Why High Lignan Flax Oil?
There are about 50 essential elements our bodies require for everyday health and longevity. They are considered “essential” because our bodies cannot manufacture them; we must acquire them from the diet. Most of these essential elements are vitamins, minerals and amino acids but two are the essential fatty acids, known as omega-3 and omega-6.
Omega-3 is regarded by many nutritionists and researchers as a leading therapeutic fatty acid because of its importance in aiding the body to maintain healthy cell structure, promote metabolic energy and enhance immune function. However, most of the population (about 80%) is believed to be deficient in omega-3.
Vegetarian flax oil is one of the richest sources of omega-3, containing twice the density found in salmon—a familiar source of omega-3. Flax is rich in phospholipids which form cell membranes, promote nerve insulation, and improve immunity. Flax also provides sterols which are precursors to many hormonal constituents such as estrogen and testosterone.
Plant lignans are soluble and insoluble fibers found in high fiber foods such as flaxseed. The lignans in flax are the richest source found in nature at 100 times the density of other sources such as wheat, oats and barley. Researchers have found plant lignans enhance immune system functioning and may work to reduce tumor development.
Lignans found in flax oil are classed as phenolic compounds. They form a fibrous chain acting as toxin repositories for insoluble and spent wastes in the intestinal tract and colon. Research has shown that patients with breast or colon cancers measure a dramatic lowering of lignan content in bodily wastes, suggesting that phenolic lignan compounds act to assist in modulating immunological response and detoxification of multiple metabolic processes.
While some may experience surprise at the sometimes noticeable tiny seed particles in High Lignan Flax Oil, research indicates this oil can offer substantial benefits. Nutritionists have reported that supplementation with flax may result in the following benefits:
- smoother skin
- improved immunity
- better energy/less fatigue
- quicker wound healing
- less anxiety or stress
- improved hormonal regulation
- lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels and many other health benefits
- Because omega-3 is easily assimilated and put to work immediately, it does not convert to stored fat when taken as directed.
Since most Americans suffer omega-3 deficiency, flax oil is the recommended starter oil for initial supplementation providing the body with a 3:1 ratio of omega-3s to omega-6s.
Supplement daily with 1 tablespoon per 100 lbs. of body weight. It is best taken with meals. A competent health care practitioner can recommend the best therapeutic levels for you based on lifestyle and general health.
Flaxseed, botanically called Linum usitatissimum, means “most useful plant” in Latin. It is one of the oldest cultivated plants dating back to ancient civilizations of the Middle East. People used the fiber to make linen clothing and the oil to light lamps as well as for culinary purposes. The roots were used for tea.
Our flaxseed is grown organically along the USA/Canada border. Flax needs long cold winters and short hot summers with long days of sunlight to generate the high ratio of omega-3 fatty acids that make it such a dense source of EFAs. The states and provinces of North Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta with their black, fertile soils are the prime growing regions and deliver a very potent form of flax oil.
Flax oil is extremely delicate and deteriorates easily if not specially processed and handled. SpectraVac is a highly evolved processing method that extracts oil at cold pressing temperatures (under 120° F) and prevents the destructive effects of light, heat, and oxygen. SpectraVac also eliminates soil-born bacteria called mycobacteria, thus insuring a level of purity and food safety that no other manufacturer has been able to achieve.
The result is the best tasting oil available!
For best results, take 1 tablespoon per 100 lbs of body weight with food daily. Shake well before using.
