Estrogen-Equalizing Mango Smoothie

Hormone (or endocrine) disruptors lurk all around us in the forms of foods, toxins, or environmental pollutants. Estrogen dominance describes how these toxins can either trigger an overproduction of estrogen or introduce added estrogen that may cause imbalances. Males and females are both susceptible to the troublesome biological and psychological effects of these harmful chemicals, which can cause an array of disorders, such as malignant tumors, congenital birth defects, neurological damage, and child developmental issues. Our Estrogen-Equalizing Mango Smoothie helps to counter the effects of hormonal imbalances. Chosen ingredients showcase nutrients that can help inhibit an overproduction of estrogen and neutralize or hinder harmful estrogen activity.

This estrogen smoothie specifically addresses age-related hormonal disorders, such as low testosterone in males and estrogen imbalances in menopausal females. Males who suffer low testosterone often have higher levels of estrogen. If you suspect that you are experiencing any hormonal issues, be sure to connect with your doctor to discuss the best treatment plan and diet to address your specific needs. Try to prevent hormonal problems, however, by sipping on the Estrogen-Equalizing Mango Smoothie while consuming a balanced diet void of known harmful hormone disruptors, like certain soy derivatives or pesticides.

Estrogen-Equalizing Mango Smoothie

  • Servings: 1
  • Ready In: 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 cup coconut yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds

Health Benefits

  • Coconut milk and coconut yogurt: are better choices than dairy products that may contain high levels of estrogen from cows that have been overly milked. Coconuts contain more reliable levels of phytoestrogens. It is believed that coconuts are beneficial for increasing testosterone levels in males. Be sure to get organic coconut milk for the best nutritional value.

  • Mangos and oranges: address an overabundance of estrogen that many people suffer due to environmental and dietary hormone disruptors.

  • Raspberries: have powerful organic compounds that help correct how the body metabolizes estrogen, especially if it is exposed to heightened estrogen levels.

  • Flax seeds: possess lignans, which are polyphenols that help neutralize operative estrogen in the body. Polyphenols increase low estrogen levels and can hinder an overabundance of estrogen.
