estrogen supplements
As women age, their bodies naturally produce less of the sex hormone estrogen. In some cases, this decrease can be too much and bring the body to below healthy levels. Luckily, some common supplements can assist the body in bringing these levels back to normal.

Here is a list of the best supplements to help increase estrogen in women.

Vitamin B, Vitamin D, Boron

  • All three of these vitamins/minerals play an important role in the body’s production of estrogen
  • If any of them are low, it can lead to a decrease in the body’s regular production of estrogen


  • A hormone that is produced by the body’s adrenal glands. It is a precursor to estrogen and testosterone
  • In regard to testosterone production, DHEA has only been found to work in older men. This may also be true of women who are looking to use DHEA to boost estrogen

Black Cohosh

  • An herb traditionally used by Native Americans – it has traditionally been used to treat a variety of feminine conditions including menopause
  • Evidence suggests that black cohosh could increase estrogen when it is low

Chasteberry, Red Clover, and Dong Quai

  • Chasteberry, Red Clover, and Dong Quai are herbs that are often used as traditional treatments for conditions such as menopause and PMS
  • Researchers have found that all three herbs show effects similar to estrogen in the body


  • A small shrub that grows in India, it is commonly used to help with stress or sometimes used as an adaptogen (supplements that help with promoting homeostasis in the body)
  • It has been shown in one study on older men to increase testosterone levels up to 22% and may have a similar effect on women and estrogen
