Estrogen Metabolism: Start to Finish

The breakdown and excretion of estrogens is an extremely complicated process and a wide range of factors can influence it. Metabolism of estrogen occurs in several areas of the body, most frequently in the liver and gastrointestinal tissues. Beneficial modulation of estrogen metabolism can often be accomplished through dietary and lifestyle modifications such as increasing fiber and reducing fat, supplementing with phytoestrogen, losing weight, and exercising more. Unhealthy estrogen metabolism is often to blame for estrogen-related diseases and conditions.
