hulls contain high levels of lignans called secoisolariciresinol glucoside or SDG which, when converted to mammalian lignans (ED and EL) by good bacteria, are powerful antioxidants and potent free radical scavengers.

Flax Hulls (Lignans) are natural organic shell only of the flaxseed without any seed materials or oil. The shell of the flaxseed is known and proven to contain very high levels of botanical lignans especially SDG. Friendly bacteria convert them into mammalian lignans so that the body can absorb better. They are powerful free radical scavengers and help stop excessive free radical activity which deplete the body's immune system. In this way, llgnans help boost the immune of the body. Flax hulls are also nutritious fibres containing both soluble and insoluble fibres and Vitamin B12 in the form of Cobalamin.

Fortified Flax Hulls are essentially flax hulls (lignans) as described above fortified with 3-day old broccoli sprouts. Broccoli sprouts have been studied by Prof. Dr. Paul Talalay of John Hopkins University (MD, USA) and found to contain high levels of glucoraphanin. Glucoraphanin when chewed releases a powerful antioxidant called Sulforaphane. Prof. Dr. Paul Talalay studied and found that Sulforaphane are highly effective in the treatment of cancers in rats. Other studies have found that 3-day broccoli sprouts contain the highest level of Glucoraphanin and the reason that they are chosen to fortify the flax hulls. These 3-day old broccoli sprouts are grown organically from specially chosen organic seeds. After harvesting, the sprouts are "freeze-dried" to preserve its properties.




"Flax seed lignans have anti-tumor, anti-mittic, antioxidant and weak estrogenic activity."

The FDA (USA)…
"Flax seed lignans have anti-tumor, anti-mittic, antioxidant and weak estrogenic activity, are potentially the richest source of phytoestrogens in the human diet and may be linked to a low incidence of breast and colon cancer. Their significant ability to prevent cancer is recognized by the National Cancer Institute. In addition to having anti-cancer properties lignans also have anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungus properties."

The Mayo Clinic (USA)…
"Phytoestrogens are naturally occurring compounds that lower circulating estrogens in your body. Flaxseed is particularly high in one phytoestrogen, lignan, which appears to decrease estrogen production and which may inhibit the growth of some breast cancers."
- The Mayo Clinic http://www.mayoclinic.com/print/breast-cancerprevention/WO0009


The American Cancer Society…
"One study of 25 men with prostate cancer found that a low-fat diet along with ground flaxseed reduced serum testosterone, slowed the growth rate of cancer cells, and increased the death rate of cancer cells."

ANTIOXIDANTS
Flax Hull Lignans are more potent as an antioxidant than the darkest leafy green vegetable!

Kale is a vegetable that has one of the highest ORAC values (the measurement of antioxidant).

Kale's ORAC value is 1770, while concentrated Flax Hull Lignans have an ORAC value of 19,600! Prunes are the fruit with the highest ORAC value at 6,770, which still doesn't come close to Flax Hull Lignans!
*ORAC values on lignans were performed by Brunswick Laboratories, in Norton, MA.



Read the amazing testimonial of how a HIV+ individual recovered his health and improved his immune system using LB17, Flax Hulls and Maitake Mushrooms!




Suggested usage:
5 gm. or 1 scoop (provided in jar) daily for a healthy person
10 gm. or 2 scoops daily for at least a month to help recovery from health issues

Fortified Flax & Flax Hulls are best used with LB17 "live" probiotic for efficient absorption of the Lignans


Note: Fortified Flax & Flax hulls does not contain any seed materials or its oil
. They are specially milled and are very stable at room temperature and will not turn rancid, if properly ketp, for up to 2 years.

Eating flax seeds may contain the hulls but one would have to eat a very large amount of flaxseeds to achieve the same quantity of the concentrated fortified flax or flax hulls above. It is harmful to eat too much flaxseeds because in such large quantities the flaxseeds are toxic to the body causing health problems
