Chemical Information
FooDB Name7-Hydroxymatairesinol
Description7-hydroxymatairesinol is a member of the class of compounds known as dibenzylbutyrolactone lignans. Dibenzylbutyrolactone lignans are lignan compounds containing a 3,4-dibenzyloxolan-2-one moiety. 7-hydroxymatairesinol is practically insoluble (in water) and a very weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). 7-hydroxymatairesinol can be found in sesame, which makes 7-hydroxymatairesinol a potential biomarker for the consumption of this food product. Hydroxymatairesinol (HMR) is a lignan found in Norway spruce (Picea abies). It is an enterolactone precursor with anticancer activities. In rats, HMR decreased the volume of induced tumours and stabilised established tumours, as well as preventing the development of new tumours. It has also shown anti-oxidant properties in vitro .
