hormone Balancing Superfoods #5
One of the most common hormonal imbalances in women is estrogen dominance. This happens when the ratio of estrogen to progesterone (your two main menstrual cycle hormones) gets out of whack.
A simple way to keep estrogen in balance? Staying regular 💩😉
When things get backed up, your body can reabsorb too much estrogen, which throws the estrogen-progesterone ratio out. It’s not the only cause of hormonal imbalance, but a healthy gut certainly plays a major role in healthy hormones.
Since fermented foods are a great source of natural probiotics, they’re a great way to keep your digestive system happy. Yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, tempeh, kimchi, miso, kombucha, and pickles – anything that’s fermented is rich in gut-friendly bacteria.
But beware: choose naturally fermented products with as little added sugar as possible (yoghurt, I’m looking at you).
