Estrogen plays a critical role in female hormonal balance and fertility. The body naturally produces estrogen, but because we are inundated daily with xenoestrogens (harmful, exogenous estrogen), healthy estrogen levels can easily become situations of estrogen excess.
Liver-protective and activating herbs can help the body properly metabolize excess estrogen. Phytoestrogens and endocrine system supporting herbs can help to promote healthy estrogen levels and fertility. See many of these herbs below.
Estrogen conducts the intricate symphony of hormonal events that happen during the follicular phase of a woman’s menstrual cycle resulting in the release of a mature egg at ovulation. Estrogen also acts throughout the entire body by:
- helping control the menstrual cycle and cholesterol levels
- protecting bone health (in men too)
- impacting the brain and mood
- influencing libido/sex drive, the heart, vaginal secretions, the skin and many body tissues.
