If you've been experiencing symptoms of a hormone imbalance such as fatigue, trouble sleeping, low libido, stubborn weight, appetite changes, or PMS making changes to your diet can actually help a lot.


One of my favourite parts of working with clients inside the Nourish To Thrive program is helping them to learn what foods to include to support hormone balance so they can boost their natural energy levels, reach their weight loss goals, and ditch all the other unwanted symptoms that go along with hormone imbalances.


Hormone Balancing Superfoods:


1. Avocado Oil

Avocado oil is a good source of healthy fats which are needed to support stable blood sugar levels which are essential for hormone health - making them a great superfood for hormone balance. Avocado oil is great for those meals requiring higher temperatures to cook.


2. Apple Cider Vinegar (Unfiltered):

Has many health benefits including supporting stable blood sugar and digestion. Since apple cider vinegar is fermented, it's amazing for your gut bacteria which in turn can support healthy hormones. Try adding apple cider vinegar into your homemade salad dressings for added vitamins, iron, antioxidants, digestive enzymes, and prebiotics.



Superfoods for hormone balance

3. Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are high in protein which is needed to support hormone balance. They are also loaded with fibre which aids in estrogen metabolism and overall digestion.


4. Flaxseeds

Flax seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fibre, and magnesium which will help regulate blood sugar. Flax seeds contain compounds called lignans that work to reduce excess estrogen in the body. If you struggle with symptoms of estrogen dominance or constipation you should definitely be including flax seeds with your meals.


5. Brazil Nuts

Brazil nuts are rich in selenium which acts as a catalyst for the production of active thyroid hormones. Including just 3 brazil nuts per day will ensure you get the required daily amount of this mineral to support hormone balancing. It's also high in antioxidants.


6. Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc which helps support progesterone production. They are high in protein, iron, and magnesium as well and have been found to be beneficial for balancing hormones, improving digestion, and supporting healthy immune function.
