Diglycoside (SDG) Flax Lignans Flaxseed Oil EXtract Flaxseed hull EXtract Lignans SDG Linum usitatissimum Secoisolariciresinol Diglycoside


Secoisolariciresinol diglycoside, or SDG, is a plant lignan most notably found in flaxseed (linseed). SDG is classified as a phytoestrogen since it is a plant-derived, nonsteroid compound that possesses estrogen-like activity. SDG has weak estrogenic activity. The level of SDG in flaxseed typically varies between 0.6% and 1.8%.

Lignans are one of the two major classes of phytoestrogens; the other class is the isoflavones. Plant lignans are polyphenolic substances derived from phenylalanine via dimerization of substituted cinnamic alcohols. Mammalian lignans are lignans derived from plant lignans. For example, following ingestion, SDG is converted to the aglycone secoisolariciresinol, which is then metabolized to the mammalian lignans enterolactone and enterodiol. Most of the effects of oral SDG are mediated by enterolactone and enterodiol.

The molecular formula of SDG is C32H46O16, and its molecular weight is 686.71 daltons. The aglycone of SDG is also known as 2, 3-bis (3-methoxy-4-hydroxybenzyl) butane-1, 4-diol. Enterolactone is also known as trans-2, 3-bis [(3-hydroxylphenyl) methyl]-butyrolactone. It is represented by the following structural formula:

Secoisolariciresinol diglycoside ACTIONS AND PHARMACOLOGY


SDG has estrogenic and antioxidant activities. It may also have antiestrogenic, anticarcinogenic, antiatherogenic and antidiabetic activities.


SDG, as well as its mammalian lignan metabolites, enterolactone (EL) and enterodiol (ED), have weak estrogenic activity as measured in in vivo and in vitro assays.

SDG, EL and ED have a number of antioxidant activities, including inhibition of lipid peroxidation and scavenging of hydroxy radicals. SDG also has anti-platelet-activation factor (PAF) activity. PAF can induce the release of reactive oxygen species from neutrophils. SDG, via its metabolite EL, has been found to inhibit estrogen synthase (aromatase) and to stimulate the synthesis of gender hormone binding globulin (SHBG). Both of these actions could account for the possible anti-estrogen activity of SDG.

The possible anticarcinogenic, antiatherogenic and antidiabetic activities of SDG are thought to be due, in large part, to the antioxidant activities of its metabolites EL and ED.


SDG, following ingestion, is transported to the large intestine, where it is hydrolyzed by bacteria to the aglycone secoisolariciresinol. Secoisolariciresinol, in turn, is metabolized by bacteria in the large intestine to the mammalian lignans EL and ED. EL and ED are absorbed from the large intestine. Little is known about the distribution of EL and ED to the various tissues of the body. It is known that ED and EL undergo conjugation in the liver with glucuronate and sulfate. The glucuronate and sulfate conjugates of ED and EL are excreted in the urine and in the bile.

There appears to be considerable individual variation in the absorption and metabolism of the SDG metabolites ED and EL.


There is evidence in in vitro and animal research that SDG may have some ability to reduce cholesterol levels and protect against atherosclerosis; it may also have some anticancer and antidiabetic effects.


Rabbits fed a high-cholesterol diet supplemented with flaxseed had 46% less atherosclerotic development than rabbits fed the same diet without flaxseed. Still better results were obtained (73% reduction in atherosclerosis) when the diet was supplemented with SDG instead of flaxseed. These effects were associated with reduced serum levels of cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol and increased levels of HDL-cholesterol.

SDG has exhibited a number of anticancer effects in in vitro and animal studies. SDG-treated rats were significantly protected against experimentally induced mammary cancer in one experiment. Subsequently, it was demonstrated that SDG significantly inhibited experimentally induced mammary tumor multiplicity in a dose-dependent fashion in rats, with more inhibition at higher doses. Flaxseed alone did not significantly affect tumor size, multiplicity or incidence in this study, but both flaxseed and SDG delayed progression of tumorigenesis. In another recent animal study, supplemental SDG decreased metastatic pulmonary melanoma tumor size in a dose-dependent fashion, compared with controls. Research continues.

In an animal model of human type 1 diabetes, SDG was said to significantly prevent this form of diabetes. Prevention was associated with a decrease in the serum and pancreatic lipid peroxidation product malondialdehyde. The researcher concluded that IDDM is mediated through oxidative stress and that SDG reduces this stress and thus helps prevent development of diabetes. In another experiment, SDG significantly prevented the development of streptozotocin-induced diabetes in rats. Clinical trials are needed.



SDG is contraindicated in those who are hypersensitive to any component of an SDG-containing product.


Pregnant women and nursing mothers should avoid the use of SDG supplementation.

Women with estrogen receptor-positive tumors should discuss the advisability of the use of SDG-containing products with their physicians before deciding to use them.


There are no reports of overdosage.


SDG nutritional supplements are currently being developed, and there are no dosage recommendations at present.

SDG is present in flaxseed at levels of 0.6% to 1.8% and in much smaller amounts in flaxseed oil.
