K9 Select brand lignans are tasty peanut butter flavored tablets that your dog will love! Like our Lignans for Life HMR lignans, our K9 Select lignans are sourced from the same Norwegian spruce tree knots. HMR is short for hydroxymatairesinol, which is metabolized in the body into a powerful antioxidant that prevents or limits oxidative stress throughout the body and supports the immune system. Many studies indicate that high amounts of lignans in the body may reduce cortisol and other hormone levels and promote healthy reproductive organs.

Lignans Health Benefits
Lignans are excellent for balancing hormone levels in the body. Specifically, lignans have been shown to reduce cortisol and other adrenal steroids and to exert anti-estrogenic effects. Such anti-estrogenic effects include the prevention of naturally occurring hormones from binding to estrogen receptors and exerting their negative effects. Lignans provide a weaker form of estrogen. Thus, they are believed to be helpful in balancing out both estrogen deficiencies (by supplying phytoestrogens to otherwise inactive receptors) and excesses (through at least two separate mechanisms – first, by competing with much stronger estrogen for the same receptors and second, by inhibiting aromatase activity).

Lignans are converted in the body into the mammalian lignans (enterolignans) enterodiol and enterolactone. Enterolignans have been shown to be potent antioxidants. They reduce the free radicals that otherwise damage tissues, membrane lipids, nucleic acids, and proteins, and may lead to diseases or premature aging. Enterolignans also stimulate the synthesis of sex hormone binding globulin, effectively binding sex hormones and thereby reducing their circulation in the blood stream and thus their biological activity.
Some studies have indicated improved hair growth.
