Herbs for Women's Hormonal Health

 

Hormones are chemical messengers produced by the endocrine glands. These glands constitute a system known as the endocrine system, which regulates:

  • Growth and metabolism
  • Sexual function
  • Reproduction
  • Heart rate and blood pressure
  • Appetite
  • Sleeping and waking cycles
  • Body temperature

Hormones can change like seasons and sometimes, depending on many different aspects, they can become unbalanced. Stress, nutrition, pollution and age can affect our bodies and create hormonal imbalance's. As women we also feel this imbalance. From early teens to mature adults our rhythm follows a pattern, much like the moon, and when circumstances affect this rhythm we feel the imbalance more. Unlike men, women tend to undergo extreme hormonal fluctuations due to a variety of factors. These include menstrual cycles, pregnancy, menopause, breastfeeding, and the use of birth control pills.

 

Feminine balance is a herbal tea designed to help regulate hormone levels which in turn will allow your body to work better as a whole. When every part of our bodies systems are woking together we feel better and display less symptoms like fatigue, head aches, muscle pain, bloating and brain fog just to name a few.

Nettle is a power house herb that is widely known for its hormone-balancing effects. Many studies show that it helps balance the levels of estrogen, thyroid hormones, and testosterone.

Yarrow contains compounds that mimic hormones and help regulate the menstrual cycle. It also reduces heavy bleeding and relieves cramps.

Oatstraw strengthens the blood, stabilizes moods, strengthens digestion, and balances the endocrine system (hormone producing glands).

Vitex, or chaste tree berry, is often taken as a remedy for women's health problems. Vitex is known to increase levels of progesterone which is a hormone known to play a role in regulating the menstural cycle.

 Along with all of the listed herbs used directly for female hormones this tea also has a selection of herbs to help with anxiety, digestion and overall well-being. If used daily it can help harmonize the body and relieve stress on the endocrine system.
