What are Lignans? Why FHL Flax Hull Lignans?
Lignans are phytonutrients widely distributed in the plant kingdom. They can be found in most unrefined grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruits. Flaxseed has been recognized as the richest source of dietary plant lignans and contains from 75 to 800 times more than any other plant source. Much research has been done showing the benefits of flax hull lignans. It takes 20lbs of flax seed to get just 1lb of flax seed hulls. The lignans are only found in the hull of the flax seed (not the seed). Our certified MCP processed flax hull lignans are processed in such a way that all 17+ of the lignans in the flax seed are extracted. The scientists at the University of North Dakota suggest that it is the working together of all of these lignans that create such a powerful immune system supporting function.There are other brands out there selling flax hull lignans but beware of copycat companies. We are the original flax hull lignan company and we use the MCP process. If any company tries to sell you a liquid lignan, beware that the process and product is completely different. There is only one lignan extracted and all enzymes are killed. There is potential for trace chemicals from the solvents they use in extraction as well. Other brands also mechanically extract lignans as we do but are not the original process and cannot claim the certified process and all 17+ lignans from the flaxseed. Most just promote 1-4 of the lignans extracted.
