What is estrogen and why is it important?
What is Estrogen hormone?
Estrogen is a naturally occurring sex hormone present in our bodies, it plays an important role in maintaining the reproductive health of a woman. Estrogen levels are usually higher in women as compared to men, as they go through a lot of hormonal changes in their lifetime.
However, men also need some amount of estrogen hormones for staying healthy. Studies suggest that estrogen supports bone health, heart health, mood regulation, and lowers the risk of cancer in both men and women.
Women produce and need more amounts of estrogen hormone throughout their lifetime for maintaining their health. These estrogen hormone levels fluctuate constantly depending on the internal changes a woman is going through. It is high when she goes through sexual changes like the puberty, pregnancy, lactation; low during the menstrual cycle; and gradually drops during perimenopause (the period before menopause).
All time low estrogen hormone levels are an indicator of fertility problems and nutritional deficiency that need special attention and care.
Menopause is the period in a woman’s life when her menstrual cycle comes to a halt and she slowly stops ovulating, eventually losing the ability to reproduce. Read more about menopause here: Menopause
