Health Highlights of Boomer Lignans

  • Supports Hormonal Health in Men & Women (1a,b,c)
  • Supports Heart Health (2)
  • Strengthens Immune System (3)
  • Helps Improve Mood & Affect (4)

Boomer Lignans are powdered Flax Hulls containing highly beneficial phytonutrients or polyphenols, rich in SDG (Secoisolariciresinol Diglucoside) as well as Natural Plant-Based Omega-3s, Vitamin E, and B Complex. (1,2,3,4)

Supports Heart Health: Diets rich in foods containing plant lignans are consistently associated with reductions in the risk of cardiovascular disease.(2)

Strengthens Immune System: The ALA component of flaxseed influences immunity, the body’s ability to defend itself successfully against foreign substances. Lignans influence certain mediators of the immune response. (3)

Supports Hormonal Health in men and women with Naturally occurring Phytoestrogens:

  • Support Prostate Health (1c)
  • Promote Healthy Testosterone Levels (1c)
  • Supports Breast Health (1b)
  • Ease PMS/Menopause Symptoms(1a, 1b)
  • Promote Healthy Estrogen Levels (1b)

    Hormonal Health for Women: Lignans can aid in treating menstrual irregularity and reduce the frequency and intensity of hot flashes and help to stabilize emotional levels. Women consuming lignan-rich flaxseed products have reported a reduction in uncomfortable symptoms associated with menstruation and menopause. (1a,b)

    Hormonal Health for Men: Lignans inhibit certain enzymes needed in the conversion of testosterone to DHT. The result is lower DHT. High levels of DHT in the prostate are associated with a multitude of health issues that may include abnormal cells in the prostate, and difficulties with urination. Over time Lignans may reduce the levels of DHT and support prostate health. (1c)

    Your Mood and Affect often times are related directly to your brain health. Lignans are great at protecting the brain with the help of powerful phytoestrogens and polyphenols. (4a,b)
