Hormones Must-Knows For Women In Their 20’s
We girls blame our hormones for everything – PMS, breakouts, bloating, mood swings. But, really, they are our BFFs once you get them to behave. Here is a women hormones health guide to help you become a blissful, balanced goddess.
Dopamine & Serotonin
Dopamine & serotonin are your ‘feel good’ best friends. Visit them more by grooving to your fav music, hitting the gym or starting a steamy session in the sack. And the reason we like cupcakes when feeling low – carbs boost serotonin.
PMS is not a given! It’s just a symptom caused by an imbalance in estrogen & progesterone levels. Healthy changes in diet like clean protein, antioxidant-rich vegetables, etc. can restore this balance for you. Yes, girls, it means no more mood swings, acne & cramps before periods!
Bloating is not innocent. Not pooping for a week or feeling bloated after meals are not simple indigestion but a sign of inefficient nutrient absorption & toxin elimination, which can create hormonal imbalance too. Make sure you take timely care of it!
Yes, your period schedule can affect your workout owing to the hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle. As women hormones fluctuate, your metabolism, mood and energy levels will also change. So, don’t be so hard on yourself if you don’t feel like doing 50 crunches every single day!
Fats are the delivery boys of our hormones. Before you become addicted to an egg-white only omelette or low-fat alternatives, know that fat isn’t an absolute enemy. Just eat moderately, without guilt!
