The balancing of hormones is a dance of the mind and body, where both
influence the other to make more or less of specific hormones depending
on the moment. By keeping them in balance we are able to balance our
emotions, reactions and physical responses to life. The herbs we have
specifically chosen for this tea offer the benefits of:
Ashwagandha Root supports the pathways in the brain that are
responsible for producing and administering hormones in your body. One
of the ways it helps, is to normalize blood levels of cortisol and
thyroid hormones allowing better stress management. It’s a general tonic
for reproductive health as well that may benefit both estrogen and
Black Cohosh Root supports healthy estrogen levels not by
providing estrogen but by improving brain-organ communication and
modulating cell receptors. Black cohosh is an excellent herb to balance
female hormones because it is a phytoestrogen, which can help to lower
elevated estrogen or raise low estrogen
Chaste Tree Berries might work as a hormone balancer by
targeting the hormones progesterone and prolactin, balancing the
pituitary gland and the hypothalamus. By regulating the pituitary it has
an effect on the function of the other glands involved in this system.
The pituitary sends out the signal to the other glands to tell them when
and how much hormone to produce.
Dandelion Root benefits the reproductive system (male and
female) by helping to regulate hormone production. It plays a
significant role in the detoxification of the body, which plays a
crucial role in detoxifying excess hormones in the body.
Dong Quai Root is commonly used to balance hormone excesses
and deficits. It has been used for centuries as an herb to balance
female hormones and has been shown to balance levels of estrogen.
Fenugreek Seed contains compounds called furostanolic
saponins, which are believed to increase testosterone production and
symptoms related to low testosterone such as low libido. Fenugreek seeds
are believed to have an estrogenic effect as well with a phytoestrogen
Holy Basil Leaf helps reduce the biochemical developments of
stress by balancing cortisol levels. Specifically, too much cortisol
affects the thyroid gland, ovaries and pancreas, so Holy Basil is able
to impact the functioning of these glands secondarily. It may also
impact the secretion of neurotransmitters in the brain, such as
serotonin and dopamine, which help regulate mood and mental well-being.
Raspberry Leaf is a nutrient dense power packed herb that is a
rich source of vitamins and minerals particularly vitamin C. It has
been known to help increase fertility in both men and women, and is a
common herb to balance female hormones.
Saw Palmetto Berry is primarily used as a tonic herb for men
but it has a nourishing effect on the female reproductive system. Saw
palmetto works by decreasing the enzyme activity that is responsible for
converting testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which in turn
helps preserve testosterone levels in the body.
