Nutri-flax is a certified organic hi-lignan flax seed powder. Lignans are natural phytochemicals found in high concentrations in the fiber (rather than the oil) portion of flax seeds. High-lignan Nutri-Flax is a true high lignan product, with an amazing 27mg of lignans per serving. While flax seeds have up to 800 times more lignans than 66 other plant food sources, a superior product, such as Hi-Lignan Nutri-Flax, has about 30% more lignans than whole flax seeds. Scientific research has shown lignans to be an excellent source of phytoestrogens, a compound with numerous demonstrated health benefits for men and women. Hi-Lignan Nutri-Flax is high in dietary fiber, containing both soluble and insoluble fiber. It has a delightfully nutty taste and is a safe, organic alternative to psyllium and other fiber supplements. Nutri-Flax has a very low sodium content, with a potassium sodium ratio of 23:1, preserving nature's balance of these crucial electrolytes. Use alone, or in baking, energy shakes, blender drinks, as an egg replacer, a gluten free thickener for soups, stews or sauces, or as a salad topping. Suitable for vegetarian vegan and raw food diets. Usual dose is 1 tbsp into a large glass of water or juice. Stir well and drink immediately.
