SALE $2.79 (Reg. $3.59)When I was in medical school I wasdrawn to learning about the effects of botanical medicine on human health.One of the most interesting topicswas phytoestrogens, or plant-basedchemicals that have an estrogen-likeeffect when consumed. The beauty of these compounds is that they have amodulating effect, thus providing a truesolution to many problems caused either by too much estrogen or even too little.Phytoestrogens are found in everydayfoods as well as not-so-common medicinalherbs. The most common foods includewhole grains, ax seeds and soy products,the latter two gaining the most attention.Herbs with high phytoestrogen contentinclude but are not limited to red clover,alfalfa, licorice root, verbena, and thyme.Observational studies suggest thatwhen these foods or herbs are consistentlyconsumed over longer periods of time,they may provide a protective effectagainst certain disease such as certaincancers and cardiovascular disease.Determining phytoestrogens’ effects onthese conditions has been difcult at best, but they do appear to have some veryuseful applications in other areas of ourhealth.
I encourage many patients to consumeaxseeds, usually ground in a dailysmoothie, as a good source of dietaryber and omega-3 fatty acids. But thelignan component of axseeds mayhave a benecial effect for women aftermenopause.In a preliminary trial, supplementationwith crushed axseeds for six weeksimproved the average hot ash score by 57percent in post-menopausal women whowere not receiving estrogen therapy. Thetreatment consisted of 2 tablespoons of axseeds twice daily.While the response and side effects,mostly digestive complaints, are variable,I don’t hesitate to make this suggestion because of the number of benets it alsooffers.
We often hear about the benets thatsoy may have regarding bone densityor reducing symptoms of premenstrualsyndrome, but one real impact soyappears to have is in lowering cholesterol.A controlled trial showed that soypreparations containing high amountsof isoavones effectively loweredtotal cholesteroland LDL (“bad”)cholesterol, whereaslow-isoavonepreparations did not.This effect seemsto take place when at least 20 grams of soyprotein is consumed each day in place of animal protein.
Like axseeds, red clover appears tohave multiple health benets, especially forpost-menopausal women.In a double-blind study administrationof 80 mg per day of red clover isoavonesreduced the frequency of hot ashes over12 weeks. It also appears to be benecial foanxiety and depression in this same groupwhen taken for three months.So consider these foods and plants as apart of a greater healthcare treatment plan.If estrogen is the problem, phytoestrogens just may be the solution.
