Estrogen is the name given to an important group of compounds that affect the growth and function of tissues throughout the body, including the tissues responsible for reproduction. It plays a significant role in maintaining cardiovascular function, helps keep our bones healthy, and has a strong influence over our mood and behavior. In other words, both men and women need estrogen in appropriate levels to maintain optimum health.
Unfortunately, most of us live in a world that is detached from nature. Our environments are becomingly increasingly polluted, our lifestyles are becoming more sedentary and our food is much more toxic than ever before. All of these factors can greatly destabilize our estrogen levels, causing us to suffer from fatigue, low libido, insomnia, depression, cravings, weight gain, and many other symptoms associated with a hormone imbalance.
For this reason, it’s important that all of us make some effort to help stabilize our estrogen levels. This article provides three major steps that help us achieve this important, health-boosting goal.
