What is estrogen?
It helps with the reproductive systems for females
It also plays a major role in health and female development.

Too low estrogen for men and along with the above problems they could have bone density issues.
What does it do?
It creates balance for low or high estrogen.
If you are low it’ll help produce more good estrogen.
If you are high it’ll metabolize and utilize the estrogen properly.
Once estrogen is available to be metabolized your body will break it down and remember, estrogen is primarily stored in body fat.
So your body will break down the fat in order to release the estrogen.
Why is it important to have balanced estrogen?
Estrogen increases blood flow and metabolic rate regulates body temperature, helps maintain muscles, improves skin health, helps maintain memory, increases sexual interest and reduces the risk of depression and anxiety.
