 Consume Foods Higher in Phytoestrogens
Phytoestrogens are natural substances found in plants. They have a chemical structure similar to our body’s estrogen that helps keep female hormones under control. One of the major issues women face during and after menopause is hormone imbalance.
Some common sources of phytoestrogens are soybeans and other soy products, tempeh, tofu, flaxseeds, beans, and sesame seeds. However, the content of phytoestrogens varies depending on how processed the item you’re consuming is. That’s why it’s best to check and include the adequate amount of each food item accordingly.
