Hormone Loving Seed Bites
When it comes to snacks that your hormones love you can not go past a delicious fudgey bite full of seeds.
Why are seeds so amazing for your hormones?! Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc which is a mineral crucial for hormone health, it also plays a role in helping to keep your skin and immune system in tip top shape.
Flaxseed helps to get rid of estrogen the hormone that causes all those pesky symptoms such as bloating, irregular periods, weight gain and acne. It is unique in that the estrogen binds to the flaxseed and it is exited through the body via the digestive system.
Aim to have seeds every day to help your hormones, they are also full of omega fatty acids and fibre which is key to happy hormones.
