Our world is changing…

There are chemicals in everything! Every time we eat, breathe, apply a lotion or cosmetics and even in our healthy foods, country air, medications and supplements there are weird chemicals. Some of these chemicals have estrogenic or hormone-disrupting effects, others can change the way we detoxify and process all of our own body toxins, hormones, neurotransmitters and waste creating all sorts of problems.

Toxins are everywhere!

Exposure to the following factors may be associated with “estrogen issues” by changing how our body reacts to and detoxifies accumulated estrogen:

  • Plastics
  • Pesticides
  • Fertilizers
  • Petrochemicals
  • Pollution
  • Foods
  • Cosmetics
  • Sunscreens
  • Genetics
  • Family history of Oestrogen dominance
  • Inherited genetic MTHFR gene polymorphisms
  • HRT and certain oral contraceptive pills
  • “Xenoestrogens”
  • EDC’s (endocrine disrupting chemicals)
  • Iodine deficiency and/or hypothyroidism
  • Folate deficiency

Natural support As mentioned previously, toxic exposure changes how we process chemicals in general. The enzymes needed to process toxins are the same enzymes that are needed for the general maintenance of hormones and our own internal toxins we make every day. If certain processes are sped up, slowed down or switched off; that can create all sorts of imbalances all over your body.

You can use specific foods and supporting nutrients to support your body’s natural detoxification and elimination pathways to help maintain healthy function in your body.

Broccoli Sprout, kale, daikon radish*[5] and Rosemary.

Broccoli sprouts, kale and daikon radish are considered very healthy vegetables. They have a particular compound in common, these foods are high in different forms of glucosinolates that create a natural chemical called Sulforaphane. Studies have found that glucosinolate containing vegetables and in particular sulforaphane activates Nrf2 in the body. Activating Nrf2 supports healthy detoxification of estrogen to help to maintain normal estrogen levels.[6][7]*

These Brassica plants along with other herbs like Rosemary also interact with the detoxification enzymes to help “reboot” the detoxification pathways so they continue to function normally even after toxic exposure.

Vitex agnus Castus

Vitex is well known to have beneficial effects in women’s menstrual health. Vitex may help support a healthy menstrual cycle.[9]

Kelp and Iodine

Fucus vesiculosus (Bladderwrack) extract is a form of seaweed/kelp, that naturally contains Iodine.[11]* Iodine is deficiency can create many inefficiencies in multiple hormonal systems of the body, supplying adequate dietary iodine is also important to maintain proper hormone levels and estrogen metabolism. *

Folate

Folate is an essential nutrient for a natural detoxification process called methylation which is necessary to maintain proper hormone function.* It is important to maintain adequate dietary folate to prevent deficiency. Folate is involved in multiple systems and pathways in the body but it is extremely important in helping to maintain healthy estrogen levels. *[12]
