Concentrated Fem-Flax has been especially formulated for women of menopausal age in an effort to combat “hot flashes” and “night sweats”, symptoms traditionally associated with menopause.
The active ingredients in Fem-Flax are commonly referred to as “flax hull lignans”. Each Fem-Flax capsule contains 99.9% of the full-spectrum of 27 available flax hull lignans. Fem-Flax contains no additives, fillers, preservatives or other unnecessary inert compounds. Each capsule is packed end to end, with highly concentrated all-natural active ingredients (700mg).
Fem-Flax, made from the outer portion of the flax hull, is much better at reducing menopause symptoms than either whole ground flaxseed, flasxeed oil, ect. Fem-Flax is a concentrated powder made from the outer area of the seed hull. The oily embrio portion of the seed is not used in this product.
In that the active ingredient affecting menopause symptoms is only found in the seed hull (about 18% by weight of the entire whole seed), Fem-Flax becomes highly concentrated and far less product needs to be taken to be effective.
A daily regimen of Fem-Flax is much different than eating whole ground flaxseed. In order to obtain the same potent lignan count found in concentrated Fem-Flax, you would have to ingest many more times the volume in whole ground flaxseed.
The ‘active’ mammalian lignans produced in the body with flaxseed consumption have hormonal effects in women and help to relieve menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats. These act by binding to estrogen receptors on cell membranes.
While mammalian lignans may not be as powerful as natural estrogens, the complete full-spectrum of 27 lignans found in FemFlax have been clinically proven to be as effective as ‘hormone replacement therapy’ in improving menopause symptoms.
The good news is that the concentrated flax hull lignans found in Fem-Flax act as weak estrogen replacements, and in this way, help to alleviate the hot flash and night sweats symptoms associated with menopause.
