    fyi Food With Estrogen & Estrogen Blockers

    Estrogens in Food


    Now, here is a chart from a Website showing foods high in estrogens and those that block estrogen. Keep in mind the difference between [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lignans"]lignans[/ame] and [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isoflavones"]isoflavones[/ame]. The use of high estrogen foods-especially those rich in glutamate- should be reconsidered in formulating the ultimate diet for the epileptic or those suffering from excitotoxin-related disorders as we know that estrogens are inflammatory and sensitize neurons to the action of glutamate (e.g. catamenial seizures, PMS).

    I posted this chart mainly to help people see that the main "trouble foods"- gluten grains (wheat, barley, rye), dairy, and soy- are all in the estrogen-rich list. As you read more about what researchers are finding concerning the difference between lignans and isoflavones, you will see the war that is going on in our bodies between good and bad estrogens, paralleling the one raging between good and bad lectins.


    Here's the site:

    Estrogen Inhibiting Foods

    If you are suffering from breast cancer, PMS, fibroids, ovarian cysts, and other situations that estrogen might exacerbate, the following estrogen inhibiting foods might be of interest to you.

    Berries
    Broccoli
    Buckwheat
    Cabbage
    Citrus Foods
    Corn
    Figs
    Fruits (except apples, cherries, dates, pomegranates)
    Grapes
    Green beans
    Melons
    Millet
    Onions
    Pears
    Pineapples
    Squashes
    Tapioca
    White rice
    White flour Now, this is really cool! Why would wheat be on the list of estrogen-rich foods while white flour is on the list of estrogen-blocking foods? Doesn't make sense right? Actually, it DOES and illustrates a VERY important point. What do you get when you add water to white flour? Glue/ paste, right? What have I been saying about gluten again...it is "glue" and it does coat and stick to the villi of the duodenum. In this case, it coats the villi and blocks the absorption of the ESTROGENS in the food. Now, how cool is that?

    Re: Food With Estrogen & Estrogen Blockers

    Foods which mimic estrogen effects and/or attach to hormone receptor sites are a subject I've been interested in for the past several years. Thanks for the link.
