Dear wray
I have used NATPRO cream almoust 2 years , and I am feeling
better and better, but now when I put my breakfest maca-powder,
bee pollen and coconut oil, my symptoms is going bad directions
could I have avoid these products and could these products increase estrogen dominance? and how about collagen, I take collagen pills 5000 mg/per daily? Because my nails and hair is not in shape?

Hi Helena I'm delighted you're feeling so much better. I feel it could be the maca, certainly not the coconut oil, this of all the oils has the lowest oestrogenic activity. And I've not heard of the bee pollen causing problems. Why not try stopping the maca for a bit and see if it helps. Interestingly maca apparently has no affect on oestrogen or testosterone levels according to this one paper, see here. And yet this paper said it increased oestradiol levels, see here. It does appear to increase diastolic blood pressure slightly too, see here. These are two more papers here and here. I don't think the collagen would be a problem either. If your nails and hair are not healthy, try taking 5000iu vitamin D per day, 2000-4000mg/day inositol, 2000mg/day N-acetyl cysteine and 3mg/day biotin. All these help hair, skin and nails. So too does taurine, see here. Please avoid all foods containing fructose, as that damages collagen. It's best to have a vitamin D test done every 6 months or so, specially living in Finland where there's no sun in winter. Let me know how you get on. Take care Wray
