    Estrogenhas an estimated four hundred crucial functions in the body. The ovaries make 60% of our estrogen while the other 40% comes from other sources, including the adrenal glands. Both estradiol and estrone are stimulatory estrogens especially to the breast and uterine tissue. Therefore, they should be used in small amounts and monitored properly. Estriol is not considered to be stimulatory and is believed to be protective against hormone-related cancers.
