Note! - Flaxhulls and Pressed Flax Hulls are the same.
Lignans are in the flaxhulls.
These Flax Hulls are removed from the flax kernel by a mechanical
process, then the oil is pressed out of the flax hull, thereby no
chemical residues. This leaves us with an almost pure product made
up of flax hulls without oil (therefore a good shelf life). This
yields about 90-99% flaxhulls and flaxhulls have about 4% lignans and are called seciosolariciresinol
diglycoside (SDG or SD)
You may question; why not eat the whole flax seed? That would be
ok, but you must grind it before you eat it, and after it is ground,
it must be used reasonably soon as the oil begins to oxidize when
the kernel is broken. The pressed flax hulls do not deteriorate
nearly as fast. If you have an imbalance (health condition) that
would be helped with SDG. This would be the most concentrated source.
I have a 40 page book available by Dr. Dan Junker and Charles
Weisman, that mentions the SDG activity as an antioxidant, and its
activity on diabetes, lupus, kidney disorders, breast cancer, colon
cancer, prostate cancer, heart disease, skin cancer & melanoma,
and woman's and men's health (referring to estrogen balancing). The
book is included with the purchase of the pressed flax hulls.
