7 Simple Things You Can Do to Improve Hormone HealthHey hormones!

In celebration of our latest announcement- that we’re going to be talking a LOT more hormones, I want to give you a little teaser of some major topics we’ll be covering coming up.

So to kick it off… here’s 7 simple things you can do to improve hormone health.

1. Drink more water: Cortisol may be elevated form not drinking enough!

2. Eat every 3-4 hours: It’s key for proper blood sugar control and insulin control

3. Include more zinc:  It’s important for healthy thyroid hormone production (T3 and T4!)

4. Drink fewer caffeinated beverages: Too much can zap the adrenals- and because caffeine can concurrently increase cortisol and insulin release.

5. Eat more tryptophan foods: Like chocolate (yippee!), eggs, oats, almonds, pineapple; they may help promote production of serotonin that’s a precursors to melatonin – helpful for sleep!

6. Increase dopamine by eating more tyrosine foods: Like bananas, avocados, eggs, almonds, beans. Dopamine is the feel good hormone that we love so much.

7. Hey dudes include more of these foods for healthy testosterone: Cruciferous veggies, oysters, oranges, pomegranate, eggs. Don’t forget to de-stress, exercise and get enough sleep- it helps too.

Ps… Why did I choose this photo as the header?? Because eggs are one of natures BEST superfoods and contain so many KEY hormone-balancing components!
