Flax Seeds contain more naturally occurring lignans than any other source. Lignans are phytonutrients that have both soluble and insoluble fiber. Lignans are antioxidants that may also support the immune system and are excellent for balancing hormone levels in the body. In women, they help balance estrogen levels; in men, they help balance the testosterone-DHT relationship and inhibit certain enzymes needed to convert testosterone to DHT. This results in lower DHT levels, which may improve prostate health and may help maintain testosterone levels. In men, women, and animals, lignans inhibit HSD enzyme, which helps reduce levels of the stress hormone, Cortisol. They also have anti-estrogenic effects and can prevent naturally occurring (and sometimes radical) hormones from binding to estrogen receptors and exerting their negative effects. Lignans provide a weaker, cleaner estrogen to balance any deficit or surplus. BioNatures "Lignan-10" 100% pure, and 10% lignans in every bottle, (twice the average) is available in a unique protective, light-proof HDPE bottles that do not interact with the oil. BioNatures was the first company to introduce cold-pressed, organic flax oil to the US in 1988. It was made to the exacting standards of Dr. Johanna Budwig
, a pioneer in the research of the nutritional value of the oil. It is still made that way today. Recognized as the best, safest source of omega 3 in the world, flax oil has an impressive array of health benefits to its credit.
