In brief: None
An anti-aromatase drug given to a post-menopausal woman is de facto an "anti-estrogen", since aromatase is the enzyme which converts ovarian testosterone and adrenal androgens to estrogens.
They effectively block stimulation of hormone-sensitive cancers, but they have no place as a nutritional supplement as they markedly interfere with bone metabolism.

In brief: Aromatase inhibitors
Aromatase inhibitors are by prescription only.
They should only be used under the guidance of a physician.
