Vitamin C and Healing Your Hormones

Vitamin C and Healing Your Hormones

Being a woman is hard. It’s plain and simple, well it’s actually much more complicated than that. However, if you’re a woman reading this...then you can agree how challenging and complex it is to be a female.

To make matters even more complicated, our hormones can dictate us. Even if we want to be all “peachy” and optimistic sometimes we just can’t. I understand this first hand. As someone who had hormone imbalance. To the point I was put on FIVE medications for it and STILL feeling awful. Not to mention, I had terrible side effects of my hair falling out, irregular cycles, insomnia and anxiety/depression. So when I say, I understand how you feel. I truly do. I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). 

On the upside, I’ve returned to my peachy self and chucked all medications to the side. One beneficial component I found to be helpful was vitamin C. Vitamin C is known to help with immune support and fight free radicals.

This, you might already be familiar with. But did you know that vitamin C can help to balance out hormones? Let me explain for you and keep it simple. 

The hormone progesterone is important in regard to properly functioning as a female. If you’re low in progesterone you might be suffering from infertility, low libidio, poor sleep, anxiety and mood swings. 

Factors like PCOS, high stress and hypothyroidism are just a few of the ways that progesterone might become low. 

In short, we have incredible, natural resources that can support and help heal our bodies. 

Vitamin C can be a wonderful addition.

For starters, try adding more vitamin c rich foods into the diet. Citrus foods, strawberries, winter squash, bell peppers, spinach, brussels sprouts and cabbage are wonderful options. 

Another way to ensure you’re receiving enough vitamin C, is through a capsule of 1,000 mg daily. 

Hormonal imbalances takes toolkit of lifestyle & nutrition, but it can be simple!
