Some facts about Oestrogen

Oestrogen is a naturally occurring hormone in humans, needed for reproduction in men and women, bone growth and blood clotting.

Xenoestrogens (‘Xeno’, meaning foreign) are oestrogen compounds that come from a source outside of the body. When xenoestrogens enter the body they increase the total amount of oestrogen resulting in a phenomenon called, oestrogen dominance.

Xenoestrogens have been implicated in many conditions including: obesity, diabetes, breast, prostate and testicular cancer, infertility, endometriosis, early onset puberty and miscarriage.

Xenoestrogens are found in sprays and pesticides, household cleaners, skincare, make-up, fragrance, preservatives, nail polish, plastic bottles and containers, to name a few.

At Health For Life we have an excellent range of natural skin care, nail polish, suncream, haircare and beauty products to help you reduce your exposure to xenoestrogens.

Oestrogen is cleared from the body via the liver and bowel. Oestrogen balance is achieved by increasing fibre, supporting liver detoxification and ensuring adequate nutrient levels.
