Fibra o mucílago de linaza

A separate type of water soluble fiber called \'lignan\' is now being studied because of its effect in lowering womens risk for breast cancer. The highest food source for lignan is flax seed meal. Whereas flax seed oil contains a full range of essential fatty acids which can help reduce allergy related problems and inflammations as well as reducing the risk for heart disease, it contains no fiber, or lignan. This lignan is the part that seems to be able to prevent breast cancer as well as reduce the risk for recurrence in breast cancer survivors. One theory about how lignans work is that they bind estrogen, helping to reduce circulating estrogen levels in a womens body. But, more than other fibers, lignans can also be changed by gut bacteria, absorbed into the body and affect cancer cells in a way that makes them less able to multiply. While the exact mechanism for this action is still being elucidated, taking some flax seed meal (ground whole flax seeds) in a bowl of oatmeal in the morning seems wothwhile for those with an elevated risk for breast cancer, along with proper diet and nutritional supplements.
