Just what are hormones, and how do they effect us so much? Here is a quick low down on Oestrogen and Progesterone, two very important hormones!
Oestrogen and progesterone
Naturally Produced by:
- The Pill,
- Synthetics in food and drinks (BPA),
- Prolonged Stress
These two are big in the game when it comes to mood swings, irritability and emotional outbursts!
You can think of these as the two sides of a seesaw. As your body produces more Oestrogen, it produces less Progesterone, and vice versa. Too much of either, means too little of the other and thus leads to a hormonal imbalance.
Keeping these two hormones in balance is vital to a healthy, happy life. It is necessary for the two hormones to fluctuate, but large imbalances can cause some nasty symptoms such as:
- Mood Swings
- Emotional Outbursts
- Reduced libido
- Increased body fat
- Pre-Menstural symptoms
- Menstural irregularities
- Anger and Tension
Obviously avoiding the synthetic forms of these hormones would work, but unfortunately is just not practical in most cases. Avoiding BPA is one thing, but not taking the pill and avoiding stress is sometimes just not possible.
We suggest a healthy diet, regular exercise and a hormone support supplement such as 30 Plus NuWoman. 30 Plus NuWoman is made from natural ingredients and helps the body regulate Oestrogen and Progesterone levels. How you ask? Check out the ingredients and their functions here.
