Pesky Hormones! Just what are they?

Womens Hormones

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:

  • Ovaries

Unnatural Sources:

  • 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
  • Anxiousness
  • Depression
  • Emotional Outbursts
  • Reduced libido
  • Increased body fat
  • Pre-Menstural symptoms
  • Irritability
  • Menstural irregularities
  • Anger and Tension
So how do you keep these important hormones in check?
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.

    I have been taking Nu women 30 Plus for 3 weeks and I am so grateful for such a wonderful product!
    My first day of my period would usually have me writhing in pain- stomach cramps and pain that would have me in bed early with the electric blanket on high even in hot weather to try and get relief. Analgesia helped little.
    Last week has been the first time for so long that I have had no pain- no cramps , the whole day I was waiting for my usual horrible pain but none! So thank Nu women – 30 plus must be the reason. ??

      Hi Nicole. Late periods due to stress can often be caused by hormonal imbalance. We would recommend that you try 30 Plus NuWoman for a few cycles to see if it helps 🙂
