Hormones are chemical messengers that travel in your bloodstream to carry out specific functions within the body. Examples of hormones include estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, oxytocin, etc. The foods that we eat have quite the influence of how balanced our hormones can be, and the body works hard to stay balanced, which is called homeostasis. If we have an imbalance, our hormones work hard to correct it, along with other bodily processes. Our skin appreciates balanced hormones as well, and skin health starts with nutrition! Consuming an overall diet that is full of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, protein, and healthy fats is always the best for your hormones. There are some specific nutrients to focus on when balancing hormones, some including zinc, vitamin D, and vitamin B6! A daily serving of Beauty Fusion can be a great way to fill in the gaps of these important nutrients when paired with a healthy eating pattern. Let’s dive into how these powerful ingredients can support optimal hormone health!
One of the ingredients, Zinc, can help with improved hypothalamus function. The hypothalamus is in the brain and its main function is to keep the body balanced! Zinc is also a super star when it comes to ovulation. Encourage women who are trying to conceive, who are diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) or who just want focus on better period health, to consume foods high in zinc is important.
Examples of food sources include chicken, fish, beef, oysters, beans, and fortified breakfast cereals.
Did you know that vitamin D is a hormone? It is a steroid hormone that helps the body with producing more hormones! Consuming adequate vitamin D may also help with reducing insulin resistance and may help with fertility in women (1). It also helps with improving bone health and absorbing calcium!
The best source is from the sun, but food sources include milk, cheese, yogurt, egg yolks, and fish.
Vitamin B6 is one of the Rockstar vitamins to focus on when it comes to PMS, period cramps and thyroid health (2). It may also help with the production of progesterone and help the liver detoxify estrogen. It is also important for proper thyroid function because it works with iodine to help produce thyroid hormone! Food sources rich in vitamin B6 include fortified grains, beef, fish, poultry, and chickpeas.
Vitamin C & E:
Vitamins C and E are powerful antioxidants that have been found to reduce inflammation. Any reduction in stress throughout the body can help improve both your physical and mental health. Sources of vitamin C include citrus fruits, bell peppers, strawberries, blueberries, cruciferous vegetables, and tomatoes, which are packed in Beauty Fusion products. Some sources of vitamin E include sunflower seeds, almonds, peanut butter, and pumpkin!
Another powerful ingredient in the Beauty Fusion Blend is Coenzyme CoQ10. This acts as an antioxidant that help reduce inflammation.
