Lignans are considered phytoestrogens. These compounds are able to mimic the hormone estrogen in the body and may reduce the effects of estrogen overload.
Flax Hull Lignans contains flax fibre, which is very beneficial to the digestive tract. Flax fibre behaves as a gentle laxative by adding bulk to the stool, which in turn promotes regularity.
How It Works:
Flax is one of the most ancient of useful herbs. Its Latin name, Linum usitatissimum, means "most useful." The usefulness of flax to humankind predates earliest recorded history. Ancient Egyptians grew flax along the Nile and wove linen fabrics for clothing, bed sheets, diapers, sails, even wrapping for mummies. Flax was also used for culinary purposes and recognized by ancient healers for its medicinal value. The Greek physician Dioscorides extolled flax seed's power for "reducing all inflammation inwardly and outwardly", and Hippocrates encouraged the use of flax seed for the relief of abdominal pains.
The essential fatty acids in flax oil are the best known constituent in flax seed for providing health benefits. Flax oil has become one of the most beneficial and sought after health products in the marketplace. While most of the attention surrounding flax seed has been its source of essential fatty acids, recent studies and research have revealed that the substance called "lignan" within flax seed may surpass flax oil in its health benefits.
