Does flax seed inhibit aromatase (estrogen) or does it increase testosterone?

No.: Flaxseed is sometimes tried for cancer because it is broken down by the body into chemicals called “lignans.” lignans are similar to the female hormone estrogen - so similar, in fact, that they compete with estrogen for a part in certain chemical reactions. As a result, natural Estrogens seem to become less powerful in the body. Aromatase is not estrogen.

Estrogen : It can act like estrogen and it can decrease absorption from the fiber.
