How to Reduce Bad Estrogen: Try these 3 Vegetables- Thomas DeLauer… You know, estrogen is kind of like those Sour Patch Kids commercials. First it’s like really, really bad, and then they’re also really, really good. Honestly, estrogen just gets a bad rap sometimes, but the fact is, that we do have to understand how estrogen truly is in the body and if we know how it works, then we can have a little bit more … I guess respect for the good things it does in the body, but also have a lot more of a vengeance when it comes down to trying to get rid of the bad forms of estrogen.
What I’m going to do in this video is I’m going to explain the different kinds of estrogen. I’m going to give you three different kinds of vegetables that you can utilize that are a surefire way to help you out with removing estrogen out of your body or at least helping estrogen become the right kind of estrogen that can improve your life rather than hold you back.
The first thing we have to do is we have to take a look at the different kinds of estrogen in the body really quick. Again, estrogen is not all bad, but it’s also not all good. You see, the good kind of estrogen is known as 2-Hydroxy estrogen. It’s a very good estrogen. It actually helps support testosterone levels. It has powerful anti-cancer effects and it’s also known as an antioxidant in general. Believe it or not, estrogen has the ability to be good, but more than likely, you are overrun with what is called 16-hydroxy and 4-hydroxy estrogens, things like estradiol.
These are the estrogens that are not good. These are the estrogens that actually wreak havoc on your body and believe it or not and this is all going to make sense in a second, your body views estrogens like 16-hydroxys and 4-hydroxy estrogens as toxins. It literally treats them as poisons. It has to send them to the liver and it has to process them just in the same way as if you were to drink a bottle of Windex. Not literally, but the fact is, your liver has to process it just like it’s a poison.
What are some veggies that you can start consuming to take control of your estrogen levels? I’m going to give them to you. The first thing that you want to start focusing on is high amounts of cruciferous vegetables. This means broccoli, this means cauliflower, this means bok choy, it means Brussels sprouts. Quite honestly, they’re the good-tasting vegetables that still have their anti-estrogen effects, even when you cook them. You see, they contain something known as DIM, diindolylmethane. It sounds like such a crazy, fancy name but it’s really nothing that extravagant but its effect on estrogen is pretty darn powerful.
You see, it’s derived from indole-3-carbinol, also known as IC3. You see IC3 works in conjunction with the liver. It helps the liver metabolize the negative attributes of estrogen through the up-regulation of what is called CYP1A2. This is a specific enzyme that honestly we don’t have to go into a lot of detail about but it’s an enzyme that is responsible for taking estrogen and sort of unboxing it and getting rid of the bad portions of it and leaving the good portions of it.
You see, this CYP1A2 enzyme is able to take the estrogens that would normally cause testosterone to turn into more estrogen and it’s able to turn them into a kind of estrogen that can actually be advantageous for your overall healthy lifestyle.
