Phytoestrogens are chemicals in plant foods that can operate in the body like the hormone estrogen, though it is not there only . Most phytoestrogens are either lignans, coumestans or isoflavonoids. They can be found in many foods, including seeds, grains and beans.

If you would like to increase your phytoestrogen intake, eat soybeans, flaxseeds, various beans such as pinto, split peas and lima beans, as well as alfalfa and clover sprouts.

Studies are still being done on phytoestrogens to prove whether they can affect the risk of breast cancer. Some doctors recommend being cautious and eating low amounts of phytoestrogens, due to possible harmful effects. As with anything, eating phytoestrogens in moderation can be healthy.
