What Are Xenoestrogens?

Xenoestrogens are chemicals that mimic estrogen in your body. Xeno means foreign, so the term xenoestrogen simply means estrogen that comes from a foreign source. Xenoestrogens are also referred to as:
  • Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDC's)
  • Hormone Disrupting Chemicals
  • Hormone Disruptors
  • Xenobiotics
  • Fake Estrogens
  • Estrogen Mimicking Chemicals
  • and many other names....
Xenoestrogens mimic estrogen in your body, wreaking havoc on your hormonal balance and potentially creating a myriad of problems. Recent research indicates that xenoestrogens are affecting the world we live in from male alligators unable to reproduce to parabens being linked to breast cancer in women. Most personal care products are riddled with xenoestrogens such as phthalates, parabens, petroleum chemicals and come packaged in BPA or BPS plastic containers. Xenoestrogen chemicals can also suppress the hormones in your thyroid, causing fatigue, muscle and joint pain, along with endometriosis, fibrocystic breast disease, ovarian cysts, migraines, severe PMS, uterine cysts, increased breast and uterine cancer, reduced testosterone in males and even behavioral changes.
