What is Vitacost Flax Seed Lignans.Vitacost 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 oestrogen receptors. A sufficient level of lignans can compete with natural oestrogen for oestrogen receptors, helping to balance oestrogen 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.How do flax seed lignans support health.Can help modulate oestrogen levels, thereby supporting some of the symptoms of menopause.*May support healthy cognitive function in women 20 to 30 years postmenopausal.*May support healthy bones.*Helps maintain prostate health.*Why choose Vitacost Flax Seed Lignans.Supplies 40 mg of lignans per capsule.Features LinumLife, a high-quality, standardised source of flax seed lignans.Contains 120 servings per bottle.Exceptional quality at an extraordinary value.About VitacostAll Vitacost products are laboratory tested to meet FDA standards for identity, purity and composition.
