Flax Lignan SDG 78mg
Flax Lignan SDG contains lignans which have strong antioxidant activity. Antioxidants help protect our bodies and strengthen the immune system. Flaxseed and the Flax Lignan SDG (secoisolariciresinol-diglucoside) are recognized to be beneficial to our health. SDG is a lignan that is converted by colonic bacteria into enterolactone. SDG was one of the first lignan precursors identified in the human diet and is one of the most extensively studied. Studies show that populations whose diets contain high amounts of lignans maintain a higher level of health than those consuming lower levels of lignans. This fact attracted the attention of researchers who conducted clinical studies with flaxseed containing lignans. The study result suggests that lignans can promote prostate health, breast health, circulatory health, bone health and help women going through menopause. Daily consumption of whole flaxseed is usually 1 to 2 tablespoons and is a common amount used in research studies. Based on this amount of flaxseed, an average lignan intake would be approximately 50-150 milligrams per day.
