What is HMRlignan™?

HMRlignan™ is a naturally occurring plant lignan, 7-hydroxymatairesinol (7-HMR), from the Norway spruce (Picea abies). In humans, 7-HMR is a direct metabolic precursor of the mammalian lignan, enterolactone (ENL). Pharmacokinetic data in both postmenopausal women and young men have clearly shown that HMRlignan™ significantly increases blood levels of ENL.  When taken daily, it has been shown to provide an ongoing increase in blood levels of ENL in 4 to 8 week clinical studies.

As a low-dose, direct ENL precursor, HMRlignan™ offers the health benefits of other lignan sources – such as flax lignans – in a low cost, low dosage and highly bioavailable form.
