What are Estrogens and why are they so powerful

Hi my name is dr richard inquenti an integrative medicine doctor and a compounding pharmacist board certified in anti-aging and a fellow in anti-aging metabolic and functional medicine i help patients and physicians formulate the right products for their situation based on the precision medicine principles precision medicine helps patients maintain their hormone levels

At therapeutically valuable levels both pre and post menopause routine hormone levels are very crucial especially when patients are on hormone restoration treatments it has been estimated that natural identical estrogens has approximately 400 crucial functions in the human body there is great confusion in the medical community about what’s the difference between

Natural estrogens and synthetic estrogens the most plausible explanation for this is that synthetic estrogens do not fit the estrogen receptors in the human body as effectively as natural identical estrogens in some cases synthetic estrogens instead block estrogen receptors in the body more so estradiol which is the most powerful natural and identical estrogen

That is produced naturally in a woman’s body has a short half-life compared to some synthetic estrogens which have been shown to stay in the body for up to 13 weeks due to the fact that the enzymes designed to metabolize the body’s own estrogen do not break down synthetic estrogens as effectively studies show that synthetic estrogens like the estrogens in birth

Control pills has a potency that is almost 200 times that of natural estradiol note also that the body has receptor sites for estrogen in many locations such as the brain the muscles the bone the bladder the gut uterus ovaries vagina breast eyes heart lungs and blood vessels the following are some of the crucial functions of estrogen in the human body for more

Information check out an integrative medicine textbook by rackle 12th edition chapter 35 page 35 written by dr pamela smith whom i recognize is one of the best hormone experts in the world stimulates the production of choline acetyl transferase now what is choline acetyl transferase it is a transferase enzyme responsible for the synthesis of the neurotransmitter

Acetylcholine alteration in some cholinergic neurons may account for the disturbances of alzheimer disease increases metabolic rate improves insulin sensitivity studies have shown that bioidentical estrogens helps optimize insulin activity also in premenopausal women availability of sufficient estrogens produce estrogen which in turn helps in the in the control

Of insulin resistance estrogens also help in the regulation of body temperature estrogen helps in the prevention of muscle damage it has been shown that estrogen has many positive effects on skeletal muscle including protection against exercise induced damage attenuation of post damage inflammation helps in the enhancement of post damage muscle repair helps in

The enhancement of post atrophy recovery of muscle mass helps improve maintenance and enhancement of post menopausal muscle mass and strength and also helps improve muscle hypertrophic response to exercise by doing this it helps in the maintenance of muscle as well estrogen has a dramatic effect on musculoskeletal function beyond the known relationship between

Estrogen and bone it directly affects the structure and function of other musculoskeletal tissues such as muscle tendon and ligament in these other musculoskeletal tissues estrogen improves muscle mass and strength and increases the collagen content of connective tissues estrogens has been involved in the regulation of sleep and hence helps one sleep deeply an

Evaluation of several studies on sleep shows that oestrogen usually improves the quality of sleep helps reduce the time to fall asleep and also helps increase the amount of rapid eye movement or rem sleep research also shows that estrogens natural and identical and not synthetic estrogens reduces the number of times a patient awakens at night estrogens also helps

Improve cognitive ability and function natural estrogens helps in the reduction of cataracts oestrogens have been shown to help in the maintenance of arteries estrogen administration has been shown to promote vasodilation in humans and in experimental animals in part by stimulating prostacyclin and nitric oxide synthesis as well as by decreasing the production

Of vasoconstrictor agents such as cyclooxygenase derived products reactive oxygen species angiotensin ii and endothelin one estrogens helps increase blood flow inhibits platelet stickiness decreases the accumulation of plaque on the arteries enhances magnesium uptake and use maintains the amount of collagen in the skin reduces inflammatory responses and thereby

Decreases heart disease risk estrogens help lower blood pressure estrogen’s known effects on the cardiovascular system include a mix of positive and negative increases hdl cholesterol the good kind and also helps decrease ldl cholesterol the bad kind of cholesterol estrogens help decrease low density lipoprotein and prevents its oxidation helps maintain memory

Increases reasoning and new ideas helps with fine motor skills increases the water content of the skin and is responsible for its thickness and softness enhances the production of nerve growth factor increases high-density lipoprotein by 10 to 15 percent reduces the overall risk of heart disease by 40 to 50 percent decreases lipoprotein a it has been shown that

Elevated plasma concentrations of lipoprotein a are a causal risk factor for coronary heart disease and calcific aortic valve stenosis acts as a natural calcium channel blocker to keep the arteries open enhances energy although endogenous e2 favors body weight homeostasis by increasing energy expenditure exogenous estrogens may promote energy balance by influencing

Both energy intake and energy expenditure improves mood increases concentration maintains bone density increases sexual interest reduces homocysteine decreases wrinkles protects against macular degeneration decreases the risk of colon cancer helps prevent tooth loss aids in the formation of neurotransmitters in the brain such as serotonin
