Maintaining a balance of the hormone estrogen is the primary key to the health of breasts, ovaries and the uterus.

Seven Practical and Proven Ways to Maintain Estrogen Balance

  1. Go organic—Assures minimum exposure to toxic chemicals like pesticides and bovine growth hormones that mimic estrogen in a woman’s body.
  2. Maintain normal weight—Fat cells actually produce and store estrogen.
  3. Eat broccoli—Broccoli contains an estrogen-balancing chemical called indole-3-carbinol. Try to get 4 or more servings per week. If raw broccoli is too crisp for your taste, lightly steam a pot of it so that it has just a slight crunch to it; then refrigerate it and include in a daily salad. Steaming actually opens up the cell wall to release nutrients. Just don’t oversteam or microwave the broccoli, which will destroy most of its nutrients. You can also try an indole-3-carbinol supplement like BioDIM.
  4. Exercise—A significant factor that places the odds in your favor of maintaining female health. Exercise reduces stress, improves sleep and helps excrete surplus hormones.
  5. Get to sleep by 10 pm—The sleep hormone melatonin decreases the amount of estrogen the body produces. If you go to bed late, your melatonin levels don’t rise as high because you’re exposed to darkness for a shorter period of time.
  6. Eat foods that have a low Glycemic Index (GI)—High insulin levels trigger an increase in estrogen. Check the GI of your favorite foods at and aim for foods with a GI of 50 or less. To lower the GI of your entire meal, try a supplement like FenuLife.
  7. Drink water and limit consumption of alcohol—Water keeps the liver cleansed of toxins so that it can excrete hormones efficiently. Drink an ounce for every 2 pounds of body weight. Conversely, alcohol significantly compromises the liver’s ability to metabolize estrogen.

Important Supplements for Estrogen Balance
  • Turmeric—Regulates estrogen receptors and also enhances soy’s estrogen blocking properties.
  • Green Tea—Important antioxidant that helps keep the immune system strong, with emphasis on benefits for women’s health issues.
  • BioDim—Helps the body effectively metabolize estrogen with the same chemical compound found in broccoli.

Best Supplements for Five Other Women’s Health Issues
  • MenopauseBlack cohosh. 40 mg of a standardized extract twice per day helps control hot flashes.
  • PMS—Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). An Omega-6 essential fatty acid found in evening primrose oil, borage oil and black currant seed oil. It is a precursor of prostaglandins that regulate hormone and metabolic functions, helping to maintain stable moods and water balance.

"While all essential fatty acids are crucial for our diet, it is important to ensure that we have a balance of the omega-3s and omega-6s, and even a further balance between the different types of omega-6s. For example, someone who frequently gets their omega-3s by using flaxseed or oil in their meal preparation but does not have a source of GLA-rich omega-6s (as found in evening primrose oil or borage) can become deficient in GLA."

Lorna Vanderhaeghe has been a health journalist for more than 15 years and is co-author of Healthy Fats for Life.
  • Pre-PregnancyFolic Acid. Healthful diets with adequate folate may reduce a woman's risk of having a child with a brain or spinal cord defect. These birth defects are called neural tube defects or NTDs. Women need to take folic acid every day starting before they are pregnant. Optimal dose is 400 mcg per day.
  • Water Balance—LymphaSelect. An extract of yellow sweet clover stimulates lymph flow with natural coumarin compounds.
  • Bone HealthIpriflavone Complex. This combination of calcium, magnesium  and Ostivone ipriflavone can help to maintain bone density.
