Maca & Ashwaganda
Our hormones are the messengers that direct everything our bodies need to do to stay alive. They are constantly working, sometimes more busily than other times. As we age, hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone can naturally decline, which can have a significant impact on our health.
However, when it comes to our survival hormone, cortisol, our bodies will find the energy to create it no matter what. This means that cortisol often takes most of the nutrients, leaving little for other hormones. Therefore, it’s crucial that we focus on adding foods that nourish cortisol, which will also nourish other hormones.
If you research the signs and symptoms of deficient progesterone, estrogen, or testosterone, you will find that they often lead to similar health concerns. It’s essential to add nutrient-dense foods to our diet to nourish cortisol and address the root cause of any hormonal imbalances.
In addition to nourishing our bodies with the right foods, it’s essential to resolve the underlying issues that keep us up at night, cause us to sweat, or leave us tired. By addressing the root problem, we can help our bodies balance hormones naturally and maintain overall health and wellness.
Hormones play a critical role in our overall health and wellbeing. By focusing on nourishing cortisol and resolving any underlying issues that may be impacting our hormones, we can maintain a healthy balance and live our best lives. So let’s take care of our hormones, and in turn, they will take care of us.

Many health powders have a lot of ingredients, but I find it may be too much. Your body has unique nutritional needs, and excess just goes to waste. Some are water soluble so they flush out but some can cause the liver to work harder.
