Linwoods Health Foods has unveiled a new range of healthy seed blends with body functionality in mind. The exciting new Functional Range has been backed by NHS GP and regular medical contributor on ITV’s This Morning Dr Zoe Williams, who has been brought on by Linwoods as a brand ambassador for its latest targeted range of products.
The Functional Range, from Linwoods, which is based in Armagh, consists of two new products – Menoligna and Immune Support – formulated to naturally support and enhance the natural processes of the human body.
Menoligna is a plant-based blend of sprouted milled flaxseed and milled chia seeds, containing important vitamins, minerals and added Lignans. 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 per cent 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 cultures.
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.
Patrick Woods, Director for Linwoods, said: “We are delighted to bring our new Functional Range to the UK market.
“At Linwoods, we believe passionately that nutrition is the key to good health and plays a vital role in managing certain ailments.
“Our expert team has been busy crafting these nutritionally dense blends to ensure they are designed to maintain healthy body functionality. We look forward to hearing more about how they are benefitting our customers.
“We recommend that customers add a 30g daily serving of the Functional Range blends to their diet for optimal health benefits.
“Each versatile blend can be easily added to your favourite dish, from breakfast yoghurt and smoothies to soups and salads.
“Our plan is to expand our Functional Range later this year with additional product blends, providing our customers with even more choice when maintaining their health.”
Dr Zoe Williams, NHS GP and This Morning contributor, said: “These days women are more comfortable talking frankly and openly about the impact menopause has on their bodies.
“Unfortunately, menopause stigma can still stop some women from approaching their GP with medical concerns.
“It’s really important that women seek medical advice if struggling with their physical and mental health during this entirely natural, but sometimes distressing, process in their lives.
“Nutrition is also vital. It is great to see Linwoods designing products specifically with women in mind, so many of whom struggle during their perimenopause years due to hormonal changes happening within their bodies.
“Linwoods’ Menoligna blend offers a convenient way to add key nutrients into the diet to help regulate their hormones and help to maintain bone density, which can decrease during menopause.
“I was thrilled when Linwoods asked me to be involved in the launch of the Functional Range. I have been a regular consumer of their other products for years.”
n The Menoligna blend will be available in a 210g pack, priced at £7.49. The Immune Support blend will be available in a 210g pack, priced at £5.49.
The packaging in Linwoods Functional Range has been designed to be 100 per cent recyclable.
