What is estradiol?

Estradiol is the most active form of estrogen in the human body and helps maintain the size and density of breast tissue, though excessive amounts may increase the risk of some forms of breast cancer. Estradiol has a positive effect on skin thickness, skin collagen, water content, skin softness, and blood flow to the skin. Estradiol lowers LDL (the bad cholesterol) and total cholesterol while increasing HDL levels (the good cholesterol) and also significantly reduces the risk of developing heart disease.

Estradiol is the primary estrogen produced by the ovaries and is the principal female sex hormone responsible for secondary sex characteristics. Estradiol modulates the course of both the menstrual cycle and menopause, and proper levels, support well being during menstruation.
