Lignans Health Benefits
Lignans are bioactive compounds found in nature that exhibit various biological properties, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antitumor activities. They are also considered to be phytoestrogens due to their steroid-analogous chemical structure.
As antioxidants, lignans help stop free radicals from damaging cells and slow down the aging process to improve overall health. As phytoestrogens, mimic the action of estrogen hormones and help balance the hormone levels in the body.
