“Microbiome” has been quite the buzzword over the last few years. It’s basically the collection of microorganisms within your body, which can impact many aspects of your health. These include mood, metabolization, immunity and more.

This is known as the estrobolome, which influences estrogen metabolization. Furthermore, it can result in a hormonal imbalance, leading to estrogen-influenced conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids, menorrhagia, and even PCOS.
