Estrogen: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Estrogen: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Understanding Estrogen

Understanding estrogen, the good, the bad and the ugly can be complex. Both men and women produce the hormone, estrogen.  Women naturally have higher levels due to their reproductive organs and for the purpose of procreation.  It is the primary source of women’s sex hormones and is mostly responsible for our reproductive health. Our bodies make these “good” or healthy estrogens and this is completely normal. Progesterone and these “good” estrogens can help to give us energy, boost our libido and in a healthy balance protect us from certain cancers. On the flip side, there are also “bad” estrogens or xenoestrogens, a type of hormone that mimics estrogen. Our body is not sure what to do with these “bad” estrogens and begins to see them as our own. Whenever there is an excess of any hormone in our bodies, an imbalance develops and health problems can occur.  This is particularly true when the body has too much “bad” estrogen.  This situation is called estrogen dominance. Estrogen dominance causes can include:

  • Increased exposure to xenoestrogens (found in certain plastics, beauty products, cosmetics and deodorants)
  • Use of synthetic estrogens
  • Poor diet and excess soy food

Xenoestrogens are found everywhere. The good news is that you can make the right health choices to positively impact your estrogen levels. It’s important to educate yourself and minimize your “bad” estrogen load.

  1. I am long past menopause and have been thinking of switching from Premarin to another form of estrogen. I found this to be interesting and would appreciate more information. dlf

    1. Likely Premier Estro-Flavone along with Dr. Peat’s Progest E Replenishing Oil Complex would be a good choice, though we suggest working with your doctor or practitioner to make the best choice in your situation.
