Our Monthly blog by Dr Daisy

November 2017.

Let's talk about Xenoestrogens


What are xenoestrogens?

By definition, xenoestrogens are chemicals, which are not produced in the human body, but have estrogen-like effects.

It is important to note that not all xenoestrogens are harmful.

Now let’s also not get confused - Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) does not contain xenoestrogens. The estrogen in most HRT products - is a natural estrogen, chemically identical to the estrogen produced by the premenopausal ovary.

So this article - surprisingly - is not really about HRT at all! - but it is all about hormones.
