Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans (FHL) are a natural immune system supporter and builder. Studies published online from a Non-profit AIDS based organization say that in their studies, FHL Flax Hull Lignans raised CD-4 counts (the measurement of the immune system in the blood). We recommend you doing the research (try a search for flax hull lignans and AIDS). When you have to be around crowds of people, you want to know your immune system is working right. FHL is a natural immune system support for your body.
FHL is not the same as the flax seed you grind yourself. Whole ground flax naturally has a small amount of lignans in it because it includes the shell of the flaxseed, and the shell is where the lignans are. However, you’d still need to consume 2 gallons of whole ground flax seed a day to get the immune system supporting power in 1.5 teaspoons of these concentrated Flax Hull Lignans! The lignans also need to be cold milled with the special MCP process to preserve the enzymes in the product.
Our Flax Hull Lignan MCP Extraction Process
We us a special process of extraction called the “MCP” process. We mechanically extract the lignans from the shells of the flax seed and concentrate them into powder form. It is the Flax Hull Lignans MCP Process. There is no seed in this product, only lignans from the shell. Each 1.5 teaspoon sized serving has from 150-300 mg of SDG (the dominant lignan) as well as all of the other natural lignans in the flax seed shell. Manufacturer recommends 1 scoop daily for adults, and 1/2 scoop for children. We include a scoop in each jar.
How FHL Works in the Body
FHL doesn’t just help the immune system, it supports multiple body systems. FHL is very beneficial to the prostate, breast and brain. They support properly replicating DNA and help everything to run smoothly.
They are very high in anti-oxidants, more potent than the darkest leafy green vegetable – kale! Kale is a vegetable that has one of the highest ORAC values(the measurement of antioxidant). Kale’s ORAC value is 1770, while concentrated FHL has an ORAC value of 19,600!
FHL is 8% oil and fat, and 55% of that fat is ALA (Alpha-Linolenic Acid). If a person were to consume 2.5g (3/4 tsp) daily of FHL, they would be consuming approximately 110mg ALA. The National Academy of Sciences, USA has given daily recommendations of ALA to be 110mg for women and 160mg for men. 1 scoop of FHL give approximately 220 mg of ALA.
There is 2.1g of dietary fiber and 1.4g of protein in each scoop of FHL
Purity is Important – No Chemicals In Our Lignans! Flax Hull Lignans with MCP Process only!
There are no chemicals used in extracting our lignans from the shell and therefore, no chemicals in our flax hull lignans! You should be aware of ALL liquid forms of flax hull lignans, because they use chemical extraction.
*Our lignans contain the FULL SPECTRUM of 17 lignans that are used in the studies. Don’t be fooled by cheap imitations, chemically extracted single lignan products that only extract SDG. These chemically extracted lignans are dead, as their enzymes have been killed (unlike our FHL Flax Hull Lignans MCP Processed!). Chemical residues are also something to be concerned about with chemically extracted lignans. Don’t be fooled by imitations!
Note: These are certified natural commercial lignans – the same ones that have undergone the rigorous testing by various organizations. While these are not certified organic, they are a very clean, all natural lignan product that meets the high standards of health & wellness professionals worldwide, and meet the rigerous standards to be qualified as Kosher. Though the farmer tries to get non-GMO flax for all his lignans, you have to purchase the “Better Than Organic” Non-GMO lignans to guarantee that standard.
ALL of our lignans are Kosher and 100% natural with no additives.
1 Jar of FHL Flax Hull Lignans is $39, or you can Buy 2 and get 1 Free for $78.
We can’t legally link you to the non-profit studies due to FDA regulations. We can suggest that you search for Flax Hull Lignans with the MCP process in connection to terms like immune system, cancer and AIDS. There are great articles on pubmed.gov if you search “flax lignans” alone or also with other search terms. Here is a generic example from that site: CLICK HERE
