The words estrogen and androgen are general terms for the main class of sex hormones, which need to be biosynthesized in the appropriate way for optimizing certain endrocrine functions*. We mentioned androgens like testosterone and androstenedione, but this also includes the group of estrogens such as estrone, estriol and estradiol as well as the third class of sex hormones called progestogens, like progesterone.

Both men and women utilize both androgen and estrogen compounds, but androgens are utilized in much greater quantities in men and likewise estrogen is utilized in larger amounts in women, especially during the childbearing years.

When we have a healthy balance of these hormonal substances things like weight gain, insomnia, fatigue, low sex drive, depression and more serious health conditions become less of an issue.

Moreover, we are all subject to toxins in the environment that produce estrogen like qualities linked to a number of health conditions like fertility issues*, benign fibroid growths* and breast cancer. Consuming androgenic foods, like pine pollen, helps to balance these higher amounts of xenoestrogens.

Generally, pollen extract is not recommended for children and should be avoided by male adolescences, who on average naturally produce healthy amounts of testosterone.
