The Link Between Breast Cancer and Estrogen

Every women produces estrogen, unfortunately not all women process estrogen the same way.  Women can be prone to cancer if there is an imbalance in the body’s ability to break down estrogen, Research has shown that the body breaks down estrogen into two different forms. Similar to cholesterol, it breaks down into “good estrogen” which tends to protect against tumor formation. But it also can break down into “bad estrogen”, which can actually promote tumor development. After analyzing the records of over 10,000 women, research has shown that women who produce more “bad estrogen” are at greater risk for breast cancer.  Epidemiology 2005; 14(9): 2137-2142.


Cruciferous Vegetables and Reducing Cancer Risk

Since the late 1970’s, research has shown that women who eat cruciferous vegetables have an overall reduced risk of breast cancer. Vegetables such as kale and Brussels sprouts contain compounds that shift the breakdown of estrogen to the more protective “good estrogen,” thus protecting against cancer.  Epidemiology. 2000 Nov; 11(6):635-40.


How Can I Increase My Levels of “Good Estrogen?”

 A new more recent study has shown that a whole food supplement program containing 3.6 grams of dehydrated organic Brussels sprouts and kale was effective in tipping the delicate balance of estrogens in favor of the good form.

Organically grown, bio-available kale and Brussels sprouts are now available in a supplement. Talk to the doctors about how whole food supplementation can benefit your estrogen metabolism.
