Surprise, surprise I’m having my fav mini burgers with sweet potato buns for dinner again!
.
This time, with a side of roasted brussel sprouts, carrots, and onions 🙌🏼
.
In the latest episode of my podcast with a PhD chemist, he mentioned how our environment and water supply is laced with estrogen mimicking compounds which can spell trouble when trying to get pregnant.
.
Luckily, cruciferous veggies like brussel sprouts support healthy estrogen metabolism 🙌🏼
.
When crucifers are added to one’s daily diet, their active ingredients, indole-3-carbinol (I3C) and 3,3'-diindolylmethane (DIM) affect estrogen metabolism and lead to favorable shifts in hormone markers which in turn may reduce the incidence of several types of cancer.
.
Since the crucifers allow the estrogen to be metabolized into “good” estrogen aka 2-hydroxy estrogen, many symptoms of estrogen overload can be avoided.
.
The “bad” estrogen metabolites are responsible for estrogen’s many undesirable actions, such as heavy periods, weight gain, mood swings, depression, low thyroid symptoms, and greater risks for fibroids, endometriosis, breast, and uterine cancers.
.
Be sure to tune in to the latest episode of my podcast for even more info on the topic but it’s safe to say that if you’re wanting to become pregnant or even just experiencing hormonal issues, adding cruciferous veggies is a great place to start 🙌🏼🙏🏼
