WHAT ARE LIGNANS?
A Lignan is a phytoestrogen (plant estrogen) found in the hulls of flaxseed, sesame seeds, and other plant sources. This phytonutrient is classed as a polyphenol. They can also be found in rye, barley, seeds, and fresh fruits and vegetables, but flaxseed has the highest concentration of lignans found in any natural food source. The main lignan in Flaxseed is SDG. When eaten, SDG is converted in the body to enterolactone and enterodiol. These two mammalian lignans are linked to better health in both men and women.
Why just the hulls? It takes 20 lbs of flaxseed to get just 1 lb of flaxseed hulls (lignans). Lignans for Life provides you a concentrated form of flax hull lignans that allows you to get the recommended amount of lignans without eating several pounds of flaxseed.

Lignans for Life utilizes a revolutionary process to extract the hulls of the flax seed from the meat of the flaxseed (the embryo) without using any chemicals. Our flaxseed extract makes it possible for you to have a flaxseed supplement instead of ingesting large quantities of bulk flaxseed. Flax oil does not naturally contain any lignans. Flax oil products that claim “high lignan content” contain 2% concentration levels of lignan at best. Lignans for Life offers the highest concentration of lignans in any supplement available. Each capsule contains 35mg of SDG lignans.** Our suggested serving of Lignans for Life consists of 3 easy to swallow flaxseed capsules. Each serving contains 690 mg of full-spectrum lignans and 105 mg of all-natural chemical-free SDG lignans.
