Lignans

PTC recovers the most potent lignan from flaxseed possible. Lignans are substances found in the fibrous part of plant seeds, nuts, grains, legumes, fruits, some vegetables, and drinks such as tea, coffee and wine.1 The lignan of flaxseed has estrogen-like properties. Flaxseed contains up to 10 times more lignan than any other plant source.2

Bacteria in the gut convert flax lignan into mammalian lignans enterodiol and enterolactone.3 4 These compounds interact with estrogen receptors and reduce the risk of breast and prostate cancers,5 reduce the risk of uterine fibroids,6 help to maintain cognitive function in post-menopausal women,7 and reduce the risk of acute coronary events in men.8 The predominant lignan in flax is SDG (secoisolariciresinol diglucoside), which can act as an antioxidant and may help in the prevention of atherosclerosis, cancer and dementia.9 10 

Lignan 50 contains at least 50% SDG. Our Lignan 50 is one the most concentrated natural form of flaxseed lignan available.
