Everyone, men and women alike need to pay attention to the amount of excess estrogens that may be in the foods you eat. You want to keep your estrogen load low so as not to cause hormonal imbalance.
Estrogen can also cause thyroid issues in men and women as well as reproductive issues. The first step to lowering your estrogen naturally is to pay attention to foods containing estrogen in excess.
Estrogen rich foods:
1. Factory farmed meat: meats these days are treated with estrogens to get the meat to swell, and to keep dairy cows lactating constantly. The estrogen will typically pass through to the consumer via the fat in the meat or dairy.
2. Flax seeds and estrogenic lignans: lignans are found to be so estrogenic that researchers use them specifically as among the foods to LOWER testosterone levels in subjects.
3. Soy: soy has been touted as a health food, and is now in most packaged foods so it’s quite surprising that it’s one of the estrogen foods to avoid. It contains compounds known as isoflavones
4. Beans: researchers found beans to be estrogenic and goitrogenic . Legumes like chickpeas (garbanzo beans) red beans, black-eyed peas, green peas and split peas are also estrogenic and black beans pack 5,330 micrograms of estrogen per 100 grams. Hummus (from chickpeas) has 993 micrograms of estrogen per 100 grams.
5. Factory dairy
