Peak Performance Estrogen Detox
Estrogen Detoxification for Men and Women
Support – Nourish – Reduce – Detoxify
We developed the original Estrogen Detox because of customer demand for an integrative, intelligent formula designed to quickly and efficiently reduce the load of estrogens (endogenous and exogenous) in the body.* This product quickly became a customer favorite—and the feedback we continue to receive is truly humbling.
Recently, we took everything we learned from the original product and everything we learned since, and redeveloped Estrogen Detox. This new formula contains all of the ingredients from the original (leaving nothing out), with five additional compounds to improve overall effectiveness while supporting the body with added antioxidants and detoxification support.*
This updated formula is our Peak Performance Estrogen Detox.
Peak Performance Estrogen Detox has been developed to offer complete estrogen detoxification to effectively and safely reduce and remove excess estrogen in the body, coupled with ingredients to support the liver and to lower oxidative stress.*
- To help release stored estrogen;
- To reduce the production/conversion (anti-aromatase) of estrogen in the body;
- To aid in the elimination of estrogen from the system;
- To lessen the detrimental effects of detoxification;
- To promote liver health and to lower oxidative stress on the body;
- To—in short—facilitate a holistic approach to estrogen detoxification.*
Peak Performance Estrogen Detox
Active Ingredients Order of Concentration:
- Calcium D-Glucarate;

Who is Estrogen Detox Intended For
"Equal effectiveness by both men and women"
Peak Performance Estrogen Detox is intended to be used with equal effectiveness by both men and women, and it has been designed specifically those customers who are struggling to balance and control high levels of estrogen and low levels of testosterone.
People are becoming educated about the effects and symptoms of estrogen dominance in the body. As the environment is continually saturated with chemical xenoestrogen (BPA, phthalates, parabens, and others) and diets can contain high levels of photo-estrogens, it is increasingly common to want to both manage estrogen load in the body while also minimizing exposure to xenoestrogens.
Alone or as part of an larger integrative approach to balance and improve endocrine and hormonal health, Peak Performance Estrogen Detox is an ally in promoting estrogen detoxification and wellness.*

Extended Ingredient Information
Listed In Alphabetical Order
Beta-Sitosterol (standardized to 80%)
To help reduce the aromatization of hormones (testosterone and estrogen) into estradiol
Beta-Sitosterol (ß-Sitosterol) is a a naturally occurring sterol ester present in plants, including Nettle Root (Urtica dioica Radix). While ß-Sitosterol has been shown to have wide benefits to health, it is included as part of the Peak Performance Estrogen Detox because of its anti-aromatase actions, preventing the aromatization of both testosterone and estrogen into estradiol.*
Beta-Sitosterol may assist in estrogen detoxification by reducing how much estradiol is synthesized in the body.*
Based upon the available research literature, Beta-Sitosterol may also help with managing heart disease and high cholesterol, promoting immune system health, reduce hair loss from male pattern balding (androgenic alopecia), certain cancers, and other illnesses.*
To promote estrogen detoxification and removal from the body
Calcium D-Glucarate is a naturally occurring ingredient present in apples, oranges, broccoli, spinach, and Brussel sprouts. As part of Peak Performance Estrogen Detox, Calcium D-Glucarate is of special importance because it joins with glucuronic acid in the liver to promote the release of estrogen from the body.
These compounds work to block an enzyme in the large intestine called beta-glucuronidase. Beta-glucuronidase allows estrogen to recirculate throughout the body.
While Calcium D-glucarate is a naturally occurring compound, is is present in small quantities as found in fresh fruits and vegetables. In fact, one serving of Peak Performance Estrogen Detox contains the equivalent phytonutrient activity Calcium D-Glucarate that would be found in over 150 pounds of fresh fruit and vegetables.
Citrus Flavonoids (Citrus aurantium)
To reduce the synthesis of estradiol, and to provide wide-reaching health benefits
Fruit from the Citrus aurantium tree contains a wide range of active ingredients, and several of these compounds have been shown to help regulate cardiovascular diseases, carcinogens, immune health, and the inflammatory response. Citrus flavonoids (from Citrus aurantium) may help prevent cell infiltration and localization in various cancers, such and lung and prostate cancer.*
Peak Performance Estrogen Detox contains citrus flavonoids because of their wide health promoting effects (important during any detoxification protocol), but also because certain citrus flavonoids (hesperetin) have been shown to inhibit the enzyme aromatase, thereby reducing the synthesis of estradiol, a potentially harmful estrogen metabolite.*
Chamomile extract (1% apigenin)
To help protect the body from stored and released estrogens
Apigenin (5,7-dyhydroxy flavones) is an extract isolated from chamomile flowers. Apigenin has multiple potential benefits in promoting health, but it is important as part of the Peak Performance Estrogen Detox protocol for its anti-estrogen properties.
Apigenin has been shown to have the following properties:
- Blocks estrogen receptors.*
Combined with trans-resveratrol, apigenin has shown great promise in the treatment of some cancers, including prostate.* As such, we encourage people to take a high quality trans-resveratrol along with Estrogen Detox.
To protect (block) estrogen receptors from re-uptake of stored and released estrogen hormones
Chrysin (5,7-dihydroxy flavone) is an extract found in the passion flower plant (Passiflora coerulea), which contains anti-aromatase and antioxidant compounds.* Chrysin acts as a primary ingredient in passion flower, which is widely used as a plant medicine for increasing virility and libido.
Through its anti-aromatase actions, chrysin may help protect the synthesis of estradiol from testosterone and estrogen.*
Some consider chrysin is considered the most potent naturally occurring, plant estrogen metabolizing compound.
To promotes estrogen detoxification and removal
DIM (Diindolylmethane). DIM is a naturally occurring compound present in cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli and cabbage), but it is present in inadequate quantities as to be useful as a potent nutraceutical.
DIM is well known for its beneficial effects on shifting estrogen metabolism away from the harmful 16 hydroxy estrogens metabolites.
Additionally, DIM has been shown to be protective against certain cancer, and high levels of estrogen are linked with breast and reproductive cancers in men and women.
Green Tea Extract
Antioxidant, anti-carcinogen, anti-inflammatory, and more*
Green Tea extract, as the name implies, is an extract of green tea, produced by the Camellia sinensis plant (the same source of our Divine Farmer RAW Camellia sinensis Pollen). Green tea extract is a potent antioxidant, making it an important compound to help support and protect the body during estrogen detoxification.* Green tea extract contains approximately twice the levels antioxidants as compared to vitamin C. Additionally, it has biochemical properties that promote antioxidant functions, anti-carcinogens, anti-inflammatory, and other benefits.*
Our Green Tea Extract has been standardized to contain:
- 90% Polyphenols;
- 45% EGCG (Epigallocatechin-3-gallate);
- 70% Catechins;
- <6% Caffeine.
In a review of the literature on the effects of green tea on kidney disease, researchers state that (source):
Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the major catechin of green tea extract, is known as a powerful antioxidant and reactive oxygen species scavenger... During the past decade, the health-promoting effects of EGCG have been intensively investigated. It is shown to inhibit leukocyte chemotaxis, quench free radicals, chelate transition metals, and interrupt lipid peroxidation chain reaction
Furthermore, researchers noted in a review on the literature on the health benefits of the polyphenols, that (source):
EGCG is known for its anti-inflammatory, hypoglycemic, hypocholesterlemic, anticancer, antihypertensive, antioxidant, antiviral, and pancreatic anticancer activities...It has been associated with antitumor, anti-Alzheimer, and anti- aging properties.
Green Tea Extract and Caffeine
- Contains under 6% caffeine.
Each servings of Peak Performance Estrogen Detox contains 135 milligrams of Green Tea Extract. At under 6% of caffeine, each serving contains less than 8.1 milligrams of caffeine.
By comparison, according to the USDA, on average a 12 ounce cup of brewed coffee will contain 142 milligrams of caffeine.
To balance hormone levels and promote liver detoxification and intestinal health
In the body, indole-3-carbinol is produced when glucobrassicin, (present in cruciferous vegetables, including broccoli and kale) is broken down. In the stomach, molecules of indole-3-carbinol bind together to form DIM (source). Through the synthesis of DIM, indole-3-carbinol promotes estrogen detoxification.*
Additionally, Indole-3-carbinol has shown great promise in the treatment of estrogen driven cancers, partly by blocking estrogen receptors.
Studies increasingly indicate that dietary indole-3-carbinol(I3C) prevents the development of estrogen-enhanced cancers including breast, endometrial and cervical cancers...estrogen increases the growth and survival of tumors, I3C causes growth arrest and increased apoptosis and ameliorates the effects of estrogen (source).
Milk Thistle Seed Extract
To protect and heal the liver, and to promote phase I and phase II liver detoxification
Silymarin, the active compound found in the seeds of the herb milk thistle, is a powerhouse for promoting liver health. It can help protect the liver from acute poisoning (source) and help promote liver health regeneration when liver disease (including cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma) is present (source).* As one study states:
Silymarin reduces liver injury caused by acetaminophen, carbon tetrachloride, radiation, iron overload, phenylhydrazine, alcohol, cold ischaemia and Amanita phalloides. Silymarin has been used to treat alcoholic liver disease, acute and chronic viral hepatitis and toxin-induced liver diseases (source).
Silymarin is an important ingredient of Peak Performance Estrogen Detox because of its protective and regenerative effects in liver health.* The liver is the primary organ responsibly for hormone—including estrogen—detoxification, and without health liver function, effectively elimination is impossible.*
A common cause of estrogen dominance in men and women is a diseased or a congested liver. If the liver cannot safely detoxify hormones, including estrogen, and other toxins, it processes them to be stored in adipose (fat) tissue.
Together, phase I and phase II liver detoxification is how the liver both provides the body with nutrients and how it eliminates excesses and toxins from the body, including through the large intestine, bladder, and lungs.*
A vital antioxidant compound
While not specifically an estrogen detoxification supplement, selenium is an important ingredient in Peak Performance Estrogen detox because of its potent antioxidant properties—helping to support and nourish the body during detoxification.
The National Institutes of Health state that:
Because of its effects on DNA repair, apoptosis, and the endocrine and immune systems as well as other mechanisms, including its antioxidant properties, selenium might play a role in the prevention of cancer (source).
Sulforaphane (from Brassica oleracea italica)
Supports estrogen detoxification and metabolism
Like DIM, Sulforaphane is a naturally occurring extract from cruciferous vegetables (exclusively broccoli). Sulforaphane is a potent inducer of phase II liver detoxification enzymes. The phase II detoxification enzymes are responsible for eliminating harmful toxins and carcinogens from the body.
These powerful enzymes safely metabolize estrogen.
As coupled with Milk Thistle Seed Extract (Sylimarin) sulforaphane supports both phase I and phase II liver detoxification and liver health, the primary organ responsible for estrogen detoxification.*
Additionally, Sulforaphane has been shown in the research literature to inhibit the proliferation of breast cancer cells and to reduce their expression of estrogen receptors.* Other research has shown sulforaphane to act directly in inhibiting cancer cell growth and in initiating apoptosis (cell death).*

I cannot begin to express with words how much this product has helped me. It has helped shorten my period as well as lighten it. I struggle with endometriosis so that means awful pain and awful periods. Even ovulation is extremely painful. This product has given me freedom from many of those things. It has helped my pain and I also don't get as many headaches. I also was diagnosed with estrogen dominance. I have not been retested since taking this product butbi plan on doing that soon so I can see how far my estrogen has dropped. Shipping time has been great and this company has awesome customer service! 5 stars! I very much love this product!
I have done many things to try to reduce estrogen, this is the first supplement I feel a major difference! Body aches, tiredness, sluggish, bloated, grumpy all of that has significantly improved! The mornings at 6am are so smooth for the most part now and I'm not crashing mid-day. Love!
Highly Effective. Does a great job! Will continue to use.
I have been using this stuff since it came out and have now started trying the new improved formula. It's good stuff and does the job!
Chrysin has been shown to do nothing when taken orally. Also, there is not an effective dose of apignen in there. There should be more DIM in there as well. For the price of the product I am not impressed.
This is a highly effective product. It does what it says and the price is fair. We will continue to purchase this product.
After my first 2 days of taking this, I started breaking out...quite badly, and also started to get a rash on my face, when I stopped taking this, they went away? Also it says to include milk thistle, but this herb is estrogenic? Dissapointed as I was really looking forward to see results
It's definitely early for me to give a review I gained weight rapidly after stopping my birth control pills so I ordered this for weight loss (estrogen detox from my hormonal changes). I like having various supplements in one capsule (instead of taking multiple vitamins and I haven't had any negative side effects so that's a plus.
Growing up being an over weight child didnt set me on the right track with health. Through my teens I lost the weight with fad diets and super restrictive eating habits. I always thought something was wrong with me. Even though i was smaller i still had no control over my appetite. I envied other people, and have been puzzled as to why I cannot be like them when it comes to control of my body. Not fat, but on the border of healthy and overweight is where I lingered for so long. Even though my diet was completely revamped and ridiculously healthy, i just couldnt seem to overcome my struggles. I am active, I surf every day sometimes twice a day, go to hot yoga, and I love hiking. However the active lifestyle I lived didnt show on my body as much as it should have. Then, more serious medical problems came into the limelight. Living in Australia as an American has kept me from having tests to properly diagnose my problems, but incredibly painful periods really started to make regular visits. I would inundate my body with strong pain meds, and I was still in bed in agony, screaming, and convulsing with pain. It was horrific, and my partner took me to the hospital once over it. Birth control was their solution, and i wasnt having it. It could be endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts, primary dismenhorrea, anything really. I went on an even stricter "endometriosis" diet, no dairy, no gluten, no red meat, no nasty fats, and only healthy oils. I felt a massive difference cutting out the dairy. After this dietary change i didnt lose any weight, and my periods were finally manageable to the point where seven ibuprofens would make the pain bearable. I was still in bed, and feeling horrible for up to two days, sometimes longer. I have lived like this for two years. Recently embarking on 7 months of sailing on a small boat through the South Pacific in stressful situations and bad weather with this ailment i dug deeper into the cause of the potential diagnosis. All of them came down to the same root issue, too much estrogen in my system. The symptoms of estrogen dominance answered all the questions i ever had about myself, appetite control, thinning hair, fat around mid section, puffy hands, mood swings, anxiety, painful periods... etc.. It also is the cause of endometriosis, fibroids, etc. I started looking into Estrogen Dominance, and stumbled onto this page. I seriously did my research and looked into other supplements, but none had the well rounded liver support along with DIM like this one depicted above. It was either 10 grand for surgery, or $150 for an alternative solution of 3 bottles (3 month dose). I chose the latter. The first week of taking this supplement I felt different, but not necessarily better. My breasts were really sore, which is a sign of hormone changes. Had my period a week later, better but still not great. I kept taking them, and in one month I have effortlessly shed 7 kilos (about 14 pounds). For the first time in my life, I have felt like i have control over my body. I get hungry, but I am satisfied after a small meal and dont feel like an animal having to consume everything. I have little to no mood swings, and my partner has said I am a lot happier. I just feel great! I cannot explain the joy and difference it has brought to my life to feel sane and healthy! Im still shedding the weight, and I feel like I am eating the same! Well, the big test was my next period, and it was sooooo much better! I only took 3 pain meds throughout the whole thing (only because i was worried the pains would get worse!), it was a lot shorter, not as heavy, and i had an epic day of surfing during what usually is the first and most painful day of my period. I couldnt believe it. I have my life back! Its not centered around when my period is going to come next, and im not in fear! It made me so happy to feel like im winning in this battle of health my own way and not simply masking the issue with birth control like the doctors recommended. I wish i had found this product a lot sooner in my life, but I am 27 so i feel as if it is not too late. I would highly recommend this for anyone who suffers from endometriosis, or anything similar! I am looking forward to coming back to the states and shopping for a whole new wardrobe!
