Which of these estrogen sweeping foods are you gettin’ in daily?




🥦BRASSICA/CRUCIFEROUS VEGETABLES: these are amazing at supporting liver detoxification processes & helping with estrogen metabolism. Make sure to include broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, collard greens, kale, cauliflower as often as you can.⁠⁠

⁠⁠

🍎FIBER: is critical for healthy bowel movement. Fiber is a natural source that binds to estrogen that is excreted by the liver & brings it into the intestinal tract for elimination. We want to aim for 30-35g of fiber per day. Fiber rich foods include flax seeds, lentils, all sorts of veggies, oatmeal, apples, pears etc.⁠⁠


🥬WHOLE FOODS: means eating food in its natural form. A diet high in processed foods, refined carbs & sugar disrupts our hormones which in turn can lead to other imbalances in the body, namely estrogen. Focus on dark leafy greens, root vegetables, kale, avocado, berries, nuts & seed


✅PROBIOTIC FOODS: essential for metabolism of hormones. They also reduce the risk of bad bacteria converting estrogen back into the bloodstream. Probiotics also promote regular bowel movements. Include sauerkraut, kefir, kombucha, kimchi or cultured veggies. ⁠⁠⁠


⁠⁠💦WATER: although technically not a food, water is needed for all bodily functions including healthy bowel movements. Remember we must poop to get rid of estrogen! Aim for 2-3 litres of filtered water daily.


⭐FLAXSEEDS: contain lignans that help balance hormone metabolism and block the negative effects of excess estrogens. 2 Tbsp. of ground flaxseeds per day is great!⁠⁠


🥑HEALTHY FATS: are needed to support healthy hormones.The body is not able to produce certain sex hormones like progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone without cholesterol. One of the ways the body makes cholesterol is by consuming enough healthy fats. Include avocados, walnuts, olive oil, nuts, seeds etc.
