Hormones have many important effects on a woman’s health, they are essentially your body’s chemical messengers and carry all sorts of important information from one organ to another. Your endocrine glands produce the precise amount of each hormone needed for various processes in your body, including reproductive processes, energy, metabolism function, sexual function, mood and so much more. With more than 50 different hormones assisting the body with overall function and health, it’s important to support them as best as we can.
Hormones depend on beneficial fats to help maintain a hormone balance and dietary cholesterol to assist with the manufacturing of certain sex hormones such as progesterone, oestrogen, and testosterone. Foods to focus on include fish, nuts and seeds, chia seeds, flaxseed oil, olive oil, coconut oil, eggs and avocado.
