Although the use of herbal products is a growing trend worldwide, many people are not fully informed of what they should be looking for in a market where there is such a wide range of Natural Remedies and treatments available.
One of the most interesting points raised by a recent Duke University study on Flaxseed (Read the Article American Society of Clinical Oncologists Report Endorses use of Natural Remedies) was the different results obtained when using various forms of the herb - ground whole Flaxseed vs. Flaxseed oil extract.
Over the course of their study, researchers found that while using ground Flaxseed resulted in a lower growth rate of prostate Cancer cells, using the oil extract had no positive effect on the growth of the cells.
The results clearly demonstrate that the whole herb form of Flaxseed (obtained using the Full Spectrum Method™) contains compounds that work together to produce the growth-slowing effect on prostate tumors, while the isolated extract (Standardized Extracts) by itself does not contain those compounds and thus cannot have the same positive effect.
