Our quick and easy list of the foods we LOVE to eat everyday that help promote balanced hormones for men and women!
Super Foods to Get Today for Hormone Balance
Hemp Seeds - Hemp seeds are full of different minerals including iron, magnesium, zinc, calcium, and phosphorous. As well as amino acids, edible oils, healthy fats, and gamma linoleic acid (GLA), which is a natural hormone regulator. They are actually great for all body functions! *I add Hemp Seeds to my salads, pastas, and especially our Friday night pizza!!
Turmeric - Helps to detox the liver which will help to regulate your hormone levels. *I love making my own "mac'n'cheese" which I add loads of turmeric for the golden color it offers.
Ginger - Increases blood flow to reproductive organs for both men and women. It not only balances hormones but also stimulates libido. *We keep Ginger tea on hand for an after dinner, before bed time drink.
Brazil Nuts - High in Selenium - which plays a key role in thyroid and autoimmune health, it protects thyroid cells from oxidative damage. *Because we are always eating on the go, we love the ease of Brazil Nuts (or any nuts). And they are the choice food for Blue Macaws - thanks to the movie Rio for teaching us that.
Goji Berries - Are nutrient dense and provide positive effects on hormones for men and women. *Dried Goji berries are a quick and easy snack, you can even add them to a homemade trail mix with Brazil Nuts!
Avocado - Eat avocados every day to balance your hormones. *My daughter eats avocados like apples, peel and eat.
Salmon - Full of Omega-3 fatty acids, salmon is great for hormonal function. *We love Salmon for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So easy to make a meal around Salmon.
