Hormonal harmony for women
Women’s health is affected by the hormones secreted at every stage of life, from menstruation to menopause. Below are some key steps to prevention to cope with these fluctuations and transitions more easily
•Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, particularly for their fibre which helps balance estrogen and progesterone levels.
•Sources of essential fatty acids, such as flaxseed, fatty fish and first press cold-pressed oils, are vital for hormonal balance.
•Avoid coffee, alcohol and refined sugar because they worsen premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and hot flashes during menopause.
