Vitacost Flax Seed Lignan Extract -- 40 mg - 120 Capsules

High-quality source of lignans from flax seed. Supports menopausal and post-menopausal women.*. What is Vitacost Flax Seed Lignans? Vitacost Flax Seed Lignans is a high-quality extract of lignans from flax seed. Lignans are natural plant compounds that have been intensively studied for their phytoestrogenic effects. Characteristic for phytoestrogens lignans can weakly bind to estrogen receptors. A sufficient level of lignans can compete with natural estrogen for estrogen receptors helping to balance estrogen levels. This basic mechanism has different effects in men and women. The main lignan in flax is secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG). When ingested micro-organisms in the colon convert SDG into enterodiol and enterolactone the so-called mammalian lignans. These are the body's own active forms of lignans. How do flax seed lignans support health? Can help modulate estrogen levels thereby supporting some of the symptoms of menopause.*. May support healthy cognitive function in women 20 to 30 years postmenopausal.*. May support healthy bones.*. Helps maintain prostate health.*. Why choose Vitacost Flax Seed Lignans? Supplies 40 mg of lignans per capsule. Features LinumLife a high-quality standardized source of flax seed lignans. Contains 120 servings per bottle. Exceptional quality at an extraordinary value.

Seed substitute!

"Ordinarily I add freshly ground flax seeds to my morning cereal for the added fiber and the protective lignans. But when I travel I use this product instead to continue the protection without the seeds."

Did not work for me
 August 26, 2008
"I had hoped that the flax seed lignans would relieve my hot flash/menopausal sweating, but it did not. I was taking 1-2 capsules a day for more than 2 weeks, and it did not alleviate it. Some days it seemed worse, but that was probably coincidental. Previously, I had been taking flax seed oil, which also did not have a positive effect."

"This is a great flax seed lignan product. This is good for so many things everyone should take it. I was starting to have hot flashes which were annoying. I didn't want to take hormones so I tried this. After one day, no more hot flashes! I swear by it now."
