Flaxseed Lignans are found in the hulls of the flaxseed. The embryo of the flaxseed has been removed. This mechanical process delivers a concentrated form of lignans 20 times more concentrated than regular flaxseed. Lignans have been studied extensively and studies indicate that people with high amounts of lignan in their bodies have reduced rates of reproductive organ cancers and reduced rates of colon cancer. The main Lignan in Flaxseed is secoisolariceresinol diglucoside (SDG) and when digested, the Lignan is converted in the body to enterodial and enterolactone. These two mammalian lignans mimic estrogen and attach to estrogen receptors blocking the extended exposure of potentially harmful natural estrogen in both men and women. This long term exposure to naturally occurring estrogen has been shown to be a leading cause of reproductive organ cancers. By blocking the naturally occurring estrogen, agitated hormone receptors calm down, hormones are more in balance and potentially harmful estrogen is then flushed from the body. Women have experienced mitgatged menopausal symptoms. Men have experienced increased hair growth. Many veterinarians recommend flaxseed hulls for treatment of Cushings disease which is a cancer in dogs.
