Flaxseed, Linum usitatissimum, is just what it sounds like - the seed of the flax plant. The typical
use of flaxseed is as a source of the essential fatty acids linolenic acid (LN) and linoleic acid (LA). Now research has shown that some of the health benefits associated with flaxseed consumption are due to the presence of compounds known as lignans (SDG), which are known to possess various pro- estrogenic properties.

In recent years there has been increased interest in the effect of flax seed components on human health. Although much of this interest has focused on the effects of the omega-3 fatty acids present in high levels in flax seed oil, there has been increasing interest in the non-oil components, particularly the lignan fraction. This interest has been driven by the observation that the flax lignan, secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG).
SDG is the precursor of the major mammalian lignans, enterodiol (EL) and enterolactone (ED). In another words, EL and ED is metabolites of SDG.
Studies showed SDG had estrogenic and antioxidant activities, also had anticarcinogenic, antiatherogenic and antidiabetic activities.
