MINNEAPOLISAcatris Inc. added LinumLife EXTRA to its line of LinumLife flax ingredients. The flax lignan extract is produced from flax hulls and is standardized to contain 20-percent SDG (secoisolariciresinol diglycoside), the main lignan in flaxseed. It can be used in capsules or tablets, and because of its high lignan content, one-per-day formulations can be developed, according to the company. The extract is also suitable for flax oil enrichment and cosmetic applications. LinumLife EXTRA is produced according to European Pharmacopoeia guidelines in a GMP- (good manufacturing practices) and ICP-certified process. Acatris has established a clinical study program to research LinumLife EXTRA to support the expansive research showing flax and lignans positive effects on health.
