Prostate health

Studies suggest that lignans and enterolactone (ENL)help maintain a healthy prostate.* In vitro studies suggest that this may partially be due to interactions with factors in the body such as aromatase and sex-hormone binding globulin.*(1) Animal studies have found that 7-hydroxymatairesinol promotes prostate health.*(2) Large population studies with middle aged and older men have found that increased intake of lignans and higher blood levels of ENL are associated with helping promote prostate health.*(3,4)
