What are Flax Hull Lignans?
Flax hull lignans are naturally occurring chemicals within the outer flaxseed hull. These lignans with intimidating names like secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) are considered to be phytoestrogens, natural occurring plant chemicals that mimic the estrogen hormone. Specifically, it is the SDG flax hull lignans that help balance estrogen levels in the body.
When separated from the main portion of the seed the flax lignan "Secoisolariciresinol Diglucoside" becomes very concentrated, which makes Fem-Flax® a strong protagonist against hot flashes and night sweats.
Again, the active ingredient in Fem-Flax seems to encourage and promote positive estrogen charistics and therefore, helps create a balance of this hormone.
During menopause, when the body may be low in estrogen, Fem-Flax can help the body think it has more estrogen thus helping relieve some of the uncomfortable side effects such as hot flashes and night sweats.
