Join us as we cover the pivotal role played by estrogen in their journey toward excellence. We'll delve into the often-overlooked hormone, discovering how it becomes a game-changer in their athletic achievements. This episode will explore the physiological advantages of estrogen, its impact on long-term health, and why it stands as a crucial component in the performance of female athletes.

We'll also shed light on the Female Athlete Triad, a syndrome that casts a shadow on the long-term health and performance of female athletes. Throughout the episode, we'll emphasize the critical importance of meeting the energy demands of rigorous training to ensure that estrogen levels remain strong, contributing not only to their physical well-being but also to their success in sports.
