FLAX SEED

Flax seeds, also known as linseeds, are small oil seeds that have gained popularity due to their numerous health benefits, including their potential role in cancer prevention and treatment.

Benefits in Fighting Cancer


  1. Inhibition of Cancer Cell Growth:

    • Flaxseed oil and its components have been shown to inhibit the growth of various cancer cell lines, including breast cancer and melanoma cells. This inhibition is often dose-dependent and involves mechanisms such as apoptosis (programmed cell death) and disruption of mitochondrial function.

  2. Reduction in Tumor Growth and Metastasis:

    • Studies have demonstrated that dietary flaxseed can reduce the growth and spread of tumors in animal models. For example, a study on mice showed that flaxseed reduced the growth rate of human breast cancer cells and decreased the incidence of metastasis.

  3. Enhancement of Chemotherapy Efficacy:

    • Flaxseed and its lignans have been found to enhance the efficacy of chemotherapy drugs. This is particularly relevant for breast cancer treatment, where flaxseed has been shown to maintain or increase the effectiveness of tamoxifen, a common chemotherapy drug.

Disclaimer: While the organic ingredients contained within FightBack Foods® have been studied to determine their practical potential for having anti-cancer properties and directionally beneficial nutrition, we do not provide medical claims or advice in this regard. If you have or suspect you have a medical issue, we recommend you consult with your trusted physician, oncologist, pharmacist, holistic adviser, or other licensed healthcare professional of your choice. 

 

Research: Obviously, food choices and diet are critical to a healthy everyday life, and even more so when fighting cancer at any stage. Now, after a decade of cancer-specific nutrition research and our own FightBack Foods® products development, we are more convinced than ever that intentional nutrition is imperative for any cancer battle. Importantly, our research over the past decade drove us to appreciate more than ever that naturally occurring nutrients found in a variety of foods, can greatly assist in the battle against cancer. 

 

Thus, we have attached primarily PUBMED sourced information about each ingredient used in our first product - FightBack Foods® Bites, and some of the relevant research that rationalizes each one’s use in our products. Even if you don’t buy our bites, please see the many benefits associated with each ingredient we use, and perhaps find some way to incorporate them into a daily diet with relevant nutrients necessary  to assist in anyone’s fight against cancer. 


PUBMED: PubMed is a free search engine accessing primarily the MEDLINE database of references and abstracts on life sciences and biomedical topics. The United States National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health maintains the database as part of the Entrez system of information retrieval. (As defined by Wikipedia)
