“Don’t say, only married 2 years, my wife of that second marriage already become yellow face old woman.”Mr. Zhang is complaining to his brother. He has been complaining to his wife recently.The original is not ugly wife, how not long after marriage so, and then she does not love to dress up themselves.Mr. Zhang’s brother felt the same way, as did his wife.Later, I went to see a doctor, who said that estrogen was lacking in the body. The doctor gave me medicine and took it for a period of time, and the situation was greatly relieved.Brother’s words let Mr. Zhang very enchanted, excitedly go home and plan to take his wife to the hospital to see.But he had some doubts. Was estrogen really such a miracle?A big question mark in my mind.First, estrogen, women’s natural “beauty medicine”?Estrogen is an essential sex hormone in the female body. It has a wide range of functions, including stimulating the development of female secondary sex characteristics, promoting the growth of uterus and endometrium, promoting bone growth and regulating metabolism.The estrogen produced by a woman’s body is called endogenous estrogen and is divided into estradiol, estrone and estriol.Among them, estradiol has the strongest effect, which is the main estrogen in the body. The effect of estradiol is about one third of that of estradiol, and the effect of estriol is the weakest among the three, which mainly has a certain protective effect on the uterus and vagina.In other words, a woman needs estrogen protection throughout her life, and a lack of estrogen can cause a series of abnormal symptoms.Two, women with high estrogen, they tend to have these four characteristics and if you have these four characteristics, you have high estrogen production, which is a good sign.1, menstrual stability of women’s ovarian health, the secretion of estrogen in the body will increase, in this state each month’s menstrual period will remain stable.Part of the female menstrual cycle is irregular, often ahead of schedule, delayed, mostly estrogen secretion is abnormal.2, the skin condition of good skin condition can also reflect whether the female estrogen secretion is normal, estrogen secretion is sufficient, the metabolic rate of women will be accelerated, the skin will look more transparent ruddy, the aging rate will also be delayed.3. When the hormone secretion in women with high sleep quality is unstable, sleep will also be affected.Pre-menopausal, pre-menstrual women will have obvious symptoms, in the sleep is easy to have hot flashes, night sweats, sleep will become very difficult.4, good bone bone health can also reflect to a certain extent whether female estrogen secretion is normal, estrogen can promote calcium absorption, so that calcium deposition on the bone, the formation of good bone cell activity, has a good positive significance for bone health.However, this does not mean that it is a good thing for women to keep estrogen high. If estrogen is still high after the age of 45, we need to be aware of disease.For women, after the age of 45, estrogen secretion is too high, which can lead to abnormal symptoms such as obesity, high cholesterol and hair loss, and even cause polycystic ovary, uterine fibroids, abnormal ovulation, breast cancer, ovarian cancer and uterine cancer.This is because the female estrogen secretion is too high, will lead to the hormone secretion balance in the body is broken, women’s health will also be greatly affected.Abnormal fat secretion and abnormal cholesterol rise are very common, and excessive estrogen secretion can also cause abnormal hyperplasia of female endometrium and mammary gland, which poses a great threat to women’s health.Four, honey can complement estrogen?Honey can not supplement estrogen, because the main ingredient in honey is sugar, accounting for more than 80% of the total amount.The other ingredients are basically water, amino acids and vitamins, and contain less than 1%. It is obviously unrealistic to drink honey to supplement estrogen.· Phytoestrogens There are three common types of phytoestrogens: isoflavones, lignans, and mardanins, which are found in plants and seeds.Phytoestrogens have a similar molecular structure to human hormones and can be quickly absorbed and used by the body after entering the body.Soybean, wheat, onion, sunflower seeds, celery, rice and other foods contain rich phytoestrogen.· Animal estrogen As the name implies, animal estrogen refers to estrogen extracted from animals.The hormone is one of the indispensable hormones for women to maintain their secondary sexual characteristics, and can play a positive role in female endocrine system, cardiovascular function and metabolism.Chicken, duck, fish and animal viscera food are rich in animal estrogen.· Synthetic estrogens There are also many estrogen supplements on the market, which are synthetic estrogens.Before taking the medicine, we must follow the doctor’s advice. It is not recommended to blindly supplement estrogen. A large amount of estrogen supplement may bring some unnecessary trouble to health, which outweighs the loss.Estrogen is essential to a woman’s health, but it doesn’t mean higher levels are better.When the body is abnormal, it is necessary to seek medical treatment in time and take medicine under the guidance of professional doctors.Reference materials: [1] “Appropriate amount of estrogen to retain youth every Day”.
