When to Seek a Health Care Professional
There is never a bad time to seek medical advice.
This fact becomes especially true as we advance in years.
Fem-Flax® is an all-natural, highly concentrated health supplement made from flaxseed. Flaxseed has been used as food additive and recognized for its medicinal benefits for literally thousands of years.
Modern research has deemed its ingestion by humans (and livestock) as relatively safe.
Only minor concerns have ever been noted related to flaxseed.Flaxseed (by its very nature) is very high in natural fiber. The ingestion of too much flaxseed may result in bloating, flatulence, and diarrhea. In extremely rare cases (far less than those individuals allergic to peanuts) an allergic reaction may occur.
The fact that Fem-Flax is high in fiber may work in your favor. It has been well documented that irregularity becomes more of a problem as we age. The natural fiber inherent in Fem-Flax will help to balance the elimination process. As with any high fiber food, be sure to take plenty of water with every Fem-Flax daily dose (a minimum of 8 ounces).
As mentioned previously, Fem-Flax is highly concentrated. Fem-Flax contains 7 to 10 times the phytoestorgens (hot flash and night sweat stopping power) as that of whole ground flaxseed. As a result, there are far fewer concerns related to excessive fiber when taking Fem-Flax.
It is always a sound practice to consult with your physician prior to the start of any new health regimen. This, to insure it will be safe for you and to determine if the proposed treatment plan will interfere or have the potential to react with current prescriptions and medications.
