HMRlignan™ Norway spruce
HMRlignan??? is a naturally occurring plant lignan, 7-hydroxymatairesinol, from the Norway spruce (picea abies). In humans 7-hydroxymatairesinol is a direct metabolic precursor of the mammalian lignan, enterolactone. Clinical research has shown HMRlignan??? to be a highly efficient enterolactone precursor. In a multiple dose 4 week-study with healthy volunteers, HMRlignan??? was well tolerated with no adverse effects. In addition to raising enterolactone levels HMRlignan??? also provides significant blood plasma levels of the strong antioxidant and free radical scavenger 7-hydroxymatairesinol.
