Some things to consider with flax:
“Because flaxseed contains estrogen-like chemicals, the effects of other agents believed to have estrogen-like properties may be altered.
Use flaxseed (not flaxseed oil) cautiously in women with hormone-sensitive conditions, due to its possible estrogenic properties. “
Personally, not a fan of flax because of its estrogen like activity. Over a long period of time, It gave me prostate issues– Just my experience. Others it may vary…
I found flax to have much stronger estrogen like properties than soy.
