To Bal­ance Your HOR­MONES

Women's Weekly (Malaysia) - - Wellbeing -

Hor­mones are chem­i­cal mes­sen­gers that help to con­trol dif­fer­ent body func­tions. When our hor­mones are out of bal­ance, it can lead to painful pe­ri­ods and fer­til­ity is­sues.

The body detox­i­fies many of our hor­mones through the liver, where they get passed into the bowel, ready for ex­cre­tion. If there is in­suf­fi­cient fi­bre in your diet, those hor­mones get re­ab­sorbed by the body and cause hor­monal ex­cesses.

“Nu­tri­ents are used as build­ing blocks for hor­mones and boost their me­tab­o­lism,” says natur­opath Kather­ine Maslen, author of Get Well,StayWell. “Juices – and par­tic­u­larly smooth­ies – can help you get a con­cen­trated dose of these nu­tri­ents in an easy-to-ab­sorb medium, help the elim­i­na­tion path­ways work more ef­fec­tively and aid the re­moval of ex­cess hor­mones in the body.”
