HMR Lignans 20 mg
HMR Lignans 20 mg For People or Dogs.90 capsules. 90 servings.
Our Lignans for Life HMR Lignans are derived from Norway spruce trees, specifically the knots. HMR is short for hydroxymatairesinol (HMR), which is metabolized in the body into a powerful antioxidant that prevents or limits oxidative stress throughout the body and supports the immune system. Many studies indicate that high amounts of lignans in the body may reduce cortisol and other hormone levels and promote healthy reproductive organs. *

Lignans Health BenefitsLignans are excellent for balancing hormone levels in the body. In females especially, they help balance estrogen levels; in males especially, they help balance the testosterone-DHT relationship and inhibit enzymes (such as 5α-reductase) needed to convert testosterone to DHT. (DHT is, essentially, a very potent form of testosterone (2-3 times more likely to bind to the relevant receptor than testosterone) and remains active in the body roughly twice as long as testosterone.) This results in lower DHT levels, which may improve prostate health and excess-testosterone-related conditions. Further reading here.*
Lignans also have anti-estrogenic effects and can prevent naturally occurring hormones from binding to estrogen receptors and exerting their negative effects. Lignans provide a weaker form of estrogen. Thus, they are believed to be helpful in balancing out both estrogen deficiencies (by supplying phytoestrogens to otherwise inactive receptors) and excesses (through at least two separate mechanisms – first, by competing with much stronger estrogen for the same receptors and second, by inhibiting aromatase activity).

ResearchLignans are converted in the body into the mammalian lignans (enterolignans) enterodiol and enterolactone. Enterolignans have been shown to be potent antioxidants. They reduce the free radicals that otherwise damage tissues, membrane lipids, nucleic acids, and proteins, and may lead to diseases or premature aging. Enterolignans also stimulate the synthesis of sex hormone binding globulin, effectively binding sex hormones and thereby reducing their circulation in the blood stream and thus their biological activity. *
There are numerous studies that indicate improved health from hormone balance, such as reduced rates of menopausal symptoms and maintaining prostate health. Some studies have indicated improved hair growth. *
