The Story behind Nature’s Sunshine Flax Hull Lignans and Curtis Rangeloff

Curtis Rangeloff says that God answered him in response to prayer and showed him how to obtain the flax lignans. With the help of his friend Dennis Maw, they figured out how to isolate the hulls with the lignans intact; a process which had previously stumped medical scientists. Previously, removing the soft pulp resulted in its destruction, or more correctly, destroying much of its medical usefulness. Their proprietary process extracts the lignans in such a way that it provides ‘1000 times the cancer cell destroying capabilities of just plain flax’. Both of these farmers credit learning the secret to this process by attending the World Flax Conference held in Fargo, ND for the last 10 years. It was this knowledge, research, and prayers that blessed them with the idea of inventing the world's first chemical-free method of mechanically separating the lignan-rich hulls from the rest of the flax in a manner that prevents rancidity and allows for a stable, effective product for consumer use. AIDS Research Assistance Institute states that Flax Hull Lignans are very concentrated where one teaspoon of Flax Hull Lignans contains the nutritional equivalent of two gallons of flax seed.  These potent lignans, as the research is validating, work throughout our bodies to balance hormones, modulate the immune system, stimulate enzyme production, balance the digestive system, and scavenge free radicals which can damage tissue and play a role in the pathology of many diseases. While all of the lignans in flax work together and have a positive effect on one’s health, SDG is the lignan that has shown to have the greatest impact on cancer and has been the lignan where most of the research has been focused.

70 times the amount of SDG typically contained in the same amount of traditional ground flax seed.
Concentrated Flax hull lignans boast a pure lignan content of up to 65%.  Each scoop of the Nature’s Sunshine Flax Hull Lignan product contains 150-300 mg of SDG per serving. That's 70 times the amount of SDG typically contained in the same amount of traditional ground flax seed.  Lignans are a group of phytonutrients (plant nutrients) which are found in seeds, grains and vegetables. Flax seed is by far nature's richest source of plant lignans. The lignans are found in the fibre hull of the seed. Flax seed contains a total of 27 different lignans, the main one being the secoisolariciresinol diglycoside (SDG). 

Flax seed also contains high levels of omega-3s and high amounts of antioxidants. In comparing the antioxidant levels of kale, one of the highest ORAC (a measurement of food’s antioxidant content) at 1,770 per 100 grams, concentrated Flax Hull Lignans measures at 19,600 per 100 grams. Lignans also contains 4.3g of fiber and 2.8g of protein per scoop.

The Mayo Clinic says Flax Hull Lignans may inhibit the growth of some breast cancers.
The American Cancer Society cites a study in which the growth rate of cancer cells was slowed in men suffering from prostate cancer.
Flax Hull Lignans is a rich source of phytoestrogens, and their ability to prevent cancer is presently being acknowledged by the National Cancer Institute.

(HIS)  Health Science Institute reports that recently “an exciting study was carried out in Canada on a group of postmenopausal women with newly diagnosed breast cancer. Each day for a month, the women in the test group ate a flaxseed muffin containing a predetermined concentration of SDG. After only one month, the growth of the cancer cells was reduced by 34.2%.   31% of cancer cells were completely killed, and the expression of the cancer growth receptor Her2 (c-erB2) decreased by 71%”. Her2 is a gene that helps to regulate cell. 

Lignans can affect tumor growth in several ways: they function as weak estrogens or anti­estrogens to inhibit the effects of estrogen and estrogen like chemicals.  They block the action of enzymes that promote breast cancer cell growth and they exhibit antioxidant effects that help reduce cancer development. Such estrogenic effects may explain why flax seed oil has been used effectively for reducing and relieving symptoms associated with PMS and menopause. 

Driving Cancer Cells to Mass Suicide

• In two studies on breast cancer cells implanted into immune deficient mice, flax lignans again proved deadly to cancer. Both tumor growth and metastasis were significantly reduced.
• In one of the studies, metastasis to the lungs was reduced by 82 percent. The average number of tumors was also considerably lower in the test group than in the control group.
• A study in California demonstrated that SDG reduced risk of endometrial cancer in some women by 32 percent. This reduced risk was most evident among postmenopausal women who consumed high levels of both isoflavones and lignans.
• Other studies have shown similar reduced risk for uterine and ovarian cancers.
• A clinical trial in Canada found that higher dietary lignan intake was linked to considerable reduction in colorectal cancer risk. And, according to studies with human colon cancer cells, lignans stunt the growth of tumor cells and actually drive them to what can only be described as mass suicide.
• Supplementation with SDG reduced tumors significantly in mice with melanoma. The average number of tumors in the control group was 62, while the average number in the groups of mice receiving SDG was around half that. Tumor size was also decreased

Scientist Ken Campbell’s Report

In 2008 we received this report from Ken Campbell, the scientist behind Nature‘s Sunshine Flax Hull Lignans.   The article he sent is from (HSI) Health Science Institute

“Stage 4 cancer patients cancer free within two months.
Tumor metastasis reduced by 82 percent.
A human study in which 31 percent of cancer cells were flat out killed in thirty days.
In another study, mice fed Flax Hull Lignans ended up with half the tumors of the control group.
People with Type 2 diabetes have stopped needing shots of insulin.
Men with enlarged prostates have started sleeping through the night.
Some breast cancers, ovarian cancers and stomach cancers have multiple copies of unnecessary Her2 genes whereby cell growth regulation goes out of control. The SDG found in Flax Hull Lignans brings this process to a halt and causes the cancer cells to die.
“In two studies on breast cancer cells implanted into immune deficient mice, Flax Hull Lignans again proved deadly to cancer. Both tumor growth and metastasis were significantly reduced. In one of the studies, metastasis to the lungs was reduced by 82 percent. The average number of tumors was also considerably lower in the test group than in the control group.” ( HSI)
“A study in California demonstrated that SDG reduced risk of endometrial cancer in some women by 32 percent. This reduced risk was most evident among postmenopausal women who consumed high levels of both isoflavones and lignans.4 other studies have shown similar reduced risk for uterine and ovarian cancers.” (HSI)
“A clinical trial in Canada found that higher dietary lignan intake was linked to considerable reduction in colorectal cancer risk. And, according to studies with human colon cancer cells, lignans stunt the growth of tumor cells and actually drive them to what can only be described as mass suicide.” (HSI)
“Supplementation with SDG reduced tumors significantly in mice with melanoma. The average number of tumors in the control group was 62, while the average number in the groups of mice receiving SDG was around half that. Tumor size was also decreased.” (HSI)
“A 52-year-old woman started taking Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans two years after she was diagnosed with bone cancer. At that point, she was only able to walk with crutches, and painfully at that. After just one month with the lignans, she stopped taking her pain medication, ditched the crutches, and found her energy level returning to normal.” (HSI)
“September, Tony, aged 84, was told his lung cancer was so advanced that he wouldn’t make it to Christmas. His daughter-in-law was distraught, knowing her daughter’s December wedding would be a sad event without him. She learned about the Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans from a friend and had some sent to Tony. Come December, he was a happy guest at his granddaughter’s wedding.  A scan showed the cancer had not spread and actually was reduced to one tiny nodule in his lung. This was after Tony had been taking the Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans for only six months.” (HSI)
“In a 12-year study of Finnish men, it was found that those with the highest intake of plant lignans were significantly less likely to die from cardiovascular disease than their counterparts who ate the least amount of foods containing plant lignans.” (HSI)
“Flax Hull Lignans have also been shown to suppress the development of atherosclerosis (chronic inflammation of the arteries due to an accumulation of plaque) in a study on rabbits. The development of atherosclerosis in rabbits treated with the lignans was reduced by 34.4percent. The lignans also lowered LDL cholesterol and raised levels of HDL cholesterol. “(HSI)
“A 26-year-old man who was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a few years ago has been struggling to manage his illness ever since. Unable to keep his blood sugar down, he watched helplessly as it regularly spiked to 600, despite taking 40 units of insulin with every shot. Two weeks after he began including Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans in his diet, he noticed a change in how he felt. Now, his blood sugar stays under 200, and he hasn’t had to give himself a shot in two months.” (HSI)
“A recent study demonstrated that Flax Hull Lignans could reduce prostate size. Rats given the human equivalent of 50 mg per day of SDG had significantly smaller.” (HSI)
“There are reports of men who suffer from enlarged prostate and make frequent trips to the bathroom at night when they should be asleep. In taking a scoop of Flax Hull Lignans a day within 2 weeks their nightly bathroom routines came to a halt.” (HSI)
“In a study of 25 men who were scheduled for prostatectomy, supplementation with flax brought significant changes in serum cholesterol, total testosterone, and the free androgen index. Researchers concluded that Flax Hull Lignans may be very beneficial food for men battling prostate cancer.”(HSI)
“Flax Hull Lignans was given to children who were alarmingly underweight. They gained both weight and energy, and stopped getting the colds and flus they once constantly suffered from, according to, a nurse working in Swaziland.” (HSI)
“In a 90-day anecdotal test on 100 people with HIV (75 percent exhibiting full AIDS symptoms), 97 percent reported positive health changes, with energy and appetites increasing. Most amazing is the fact that, after 6 weeks, 28 percent had viral loads drop to non-detectible levels.” (HSI)
“ In 2005, 14.5 percent of flu viruses were resistant to major flu drugs. That might not sound like a lot, but compare it to the fact that only 1.9 percent of flu viruses were resistant just one year earlier. Luckily, it seems Flax Hull Lignans can do the same thing for influenza that they are doing for the HIV virus in Africa. When a virus enters the cells of the body, it stimulates hormones that activate the gene for p53. When this gene is activated, it actually induces virally infected cells to shut down, thereby preventing the virus from spreading. If this is activated shortly after infection, further viral replication is completely stopped. Based upon recent studies, influenza virus infections can be stopped in this way. Flax Hull Lignans, through a series of interactions with the inner workings of the body’s cells, can increase the level of p53 in cells. Long story short, Flax Hull Lignans can actually help to both prevent flu infections and fight those that already exist.” (HSI)
“A Canadian study also suggests that SDG may have a therapeutic role in treating lupus. A Dutch human study showed that Flax Hull Lignans could be an answer for hair loss for both men and women. :” (HSI)

Nature’s Sunshine Flax Hull Lignans meet this STANDARD.  SDG lignan is a potent antioxidant and has also been shown to enhance immune system functioning.   Lignans are considered phytoestrogens. These compounds are able to mimic the hormone estrogen in the body and may reduce the effects of estrogen overload.  Flax Hull Lignans contains flax fibre, which is very beneficial to the digestive tract. Flax fibre behaves as a gentle laxative by adding bulk to the stool, which in turn promotes regularity.  Flax Hull Lignans are considered a ‘Modern Superfood’ because their biological properties are unique in promoting health & combating diseases.  Flax Hull Lignans are known to be effective against breast and prostate cancer, heart disease, diabetes, kidney disorders, lupus, skin cancer and melanomas and other conditions.   Nature’s Sunshine Flax Hull lignans is an all-natural organic food that delivers exceptional natural health benefits and it is simple to use, you can put it in your shake or sprinkle on your foods and salads.
