4 foods to balance your hormones

24th June 2022

Many people suffer from a hormonal imbalance which can result in hair loss, digestive problems, anxiety and skin problems. What you’re eating can help balance your hormones, which is why we have put together this blog to help you understand what foods could help you. 

Hormones are the chemical messenger of your body and they play a major role in controlling your appetite, skin, mood and your weight. Endocrine glands produce the precise amount of each hormone needed for different processes in the body. But many things can knock them off balance, such as lack of sleep or even too much sleep, exercise, diet, medication and stress levels.  

It’s important to remember that simply changing what you’re eating will not help magically balance your hormones, you need to make other changes to your lifestyle. However, there are many foods that contain phytonutrients and types of fibre that promote a happy hormonal harmony within your body! 

Even if you do not suffer from a hormone imbalance, it is always a good idea to add these foods to your diet!

Here are some great foods to add to your diet: 

  1. Flaxseeds

Why not try a blueberry banana flaxseed smoothie? It’s a tasty and healthy way to add Flaxseed into your diet! 

  1. Fatty Fish 

A great meal with fatty fish is baked salmon with lemon and pesto. This is perfect for a weeknight meal and is full of flavour!  

  1. Broccoli Sprouts 

You can add broccoli to any evening meal! We also like to throw it into a smoothie or even just pop it on top of some avocado on toast.

  1. Cruciferous veggies

These veggies are things such as cabbage, cauliflower, bok choy and brussels sprouts! You can add these kinds of veggies to any lunch or dinner.
