I have had breast cancer. In fact, I have genetics that show I am super wired for breast cancer. Not only that but when I first tested my estrogen metabolism the lab had never seen someone who makes the kind of estrogen that causes cancer so efficiently. Because of this I am pretty tuned in to protecting my breasts. I have developed a wonderful protocol that matches my genetics and patterns of estrogen metabolism and am sharing it here with you.
To explain how powerful my Breast Cancer Prevention Kit, I have to discuss each product in the kit:
Pure and Paleo Protein Powder you with a rockin’ vegan paleo protein shake that harnesses the power of fiber (8 grams) to help with hormone and blood sugar balance, amino acids to help with your emotional and mental balance and muscle building, your daily intake of vitamins, and a power packed 17 grams of protein. The ingredients in this formula make it ideal for anyone needing support with weight control, gut health, detoxification, auto-immune issues, heavy metals, and adrenal/thyroid/blood sugar hormone imbalance.
The bad news that no one tells you about protein powders is they are NOT completely absorbed. Studies have shown that only about 30% of what you are drinking actually gets absorbed as protein. If you use my Proteinzyme you get ALL of it. However, the Proteinzyme will not work with rice based protein powders so make sure you are only using it with my Pure and Paleo Protein Powder.
Calcium-D-Glucarate is calcium bound to d-glucaric acid, which is a natural compound produced in small amounts by the human body and is abundantly found in various plant foods such as broccoli, cabbage, kale, apples, oranges, and grapefruit. Research shows that d-glucaric acid derivatives such as calcium-d-glucarate help support the body’s natural elimination of excess hormones and toxins. Calcium-d-glucarate assists in the detoxification process of unwanted estrogenic hormones and environmental toxins, which are then eliminated from the body instead of being reabsorbed. This provides extra Calcium D-Glucarate above what is found in the Fem Protect for those with particularly high amounts of harmful estrogens.
This is extra protection over and above the SBG found in Fem Protect. There are over 500 journal publications, as well as documented epidemiological evidence, showing that diets rich in broccoli promote a wide range of health benefits. SBG Protect contains a specially cultivated form of broccoli seed known as BroccoRaphanin™, which is standardized to contain 10% Sulforaphane glucosinolate, the direct precursor to sulforaphane. Functional Nutrients chose this superior standardized extract because it supplies a large amount of beneficial components from high quality broccoli.
Fem Protect supports classic herbal hormonal balancing in the form of vitex, polygonum and black cohosh, along with DIM and chrysin for protection and support of beneficial estrogen aromatase activity. Calcium-D-glucarate promotes the proper elimination of excess estrogens. Rosemary, resveratrol, grape seed extract, and EGCg from green tea are included for maximum antioxidant protection. Vitamins B6, B12, and folates (NatureFolate™ blend) promote proper cell differentiation. Magnesium and calcium are also included to help support bone and hormone health.
DIM Avail provides 100 mg per soft gel of diindolylmethane (DIM), a compound that helps to support healthy estrogen metabolism. Due to its crystalline structure, absorption of DIM is minimal when given orally. For this reason, DIM Avail has been manufactured utilizing an all-natural process and formulation that improves the absorption of DIM. This process utilizes a proprietary blend of MCT oils, non-soy derived lecithin, and vitamin E without the use of potentially harmful surfactants. This provides extra DIM above what is provided in Fem Protect.
No two women are the same. You have your own unique genetics. I am not talking about the BRAC genes. Those only account for 10% of breast cancer. I am actually negative for those. If you want to deeply explore your genetic risk for breast cancer let’s connect and I will show you how to get tested and then we can individualize a plan for you.
In the meantime, try my Breast Cancer Prevention Kit. It’s super-charged protection because it was designed for me, the person with the worst estrogen metabolic patterns the lab had ever seen.
