The Health Benefits of Flaxseed Extract Powder Lignans

Cardiovascular Disease

Diets rich in foods containing plant lignans have been consistently associated with reductions in risk of 

cardiovascular disease. However, it is likely that numerous nutrients and phytochemicals found in these foods 

contribute to their cardioprotective effects. In a prospective cohort study of 1,889 Finnish men followed for 

an average of 12 years, those with the highest serum enterolactone levels were significantly less likely to die 

from coronary heart disease or cardiovascular disease than those with the lowest levels.

Ovarian and Uterine Health

Lignans have anti-estrogenic properties that mimic estrogen and bind to estrogen receptors but dont have the 

same antagonistic effects of estrogen. Plant estrogens are a cleaner form of "estrogen" and when more plant 

lignans are consumed, more of your normally occurring estrogen is flushed out of the body. It is believed that 

this is the mechansim behind the studies that indicate better Ovarian and uterine Health.

Prostate Health

A case-controlled study conducted in Scotland found that higher serum enterolactone concentrations were 

associated with better prostate health. Enterolactone is produced in the intestines by bacteria acting on lignans.

Flaxseed SDG may have a therapeutic role in lupus nephritis.Vegetarian men have better prostate health than 

omnivorous males. Plant lignans give rise to the mammalian lignans, enterodiol and enterolactone; the richest 

source is linseed . More about Better Prostate Health.

Colon Health

Flaxseed, the richest source of mammalian lignan precursors, such as secoisolariciresinol diglycoside, has been

 shown over the short term to decrease some early markers of colon health risk. Read more about this study 

and other studies on Better colon Health.

Hot Flashes and Menopause

A Mayo clinic study shows that, "lignans provide a more natural estrogen treatment for menopause and hot 

flashes than synthetic hormone therapy and therefore are a potentially healthier treatment for both." Sandhya 

Pruthi, MD. Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Published February 1, 2008 Read more about menopause relief.

Hair Health

There are studies that indicate that people with high amounts of lignans in their bodies have better hair health. 

Poor hair health can be caused by the hormone DHT. Flaxseed lignan can inhibit the production of the 

enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT. One asian study on men over a 6 month period showed 

significant improvement in hair health in an average of 2 months.

Canine Cushings Treatment.

Dr Jack Oliver DVM PhD issued a report in 2009 indicating that flaxseed lignans may be a good treatment for

 Canine Cushings disease. We did a survey of our customers in 2012 and 85% of those that responded said 

they saw improvements in an average of 2 months. Click here to see more on canine cushings disease 



Reactive oxygen species have been implicated in the development of diabetes mellitus. SDG isolated from 

flaxseed is an antioxidant. An investigation was made of the effects of SDG on the development of diabetes 

in rats, to determine if SDG can prevent/reduce the development of diabetes and if this prevention/reduction 

is associated with reduction in oxidative stress. RESULTS: SDG prevented the development of diabetes by
