Lignans May Benefit Women's Health in a variety of ways.
Lignans have the unique property of being able to balance hormones, especially estrogen. The lignans exert a weak estrogenic effect, if your estrogen levels are low you will get a boost of estrogen from the lignans. If your estrogen levels are high, the plant lignans will compete with your endogenous estrogen for estrogen receptors. Some of the weaker plant estrogen attach to your estrogen receptors and displaces your normally occurring estrogen leaving it nowhere to go. Your stronger estrogen gets flushed from your system leaving you with a combination of your endogenous estrogen and plant estrogen. The result is less estrogen effect in your body.
This balancing effect of estrogen can benefit many organs and systems in the female body.
