Two other important anti-estrogenic foods are onion and garlic. In both, the active ingredient is the antioxidant flavonoid quercetin. Known for its immuno-supporting and liver-detoxifying proper- ties, quercetin has also shown the capacity to inhibit the enzymes that synthesize estrogen when applied in high concentrations.
Avocados are an anti-estrogenic food, meaning they have the ability to block estrogen absorption in the body while promoting the production of progesterone in women and testosterone in men. They will help balance estrogen levels for better health. Another interesting bit of info about these little nutritional powerhouses; we hardly ever think of avocados as a cleansing food but they will help lower cholesterol while blocking artery-destroying toxins. Avocados contain glutathione,
Reducing Exposure to Xenoestrogens. (one of the most common causes of estrogen dominance is this class of man-made compounds that mimic the effects of natural estrogens in the body.) Great tips, and specifically, a list of foods you really need to purchase organically...the ones with the highest residues of xenoestrogens and endocrine disruptors.
Did you know? 1-2 raw carrots a day can help detoxify excess estrogen in the colon? Excess estrogen (caused by protein malnutrition in the liver to allow proper detoxification of estrogen, or by a progesterone deficiency) mimics the effects of aging (accelerating aging), increases cancer risk, and decreases the body's ability to use oxygen? http://on.fb.me/12XOjIx
