3 adaptogens to regulate hormonal balance
Experiencing fatigue, mood swings, insomnia : what if it was an hormonal disorder ?
Our modern lifestyle is not always favorable to a good hormonal balance: stress, endocrine disruptors, pollution or sedentary lifestyle, all of which have an impact on our hormonal balance. True biological messengers, hormones play a decisive role in our physical and mental balance.
How to restore balance ?
Certain adaptogenic plants, roots & mushrooms have a direct impact on our hormonal balance and can, when consumed regularly, help regulating hormonal activity:
Reishi is a complete package and one of the most studied adaptogen for its many benefits on the body, the nervous system and the hormonal system:
- It helps the nervous system to relax in order to calm both mind and body
- Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties help protect cells from oxidation and stress
- Its detoxifying properties help strengthening our immune defenses
Reishi helps fighting hormonal imbalances by strengthening the central nervous and endocrine systems, balancing hormones naturally. Its unique composition makes it a great ally to revitalize the body and naturally harmonize its hormonal system. Incorporated daily, in the right form, it delivers all its powerful healing benefits.
If you are feeling tired, stressed, exhausted, ashwagandha might be the answer. Used in Ayurvedic medicine for its many revitalizing properties, ashwagandha is known for its ability to increase energy, vitality and to fight the negative effects of stress.
Extremely versatile, ashwagandha is a powerful adaptogen with the ability to regulate levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) and stabilize our entire hormonal system (especially the thyroid and adrenal glands). It is also the only adaptogen to have demonstrated an effect on the thyroid.
Maca is surely one of the most popular adaptogens, recommended for its ability to increase vigor, energy and libido. Maca is also a real support for the hormonal system, considered as an endocrine regulator, harmonizing the production of hormones in the body in both men and women.
Maca helps normalizing hormone levels naturally, which has string impact on the proper functioning of the body. Maca's exceptional composition makes it ideal for supporting the body, increase energy and stamina while supporting the hormonal system on a daily basis.
Adaptogens have the unique ability to improve our health by modulating the functioning of our adrenal glands in charge of our hormonal response to stress. By supporting adrenal functions, they allow our cells to access more energy, increase the resistance of our bodies and promote mental clarity.
Some adaptogens have the ability to regulate our hormone production, unbalanced by external factors (exposure to plastic and pollution, endocrine disruptors, etc...) and our sedentary lifestyles. Essential to the proper functioning of our body and to our well-being, the hormonal system is often the source of many health issues and discomfort. Integrating adaptogens into your daily routine is the best way to rebalance the body naturally.
