Happy gut, happy hormones!
How much do you know about what’s going in your gut?
We have millions of microbes there, including bacteria, viruses and fungi. All of them have a good and bad element and they have an impact on our physical and mental health.
Our gut health, far from being something to be forgotten about, has a major impact on our hormone health.
That means that the gut microbiome, the collection of microbes, including bacteria, in our large intestine, has an effect on how you feel throughout your menstrual cycle.
Interesting, isn’t it?
The gut microbiome is connected to the estrobolome, the collection of bacteria that helps us metabolise estrogen. Or in a nutshell: good gut health can support good hormone health.
So how do you improve the health of your gut?
Eat more vegetables!
Fibrous vegetables and fruit support gut health, as do fermented food and drink, such as sauerkraut, kombucha, kefir, kimchi and picked vegetables.
