Dietary lignans and enterolactone (ENL) have also been found to contribute to cardiovascular health.* Increased blood levels of ENL have been shown to reduce oxidation of blood lipids and promote cardiovascular health.*(1)  In a heart disease risk factor study in Kuopio, Finland, higher serum ENL levels were found to positively promote cardiovascular health in men.*(2)  The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES 1994-2004) examined lignan intake in 1,492 U.S. adults (males and females) and urinary excretion of enterolactone.(3) Higher urinary concentrations of enterolactone were found to correlate with cardiovascular health in both women and men.*
