Life Extension has created a wonderful supplement for breast health that supports DNA gene structure in the breast itself. Aging along with the daily bombardment of environmental estrogen-like compounds, demonstrate the need to support a woman’s breast cellular structure.
Studies show that specific plant extracts can positively influence cellular status thus removing some anxiety women face about maintaining a healthy balance of estrogens.
Estrogen is broken down in the body into two important metabolites; 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.1-3
Women seeking to proactively restore their youthful hormonal balance can now take Breast Health Formula, a phytonutrient-based formula, to help 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 blocking bad estrogen from exerting its harmful effects4,5
- Plant lignans — boost beneficial enterolactone levels that favorably alter estrogen metabolism6-8
- Cruciferous vegetable extracts and I3C — effectively increase 2-hydroxyestrone while reducing undesirable 16 alpha-hydroxyestrone9-11
- Calcium d-Glucarate — safely facilitates the removal of harmful estrogen from the body through inhibiting beta-glucuronidase, a bad enzyme that rips the glucuronide conjugate off the estrogen12-14
- Vitamin D — promotes healthy genetic regulatory switching to aging cells15
Breast Health Formula provides nutrients that have demonstrated broad-spectrum support for preserving optimal breast health.*
