When your body starts entering menopause, your estrogen levels begin to become unbalanced. This can lead to many unpleasant symptoms–many of which I have discussed here, including hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness.
I liked Kimberly’s list of decadently healthy foods so much that I decided to create my own list of my top 10 recommendations to balance estrogen levels. In each of my next several posts, I will give you a new recommendation. Today, let’s start with:
#1: Wheat Germ
Wheat germ oil is rich in vitamin E, which has mildly estrogenic properties. It has been shown to increase estrogen production, which can alleviate debilitating menopause symptoms. I suggest taking 2,0004,000 mg a day of wheat germ oil in divided doses. A good brand to try is Standard Process.
