Low Estrogen and Hair Loss

Low Estrogen and Hair Loss

When a woman’s estrogen levels become low, as is the case during menopause, she might see signs of hair loss. This is because when estrogen levels are very low, the underlying levels of testosterone that women have makes it appearance by affecting the hair follicles and shortening their growth phase.

Another cause of such a hormonal imbalance is when you might have been taking estrogen supplements like birth control, and then suddenly stop. This hair loss is only temporary until the body manages to rebalance its hormones.

Hair loss is also quit prominent in cases where the ovarian function is not working, such as when a menopausal women has had her ovaries removed, or when certain cancers destroys the ovaries. This is because the ovaries are the main production source of estrogen.

Natural Ways to Boost Estrogen

Luckily, there are natural ways to increase your estrogen levels. One way is eating certain foods that are good sources of phytoestrogens, like: berries, seeds (flaxseeds in particular), grains, nuts, legumes, fruits, soy beans and other soy products. However, this might not be enough so we recommend taking the Manna Menopause Support Supplement which is packed with phyto-estrogens and can help to increase estrogen levels without side effects or long term health concerns.
