In women, the sex hormones estrogen and progesterone are responsible for sex characteristics and the regulations of the menstrual cycle. But as women age, the level of these hormones declines, causing symptoms like vaginal dryness, hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, low sex drive, bone loss, weight gain, slow metabolism, sleep disturbance, and menstrual irregularities.
In some women, these symptoms can be so severe that it interferes with their quality of life. Some women choose to seek medical attention, where hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is prescribed to alleviate their symptoms. But hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is not for everyone, especially women with a family history of breast or cervical cancers, or those with hormone receptor-positive proteins.
Many women prefer to use natural alternatives to increase their hormones and taking supplements could help them achieve that goal. Here are some of the natural options that women can use to boost hormone production in the body:
Natural substances that are known to increase hormone production in women:
- Foods containing soybean products
- Flax seeds
- B vitamins
- Vitamin D
- Black cohosh
- Evening primrose
All of these have been shown to help the body deal with the symptoms of declining hormones. Symptoms like waking up at 3 am and not being able to fall back asleep can also be alleviated, when these products are combined with adaptogenic herbs like ashwagandha, astragalus, and maca roots to support the adrenal glands.
One product that has been found to be ideal to support the body throughout periods of naturally occurring hormonal imbalances is called S-Tro.
This is a special, one-of-a-kind supplement made by CellCore Biosciences, the only company known to use carbon nanotechnology in their supplements to make them highly absorbable in the gut, and with the ability to efficiently deliver nutrients to cells.
