Lignans are capable of binding to estrogen receptors in the body, thereby preventing excess or ‘bad’ estrogen from promoting cancerous growths. They also have a weak estrogen effect that can serve as a natural and safe form of Hormone Replacement Therapy for post-menopausal women. This ability to both reduce or increase estrogen as needed has multiple benefits for both sexes. Hormonal balance is increasingly at risk from stress and chemicals in our environment, particularly from plastics such as cling-wrap, food containers and water bottles. This can lead to serious health risks.

Our strict ingredient policy means that you can always shop according to your values. Every item on FtN is checked to be better for the environment, socially responsible, good for you and free from toxic ingredients.

Lignans are a kind of plant polyphenol called phytoestrogen. The best sources of lignans are Flax Seed Hulls and Sesame Seed, with Flax Seed Hulls containing about 10 times as much lignans as Sesame Seed. These phytonutrients are converted to human lignans by bacterial action in the gut, called enterolactone and enterodiol. The main lignan in Flax Seed Hulls is Secoisolariciresinol Diglucoside or SDG.

Benefits for women

  • PMS/PMT and menopause symptoms can all be improved from taking Lignans.
  • Post menopause benefits reported are:
  • Less vaginal dryness
  • Better bone density
  • Fewer wrinkles
  • Better skin condition
  • Reduced hair loss an
  • Better mood
  • Most importantly: a reduced cancer risk

Benefits for men

  • Prostate health is improved and the risk of cancer is reduced significantly.
  • About 80% of men have prostate problems at some stage later in life.
  • Some studies show that hair loss is decreased.

General benefits
Lignans have powerful antioxidant qualities and therefore have beneficial effects for:

  • Blood pressure
  • Blood sugar
  • Cholesterol levels
  • All the other general benefits that antioxidants provide

Evidence suggests that Lignans are:

  • Antiviral
  • Antibacterial
  • Anti-fungal
  • Anti-parasitic
  • Anti-inflammatory

Lignans also modulate and strengthen the immune system, thereby helping in all health problems including auto-immune conditions.

To get enough lignans for therapeutic effect you would need to eat several tablespoons of ground fresh flaxseed per day. This may not be practical or advisable. Moreover, so-called High Lignan Flax Oil contains virtually no lignans at all.


Adults: 1 capsule daily or as directed by a health practitioner. Best combined with a good probiotic.


Not suitable for use during pregnancy or lactation.

I have bought and used this for four months and don see any change in the areas it is supposed to be working on. I am not sure but I keep buying it. Hopefully it will help sometime...

I purchased this product after reading that this can block the xenestrogens in your body. I can already see the improvement in the hormonal acne subsiding on my chin and jawline on the right side of my face :-) this sure beats trying to consume 4 tablesoons of flax seed daily. Will buy again

I am into my 2nd month with these and have seen no significant change but believe one must give it 2 - 3 months, so will persevere. It can only do good.
