Building hormonal balance takes several months or even years for many people. Upsetting the balance is accompanied by unpleasant symptoms. It is important to emphasize that some people have no symptoms at all and a routine blood test before pregnancy reveals that they have hormonal problems. Restoring hormonal balance is extremely important during PMS or perimenopause, or when planning a pregnancy. This is where ashwagandha, moringa, maca powder or our hormone-balancing mixture of the three adaptogenic plants can help in a natural way.
It might sound surprising to many, but it's true: hormones affect almost every chemical process in our body.
Our hormone levels affect our overall health. And the hormone problem does not only affect women, however, it is a fact that female hormones mostly come to the top in gynecological complaints. The majority of women can face hormonal problems more often as they get older. Many are affected by premenstrual syndrome, menopause and its unpleasant symptoms, the problems that aggravate pregnancy, or the mental diagnoses that can often be traced back to hormonal concerns/problems, such as dizziness and depression. The importance of female hormones is undeniable, but restoring them is often no easy task. Did you know that the stress associated with the fast pace of life, the "hormone wrecking" chemicals and toxins in the environment can also have a negative effect on hormonal balance?
What is the role of hormones?
Before delving deeper into the subject, it is important to clarify what hormones actually are and what their role is in the human body. Hormones are so-called chemical messengers that have an effect on the functioning of the entire body. Hormone levels are constantly changing, and to a certain extent this is completely normal.
In female bodies the ovaries, thyroid, adrenal glands and pituitary gland are responsible for secreting hormones. Unhealthy eating, lack of adequate exercise and restful sleep, as well as constant stress cause serious disruption in hormonal balance, which can lead to a number of health problems.
What Symptoms Can Female Hormone Imbalances Cause?
We speak of a hormonal imbalance when too many (or too few) hormones form and enter the bloodstream. The most common symptoms of the lack of hormonal balance are sudden unexplained weight gain (problem with losing weight), fatigue, anxiety, problems related to sleep and digestion, acne, or other skin diseases. According to research, because of its key role, even the smallest hormonal problem causes serious side effects throughout the body. That is why it is extremely important to pay attention to the signs of the body.
How Can Natural Hormone Regulators Help?
Many cannot imagine a healthy life without vitamins, but besides vitamins it is worth looking around in nature's pharmacy. Luckily, there are plenty of natural hormone regulators that can help when you're struggling with hormonal issues. The best known of these is the Ashwagandha, also known as the 'dream berry'. This medicinal plant used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years, effectively reduces the level of stress hormones, while at the same time accelerating blood flow towards women's reproductive organs. This particular plant is also a natural aphrodisiac, which can be very beneficial, especially as one ages. According to a study published in 2012, Ashwagandha may help fight hot flashes, depression, and anxiety associated with menopause. In addition to the dream berries, one should also mention the Maca roots.
The medicinal plant, also known as 'Peruvian ginseng', was already used by the Incas to treat various issues. Like Ashwaganda, powdered Maca can help with fertility issues and sexual dysfunction. With their regular consumption, the hot flashes caused by the menopause can also be reduced. The third, and perhaps least known, hormone-regulating medicinal plant is Moringa, also known as the 'drumstick tree'.
Because of its high antioxidant, Vitamin A and C content, it is also effective in reducing stress. In addition, it is extremely rich in fiber, so it can regulate the level of estrogen, testosterone and progesterone. Alongside Moringa, Shatavari plays a key role in restoring hormonal balance. According to the currently available studies*, it can be said that Shatavari also has a positive effect on healthy reproductive health.
Thanks to its high antioxidant content, it can be used for hormonal imbalances, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and infertility, among others. In addition to Ashwagandha and Maca , the hormone balance mix powder also contains shatavari powder, Beetroot powder and baobab beans, which are essential for the healthy functioning of the female hormone system.
