X for Xenoestrogens


Xenoestrogens are man-made chemicals that disrupt the endocrine system and meddle with our ability to excrete estrogen, potentially leading to estrogen dominance as well as developmental, reproductive, neurological and immune effects. To my knowledge, xenoestrogens never have the potential for positive action. They are only a risk And why do we need to protect our endocrine system ?

The endocrine system is a sophisticated collection of glands that secrete hormones to ensure our cells receive the right information to regulate a wide variety of functions. When the endocrine system is humming along nicely, we’re more likely to experience good health. The endocrine system is susceptible to many external forces that can send it out of balance and one of the strongest influencers is a class of chemicals called xenoestrogens. It’s important to know what xenoestrogens are, where they’re found and also, what we can do avoid them and reduce their effect on us.

It doesn’t take much to throw the entire endocrine system out of balance, and exposure to xenoestrogens, often measured in parts per billion, can literally be the straw that breaks the camel’s back, and be the tipping point for a cascade of hormonal imbalance

Some of the health risks of xenoestrogens include:

Cancer, infertility, obesity , diabetes , thyroid dysfunction and much more.
