Tip #2 for hormones – More omega 3s, heathy fats, and less sugar.
Hormones are a very complex science. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be empowered to do some things on your own.
You don’t have to understand 100% of the intricacies of them. You can leave that part for your doctor.
But you can understand the basics that more omega 3s, less inflammation, and less sugar can help balance them.
So this is a basic 101 post for those just beginning on a hormone balancing journey!
👉🏻Omega 3s help with the production and function of hormones!
And remember…Your body is pretty good at making materials it needs for critical functions, but there are some substances that are essential. This means your body must get them from food. Omega 3 fatty acids is one of them.
And here’s a little tidbit about beef/dairy:
🥛Whole milk – has 183 mg of omega 3s
🥛Skim milk – has 2.5 mg of omega 3s
🐄👍🏻And grass fed beef can have up to 5 times the amount of omega 3s as conventional beef (plus more antioxidants and nutrients).
And for sugar – it causes all types of havoc on our body and hormones. 3 examples out of hundreds are given above to illustrate.
Empower yourself by taking care of your health!
