At our recent event in Nashville, Hormones and Gut Health was a hot topic. For those of you who couldn’t make it (or those who need a refresher), let’s look at the role that your gut plays in your hormones and overall health.
Your Gut and Your Hormones
Your gut plays a major role in your overall health. Your gut helps with digestion, nutrient absorption, waste elimination, (and for women’s sake) is the pathway to your vagina.
Your gut is a microbiome with trillions of organisms living in it. These microscopic organisms are called gut flora, which need to be kept healthy so you can experience optimal health. While gut flora have multiple functions in our physical and mental health, one thing they do is regulate your hormones. If the bad bacteria outweighs the good, your gut enters what is called dysbiosis and your hormones could go off balance. This can lead to mood swings, loss of energy, food cravings, and many other hormonal issues.
Probiotics Role In Your Hormones
Taking a probiotic is one of the first steps women should take when trying to improve their gut health and balance their hormones. Taking a probiotics can do amazing things for a women, including:
- Decrease stress hormones
- Boost energy
- Promote sleep,
- Prevent overeating, and
- Balance overall mood.
If you are trying to get pregnant (or already are), a probiotic is a great supplement addition not sure for you, but for the baby. The gut of your future child is actually created in utero (when it is a fetus). That’s pretty amazing! By maintaining a healthy diet, and adding in probiotics, you can help create a healthy gut for your baby.
