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. Research on SDG has been extensive and very exciting.
