Lignans - Unique Antioxidants in Flax Seed

by Jonathon Miller, M.A., M.Div., natural health educator and author


Flax seed is by far the highest food in lignans, special antioxidants documented to protect against cancer, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes and other ailments. Antioxidants help to avert damage done by free radicals, molecular particles that zoom around inside the body seeking a missing electron. A typical antioxidant provides an electron to a free radical which ends its wild, damaging quest.

Flax seed has 100 times the lignan content of the next best food source. There are a total of 27 anti-cancer agents in flaxseed, mostly lignans.  

Some of the lignans are phytoestrogens. The low level of these natural compounds provided by flax seed can help balance female hormones and reduce PMS and other disturbances, without becoming a problem themselves.

Further, the special lignans found in flax seed are much more abundant in the whole seed than in the oil. Most of these antioxidants and phytoestrogens are lost in the process of expelling the oil from the seed.

Flaxseed Is A Leading Health Product

Consuming high quality flaxseed on a regular basis will stop many of the common health problems. You can join the growing thousands of people enjoying the benefit of flax seed oil and other flax seed benefits.

Of all the things that are offered for better health, this one is among the simplest and lowest in cost with the most definitely noticeable results.

Out of hundreds of natural health products on the market, some of the best selling ones are colon-cleansing bulk fiber products that make bowel movements easy. High quality milled flaxseed is far superior as a gentle soluble fiber, and because of the nutrition it supplies along with the easy BM's.

Omega 3 fish oil capsules and flax oil are quite popular too. But nearly all of those are rancid. High quality organic flax seed, milled and vacuum packed, is much better and has many tasty uses.

Many take protein supplements of various types. High quality milled flax seed has 22% protein, and it is complete with all the essential amino acids.

And our convenient and versatile organic milled flaxseed is WAY less expensive than any of the products mentioned above.


"After taking the flaxseed for one week I clearly notice that my elimination has improved. I enjoy the flax in various ways, but especially on salads. I feel good about taking it because it is doing me good."

-- Don D. ; Hartville, Ohio


Please consider ordering the best organically-grown milled flaxseed

with the highest oil level, grown in soils free of cadmium.
