Did you know that your overall health and hormonal balance can be supported with basic diet and lifestyle shifts? A healthy gut microbiome helps keep your estrogen levels balanced. An unhealthy gut can lead to estrogen dominance in both women and men causing a variety of symptoms.
Women, do you have any of the following symptoms?
irregular menstrual cycle
Men, do you have any of the following symptoms?
low sperm count
Your liver plays a very important role in the regulation of estrogen. You can support your liver by eating more cruciferous vegetables, reduce body fat, foster a healthy gut microbiome and by engaging in regular physical activity.
Here are 4 simple and immediate ways that you can begin to support your gut microbiome and optimize your hormone health:
Eat for improved gut function. Consume a diet high in vegetable fiber.
Decrease exposure to xenoestrogens (estrogen-like chemicals that influence estrogen function) most commonly found in plastics and fragrances.
Reduce refined sugar. Too much sugar can shift your hormone balance.
Eat foods that support your liver by adding cruciferous vegetables and limit alcohol intake.
