Full Spectrum Method of Extraction Now Validated by Duke University Study as Being Most Effective

September 12th, 2007

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 Methodâ„¢) 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.

As the worldwide acceptance of Alternative Medicine increases, so does the number of Americans taking the responsibility of personal health into their own hands. Studies conducted by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) reveal that more than thirty-six percent of Americans are using complementary and Alternative Medicine to help treat and prevent disease and enhance their quality of life.

Natural Remedies are an essential component of Alternative Medicine, with more than 5 billion out-of-pocket dollars spent each year on herbal products in the United States alone, according to national surveys conducted by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. As the use of Natural Remedies becomes more widespread and accepted by the general population, they have gained increasing respect from the medical community as well.

Recently, the American Society of Clinical Oncologists released a report regarding the use of Natural Remedies as complementary treatments for Cancer patients. This important report centered around two commonly used natural herbal Supplements, Ginseng and Flaxseed, and the results were overwhelmingly positive.
