Most men look to lower estrogen, as the side effects of high estrogen are highly undesirable, especially for lifters. Some of these side effects include bloating, decreased sex drive, erectile dysfunction, and gynocomestia. With that said, too little estrogen can be detrimental as well. Estro-X takes a different approach. Instead of simply trying to decrease your estrogen, it actually aids in overall hormone balance. MFIT is a bit of a newer company, however they have been making noise. Not only do they have excellent manufacturing standards, their products are simply effective! Let’s take a look at Estro-X and see what you’re actually getting.
MFIT SUPPS Estro-X Formula To understand the quality behind Estro-X, it is important we discuss the supplement facts with you.
MicroActive® Resveratrol SR 30% – 500mg yielding 150mg The first ingredient in Estro-X is MicroActive® Resveratrol. Resveratrol is an ingredient that is thought to give red wine its health benefits. According to a study, Resveratrol may increase cerebral blood flow. It has also been shown to be an aromatase inhibitor, and it is great to see it in Estro-X. Estro-X gives you 150mg of MicroActive®, which is a sustained release Resveratrol, and has a bioavailability that is 2.5 times higher than higher than regular Resveratrol.
Catethin™ Green Tea Leaf Extract – 400mg Cathethin™ is a trademarked form of Green Tea Extract. Now Green Tea on its own has a multitude of benefits. The extract MFit uses has been standardized for 98% polyphenols. Polyphenols are the compounds in Green Tea that are believed to give the user it’s health benefits. 80% of these are Catechins, and 60% of the entire extract is ECGC (epigallocatechin gallate), which is the Catechin with the most studies supporting its health benefits.
One of the benefits of Green Tea consumption is it acts as an aromatase inhibitor. Per a study
, green tea’s estrogen reduction activity may result from tea polyphenols inhibiting aromatase, the key enzyme converting androgens to estrone or estradiol. At 400mg, you’re getting a solid dose of Green Tea Extract, with all of the benefits associated with Green Tea.
Calcium D-Glucarate – 300mg Next up we have an ingredient that isn’t as popular as some of the other ingredients in here, however we do see it once in a while. According to a study done on rats, Calcium D-Glucarate may be good for reducing estrogen. Calcium D-Glucarate was also reported in 2002 to regulate estrogen metabolism. While there needs to be more studies done on Calcium D-Glucarate, there are quite a bit of potential health benefits associated with it so far, and it is one of the more promising ingredients on the market. You get 300mg in Estro-X.
DIM – 250mg DIM is commonly found in products aimed at reducing estrogen, and seems to be getting more popular every year. DIM has a study showing it to be antiestrogenic. We typically like to see this at 200mg-300mg, so at 250mg, it is dosed well in Estro-X.
KSM-66 Ashwagandha – 250mg KSM-66 Ashwagandha is a well known ingredient and MFit adds it to many products, and for good reason. KSM-66 is Ashwagandha, and it is known for its cortisol reducing benefits. Many are accustomed to 600mg of Ashwagandha per day dosage, and Estro-X provides 250mg. Now there is a reason for this, there is a study showing Ashwagandha being good for stress and anxiety at this dosage when compared to a placebo.
Red Clover – 150mg Red Clover is an herb that is part of the legume family. It is rich in isoflavones, and Red Clover has been shown in a study to be beneficial for post-menopausal women in terms of lowering the side effects. One isoflavone in particular, called Biochanin A has a study showing it to inhibit aromatase. Estro-X provides 150mg of Red Clover per day.
BioPerine® – 9mg BioPerine is Black Pepper Extract, which is a source of Piperine. This aids in absorption of certain ingredients. You get 9mg in Estro-X, which is a solid dose.
Final Takeaway MFit has put together a well-rounded natural estrogen and cortisol reducing product. It takes a natural/healthy approach, and has solid ingredients such as KSM-66, Resveratrol, and DIM, while also incorporating some not so popular ingredients such as Red Clover. If you’re looking for an estrogen balancing product that may aid in lowering cortisol as well, this is the product for you. It’s not only good for healthy hormone levels, it may aid in reducing cortisol as well, all while increasing cerebral blood flow and even mental cognition.
