Women of all ages experience baffling and frustrating hormone imbalances that send them searching for some help to alleviate their unease. Younger women often experience heavy, painful periods, and next-level PMS, while older women may experience hormone fluctuations due to the onset of perimenopause or menopause. These hormonal imbalances make women feel hopeless. Don’t lose hope yet, as there are ways to help alleviate some of these symptoms naturally or with a bit of help from a fantastic assortment of women’s supplements designed for women by women to target specific areas of need.
First, diet, exercise, and sleep are key for almost all hormone issues. Symptoms will be more acute if you consume too much sugar or carbohydrates, sleep poorly, and don’t get enough exercise. As with all things, balance is essential; ensuring your calorie intake is nutrient-rich and combining proteins with healthy fats is a step in the right direction. Drinking too much alcohol − especially within three hours of sleep − should be avoided, especially for women undergoing perimenopause or menopause. Less alcohol means fewer hot flashes and night sweats. Exercise, even a nice evening walk, will also help you lose unwanted weight, reduce stress levels, and improve your sleep.
In order to enhance our hormonal health, we should all consider lowering our xenoestrogen intake by looking closely at the ingredients in our household cleaning products and, most importantly, our beauty products. From the moisturizer we put on our skin daily to our shampoo and body wash, finding paraben-free products is one way we can work to balance our hormones. More products are manufactured without harmful chemicals these days, and many labels will say they are paraben-free.
Occasionally, we look to great products to give us a hand with hormone issues. This is when WomenSense® enters the picture. WomenSense is a line of products dedicated to helping women reach their full health potential. Each product is carefully formulated to suit the specific needs of adult women through various changes in life, ranging from mental or physical stress to changes in hormones with age.
AdrenaSense® is a natural formula containing adaptogens to nourish and support adrenal health. Adrenal fatigue is becoming more common in our overscheduled, busy world. AdrenaSense can help increase energy levels, improve “brain fog,” and regulate moods.
MenoSense® is formulated to support women during menopause. Although 80% of women experience symptoms of menopause, most suffer in silence. MenoSense can help reduce hot ﬂashes, night sweats, and other symptoms such as irritability and memory issues.
EstroSense® is a completely natural formula to support healthy estrogen metabolism and balance. An overabundance of estrogen in relation to progesterone, known as estrogen dominance, is widespread in modern life. Increased PMS, painful and heavy periods, and hormonal acne are all symptoms of estrogen dominance. Many xenoestrogens in the environment, cosmetics, and household cleaners mimic natural estrogen and cause hormone imbalance. This formulation offers detoxification support and protection for the liver and is an antioxidant that can help regulate estrogen levels.
ThyroSense® is a balanced nutritional and herbal formula to support thyroid health. Women with low thyroid are often unaware of it. There are a variety of symptoms, including fatigue, weight gain, depression, headaches, and more.
ThyroSense supports thyroid health and helps the body metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.
All WomenSense products are free of common allergens and GMOs.
