Recent Laboratory Tests Show Benefits of Active Ingredient in FemFlax Hot Flash Relief Supplement

The April, 2010 edition of the ‘British Journal of Nutrition’ published an article on the recent findings of the College of Pharmacy and Nutrition, University of Saskatchewan, Canada, revealing the results of a study done to determine the health benefits associated with the regular consumption of SDG flax hull lignans (the most potent and prolific source of phytonutrients in Femflax).

Online PR News – 11-June-2010 – – FemFlax™ is a full-spectrum flax-hull lignan hot flash relief supplement marketed to women suffering from symptoms associated with perimenopause and menopause. This recent research has indicated that the same active ingredients in FemFlax (which helps to stop hot flashes and to stop night sweats) not only lowers the risk of cancer cell formation, but also abates the growth of new cancer cells.

The Saskatchewan study concludes that SDG lignan metabolites provide health benefits due to their weak oestrogenic or anti-oestrogenic effects, antioxidant activity, and their ability to induce phase 2 proteins and/or inhibit the activity of certain enzymes.

While the FemFlax hot flash relief treatment contains the full-spectrum of 27 lignans, SDG flax hull lignans (secoisolariciresinol diglucoside) are the most prolific (in flaxseed, of any plant source) and have garnered the most laboratory and research attention due to their nutritional properties and many other health benefits.

"FemFlax is marketed to stop hot flashes naturally but human trials have identified numerous benefits associated with SDG flax hull lignan consumption. SDG lignan metabolites protect against CVD (cardio vascular disease) and the metabolic syndrome by reducing lipid and glucose concentrations, lowering blood pressure, and decreasing oxidative stress and inflammation.

These trials show flax hull lignans also reduce cancer risks by preventing pre-cancerous cellular changes and by reducing angiogenesis (reducing the growth and formation of new blood vessels in the afflicted area, and in so doing, cutting off the food supply and stunting the growth of the new cancer cells) and metastasis (abates the spread of cancer cells to other parts of the body).

Thus, dietary SDG flax hull lignans can decrease the incidence of several chronic diseases that result in the significant number of annual (human) deaths attributed to these illnesses, especially in highly industrialized countries. " Said Connor Stevens a representative from FemFlax.

Besides hot flash relief and those mentioned above the flax hull lignans are said to have many benefits ranging from, lowering LDL cholesterol, positive effects on bone density, stop sweating during menopause, to protect against calcium loss, boosting the body's immune system, helps with hair loss, stop hot flashes, reduce excessive free radicals on the body, excellent source of fiber, source of B12 in the forum of Cobalamine, protects or support treatment for various kinds of cancer (colon, bowel, prostrate, breast).
