Supplements for Hormonal Health




This is the last in my series of posts on estrogen dominance, so be sure to go back and check out the ones you missed!


Estrogen dominance can be confusing and frustrating—especially because the conventional medical system has little to offer in the way of solutions.


Bringing hormones back into balance requires a commitment to healthy habits, but we can support the process with targeted nutritional supplements.


Here are 3 categories of supplements to consider:


💊 Gut Support (for estrogen elimination):


● DIM (di-indolyl-methane) comes from cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli. It supports healthy metabolism of estrogen into preferable rather than harmful forms.


● Calcium-d-glucarate slows down the beta-glucuronidase enzyme in the gut. That means estrogen will be less likely to recirculate into the body and more likely to exit in the stool.


● Probiotics support a healthy microbiome, which keeps beta-glucuronidase in check and supports healthy bowel movements.


💊 Liver Support (for estrogen metabolism):


● Magnesium is a cofactor for many enzymes, including liver enzymes involved in estrogen metabolism.


● Vitamin B6 supports the liver in metabolizing estrogen. It also supports the production of progesterone, which is needed to balance estrogen.


💊 Hormone Support (for estrogen-progesterone balance):


● Zinc supports the production of FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone), which promotes ovulation—leading to increased progesterone.


● Grape seed extract may be one of several plant compounds able to block the action of aromatase, meaning less estrogen production.
