notes on flax seed or organic hormone therapy

May 29, 2007 at 2:14 pm Leave a comment

Flax contains ~301129 µg phytoestrogens per 100 g

1000000 UG = 1 gram. Patients about to go under sex change surgery are injected with 2.5 to 5 miligrams of premarin. 1 gram = 1000 mg.

basically 100 g of flax contains about 3 MG of phytoestrogen.

you could pretty easily extract more than enough from 100 g of flax.

This does assume though that phytoestrogen is a good sub for the real thing (it doesn’t appear to be)

actually no it doesn’t. there’s a difference between pure estrogen and taking supplements that encourage the production of estrogen. Hence the effects of lignans would have to be measured in how much estrogen it actually causes your brain to produce if it does at all.
