Natural Breast Formula, a natural supplement for breast health
Natural Breast Formula is an innovative, high-quality supplement, packed with nutrients beneficial for breast health. Its various ingredients have been meticulously selected: phytonutrients that contribute to good hormonal balance and the prevention of abnormal cell growth, antioxidants that help protect cells, trace elements, vitamins, etc. Discover more about its composition and properties.
What is in the supplement Natural Breast Formula?
The excellent Natural Breast Formula contains 7 natural ingredients all chosen and dosed with the utmost precision. They are:
Di-indolylmethane (DIM). This bioactive substance has been identified in cruciferous vegetables(beetroot, cauliflower, mustard greens ...) A number of studies suggest that DIM helps ensure normal oestrogen metabolism. Supplementing with DIM encourages production of the ‘good’ 2-hydroxyestrone metabolites, and discourages that of the undesirable 16-hydroxyestrone metabolites (1-4);
PureSea™, a patented extract of Ascophyllum nodosum, with a high iodine content. Known also as bladderwrack, Ascophyllum is a type of brown seaweed with a high nutritional content. In particular, it contains fucoxanthin, a highly sought-after pigment from the carotenoid family, which appears to combat uncontrolled cell growth (5-7);
HMRlignan™, an excellent extract of Norway spruce knots. This substance is a source of the extensively-studied phenolic compounds called lignans. The body converts certain plant lignans into enterolignans, or ‘mammalian lignans’ (namely enterodiol and enterolactone). These compounds are classed as phytoestrogens: with a similar structure to that of 17-β-oestradiol (E2) (the main female sex hormone) they are able to bind to oestrogen receptors. Enterolactone, for example, binds only weakly to oestrogen receptors, and as a result, significantly reduces oestrogenic activity. It’s worth noting too that the 7-hydroxymatairesinol in HMRlignan™ also has anti-degenerative properties (8-14);
An extract of flax seed rich in secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG). SDG is also an important lignan (phytoestrogen) which is becoming increasingly popular in the nutraceutical sector for its ability to combat oxidative stress. It may also have anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic effects (15-17);
Calcium D-glucarate. This calcium salt is recognised for inhibiting the enzyme beta-glucuronidase and thus facilitating the elimination of excess oestrogen. Elevated beta-glucuronidase activity is also associated with abnormal cell proliferation (18-23);
Vitamin D3. The ‘sunshine vitamin’ is important to human health in many ways, including supporting both normal calcium and phosphorus absorption and good immune system function. It may, in some cases, be able to stem the growth of damaged cells (24-27);
And N-acetylcysteine (NAC), a precursor of the well-known amino acid L-cysteine. NAC is a powerful antioxidant which helps combat free radical proliferation and thus prevent cells from being corrupted (28-29).
What benefits are offered by Natural Breast Formula?
Natural Breast Formula has been specially developed to support breast health. Supplementing with this product will increase your intake of breast-beneficial nutrients.
By encouraging production of 2-hydroxyestrone, facilitating the elimination of excess oestrogen or binding to oestrogen receptors, the DIM, calcium salt and enterolignans will help maintain good hormonal balance which is beneficial to breast health(30-33).
PureSea™ and HMRlignan™, along with the flax seed extract, calcium D-glucarate and vitamin D3, will also help combat the proliferation of deviant cells. Some scientific studies suggest that lignans are able, in particular, to inhibit cell migration and cell adhesion (34). The supplement Natural Breast Formula also contains numerous antioxidants: N-acetylcysteine (NAC), the phlorotannins in PureSea™, the 7-hydroxymatairesinol in HMRlignan™... By boosting the fight aganst oxidative stress, these compounds help to prevent damage to cells (35).
3 more reasons why you should try this supplement
The PureSea™ extract in Natural Breast Formula also contains a significant amount of iodine. As we know, this trace element supports good energy metabolism and helps maintain healthy skin and production of thyroid hormones, known for their positive effect on cells (36-37).
Its vitamin D3 contributes to strong immune defences and the process of cell division (38-39). It also helps maintain blood calcium levels(40). We have chosen vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol, as it is more effective than vitamin D2 at increasing levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (the form present in the blood) (41). It’s worth noting that as well as causing fatigue and muscle pain, a lack of vitamin D may also have an effect at a cellular level(42-43).
Its N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is also a precursor of glutathione. This tripeptide molecule, which facilitates electron exchange in cells, is regarded as the best antioxidant of all(44). Glutathione is also involved in eliminating heavy metals and protecting cells from certain pollutants and toxins such as fuel and cigarettes (45).
How should you take this supplement?
The recommended dose is 2 capsules of Natural Breast Formula a day, taken with a glass of water.
Advice for maintaining optimal breast health
Here are a few practical tips to help you protect the health of your breasts:
reduce your alcohol consumption, as alcohol can increase oestrogen levels and thus the risk of breast problems;
eat plenty of high-fibre foods(raspberries, blackberries, apples, papaya, white or red beans, artichokes, cabbages, lentils, chickpeas ...) (46);
try to lose weight, especially if you’re going through the menopause (adipose tissue produces large amounts of oestrogen in women);
take regular exercise;
avoid exposure to pesticides, herbicides, insecticides and other endocrine disruptors;
make sure you get screened every two years, especially if you’re over 50. This is particularly important if there are other women in your family who have suffered with breast problems, suggesting a possible genetic predisposition, or if you yourself have had concerns of this sort in the past. After examining your breasts (palpation), your doctor or gynaecologist may recommend (palpation) a mammogram, or ultrasound scan.
Supplements that work in synergy with Natural Breast Formula
Are you looking for other supplements to support good hormonal balance and healthy cells?
Why not try the excellent Natural Anti Aromatase Support. This formulation is designed to help counter the process of ‘aromatisation’ (the conversion of androgens into oestrogens caused by the enzyme aromatase) and more generally, to help regulate oestrogen production.
In terms of cell health, we’d suggest AntiOxidant Synergy, a supplement with a particularly high content of natural antioxidants: catechins, polyphenols, curcumin, resveratrol, etc. It’s the perfect supplement for helping to reduce oxidative stress which is damaging to health.
Directions for use
Adults. Take 2 capsules a day.
Note: in the case of doses above 2000IU a day, it’s advisable to first take a 25-hydroxyvitamin D test. If you suffer from kidney disease, do not take vitamin D3 without the advice of your therapist. Do not exceed 10,000IU a day, all sources combined, except on the advice of your therapist.
