Fruits and Nuts Boosts Estrogen

Posted Oct 22 2008 4:37pm
Eating foods rich in the mineral boron can boost estrogen levels in postmenopausal women to a stunning degree - as much as taking estrogen replacement therapy does, according to studies by U.S. Department of Agriculture researcher Dr. Forrest Nielsen. Boron seems to work, he says, by boosting steroid hormones in the blood. He documented that in women getting adequate amounts of boron, the most active form of estrogen - estradiol 17B - doubled, reaching levels found in women on estrogen replacement.

The diet of the average American contains about half the boron found effective in the studies.

High levels of boron are found in fruit, especially apples, pears, grapes, dates, raisins and peaches; in legumes, especially soybeans; in nuts, including almonds, peanuts and hazelnuts; and in honey.

You could get the dosed used in the study by eating a couple of apples a day and three and a half ounces of peanuts.
