Here's how you can support the ups and downs at each stage of womanhood, from teens all the way through life.
How savvy are you when it comes to your hormone health? While we might pay attention to other aspects of our heath, from our fitness levels to our skin’s condition, hormone health isn’t talked about as often. In fact, it is essential to almost every function of our bodies. Did you know that you can regulate your hormonal activity through nutrition and exercise, and by listening to your body at every stage of your life?
While we might not think about our hormones until they come into sharp focus, such as when we are trying to conceive, or going through menopause, looking after them properly can have a huge impact on overall wellbeing, from as young as 15 years of age.
There are many factors that can impact your hormones at every life stage. Stress, sleep and eating habits can all contribute, as can over-committing to family, friends, and work, or more coffee or alcohol than usual. Hormonal imbalance can display as bouts of fatigue, hormonal skin breakouts, low mood and more.
As well as making sure to look after our health through diet, adequate rest, and finding healthy ways to deal with stress, nutritional supplements can also be a great support to keep our hormones at their optimum levels.
