What is Indole-3-carbinol?
Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C) is a naturally occurring phyto-nutrient (plant based compound) found in vegetables like broccoli, kale, cabbage and cauliflower. I3C helps protect breast tissue by stimulating your body’s natural detoxifying enzymes. This aids the body in eliminating harmful estrogens and promoting a healthy estrogen balance.
I am 46 years old and suffer with pain and tenderness in my breasts. My doctor said that it is fibrocystic breast disease. Can Breast Health help?
Many women experience breast tenderness that is cyclic or continuous throughout the month. This is often caused by high levels of estrogen. Fibrocystic breast disease (FBD) is a condition also caused by high estrogen levels, resulting in pain, tenderness, lumps and a feeling of fullness in the breasts. Symptoms may range from mild to severe and typically peak before each menstrual period and improve immediately afterwards. FBD is estimated to affect over 60% of all women. It is particularly common in women between the ages of 30 and 50, and rare in women who have gone through menopause because estrogen levels decline in menopause. Breast Health contains ingredients that promote a healthy estrogen balance and help to reduce breast pain and tenderness.
Why Is Estrogen Metabolism Important?
We know that approximately 80% of breast cancers are estrogen dominant. And a woman’s exposure to estrogens increase her risk. So ideally, we want to reduce the amount of harmful estrogens, and stop its action at the early stage. So going organic in foods, cleaning supplies and cosmetics can limit xeno-estrogens in your body, and they can act as estrogen modifiers at the receptor site.
