Our Own Opinions on Flax Hull Lignans*:
We at Save Me Products, Inc. prefer to only offer the Organic version of the product. We know conventional grown flax hull lignans are often cheaper and can have same benefits as the Organic type. However, modern conventional farming practices often include chemical application weed control during the flax plants growth stages. Also, common with modern conventional farming practices, is pre-harvest chemical application to kill/dry the flax and weeds, just for quicker/easier harvesting. Chemical applications on live flax plants ARE NOT ALLOWED by Organic farming practices. Organic growers follow much stricter guidelines, which we consider healthier. For those reasons, we only offer the Organic grown version, as that is what we prefer to use ourselves.
