More specifically, you want help with Does Cruciferous Vegetables Increase or Decrease Estrogen??
so I recently had a question from someone that wanted to know will consuming cruciferous increase or decrease estrogen in my body okay they were concerned about consuming too much because they didn’t want to increase the risk of getting cancer because they heard that cruciferous was a phytoestrogen okay a plant based estrogen there are different types of estrogen in the body there are types that increase your risk for cancer and there are types of estrogen that do not okay so if your ratio is very very low in the type of estrogen that is protective against cancer and very high in the type of estrogen that increases your risk for cancer then you want to consume cruciferous because there are certain compounds in cruciferous vegetables that shift the ratio from the bad to the good so they lower the bad and they increase the good estrogen that’s what it does so you don’t have to worry about it causing cancer it’ll actually help protect against cancer now a lot of the research has been done in animals because it’s very difficult to do this type of research on humans simply because there’s so many variables but we do know that cruciferous has unique compounds like indole-3-carbinol for example that then turn into additional products called dim I’m not going to give you the long term for it but dim has the capacity to create apoptosis which basically is the killing of cancer cells DNA protection it decreases the vascular supply to tumors it will help you detoxify chemicals in the liver it can act as an antioxidant to protect the DNA it also can decrease the spread of cancer cells and it can even decrease tumor growth and dim can even be consumed in a concentrated form as a supplement one pill of dim is equivalent to 2 pounds of broccoli and there’s a tremendous amount of research right now going on using dim in many different types of cancer another concern that people have is consuming cruciferous if they have a slow thyroid or will the crucifer slow their thyroid the benefits of cruciferous are huge okay so you want to consume cruciferous if you’re concerned about cruciferous depleting your iodine just take some sea kelp okay one sea kelp tablet in the morning will give you plenty but the benefit of having a little bit of cruciferous each day is huge that would be broccoli cauliflower kale cabbage mustard radish bok choy brussel sprouts so in summary cruciferous has certain unique compounds that shift the type of estrogen that you have to be more protective against the risk of cancer thanks for watching hey before you go would you mind putting a comment down below to tell me what you think about this video
