90 capsules. 90 servings. Our Lignans for Life HMR Lignans are derived from Norway spruce trees, specifically the knots.

Lignans Health Benefits

Lignans are excellent for balancing hormone levels in the body. Specifically, lignans have been shown to reduce cortisol and other adrenal steroids and to exert anti-estrogenic effects. Such anti-estrogenic effects include the prevention of naturally occurring hormones from binding to estrogen receptors and exerting their negative effects. Lignans provide a weaker form of estrogen. Thus, they are believed to be helpful in balancing out both estrogen deficiencies (by supplying phytoestrogens to otherwise inactive receptors) and excesses (through at least two separate mechanisms – first, by competing with much stronger estrogen for the same receptors and second, by inhibiting aromatase activity).

Lignans are converted in the body into the mammalian lignans (enterolignans) enterodiol and enterolactone. Enterolignans have been shown to be potent antioxidants. They reduce the free radicals that otherwise damage tissues, membrane lipids, nucleic acids, and proteins, and may lead to diseases or premature aging. Enterolignans also stimulate the synthesis of sex hormone binding globulin, effectively binding sex hormones and thereby reducing their circulation in the blood stream and thus their biological activity. * Some studies have indicated improved hair growth. *

This supplement was recommended by my dog's Dermatologist

I have been using this supplement for years to help prevent cushings disease.
I would lo Iike to have this in powder form with a 10mm scoop so I would'nt have to break apart the capsule every morning in his food.
