Phytoestrogen Lifetime Complex™ Concept
Maintaining good health and vitality throughout life requires eating right, exercising, managing stress, and avoiding exposure to toxins in addition to other healthy lifestyle choices. Choosing natural, complementary wellness products as part of an overall health-care strategy can also support wellness as we age. Women have particular health needs that may require specific and targeted dietary and lifestyle choices. If not addressed early in life, these specific health requirements can lead to uncomfortable and persistent issues associated with hormone cycles and aging.
Almost every function in a woman’s body is controlled by hormones. Estrogen and progesterone are particularly important hormones for women and will influence a woman’s good health and emotional well-being throughout her lifetime. High estrogen production in young women can result in significant issues related to menstruation, while the production of too little estrogen as a woman ages can impact many aspects of a woman’s reproductive health and can be a contributing factor to the health challenges that some women experience during and after menopause. Balancing healthy estrogen levels will help minimize monthly hormone swings and the hormone fluctuations associated with menopause.
Hormones are metabolized in the liver creating bioactive metabolites. Maintaining a healthy ratio of estrogen metabolites in the body is critical to a woman’s health. Current research shows that an imbalance of certain metabolites can negatively impact a woman’s health as she ages. Leading an active lifestyle and eating a diet rich in essential nutrients and foods containing natural phytoestrogens can help maintain healthy hormonal balance.
Phytoestrogens are compounds found in plants that have similar properties to estrogen produced in the body.* The size and shape of phytoestrogen molecules are similar to estrogen and can bind with estrogen beta receptors in cells. Beta receptors are predominately found in skin, bone, and cardiovascular tissues where increased estrogen activity has positive health benefits, while beta receptors are low in tissues of the breasts and uterine areas where over-exposure to estrogen may be of concern. In addition to producing gentle estrogenic effects in the body, phytoestrogens can help balance hormones and hormone metabolites by blocking estrogens from binding to cells.*
