10 Healthy Foods That Boost Estrogen


5. Soy products

Tofu, soy milk, tempeh, and soybeans all have something in common: an amazing amount of phytoestrogen. Any soy product is going to be the main source of phytoestrogen in your diet unless you have a soy allergy, that is.

Swap out cow’s milk for soy milk, go meatless on Monday and try tofu or tempeh burgers, nosh on edamame, and whip soy yogurt into your bowl of bran flakes.

Soybeans are also high in vitamins and minerals, so if you are feeling a bit anemic or suffering from low magnesium, these little gems are the perfect supplement.

6. Garlic

This delectable herb is a prize in dishes all around the world. Plus, it wards off vampires and low estrogen levels.

Shake some garlic powder into your mashed potatoes, use minced garlic in pasta sauce, in gravies, on sandwiches, or even in your hummus.

7. Dried apricots, dates, and prunes

These dried fruits will help your estrogen levels out phenomenally.

In fact, because they are so dense, you get more phytonutrients from pieces of dried fruit than you would fresh fruit. Just remember that while these are delicious snacks, they also have more sugar. Snack smartly!

8. Green peas

Though often considered as the “side dish,” peas deserve some limelight.

They have a wonderful amount of phytonutrients, fiber, vitamin C, magnesium, iron, and even potassium. Plus, pea protein is highly digestible, which is great for sensitive stomachs.

Let peas take a lead role on your plate by adding them to the casserole, mashing them into your whipped cauliflower, or even adding them to the soup. Pop them in the freezer if you are looking for a sweet snack in the summer.

9. Beans

Often used as a meat replacement, beans are also adequate estrogen replacement.

Black beans, kidney beans, lima beans, and more are all high in fiber and help lower cholesterol. Since beans are staples in many ethnic dishes, you should have no trouble adding them to your diet if you have not already.
