How to lower estrogen levels with supplements

It is all too apparent that estrogen levels are at an all time high but how can taking the right supplement can solve this problem?

Many men who are overweight carry body fat in a similar way that overweight women do.  Too much fat in the hips, glutes, and thighs.

Women with high levels of fat storage in the hips, glutes, and thighs are also clearly estrogen dominant and need to address their hormone balance.

So why is having too much Estrogen bad?

Estrogen increases Cortisol which is a stress hormone in the body. Increased levels of Cortisol can develop into blood sugar problems, which can lead to obesity or even worse diabetes. Having too much Cortisol in your body can also increase your cravings for high calorie food such as processed carbohydrates and sugar.

Too much estrogen in your body can have an adverse impact on the sex drives of both men and women. High estrogen levels make it harder for men to get and maintain erections if their estrogen levels are too high.

High estrogen levels can also impact your mental well being.  If there is an imbalance in your estrogen levels you are more likely to suffer mood swings and depression. It can also have an impact on your memory.

Some other side negative effects of excess estrogen levels include weight gain, feeling fatigued, headaches and loss of muscle mass.

Nothing good can come from having high levels of Estrogen.  It is time to address this TODAY.  Along with eating a clean diet and exercising there is one supplement you can take that lowers estrogen naturally.


Crush estrogen dominance, lose stubborn body fat, reduce inflammation, and improve mood.

The Best Estrogen Blocker Supplement available- EC Control
Estrogen dominance rises when men fail to produce enough testosterone to keep estrogen levels in check. In addition, men often have high estrogen levels due to rapid conversion of testosterone into estrogen via aromatase enzymes. High exposure to xenoestrogens, stress, poor diet digestion issues, smoking, alcohol consumption are among the other common reasons why both men and women have excess estrogen levels.

Check out this video detailing the dangers of having too much Estrogen:

Along with taking Mahler’s Estrogen Control you can also lower your estrogen levels by avoiding this 5 things and removing them from your diet:
1.) Sugar
2.) Soy
3.) Conventional dairy
4.) Conventional processed meat
5.) BPA plastic (water bottles)

Make sure you address your diet as it is the primary cause of high estrogen levels.  You need to manage your insulin levels as high insulin produces a poor endocrine profile prevents estrogen metabolism.

Check out this great resource on the Anti-Estrogen Diet and how you can reduce your levels by addressing the types of food that you should eat.

Think of EC as supplemental insurance to stack the hormone optimization deck in your favor and help ensure you achieve all of your health and fitness goals.*  It is the answer on how to cure estrogen dominance.
So what exactly is in EC? Glad you asked. EC consists of potent extracts of Curcumin C3 Complex, Brassaiopsis Glomerulata, and Prunella Vulgaris. These are the three most effective natural ingredients for battling estrogen dominance.*


There are also numerous additional benefits that each of the ingredients in EC offer. Let’s take a closer look at each ingredient.

Curcumin C3 Complex®
Curcumin C3 Complex® alone is a very effective estrogen blocker which works by forcefully blocking estrogen receptors on the cellular level. The right extract of Curcumin is so strong that some studies have suggested that it may be even more efficacious than the drug Tamoxifen at lowering estrogen without any of the side effects!*

Curcumin C3 Complex® is obtained from the dried rhizomes of Curcuma longa (Turmeric) and standardized for minimum 95% Curcuminoids.

The name C3 Complex® has reference to its three main chemical compounds – Curcumin, Demethoxycurcumin (DMC) and Bisdemethoxycurcumin (BDMC)—collectively known as “Curcuminoids”.

In addition to being a powerful estrogen blocker, the benefits of Curcumin are endless and include:

  • Supports testosterone production in men due to heightened activity of enzymes such as 3-beta-HSD and 17-beta-HSD in the testes. These enzymes are involved in the biosynthesis of testosterone*
  • Has as an anabolic/anticatabolic effect in muscle tissue*
  • Improves prostate health by protecting the prostate against androgens*
  • Has been shown to block the growth of fat tissue and stimulates fat burning in the body*
  • Boosts the blood vessel widening effect of nitric oxide*
  • Increases glucose uptake into muscle cells*
  • Reduces inflammation*
  • Improves joint health and pain management*
  • Relieves arthritis*
  • Mitigates depression*
  • Ramps up the growth of new neurons and battles various degenerative processes in the brain*
    Improves brain health by encouraging more acetylcholine to make it to the brain*
  • Enhances insulin sensitivity which is critical for fat loss, hormone optimization, and overall health*
  • Upgrades liver function and liver health*
  • Promotes heart health and ideal blood pressure*
  • Sharpens the function of the endothelium, which is the lining of the blood vessels*
  • Elevates metabolism to improve fat loss*
  • Is a strong antioxidant and improves the immune system*
  • Has potent antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties*
  • Cultivates gut health and alleviates digestion issues*
  • Supports healthy cholesterol levels*
  • Promotes bone health*
  • Relieves the symptoms eczema and inflammatory bowel disease*
  • Brassaiopsis glomerulata Extract
  • Brassaiopsis glomerulata is a herb that has been used in China to relieve a variety of issues including back pain and constipation.*

A few years ago, researchers ascertained that extracts of the leaves of Brassaiopsis glomerulata also have powerful anti-oestrogenic effects making it a potent natural aromatase inhibitor. One study even showed it is as powerful as the leading aromatase inhibitor drug.*

You guessed it, the same extracts used in the studies are in EC to ensure you benefit from the potent estrogen blocking effects of Brassaiopsis glomerulata.*

Prunella Vulgaris PE 20:1
Prunella Vulgaris has potent anti-estrogenic properties via activation of the the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) (7). AHR is involved in protein expression in the body and its activation has been shown to interfere with estrogen receptor alpha (ERalpha) due to direct cross-talk.*

Prunella also has a variety of other benefits including:

  • Reduces inflammation and is a natural antibiotic*
  • Alleviates allergies and sore throat*
  • Reduces fevers*
  • Mitigates stomach issues such as diarrhea and internal bleeding*
  • Promotes liver and heart health*
  • Supports healthy blood pressure*
  • Natural detoxifier and diuretic*
  • Helps lower high blood glucose levels.*

Below is a testimonial from Dr. Mark Gordon, who is known as a leader in the field of Interventional Endocrinology ( Hormone Replenishment Therapies ).

I received EC from you about 6 months ago and found two males with uncontrolled estradiol increases even on a 40mg every-third-day protocol. Patient (1) had an Estradiol of 67.4ng/ml without any symptoms of nipple sensitivity or breast fullness. A repeat Estradiol 90 days after 2 caps a day returned a 23.7ng/ml. The other patient’s (2), initial Estradiol prior to starting testosterone therapy was 117ng/ml, We placed him on EC and followed up in 3 months and his Estradiol level dropped to 42.4ng/l. With the results on these two challenging cases, I will now make EC known to our patients as an option for treating their real and assumed elevations in Estradiol.

Here is another testimonial…..

This supplement helped balance my estrogen and it only took 2-3 months of taking it regularly! it regulated my menstrual cycles and helped with my acne I was getting from the excessive estrogen. I totally recommend this product for women who suffer from PCOS, fibroids or just have a lot of estrogen in general.

–Tia Bridge

Most users will use 1 cap 2x per day and there are 90 caps per bottle. Thus, each bottle will last most users six weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best way to use EC?
I recommend you start with 2 caps per day. Works best when taken with meals as it also improves insulin sensitivity and glucose disposal (less glucose being stored as fat) so take one cap with 2 meals.

If you notice a decrease in sex drive, increased joint pain, or a poor mood, it means EC is working too well and has driven down your estrogen levels too much. Just stop taking EC for a week and reduce the dosage to one cap per day to get estrogen in the optimal range (not too low or high).

The best way to use the product is 8 weeks on and 4 weeks off to avoid becoming desensitized to the herbs in the formula.

How is EC different from Aggressive Strength Testosterone Booster?
Aggressive Strength is a potent testosterone booster with moderate estrogen control while EC is a potent estrogen control supplement which in turn will have a moderate effect on increasing testosterone in men.* In addition, women can take EC to address estrogen dominance while Aggressive Strength is only for men. Aggressive Strength Testosterone Booster

Can I take EC with the Aggressive Strength Testosterone Booster?
Yes, you can and should if you have high estrogen levels. If you’re overweight you can rest assured that your estrogen levels are likely very high. High estrogen levels impede fat loss so reducing estrogen will help accelerate fat loss.* Otherwise, you can use EC in between cycles of Aggressive Strength or use a lower dosage of EC with Aggressive Strength cycles such as 1-2 caps per day.

Can EC reduce estrogen too much?
Not likely unless you take more than the recommended dose. if you notice joint pain or a decrease in sex drive then you have reduced estrogen too much. Take a few days off from EC and then reduce the dosage.

What is the optimal estrogen level for a healthy man?
An estradiol reading of 20 to 30 pg/ml. According to the Life Extension Organization, below 18 pg/ml increases osteoporosis risk and greater than 30 pg/ml increases heart attack and stroke incidence.*  If you need your estradiol levels checked click here

Should EC be taken with meals or on an empty stomach?
Take with meals as the ingredients in EC absorb better with food and also help with digestion, insulin sensitivity, and glucose utilization.

Can women take EC?
Yes, women over 21 that are not pregnant or nursing can. Make sure to consult with your physician before taking any nutrition supplement.

How old do I need to be to take EC?

How long should I run EC?
Use 8 weeks on and 4 weeks off

Why do I need to take 4 weeks off for every 8 weeks of use?
One can become desensitized to herbs if taken for too long. By cycling 8 weeks on and then 4 weeks off, you keep sensitivity to the ingredients for maximum benefit.

Is post cycle support needed for this product?
No, EC is not a hormone or steroid and does not shut down natural production of testosterone.

Is EC Gluten free?
Yes, all of Mike Mahler’ supplements are gluten-free as well as free of soy, dairy, animal by-products, and msg.

Do you offer a money back guarantee?
EC has a 30-day money back guarantee for first-time users.
