Two other important anti-estrogenic foods are onion and garlic. In both, the active ingredient is the antioxidant flavonoid quercetin.

Estrogen dominance can be problematic and play a role in health conditions in women including PMS and breast/ovarian cancers. Dietary strategies that may help lower estrogen levels include minimizing soy intake, eating hormone-free meats, eating cruciferous vegetables, maintaining adequate fiber and increasing vitamin B6.
