Lignans are a highly studied and researched class of plant chemical (phytochemical) and a form of insoluble
fiber that have recently come to the forefront of nutritional research. Compelling studies funded by the
National Cancer Institute have shown that lignans may possess impressive preventative properties. Research
has established that the amount of lignans present in human blood samples is directly related to the amount
of lignan rich producing foods consumed. When flaxseed was compared to other lignan rich producing foods,
it was found to have 200-800 times more lignan precursors. By using the Barlean's Bio-Electron process the
flax particulates (high in lignan precursors) is retained in the oil, offering nature's richest source of
these valuable plant chemicals.
