    Flax lignans: are they good for males?

    A lot of web articles push high-lignan flax oil for men, claiming all sorts of benefits. But the lignan is apparently also a phytoestrogen. Brink doesn't like:

    This site recommends flax oil with lignans for men:

    (Of course, another option is to chuck flax oil altogether and just dose up on Sesamin and fish oil!)

    A lot of coaches use flax hulls for estrogen detoxification. They are much more expensive than regular flaxseed.

    Flaxseed oil has a high tendency to be rancid before you even get it out of the shop!
