What are Lignans?

Lignans are a highly studied and researched class of plant phytonutrients most abundantly found in flaxseed that have recently come to the forefront of nutritional research. Numerous studies have reported on the role of lignans in support of heart and hormonal health.

Flax Seed oil is a rich balanced source of essential fatty acids.  These beneficial fats play important roles in supporting brain, nerve, glandular and eye functions.  In addition, they are involved in the transport and metabolism of cholesterol and triglycerides.

Essential fatty acids are further metabolized into hormone-like substances in the cell known as prostaglandins.  Prostaglandins are involved in the regulation of many important physiological functions.


Rich in essential fatty acids, or EFAs, flaxseed oil is used to prevent and treat heart disease and to relieve a variety of inflammatory disorders and hormone-related problems, including infertility. A source of fiber, the flax plant also boasts a long history as a healing herb.

Today, flaxseeds are best known for the therapeutic oil that is derived by pressing them. Flaxseed oil has earned a great reputation for treating a variety of ailments ranging from heart disease to lupus & other autoimmune diseases.
