You already know that what you eat makes a difference in your overall health. But did you know that it has an impact on your reproductive hormones, too?
The eight foods below improve hormone balance and help strengthen your body - make sure you're including all of them in your diet!
Eight foods to help balance your hormones
#1: Fresh produce
Vegetables are teeming with essential nutrients including folate, vitamin B6 and methionine. They’re also full of antioxidants, fibre and phytonutrients – the protective chemicals found in plants – which are all critical to healthy hormones.
Fruits are also full of nutrients, but are also high in natural sugars, so make sure to eat no more than two servings per day. It’s also important that you eat organic produce only to avoid hormone-disrupting pesticides.
#2: Fermented foods
Fermented foods like fermented vegetables, sauerkraut, tempeh and miso provide a dose of beneficial bacteria for your gut. Eating fibre-rich foods every day will feed these health-boosting organisms.
Imagine your body starts to sort out its health problems on its own!

#3: Green tea
A hot cup of green tea is the perfect morning beverage, as it’s proven to reduce oestrogen production.
Fish is abundant in a fat
known as omega-3 fatty acids. This fat
helps balance hormone levels, improve fertility and reduce inflammation. Try adding sardines or wild salmon to your diet two or three days per week to increase your omega-3 intake.
#5: Cruciferous vegetables
Cruciferous vegetables like kale, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, arugula and radishes are rich in glucosinolates, which promote healthy oestrogen metabolism.
Eating protein every day is essential to your oestrogen metabolism and overall health. Aim to eat 1 g of protein per 1 kg of body weight every day. For example: One cup of beans packs approximately 15 g protein, while an 85 g fillet of salmon provides 20 g.
Lignans, found in sesame seeds, flaxseed, berries and some other foods, contain phytoestrogens, which your body uses to shift your oestrogen metabolism to healthier metabolites. Ground flaxseed powder is delicious in smoothies and other morning meals.
Mushrooms (all varieties) are praised for their ability to reduce oestrogen production. Enjoy them raw or sautéed.
