Oestrogen is the hormone that most defines you as a women.
Externally, she gives you hips and breasts and internally she manages your mood. Oestrogen adjusts your serotonin (happy hormone) levels – which is why she’s sometimes referred to as nature’s Prozac.
With over 300 roles within the body she’s the ultimate multi tasker – just like you!
When your oestrogen levels are balanced your skin is smooth and hydrated so your wrinkles are less obvious. Your moods are stable, your brain function improves and your libido is right where it should be. You feel feminine, you feel content and you feel vital!
Common oestrogen disruptors:
- HRT & oral contraceptives
- Tap water
- Excess alcohol
- Weight gain – oestrogen doesn’t just come from your ovaries it’s made in your fat cells too.
However, the biggest problem comes from xeno oestrogens. These are chemical compounds that mimic oestrogen and they interrupt the action of your natural hormones creating hormone imbalance. You’re exposed to several 100 each day and they can be found in toothpaste, deodorant, sunscreen, cosmetics, food preservatives, food packaging and many kinds of plastics. One of the most common and most damaging is Bisphenol-A (BPA) which is used in the making of plastics.
High oestrogen affects 70% over women over 35. How do you know if you’re one of them?
Raised levels of oestrogen can stop or slow down weight loss for women because it slows down the release of fat from the cells to be used as energy, particularly from around the hips and bum area. So one of the key visual indicators is that you tend to hold weight around your hips and bum.
Other signs include:
- Swollen ankles
- Mood swings, irritability, weepiness
And btw xeno oestrogens aren’t just wreaking havoc in women’s lives they’re the reason for moobs on your men too.
