Linwoods Health Foods launches Functional Range



Linwoods Health Foods has unveiled a new range of healthy seed blends, including Menoligna and Immune Support, formulated to naturally support and enhance the natural processes of the human body.

Menoligna is a plant-based blend of milled, sprouted flaxseed and milled chia seeds, with added flax lignans, as well as other vital vitamins and minerals. It has been specifically developed for women during the menopause stage of life.

Lignans are naturally occurring phytoestrogens found in flaxseed which mimic the role of oestrogen. Flaxseed is particularly abundant in the lignan, secoisolariciresinol diglycoside (SDG). Lignans are found in the inner layer of the flaxseed hull. Each 30g serving of Linwoods Menoligna offers 300mg of SDG lignans.

This blend also contains 96% of the daily recommended intake of Vitamin B6, which contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity, and vitamin B12 which can reduce tiredness and fatigue. Additionally, Menoligna contains Calcium, Vitamin D and K2 which contributes to the maintenance of normal bones.

Immune Support is specifically formulated to help maintain a healthy immune system. The blend includes Linwoods’ award-winning sprouted milled flaxseed, hemp seeds, milled brazil nuts and Ganeden BC30 probiotic, which provides beneficial bacteria to support digestive gut health and the immune system.

The blend also provides a natural source of selenium, iron and zinc, which contribute to the normal function of the immune system. Other immune boosting ingredients include omega-3, protein, fibre and a host of nutritious vitamins and minerals like vitamin D3, vitamin C and vitamin B12.

“We are delighted to bring our new Functional Range to the UK market,” said Patrick Woods, director for Linwoods. “At Linwoods, we believe passionately that nutrition is the key to good health and plays a vital role in managing certain ailments.
