Benefits of Breast Health Formula
- Helps maintain healthy estrogen levels
- Supports women’s hormone levels through age related changes
- Promotes breast health and women’s reproductive health
- Helps detoxify the body from environmental damage
Life Extension Breast Health Formula helps protect the breast’s DNA gene structure from aging and environmental damage. This formula contains phytoestrogens, plant lignans, cruciferous vegetable extracts, calcium, and vitamin D to support a healthy estrogen balance.
Women today face a growing number of health issues, including the need to support DNA gene structure in the breast. Detrimental factors such as the aging process, along with the daily bombardment of damaging environmental estrogen-like compounds, demonstrate the need to support a woman’s breast cellular structure.
A wealth of research shows that specific plant extracts can positively influence cellular status and help maintain a healthy balance of estrogens.
Estrogen is broken down in the body into two important metabolites. Those metabolites are the good 2-hydroxyestrone and the bad 16 alpha-hydroxyestrone. Scientists have identified nutrients like indole-3-carbinol (I3C) that can tip the delicate balance of estrogens in favor of the good form.1,2
Women seeking to proactively restore their youthful hormonal balance can take this phytonutrient-based formula that helps support healthy estrogen activity and detoxification. Some of the active ingredients in the Breast Health Formula are:
- Phytoestrogens – function as selective estrogen receptor modifiers that help block certain estrogen receptor sites on cells, thus preventing bad estrogen from exerting its harmful effects3
- Plant lignans – boost beneficial enterolactone levels that favorably alter estrogen metabolism4,5
- Cruciferous vegetable extracts and I3C – effectively increase 2-hydroxyestrone while reducing undesirable 16 alpha-hydroxyestrone6,7
- Calcium D-glucarate – safely facilitates the removal of harmful estrogen from the body through inhibiting beta-glucuronidase, an enzyme that rips the glucuronide conjugate off the estrogen8,9
- Vitamin D – restores healthy genetic regulatory switching to aging cells10
Breast Health Formula provides nutrients that have demonstrated broad-spectrum support for preserving optimal breast health.
