Brussel Sprouts for Hormone Balance: Metabolizing Excess Estrogen

Heal your hormones through using simple foods as medicine

Brussel sprouts have been used as healing foods for centuries to support optimal health and hormone balance. They effectively metabolize excess estrogen keeping you healthy, strong, and balanced.

Many women who suffer from PCOS symptoms experience estrogen dominance. This can cause low thyroid function, depression, weight gain, heavy periods, fibroids, and other hormonally related symptoms.

Brussel sprouts are part of the cruciferous vegetable family including broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower.

The active ingredients found in Brussel sprouts, Indole-3-carbinol (13C) and 3,3-diindolylmethane (DIM) are found to effectively metabolize estrogen.

Digesting cruciferous veggies like brussels sprouts aid the body to break down estrogen into “good” estrogen or 2-hydroxyestradiol. These “good” estrogens are used to protect us from disease, keeping our skin, heart, and brain healthy and thriving.

Cruciferous Vegetables for Detox and Nutrients

Proper estrogen conversion has an amazing detoxing effect on your body.

The “good” estrogen supports the removal of toxins, also referred to as ‘endocrine disrupters’ or what throws your body out of balance.

These endocrine disruptors can have detrimental effects and can cause the accumulation of symptoms called PCOS.

Brussel sprouts are packed with fiber, vitamins k, a and e, as well as offering a decent amount of folate, which is essential for women trying to conceive.

Brussels sprouts have also been found to help reduce inflammation in the body due to their high levels of antioxidants. These antioxidants help offset free radicals in the body that can cause inflammation and reduce the risk of disease caused by inflammation.

These tasty little gems are some of our favorite veggies to add to any meal!

Not only are brussels sprouts nutritious and hormone-balancing, but they are also delicious!
