Effectively modulates overall estrogenic activity to help provide significant relief from common symptoms of PMS (premenstrual syndrome) such as cramping, irritability and breast tenderness, as well as symptoms of pre-menopause and menopause such as hot flushes, occasional mood swings and sleep imbalances*
Estro Support(with DIM), Quantum Nutrition Labs (60Vcaps)
Healthy Hormone Balance for Women of All Ages* • Promotes healthy hormone balance, especially estrogen metabolism and detoxification, in women of all ages*
• Effectively modulates overall estrogenic activity to help provide significant relief from common symptoms of PMS (premenstrual syndrome) such as cramping, irritability and breast tenderness, as well as symptoms of perimenopause and menopause such as hot flushes, occasional mood swings and sleep imbalances*
• Helps eliminate undesirable estrogen mimics locked in hormone and neurological receptor sites*
• Promotes preferred pathways of estrogen metabolism, including the conversion of estradiol to 2-hydroxyestrone, a weaker estrogen that may help protect estrogen-sensitive tissues*
Healthy Hormone Support For Women of All Ages*
Targeted Nutritional Support for Healthy Hormone Balance. Quantum Estro Complex promotes healthy hormone balance in women of all ages by featuring a broad range of targeted nutrients and synergists that support healthy estrogen metabolism and detoxification.* For women with hormone-related health concerns, supporting optimal hormone balance may provide relief and may result in improvement in common symptoms of PMS (premenstrual syndrome), perimenopause, and menopause.
Comprehensive Formula Design
What makes this formula unique is that the synergism of its broad-range nutrients address multiple concerns related to hormone balance with special emphasis on estrogen activity and metabolism. Because it exerts multiple influences, Quantum Estro Complex is an excellent choice for a variety of women’s concerns. Its hormone-balancing support may provide relief for women with estrogen-excess concerns as well as providing effective nutritional support to encourage healthy estrogen balance in menopausal women.*
To enable its detoxification, estrogen goes through a process called hydroxylation that yields the so-called “good” 2-hydroxyestrone (2-OH) estrogen and the less desirable 16-hydroxyestrone (16-OH) and 4-hydroxyestrone (4-OH) estrogens. Because these estrogen metabolites vary greatly in their level of estrogenic activity, their ultimate effect on the body’s tissues (whether beneficial or stressful) depends on how they are processed in the body.
The 2-OH estrogen has weak estrogenic activity, while 4-OH and 16-OH estrogens show long-acting estrogenic activity and are often associated with estrogen-excess related health concerns. Both 2-OH and 4-OH estrogens (called catechol estrogens) can be readily oxidized to quinones, which are highly reactive and can damage DNA.
However, this oxidation process can be altered if the catechol estrogens are first detoxified via Phase II liver detoxification (methylation). Therefore, the goal is to achieve an adequate nutritional status so that the liver can easily render 4-OH less reactive, while supporting the beneficial properties of 2-OH. Thus, we can see that supporting the liver detoxification pathway is a critical factor in supporting overall healthy estrogen activity.
Research shows that DIM also helps balance estrogen metabolism. Over 40 studies on DIM are on file in the National Library of Medicine database. DIM has proven to be an efficient way to help increase the ratio of estrogen metabolites in favor of the “good” estrogen. In addition to its estrogen balancing effect, DIM helps stimulate progesterone production and competes with testosterone for protein binding.
This helps to maintain testosterone in its free form (the most de-sirable form). DIM helps reduce the conversion of testosterone to estrogen.
Due to the aging process (especially prevalent when coupled with obesity or regular alcohol use), estrogen metabolism is reduced. DIM promotes healthy estrogen metabolism and helps to improve symptoms of menopause or PMS. As little as 0.5mg/kg body weight/day of DIM has been demonstrated as an effective dose. That means, for a 150 lb person, only 30 mg/day would be needed. DIM is also very effective when used in conjunction with other ph
