    Can flaxseed help reduce cancer?


    Flaxseed is a rich source of plant lignans which recent studies have shown to have anticancer properties.
    Plant lignans work in such a way that restricts the cancer promoting effects of estrogen on breast tissue. Recent studies showed that women with a high level of phytoestrogen enterolactone – which was linked to a high lignan intake from foods like flaxseed had a 58% reduced risk of breast cancer.

    Plant lignans have also demonstrated positive effects on prostate cancer as they have been shown to slow tumor growth. A low fat diet with 30 grams of ground flaxseed reduces serum testosterone by 15 %, slows the rate at which cancer cells grow and increases the rate of death of cancer cells.

    It's worth adding some flaxseed to your diet to help keep you healthy and energized! Take a look at our recipe ideas to see how you can integrate goodness into your food daily.
