Why I Turned to Hormone Balancing Superfoods

Three years ago I found out I have Hypothyroidism. Ever since I have been trying to figure out the best hormone balancing superfoods to help balance hormones naturally. I discovered the Hypothyroidism when we first met with our Fertility Doctor. She immediately put me on Levothyroxine to manage it. And, I began researching more about hormones and how they could affect Hypothyroidism, my fertility, and my chances of IVF being successful.

I discovered that there are many hormone balancing superfoods out there that are delicious and could help me with any hormone imbalance I might have. Immediately, I began eating one or two Brazil Nuts everyday, because they offer a day’s worth of Selenium to support my Thyroid. I also found these other hormone balancing foods that just happened to combine into the perfect breakfast! These foods together create the perfect balance of Healthy Fats, Fiber and Protein. This combo reduces insulin and stress hormone spikes that can overload our adrenals, and in turn support healthy hormone levels throughout the body.

Hormone Balancing Foods that Balance Hormones

Hormone Balancing Superfoods

  1. Oatmeal – Oats are not only packed full of insulin regulating Fiber and Protein, but they contain many other nutrients like vitamin E, zinc, selenium, copper, iron, manganese, and magnesium. Oats may help reduce your risk of cancer, lower cholesterol and fight heart disease. I really like Better Oats because of the quality, price, and they have 100 calorie packets, but any instant oatmeal will do for this recipe.
  2. Flaxseed Meal – Flax Seed has long been touted as an incredible hormone balancing superfood. Flax Seeds are full of lignans. Lignans bind to excess estrogens in the body ensuring they get passed through the digestive system rather than absorbed. Excess estrogen can cause worsened PMS, breast lumps, and even increase chances of breast cancer. They are a fantastic source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Flax Seeds also contain a good amount of Fiber and Protein to improve digestion, help regulate blood sugar and cholesterol, and increase feelings of fullness.
  3. Chia Seeds – Like Flax Seeds, Chia Seeds contain Omega-3 fatty acids, which are the main proponent in hormone synthesis. These power seeds are great for controlling hormonal issues such as insulin sensitivity, metabolic syndrome, irregular periods, acne, and mood swings. They are chock full of fiber and protein, and also expand in your stomach to increase feelings of fullness.
  4. Ceylon Cinnamon – Ceylon Cinnamon, or “True Cinnamon”,  is chock full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Just 1/2 – 1 tsp per day may help decrease AMH levels in PCOS patients, regulate menstrual cycles, and lower blood sugar and insulin levels.
  5. Collagen Peptides – I added collagen to this recipe mainly to increase the protein content. Protein decreases levels of the “hunger hormone” ghrelin and stimulates the production of hormones that help you feel full. These hormones help prevent insulin and cortisol spikes. Collagen is touted for its anti-aging benefits. But, the amino acids in collagen help our bodies produce healthy levels of hormones. Collagen supports the thyroid and helps offset cortisol (stress hormone) levels. Also, Collagen helps your liver process and eliminate toxins and hormone disruptors in the body. I prefer Vital Proteins Collagen.
  6. Peanut Butter (or any Nut Butter) – When you combine protein with healthy fats, it is the perfect combination to keep insulin and cortisol levels from spiking and keep your body feeling full and satisfied. Magnesium and arginine in nuts can help reduce oxidative stress, blood pressure, and inflammation. Another study found that when you combine nuts with carbohydrate-rich foods, it helps regulate the glycemic response caused by carbs. I prefer an Organic Peanut Butter without added sugar or Palm Oil. The only ingredient in Peanut Butter should be “Peanuts”.
  7. Fresh Berries – Fresh berries are full of vitamin c, antioxidants and fiber, all of which regulate hormone levels in the body.

*Tip: For an added protein and hormone balancing boost, add 1/2-1 scoop of whey or bone broth protein powder. I prefer Julian Bakery or Ancient Nutrition Protein Powders.

All of these foods are also pregnancy superfoods! So, whether you are pregnant, have Hypothyroidism, Hyperthyroidism, are going through Menopause, or suffering good old PMS, this hormone balancing oatmeal recipe is a lifesaver. And, not only is this oatmeal delicious, it will help keep you satisfied and feeling full for hours. This oatmeal recipe has many weight loss benefits as well. Enjoy!
