femMed Breast Health Q&A

Over 50% of women 35 years and older have some level of hormonal imbalance often caused by excess estrogen. Breast Health contains 7 ingredients that promote healthy breasts by promoting healthy estrogen metabolism and supporting a healthy estrogen metabolite ratio.

Can Breast Health Promote a Healthy Estrogen Balance?
femMED Breast Health has recently undergone a Health Canada approved clinical trial involving pre-menopausal and post-menopausal women. Researchers say they have uncovered a possible way for women to favorably influence whether estrogen in their body takes a “beneficial” or a “disease-potential” path.

Breast Health is specially formulated to help promote healthy estrogen metabolism and support a healthy estrogen metabolite ratio.

All 7 ingredients found in femMED Breast Health contribute to breast health by a variety of estrogen-dependent mechanisms. This combination approach ensures an overall healthy estrogen balance.

“I am a 64 year old woman who has been taking your breast formula for the past three years. I was diagnosed with fibro cystic breasts. There were mammograms every 6 months always a call back for an ultra sound and of course, the constant worry that maybe this one was not a cyst. I can’t tell you how many needle biopsies I have had. What I can tell you is that about four years ago my Dr. suggested I try your Breast Formula, the best move I have made; my worries are so much less. In the past three years there have been no lumps, bumps, cysts. No extra mammograms, no ultra sounds, just the normal yearly examinations. I believe that your Breast Formula has solved my breast problems, and would be happy to share that exciting news with anyone.” Kathleen S.

What is Indole-3-carbinol?
Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C) is a naturally occurring phyto-nutrient (plant based compound) found in vegetables like broccoli, kale, cabbage and cauliflower. I3C helps protect breast tissue by stimulating your body’s natural detoxifying enzymes. This aids the body in eliminating harmful estrogens and promoting a healthy estrogen balance.

I am 46 years old and suffer with pain and tenderness in my breasts. My doctor said that it is fibrocystic breast disease. Can Breast Health help?
Many women experience breast tenderness that is cyclic or continuous throughout the month. This is often caused by high levels of estrogen. Fibrocystic breast disease (FBD) is a condition also caused by high estrogen levels, resulting in pain, tenderness, lumps and a feeling of fullness in the breasts. Symptoms may range from mild to severe and typically peak before each menstrual period and improve immediately afterwards. FBD is estimated to affect over 60% of all women. It is particularly common in women between the ages of 30 and 50, and rare in women who have gone through menopause because estrogen levels decline in menopause. Breast Health contains ingredients that promote a healthy estrogen balance and help to reduce breast pain and tenderness.

Why Is Estrogen Metabolism Important?
We know that approximately 80% of breast cancers are estrogen dominant. And a woman's exposure to estrogens increase her risk. So ideally, we want to reduce the amount of harmful estrogens, and stop its action at the early stage. So going organic in foods, cleaning supplies and cosmetics can limit xeno-estrogens in your body, and they can act as estrogen modifiers at the receptor site.

If you have already had breast cancer, are BRCA2 positive and are taking Tamoxifen, could femMED Breast Health be taken as one of treatments for breast cancer to reduce risk of re-occurrence? Could femMED libido be taken?
Yes, you can consider taking Breast Health and Libido. Breast Health contains a unique blend of natural ingredients that help protect breast tissue by aiding detoxification, helping the body eliminate harmful estrogens and promoting a healthy estrogen balance. Specifically, it helps raise levels of 2-hydroxy estrogen, which is a form of estrogen that is breast-protective. In fact, several studies have shown that as levels of 2-hydroxyestrogen increase and levels of 16-hydroxyestrogen decrease, the risk for breast cancer decreases.

femMED women's Breast Health formula was just recently involved in a double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trial that was published in a peer reviewed journal called Breast Cancer: Basic and Clinical Research. This study was also presented at a prestigious scientific conference. Researchers evaluated the product in 47 pre-menopausal women and 49 post-menopausal women for 28 days. On day one and 28, they analyzed blood and urine samples for estrogen metabolites. They discovered that femMED's Breast Health supplement significantly increased the mean urinary concentration of 2-hydroxy estrogen in pre- and post-menopausal women (by 110% and 88%, respectively). The Breast Health supplement was well-tolerated, and displayed no adverse side effects.

Low libido can be caused by a number of factors, including hormonal imbalance, such as low estrogen and/or testosterone. femMED's Libido product contains ingredients help to increase sexual desire, blood flow to the pelvic area and alleviate dryness.
