How does flaxseed oil support health?

Flaxseed is the richest plant source of the health-promoting omega-3 fatty acid known as alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).1 Flaxseed oil is derived from the flax plant, Linum usitatissimum (which means “very useful”). It is one of the oldest crops known to humanity and has been cultivated since the beginning of civilization.2 The use of flaxseed oil, also known as linseed oil, to promote health has been mentioned in the works of Hippocrates, Qantes, and Dioscorides, as well as in medieval books on medicinal herbs in Asia and Europe.3

The ALA provided by flaxseed oil cannot be made by the human body.4 Consumption of flaxseed oil in a study of healthy older adults resulted in beneficial lipid profiles.5 Additional studies indicate that ALA from flaxseed supports heart health6 and increases levels of a protein called brain-derived neurotrophic factor, or BDNF, that promotes growth of new neurons and survival of existing neurons.7 In animal studies, dietary ALA reduces aggregation of platelets, resulting in improved blood flow.8*

How does iodine support thyroid health?

Iodine is an essential component of the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), and because these thyroid hormones are required for life, adequate intake of iodine is also essential for life.9 Lack of sufficient iodine intake results in inadequate thyroid hormone production, which in serious cases can result in neurological damage.10*

Since 1929, Standard Process has been the visionary leader in whole food nutrient solutions. We apply systems thinking to holistic nutrition that empowers practitioners to transform lives. Dedicated to the whole food philosophy of our founder, Dr. Royal Lee, our goal is to carry on his mission to provide nutrients for the body that are as close as possible to how they are found in nature.

Our products include foods that are prepared in a way that safeguards their nutritional value. The majority of these ingredients are grown locally on our certified organic farm and may require chopping, dicing, juicing, and/or drying for use in our products. The resulting whole food ingredients are then added to a formula that may include whole food extracts, animal tissue extracts and concentrates, botanicals, whole food isolates, and synthetic ingredients. These highly complex combinations contain a variety of elements designed to trigger trophic effects that support the body’s healthy balance and wellness.*
