Fibrocystic Breast Disease

Fibrocystic Breast Disease (Cyclic Mastalgia)

Fibrocystic breast disease (FBD) is a term given to a very common group of benign conditions affecting the breast in younger women. Both breasts become tender or painful and lumpy, and these symptoms vary at different times in the menstrual cycle.

Supplement Considerations

Female Support Nutrients

A female support nutrient should contain natural agents that have been shown in clinical studies to effectively manage fibrocystic breast disease.


Essential Fatty Acids

An essential fatty acid should contain the perfect blend of essential oils shown to reduce the inflammation associated with breast tenderness in fibrocystic breast disease.

High Potency Multiple Vitamin and Mineral

A high potency multiple vitamin and mineral should contain important dosages of Vitamin E, Magnesium and B-vitamins that have effect on the health of breast cells. The nutrients also enhance the anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative effects of essential fatty acids in the management of fibrocystic breast disease.

Additional Supplement Considerations

Additional Ground Flaxseed

Ground Flaxseeds give rise to unique lignans that have been shown to help tone down the over stimulation of estrogen on reproductive tissue, in the management of fibrocystic breast disease. It also contains a type of fiber that helps the body more effectively eliminate excess estrogen from the body.

Additional Chasteberry
