Lignans are phytoestrogens that promote improved levels of stronger estrogens such as estridiol, and the ratio of testosterone to DHT.
The main lignan in flax seed is secoisolariciresinol diglucoside or SDG. When SDG is taken internally, it is metabolized by the intestinal bacteria into the human lignans enterodiol and enterolactone. From there it is transported to the liver and further metabolized before entering the circulation.
According to LinumLife.com, lignans are scientifically related to many beneficial effects on health such as: prostate health, hair loss, acne prevention, antioxidant protection, menopause, bone health, cholesterol & blood sugar support.
