Make it your year of hormone balance

Wednesday, March 18, 2020

We are back into the swing of things with long to-do lists and responsibilities piled high. Life can be full on! You might need to just take a moment to ground yourself and to bring balance back into your life before you get swept off your feet.

If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed, now might be the perfect moment to focus on bringing your hormones back into balance.

What are hormones and how do they impact your health?

Hormones are the chemical messengers that tell your body how to think and feel. When unbalanced, they can impact the way you react to the ebbs and flows of life.

In particular, when you experience stress during situations like busy work weeks, juggling various roles, or doing this all with the added pressure of working on your goals and resolutions, your stress hormones directly impact everything from your mood, to your energy, your resilience, and outlook on life. So ladies, why balance your hormones? When your hormones are balanced, you feel balanced, too.

Focussing on progesterone

Low progesterone levels are a common culprit of hormone imbalance in this modern world. This can be particularly problematic as progesterone is your ‘calming hormone’ and plays a vital role in fertility, mental clarity, calmness through periods of stress.

Your body prioritises survival over reproduction, and fair enough! Both cortisol and progesterone are made from the same precursor hormone – pregnenolone. When you are stressed, the production of stress hormones to aid survival will always be prioritised over the production of sex hormones for reproduction, meaning cortisol is going to take priority over progesterone every single time.

This means that you may find your libido is particularly low during times of high stress – it’s all related to your hormones!

If you have low progesterone levels, your body will want you to know about it. Here are some ways it might be trying to spread the word:

  • Irregular periods
  • PMS
  • Feelings of worry, chronic stress or trouble sleeping
  • Fertility issues.


Nurturing progesterone

BePure ProgestoRenew is a nourishing blend of herbs and nutrients designed to support and maintain healthy progesterone levels.

Your HPA axis works to calm your 'fight or flight' response, letting your body know it is safe and can relax, and thus helping to balance your hormones.
