Eating To Balance Your Hormones
Hormones play such a big role in almost all of your systems. They affect your complexion, which you know because your skin probably spazzes out around your period. They affect your sex drive, which is also all over the place during that special time of the month. They can play a major role in your moods, causing terrible depression when they’re out of whack. If we can be entirely honest, women seem to get the brunt of the hormonal issues, too. Between having a period most of our life only to be met with menopause when that’s over (and let’s not even mention how hormones can be if you decide to be pregnant at any point), we have quite a roller coaster of a relationship with hormones. What’s the worst that happens to men? They lose a little hair or their sex drive declines? Boo-freaking-hoo. Luckily, we can gain some control over our hormones if we eat right. Here are foods to balance your hormones.
Keep protein pure
Stick to organic or farm-raised chicken, beef, and other animal sources of protein. Remember that non-organic varieties are often fed hormones, and you don’t need any surprise external sources of hormones messing up your balance.
