LinumLife®- An exciting lignan extract from flax

Men’s health is influenced by several factors and one of them is related to hormonal levels. As men age, the level of testosterone in the body gradually decreases and, as a result of it, men experience physical and psychological symptoms. It is estimated that men lose approximately 1.6% of total testosterone per year after the age of 30-40. Health problems in aging men like benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and androgenetic alopecia (AGA) are suggested to be related to the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

Frutarom’s LinumLife is a unique flax ingredient rich in lignans. Lignans are intensively researched for their phytoestrogenic effects. The major lignan in flaxseed is secoiselarisenol-diglucoside (SDG) and it modulates testosterone metabolism by inhibiting the creation of dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

LinumLife has been proven to be effective addressing the cause and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), reducing hair loss caused by androgenic alopaecia (AGA) and improving skin appearance by reducing sebum production.
