While I have changed my diet and added near-daily exercise to my estrogen dominance treatment plan, certain supplements have really helped to tip the scales (pun intended!) in my favor.
While Dr. Lark suggests a range of great supplements to offset elevated estrogen levels, three in particular have been life savers for me:
- Maca: This Peruvian herb helps regulate and normalize female hormones. I take about 4 grams, but you may need to take as little as 2 grams or as much as 10 grams, depending on your particular hormone profile.
- Flaxseed: Flaxseed contains high levels of beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, which are necessary to support healthy ovulation. I use 46 tablespoons of ground flaxseed every day, either in my morning shake or in my coconut yogurt.
- B vitamins: Vitamin B complex supports your livers ability to metabolize estrogen levels. I take at least 50 mg of vitamin B complex every day.
