New Life’s Dawn Lignan Mix
New Life’s Dawn Lignan Mix® is a special formula of natural plant powders containing several important natural ingredients, which are vital for nutrition, hormonal balance and well being, particularly for those over 45 years.
These essential ingredients include:
- Chia Seeds Plant lignans x 4
- Essential fatty acids x 4 Dietary fibre
- Poly-fructose Organic lecithin
Plant lignan precursors are found in seeds, whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables. Flaxseeds are one of the richest dietary sources. Diets rich in food containing plant Lignans such as New Life’s Dawn Lignan Mix® are consistently associated with reduction in cardiovascular disease risk.
Flaxseeds also contain very high levels of phytonutrients unique to flax that powerfully inhibit prostate, breast and colon cancers. However, these protective nutrients and lignans are not present in significant quantities in flaxseed oil, only in the whole seed. The whole seeds are tiny and therefore, difficult to chew, they typically pass through the body often undigested causing their beneficial nutrients to be lost. Therefore we have chosen to grind the flax seeds along with the other ingredients and other whole seeds such as organic linseeds and linola to make our Lignan Mix formula unique.
Essential Fatty Acids
The basic building block of Omega 3 fat is alpha-linoleic acid (ALA). New Life’s Dawn Lignan Mix® is a combination of vegetable powders including Chia Seeds, ground flaxseeds, linola and linseeds. CHIA hold one of the highest concentration of plant Omega 3s, a fat which is much needed in the diet. Omega 3 fats are healthy fats that reduce inflammation causing arthritis and allergies, help to inhibit cancer development and protect our blood vessels. Omega-3 fats are also proven to decrease the risk of cardiovascular diseases, including lowering of cholesterol, blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Raynauds disease and other immune diseases.
New Life’s Dawn Lignan Mix® contains poly-fructose which is also an excellent source of Dietary Fibre which promotes regularity and supports the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. Our colons are lined with tube like extensions called “VILLI”. Nutrients are absorbed by these Villi, however, an inactive or dirty colon can cause the Villi to become clogged. Daily intake of soluble and insoluble fibre can keep your Villi clean and clear, cleansed and detoxified.
Organic lecithin, the Soya Extract, in our New Life’s Dawn Lignan Mix®, is natural phospholipids. It aids the digestion of fats by helping to emulsify and digest fat and cholesterol. It enhances the metabolism of cholesterol and prevents fat particles from sticking to blood platelets and arterial walls. Organic Lecithin also assists the absorption of fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K and is important for healthy nerve tissue.
The organic Soya Extract in New Life’s Dawn Lignan Mix® also provides a source of phyto-oestrogens which is shown to help adjust ageing imbalance such as hot flushes, insomnia, mood swings and low energy in menopausal women.
A daily serving of New Life’s Dawn Lignan Mix® contains 50% of the recommended intake of folate for women of childbearing age.
Folate is a water-soluble B vitamin that is needed for healthy growth and development. It helps to produce and maintain new cells, which is important during periods of rapid cell division and growth such as infancy & pregnancy. Folate helps prevent changes to DNA that may lead to cancer and it is needed by adults and children to make red blood cells and prevent anaemia.
