AVAILABLE IN "Better than" ORGANIC ONLY. These capsules provide the same benefits as our regular jar of flax hull lignans only now they are available in capsule form!
Why do we call them "Better than Organic"? Because the US government now allows a certain percentage of GMO's in the "organic" certification. We greatly dislike GMO's and want to offer you a product that has absolutely NO GMO's!! Our farmer takes extra measures to make sure this product has absolutely no GMO's in it.
Encapsulating the lignans is very expensive and causes the price to go up. If you want to save money we recommending buying the powdered version.
Capsules are available only in "Better Than Organic" FHL.
Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans give your body what it needs to keep your immune system working strongly. FHL is not the same as whole ground flax. 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! Using a special process called "the MCP process," the lignans are extracted from the shell of the flax seed and concentrated into powder form. 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 lignans in the flax seed shell. Manufacturer recommends 1 scoop daily for adults, and 1/2 scoop for children. Scoop is included in jar.
Flax Hull Lignans support multiple body systems. 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 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 compare to Flax Hull Lignans.
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
There are no chemicals used in extracting the lignans from the shell and therefore, no chemicals in our flax hull lignans! ALL liquid forms of flax hull lignans have used chemical extraction and should be avoided.
Flax Hull Lignans - 1 Month Supply, 32 Servings With Serving Scoop Included.
*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 Flax Hull Lignans!). Chemical residues are also something to be concerned about with chemically extracted lignans. Don't be fooled by imitations!
