Fem-Flax® and Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer develops primarily in men over fifty and is the leading cause of cancer death in U.S. men after lung cancer.
Some pharmaceutical drugs like Finasteride formerly thought to reduce the incidence of prostate cancer, actually inhibit the early detection of prostate cancer cells. In fact the June, 2008 edition of The Medical Letter states; “Finasteride might cause more aggressive (prostate) tumors.” The article concludes: "Until more evidence becomes available, the conservative course would be not to take it."
According to the study, Finasteride has also been associated with erectile dysfunction and a lower sex drive.
If pharmacological drug treatments are questionable, what other preventative treatments are available?
As early as 70 years ago, researchers have been investigating the chemical properties of estrogens and phytoestrogens in an effort to thwart prostate cancer growth.
In 1941, Charles B. Huggins published studies in which he used estrogen to oppose testosterone production in men with metastatic prostate cancer. This discovery eventually won Huggins the 1966 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
More recently, phytoestrogens found in plant lignans have been found to be effective antagonists against prostate cancer cell proliferation and first-time formation.
In the entire plant kingdom, phytoestrogens from flax hull lignans represent the greatest source of phytonutrient bioavailability.
How do Phytoestrogens Work to Stop the Growth of Prostate Cancer Cells?
Metabolized phytoestrogens (in this case, enterolactone) bind to the same receptor sites on cells as estrogen. This action can prevent hormones from binding to cells on hormone-dependent cancerous prostate tumors. In effect, slowing prostate tumor growth or prohibiting prostate cancer cell growth in the first place.
Once metabolized, flax hull lignans are converted to the enterolignans enerodiol and enterolactone.
“The enterolignans, enterodiol and enterolactone, are formed by the action of intestinal bacteria on lignan precursors found in (flax) plants. Because enterodiol and enterolactone can mimic… the effects of estrogens, their plant-derived precursors are classified as phytoestrogens.” December 2005, Jane Higdon, Ph.D., Linus Pauling Institute, Oregon State University
The mammalian lignan enterolactone is a major metabolite of plant-based lignans that has been shown to inhibit the growth and development of prostate cancer.
“Enterolactone selectively suppresses the growth of LNCaP prostate cancer cells by triggering apoptosis. Our findings encourage further studies of enterolactone as a promising chemopreventive agent against prostate cancer.” [Mol Cancer Ther 2007;6(9):2581–90]
“Enterolactone, a major metabolite of plant-based lignans, has been shown to inhibit prostate cancer growth and development. Enterolactone suppresses proliferation and migration of prostate cancer cells. The finding of this study provides new insights into the molecular mechanisms that enterolactone exerts against prostate cancer.” J. Nutr. April 2009 vol. 139 no. 4 653-659
Encapsulated Fem-Flax contains the highest concentration of all-natural plant-based phytonutrients available on the market today. To learn more about cancer prevention and the disease inhibiting capabilities of Fem-Flax, please see our website at: www.femflax.com.
Fem-Flax® and Hysterectomy
“Phytoestrogens, compounds derived from plants and converted into weak estrogenic substances in the gastrointestinal tract, are heavily promoted as the “natural alternative” to estrogen replacement therapy for postmenopausal women or women who have undergone a hysterectomy.” Western Journal of Medicine v.173 (4); Oct 2000.
The outer cover of the flaxseed (hull) offers the richest supply of naturally occurring plant-based lignans and the most potent source of phytoestrogens in the entire plant kingdom. These naturally occurring plant compounds are similar in some ways to estradiol, the most powerful and prevalent of the three naturally occurring hormones produced by the ovaries.
Unlike estrogen, the phytoestrogens in Fem-Flax do not increase the risk of breast or uterine cancer. While balancing hormones on the one hand, in vivo clinical studies have shown that the powerful lignans in Fem-Flax also have an anti-estrogenic effect and actually help to prohibit the first time and potential regrowth of breast cancer cells, as well as other tumorous growths.
Studies show that these phytoestrogens act more like SERMS (selective estrogen receptor modulators) than actual estrogens.
Fem-Flax can act as a safe and effective menopause symptom management tool and can be used by pre, peri, and postmenopausal women, women having undergone full or partial hysterectomies, or women searching for a safe alternative to HRT (hormone replacement therapy).
Fem-Flax® and Lung Cancer
A new deterrent in the fight against lung cancer has been discovered. Lung cancer is still the leading cause of cancer related deaths among men and women living in the United States. According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, consuming foods rich in phytoestrogens appears to significantly lower the risk of developing lung cancer in smokers and non-smokers (but not previous smokers).
The study, the largest of its kind to examine dietary intake of phytoestrogens and lung cancer risk in the United States, involved over 3,500 people. The American Cancer Society's most recent estimates for lung cancer in the United States are for 2010:
* About 222,520 new cases of lung cancer will be diagnosed (116,750 among men and 105,770 among women).
* There will be an estimated 157,300 deaths from lung cancer (86,220 among men and 71,080 among women), accounting for about 28% of all cancer deaths.
Lung cancer is by far the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women. More people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined.
Lung cancer mainly occurs in older people. About 2 out of 3 people diagnosed with lung cancer are older than 65; fewer than 3% of all cases are found in people younger than 45. The average age at the time of diagnosis is about 71.
Overall, the chance that a man will develop lung cancer in his lifetime is about 1 in 13; for a woman, the risk is about 1 in 16. These numbers include both smokers and non-smokers. For smokers the risk is much higher, while for non-smokers the risk is lower.
Black men are about 40% more likely to develop lung cancer than white men. The rate is about the same in black women and in white women. Both black and white women have lower rates than men, but the gap is closing. The rate of lung cancer has been dropping among men for many years and is fairly stable among women.
How Phytoestrogens Work
During the test, certain whole foods were introduced into the diet of test subjects to determine the potential antigen effect of phytoestrogens from plant lignans and flavonoids on lung cancer cell growth and proliferation. Those foods producing a higher ratio of phytonutrients were deemed to be the most effective. A surprising 72% lowered risk of developing lung cancer was achieved by individual test subjects consuming whole foods containing the highest concentration of phytonutrients.
"What we have found is intriguing and supports a small but growing body of evidence that suggests estrogenic-like compounds in food may help protect against development of lung and other cancers," says Matthew Schabath, PhD, a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Epidemiology and the study's lead author.
While phytoestrogen-rich whole foods are certainly a boon to those concerned about cancer risks, they do not represent the most potent source of phytoestrogens. Concentrated flax hull lignans can offer ten-times the phytoestrogenic potency of whole grain flaxseed and are potentially hundreds of times more potent than other whole foods containing phytonutrients.Once metabolized, flax hull lignans are converted to the enterolignans enerodiol and enterolactone.
“The enterolignans, enterodiol and enterolactone, are formed by the action of intestinal bacteria on lignan precursors found in (flax) plants. Because enterodiol and enterolactone can mimic… the effects of estrogens, their plant-derived precursors are classified as phytoestrogens.” December 2005, Jane Higdon, Ph.D., Linus Pauling Institute, Oregon State University.
The study indicated that a “high intake of the lignans enterolactone and enterodiol… were associated with a (significant) reduction in risk of lung cancer.” Phytoestrogens and Risk of Lung Cancer - Peter C. H. Hollman, Ivon E. J. Milder, Ilja C. W. Arts, Edith J. M. Feskens, H. Bas Bueno de Mesquita, Daan Kromhout, JAMA. 2006;295(7):755.doi:10.1001/jama.295.7.755-a
