The top three herbs for balancing your hormones!
This week we'll be taking a look at some herbs that are both adaptogenic and hormone-balancing. An herb identified as adaptogenic holds some pharmaceutical qualities. Some work by releasing stress in the body, while others provide immune support.
Heavily touted as a medicinal herb, Ashwagandha root is a great source for quelling many issues. Most notably sleep disturbance and anxiety. The herb works to reduce stress and anxious feelings by restraining the brain’s hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.
Black Cohosh Root
Black cohosh has also become a ubiquitous tool for women, especially those who experience extreme menopausal symptoms. Because of its innate ability to increase estrogen production.
Black cohosh has also been utilized to support women through premenstrual syndrome and menstruation issues.
Scientists who have studied red clover have found that it contains plant-based chemicals called isoflavones, that mimic estrogen-like effects. In theory, the isoflavones within the red clover could be used to treat common hormonal symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes.
