Estrogen dominance is one of the most common hormonal issues affecting men and women and adversely impacting health at the moment. It’s growing more common by the day. ATP Science have developed Alpha Venus to help combat the lack of regulation and excessive production and build up of estrogen.
Every day we are exposed to various estrogens from an array of sources such as dairy, plastics and additives to our food products. This contributes to the overall problem but doesn’t necessarily explain the other associated impact on health and quality of life such as:
- Increased worry, intuition and gut instincts
- Exaggerated stress response and harder to switch off so can dwell on things
- Good long term memory with poor short term memory
- Running on ‘autopilot’ most of the time
- Can crave sugar and chocolate
- Mood swings are aggravated and follow pattern with menstrual cycle or moon
- Can trigger headaches and migraines
- Poor circulation, sometimes bruising and varicose veins
- Bloated and “fluidy” abdomen, hips and thighs.
- Fluid retention
- Breast lumps and bumps
- Ban increased risk of blood clots, DVTs, bruising and cramps
- Poor blood sugar control – high or low blood sugar, leading to sweet cravings
- Cellulite and obesity
- Emotional, nervous and sleep disturbances
- Conditions such as endometriosis or endomyositis
- Excessive period pain
- PMT with excessive emotional and mood fluctuations
- Heavy periods
- UTIs and Thrush
Excessive estrogen and the associated inability to detoxify the body of it contributes to a variety of lifestyle health conditions. Alpha Venus contains the latest scientifically formulated and most potent form of natural medicines to help you achieve balance and adequately regulate excessive estrogen levels. If you have any doubt about taking such a product, please check with your health care professional to determine if you have Estrogen dominance.
Estrogen dominance can be seen in both men and women but effects both sexes differently. Excessive estrogen in men and women can be visualised by fat accumulation in the areas highlighted below:
There are numerous causes of Estrogen dominance, some of these causes are:
- Inefficient Estrogen detoxification and elimination
- Excessive endogenous (from internal sources) Estrogen production due to excessive fat mass
- Increased aromatase activity converting testosterone to Estrogen
- Other hormonal imbalances such as hypothyroidism and hypercortisolaemia
- Excessive exogenous (from external sources) Estrogen exposure and accumulation from things such as:
– Cosmetics and sunscreens
– Genetics such as a family history of Estrogen dominance or inherited genetic MTHFR gene polymorphisms
– HRT and certain oral contraceptive pills
– “XenEstrogens” and EDC’s (endocrine disrupting chemicals)
– Iodine deficiency and / or hypothyroidism
It’s essential for health and wellness to allow the body to make and use endogenous (from internal sources) Estrogen for healthy bodily functions and general maintenance. However, after Estrogen has done its job, it must be cleared from the body so as to not accumulate. Accumulation of xenEstrogens (Estrogen and EDC’s (Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals from outside our body i.e. pollutants, plastics etc.) and exogenous Estrogens (Estrogen supplemented from outside our body like HRT and bio-identical hormones like The Pill) must also be effectively eliminated to prevent accumulation.
If these cannot be efficiently eliminated from the body the symptoms listed above can slowly develop and worsen over time. Alpha Mars helps to restore the balance and allow the body to efficiently detoxify excess estrogen.
Take one or two capsules, twice daily with meals.
