Vitacost Flax Seed Lignan Extract Description

What is Flax Seed Lignans?
Flax Seed Lignans is a high-quality extract of lignans from flax seed. Lignans are natural plant compounds that have been intensively studied for their phytoestrogenic effects.
Characteristic for phytoestrogens, lignans can weakly bind to estrogen receptors. A sufficient level of lignans can compete with natural estrogen for estrogen receptors, helping to balance estrogen levels. This basic mechanism has different effects in men and women.
The main lignan in flax is secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG). When ingested, micro-organisms in the colon convert SDG into enterodiol and enterolactone, the so-called mammalian lignans. These are the body's own active forms of lignans.
