Our fat cells have estrogen receptors... no joke!! Estrogen, which we often see as being a negative, but it will atually protect against chronic adipose inflammation. Estrogen gets a bad rap. Chronic adipose tissue inflammation is considered an increased risk factor for insulin resistance. The problem with estrogen is when we get into an inflammatory obesity problem as the estrogen dominance then overtakes and we lose the regulation of this essential hormone. 

It's the goldilocks syndrome of not too much and not too little. Too little estrogen sends the stressed out body into high cortisol responses (aka Triggered & Wired!!) This leads to chronic stress levels. These phytoestrogens and biological estrogen can counteract the effects of cortisol on the body.

Resveratrol, curcumins, also bind to these ERα receptors, which can block these essential hormones when taken in high amounts. 

This may be why a little turmeric tea in the morning when you have a well populated gut microbiota will boost your serotonin and reduce cortisol. A little tofu at lunch, due to the higher levels of the amino acid, l-tyramine, gives you a boost of energy while continuing to lower inflammation. 

Have a little cacao after dinner, which is even better than a glass of wine 🍷with a high level of polyphenols which feed the beautiful microbiota fundamentals that we are working so hard to renew in our toxic world. Cacao also contains tryptophan, which is a precursor to serotonin, it relaxes you for a great nights sleep. Cacao is also a phytoestrogen. 

Three different ways to connect to the estrogen receptors throughout your body, and naturally hack your mood and support you on your holistic journey.
