Lignans Flaxseed estrogen progesterone anovulatory

Hello Everyone,

I read sometime ago, about a women who was cured of fibroid tumors by taking fresh ground flaxseed (in a smoothie) everyday. (She also change her diet and lifestyle) So, I thought the article below was interesting and thought I should share.

Does any one know how many tablespoons in 10g of flaxseed?

Thanks so much,


Lignans- These compounds are found in fiber-rich foods such flaxseed and other oil seeds, whole grains, legumes, and vegetables. Lignans stimulate the production of SHBG in the liver, and therefore reduce the levels of free estrogen insulation. They also inhibit aromatase activity, thus decreasing conversion of testosterone and androstenedione into estrogens in fat and breast cells. Lignans also have been shown to inhibit estrogen-sensitive breast cancer cell proliferation. Women consuming 10g of flaxseed per day experienced longer menstrual cycle length, increased progesterone-to-estrogen ratios, and fewer anovulatory cycles, all of which were considered to reflect improved ovarian function.
