Menopause and phytoestrogens
I am menopausal and have been using a progesterone cream for 8 weeks but am also taking a vitamin/menopause supplement in the form of tablets. This includes a range of vitamins and minerals and other items such as green tea extract, sage and flaxseed lignans. My GP also recommended red clover. I am also trying to follow a healthy diet which includes flaxseeds with my oatmeal breakfast every day.
I am concerned that I may be taking too many items which have a phytoestrogen affect. The vitamin/menopause supplement has 120mg soya isoflavaone and the red clover 40mg. I am therefore taking a total of 160mg per day. Is this dangerous?
My main problems are feeling a little anxious and not myself. I have tried just using a cream but felt that this was not enough. I would appreciate your help.
