To begin with, what are hormones and why do they play such an important role?
In our body, hormones function as chemical messengers, which allow one part of the body to communicate with another, so the body operates in synchronous harmony. Collectively, the hormones and the glands they release are known as the endocrine system. There are glands throughout the body. The release of hormones by certain glands allows them to travel to the bloodstream and control the function of other organs. The body creates a loop when it gives and receives feedback.
In terms of their functionality, what exactly do hormones control?
Well, that’s pretty much your entire day!
What causes hormonal imbalance?
Levels of hormones naturally fluctuate depending on various factors. Hormones can also become imbalanced throughout various stages of life. Some of the major significant causes are stress related routines, lack of exercise and movement, irregular sleep patterns and unhealthy eating habits. Chronic illnesses are sometimes the result of these imbalances.
How does Hemp play a role in treating hormonal imbalance?
Combats stress and anxiety
Hemp seeds are rich in amino acids, magnesium, and B-vitamins which can lessen the effects of stress naturally. Amino acids are responsible for building proteins and give energy to the body. Our bodies end up producing excessive stress hormones if they lack enough amino acids. Likewise, B-vitamins help regulate stress hormones in our bodies, which are essential for maintaining balance. Magnesium supports neurotransmitter function by reducing anxiety and stress.
Aids in reproductive health for women
GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) found in hemp seeds relieve symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome and menopausal problems. During menopause, many women suffer from mood swings and lose the benefits of estrogen. GLA contains minerals like iron, magnesium, and zinc, which can help with menopause and PMS symptoms including irritability, cramps, and fluid retention. These minerals in hemp seeds play a prominent role in promoting female health.
Improves digestive health
Hemp seeds contain a good source of soluble and insoluble fiber that speed up the movement of food through the digestive tract. Fiber naturally flushes out toxins in the colon and cleans it. Furthermore, it provides your gut with probiotics that will help you maintain a healthy intestinal flora and boost your immune system.
Our key takeaway
Hormones play a role in every aspect of your life. Your body functions optimally when you have a balanced lifestyle overall. Consuming nutritious foods, exercising regularly, and making healthy lifestyle choices go a long way towards improving your hormonal health.
