Lignans

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Lignans contain powerful agents that assist in cancer and heart disease prevention and help maintain bone strength.

Lignans don’t get much press but research shows the many ways these dietary components help maintain optimal health.

Lignans represent one of the four major classes of chemical compounds referred to collectively as phytoestrogens.

Large quantities of legnans are present in foods ranging from whole grains to berries, vegetables, legumes, and other fruits.

The March issue of Life Extension tells a whole story on Lignans. www.lef.org
