What Are Xenoestrogens?
Our modern environment is FULL of chemicals that act as xenoestrogens. Xenoestrogens are chemicals and compounds from outside of the body, then when ingested or absorbed, act as weak estrogens in the body. Not to be confused with phytoestrogens from food that sometimes have health benefits, xenoestrogens are cancer causing and malicious chemicals found in everyday personal care products, cookware, plastics, flame retardants applied to mattresses and furniture, and, in general, almost everywhere else you can imagine! We ingest and absorb xenoestrogens every single time we smell chemical fumes, handle receipts from the grocery or department store, drink out of plastic bottles, eat out of plastic or styrofoam storage containers… even sleeping on your 10 year old or brand new memory foam mattress exposes you to vast quantities of these insidious chemicals.
Xenoestrogens Lead to Estrogen Dominance
Xenoestrogens lead to estrogen dominance and disease. When xenoestrogens enter the body, not only do they exert their toxic effects on your cells and tissue, as well as burden your liver, they also bind to estrogen receptors in the body, decreasing the amount of estrogen available to cells and tissues that actually need it. This causes your organs to produce even more estrogen in response to your body’s perceived ‘lack’ of estrogen. This excess estrogen can lead to weight gain, PMS and menopause symptoms, estrogen dominance, and even cancer.
How Do You Avoid Xenoestrogens?
What can you do about xenoestrogens? While avoiding all xenoestrogens is virtually impossible, changing your diet and lifestyle has a huge impact! Switching to natural personal care products, choosing organic fruits and vegetables as well as sourcing protein from animals raised without chemicals, hormones, and antibiotics can all help. Using cookware made with clean materials, choosing to have your purchase receipt emailed to you or not printed at all, avoiding all plastics, and investing in a latex mattress and flame retardant free furniture are also all excellent steps toward eliminating xenoestrogens from your daily life.
Fight Estrogen Dominance With EstroProtect
If you are dealing with estrogen dominance, look no further than EstroProtect. In women, estrogen dominance is characterized by having a distinct imbalance between estrogen and progesterone. This can cause a variety of uncomfortable symptoms, especially before and during your menstrual cycle. My EstroProtect formula helps your body strike a balance between estrogen and progesterone by supporting the elimination of excess estrogen and healthy estrogen metabolism.
Address Estrogen Dominance to Support Healthy Menstruation
If you’re having uncomfortable menstrual cycles every month, it’s time to do something about it! Painful and uncomfortable menstrual cycles can be caused by a variety of conditions. When they’re caused by estrogen dominance, thankfully, lifestyle modifications can help a great deal! Besides avoiding endocrine disrupting chemicals, eating more cruciferous vegetables, and exercising, EstroProtect can help your body detoxify and eliminate excess estrogen, support inflammation balance, and assist with estrogen metabolism in order to support healthy progesterone to estrogen ratio as well as support estrogen metabolite balance, i.e. your estrogen 2:16 ratio.
Support Estrogen Metabolism
My EstroProtect Formula contains DIM for healthy estrogen metabolism. Diindolymethane (DIM) has been clinically shown to directly support healthy estrogen metabolism. Estrogen can be metabolized three ways, and your balance of its metabolites, 2, 4 and 16 alpha hydroxyestrone (OHE), play a huge role in everything from cellular immunity to mood, and libido to menstrual comfort. DIM encourages estrogen in your body to be metabolized into the healthy, more favorable metabolite, 2-OHE.
Comprehensive Estrogen Balance
EstroProtect is the most comprehensive estrogen balancing formula on the market. When I custom formulated EstroProtect, I set out to choose the most beneficial ingredients available in order to best benefit estrogen metabolism, cellular immunity, testosterone levels, inflammation, aromatase balance, and estrogen detoxification and chelation. I’ve included clinically significant doses of Calcium-D-Glucarate, DIM, and much more in order to benefit hormone health and balance in the most effective way possible.
EstroProtect Supports Healthy Weight Loss
EstroProtect supports healthy weight loss! That’s right, often times weight gain can be hormonal in nature. Estrogen is a growth hormone, and if you have too much estrogen circulating through your body, especially the less desirable metabolites, it lends itself to weight gain in the hips, thighs, breasts and buttocks (in men too!). By supporting inflammation, and therefore intracellular/extracellular fluid balance, EstroProtect can help with water retention. It’s of course also extremely effective at supporting estrogen metabolism, so that you have more of the desirable metabolites, and assisting with the detoxification and chelation of excessive estrogen, my EstroProtect supports healthy fat loss!
EstroProtect is the perfect formula for you if you:
Suffer from occasional discomfort associated with menstruation
Want to support healthy estrogen metabolism
Want to support optimal thyroid function
Use beauty & body care products with parabens, phthalates, or “fragrance”
Eat or drink out of plastic bottles or containers
Want to support a healthy immune system

Yes, EstroProtect can be taken by teenage girls, however, I recommend speaking with their physician or endocrinologist to determine if Estroprotect is the right choice for her individual circumstances.

My EstroProtect formula was also formulated in order to help men overcome estrogen dominance and strike a healthy hormonal balance.

Is EstroProtect appropriate for pregnant or breastfeeding women?

Why Buy from Amy Myers MD?
Finally, supplements from a source you can actually trust. After receiving my medical degree (M.D.) at Louisiana State University, I completed my residency in Emergency Medicine at the University of Maryland Medical Center. In 2012, I became a certified functional medicine physician, so I could help my patients get to the root cause of their health problems.
Since then, I’ve gone on to write 2 New York Times bestselling books, as well as the Amazon #1 bestseller The Autoimmune Solution Cookbook. I’ve been a guest on the Dr. Oz Show 7 times, have starred in my own PBS special, and been featured in dozens of television, radio, and magazine interviews.
Many other supplement brands are run by fly-by-night operations looking to turn a quick buck. Not so with Amy Myers MD® — it’s one of the only health and wellness brands owned and operated by a real medical doctor (that’s me)!
You’ll know exactly what you’re getting because all products are 3rd party tested and verified. You may be surprised to know that the supplement industry is not regulated by the FDA and it’s up to the manufacturer to ensure they’re delivering high-quality products that contain what they say they do.
All of the supplements I carry in my store carry the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) seal, meaning they have been 3rd party tested for purity, quality, potency, and composition, so you can rest assured that you’re getting the key nutrients you’re paying for and that your body needs.
High-potency, pharmaceutical grade supplements to maximize value and impact.
Because I am a licensed physician, the supplements I carry are pharmaceutical grade, meaning they are higher quality and typically higher dosages than you can find in a health food store or online retailer.
This is vital because cost per unit is a key metric to look at when choosing supplements. If you look at a supplement such as my 100 Billion probiotic, you will find that you may need to take nearly an entire bottle of other probiotics to achieve the same potency.
My supplements contain no gluten, dairy, soy, GMOs, preservatives, dyes, or toxic ingredients. You’re not eating these inflammatory foods or toxins so why would you want them in your supplements?! I source all of the ingredients in my supplements from pure, clean sources.
There are a few incredibly rare exceptions where products contain trace amounts of dairy or egg because of the way they need to be formulated, however they are clearly marked on the product page and are in such low quantities that even my very sensitive patients typically have not had a reaction.
The highest quality ingredients in the form that is best absorbed and utilized by your body. The form and formulation of the vitamins and nutrients in your supplements make a difference! I have specifically sourced and formulated the ingredients in my products to be in their most bioavailable forms for maximum effectiveness.
Every product in my store has been personally vetted by me. Not only have I researched and tested every product I carry, I have also worked with thousands of patients to determine which formulations that produce the very best results.
Shopping is risk-free with my 90-day return guarantee. I stand behind all of the products I carry in my store. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, simply send the unused portion back to me, and we will refund your money.*
