New Life’s Dawn Lignan Mix® is a special formula and rich combination of natural wholefood plant powders containing five important natural ingredients, which are vital for good nutrition, hormonal balance and well being, particularly for those persons over 40 years.
These five essential ingredients include:
- Plant lignans
- Essential fatty acids
- Dietary fibre
- Organic soy extract
- Folic acid
By combining both Lignan Mix formula and Cryptomonadales Chlorella in your diet, you will ensure that you receive a dietary composition of nutrient values comparable to that of eating a Japanese diet everyday which includes fish and soy six times a week. In Western dietary terms, this combination of dietary wholefood supplements means that by simply adding these foods to your regular diet you are guaranteeing you receive non animal protein vitamins, minerals and micro-nutrients, essential fats and fatty acids, together with oestrogens to ensure a balanced healthy diet.
The average Australian diet is unquestionably low in Omega-3 fats – the ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 is around 20:1 when in fact it should be 2:1, similar to the Japanese. 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
- lowering of cholesterol and blood pressure (Hypertension)
- reducing risk of depression, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Raynauds disease and other immune diseases.
The basic building block of Omega 3 essential fatty acid is alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Lignan Mix is a unique combination of natural vegetable powders including the two highest plant forms of (ALA) – Chia and Linola (flaxseed). Linola is a special variety of flax-seed which is edible as opposed to linseed, and linola has been developed to improve oxidative stability.
The main source of Omega 3s comes from deep sea cold fish. However, to obtain such benefits a diet would need to include these fish 3 or 4 times per week. The Average Australian diet includes fish on average once per every two weeks and it is usually not deep sea cold water fish. The other problem with eating fish is the toxicity levels of mercury and other chemicals caused by the pollutants in the oceans.
By including the Lignan Mix in your diet, you increase your Omega-3 intake if you don’t eat enough fish, plus you get the added bonus of increased energy, balanced hormones, dietary fibre and folate which is also necessary for pregnant women.
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 anemia.
