Flaxseed Lignans are found in the hulls of the Flaxseed. The embryo of the Flaxseed has been removed leaving flax hulls that are high in lignan content. This mechanical process delivers a concentrated form of lignans many times more concentrated than regular flaxseed. Each bottle contains 90 vegi-capsules and the jars of powder contain 7.6 oz per jar. The main Lignan in Flaxseed is Secoisolariciresinol Diglucoside (SDG) and when digested, the Lignan is converted in the body to enterodial and enterolactone. These two mammalian lignans mimic estrogen and attach to estrogen receptors. Plant estrogens have a weaker estrogenic effect than normally occurring (endogenous) estrogen. This process has the effect of balancing certain hormones. In men the plant estrogens block the conversion of testosterone into DHT helping men keep more testosterone and reduce DiHydrotestosterone (DHT) which has been indicated in prostate cancer and baldness. Lignans help women to balance estrogen levels. When estrogen levels are low the plant estrogen in the lignans will help increase the estrogen, when estrogen levels are high, the lignans compete with esttrogen displacing endogenous estrogens with cleaner lower potency plant estorgens. Women have experienced mitigated menopausal symptoms. Men take lignans for prostate health. Several studies show that lignans may help reduce cholesterol by as much as 20%. Many veterinarians recommend flaxseed hulls for Cushings disease in dogs. The lignans inhibit two enzymes needed in the production of Cortisol thus reducing cortisol levels which is a stress hormone.
Flaxseed Lignans are found in the hulls of the Flaxseed. The main lignan in flaxseed hulls is SDG Lignan. For men, women or pets it is recommended to take 1-2 mg of flaxseed lignans for each lb of body weight per day. The quick answer is a 30 lb dog would get a 30 mg capsule each day. An adult person would take 3-6 capsules per day of either the 26 mg, 33mg or 35 mg capsules depending on preference. For the bulk jars of flaxseed hulls powder take 1-2 large scoops per day. 80 mg of sdg lignan per scoop. there are 60 scoops in a jar. Once per day is sufficient. Always take plenty of water at the same time as when you take your flaxseed lignans. The lignans have both soluble and insoluble fiber components and therefore the lignan does not dissolve easliy in water. Mix flaxseed lignans with yogurt or a in a smoothie for ease in taking the powder. Capsules are easier and more conveninet to ingest. Just take with a glass of water.
