Did you know… that when your thyroid produces too many or too few hormones, it can cause imbalances that are associated with a host of symptoms. The thyroid controls the speed of every cell in the body too!

Why is this important… ?
Because your thyroid’s main job is to control the speed of your metabolism / the rate at which your body burns calories (your metabolism), plus many other functions… as listed below

The thyroid function can affect…
  • weight
  • heart rate
  • body temp
  • digestion
  • brain function
  • muscle movement
  • && much more

Iodine-rich foods help the thyroid function which plays a significant role in women’s bodily functions such as oestrogen metabolism, breast tissue development, ovulation & foetal development which is why we included Iodine rich foods in our women’s blend & caps

The thyroid gland, through the production of thyroid hormones, plays a crucial role in regulating the speed of every cell in the body. By influencing cellular metabolism, thyroid hormones impact various bodily functions, including heart rate, body temperature, and mental alertness. Maintaining a healthy thyroid function is essential for overall well-being.

Our  women’s blend & caps are specifically created to support women’s hormonal health & wellbeing.

The ingredients in our  women’s blend & caps  are different than our other blends—specifically chosen to support thyroid function. Easily absorbable foods, pre & probiotic foods & pre-digested so they can get to the cells where they are needed.

Harmonise your gut & hormones to work in sync…

Have you ever connected gut issues—bloating, gas, indigestion, constipation or diarrhoea—with your hormones? We often hear from women with poor gut function that they also have problems with PMS, endometriosis, fibroids, infertility and menopausal symptoms. Let’s connect the dots for you between healthy gut bacteria and happy hormones to support you and take your health to the next level.

The spotlight is on the microbiome—the population of bacteria in and on the body with about 1.5kg in the gut alone. Every day more is known about the benefits of gut bacteria—from helping to digest food and eliminate waste, producing nutrients such as Vitamin B and K, neutralising toxins and preventing disease causing bacteria from entering the bloodstream. There is so much hope and solid science in these little bugs to transform our health and our hormones.

But have you heard of the ‘estro-bolome’? This is an amazingly powerful group of bacteria producing enzymes in the gut that metabolise and eliminate estrogen. All of us, every woman, can benefit from knowing that good gut bugs help eliminate excess estrogens from the body and therefore balance hormones. Estrogen dominance as a result of poor gut health is implicated in just about every hormonal symptom that you can think of—heavy bleeding, cramps, low libido, PMS, infertility … are we ringing any bells?

Dr Raphael Kellerman, author of The Microbiome Diet, explains that for so many years women have been misdiagnosed by their doctors. Have you had the experience of asking your doctor for help with your hormones but still have unexplained symptoms like …

  • Bloating and gas
  • Fatigue
  • Moodiness
  • Foggy head and headaches
  • Difficulty losing weight
  • Sugar cravings
  • Frequent illness from colds to yeast infections
  • Acne

Now there might be a very good reason why you’re struggling with weight gain, cravings, and never feeling really satisfied after meals, hunting down sugar. Your gut bacteria can actually dictate what foods you crave and how your body utilises fats and carbs. Change the way you eat and live and you change your populations of good and bad bacteria. A bit more sugar and bread here, a few more glasses of wine and cups of coffee there, a course of antibiotics and we are on the slippery slope of ‘dysbiosis’. And of course the reverse is true. The body and it’s inner ecosystem of bacteria, naturally want to head towards healthy. So with each mouthful, each meal we can feed the microbiome—bacteria respond rapidly to our love and care.

Let’s start helping our hormones …

  1. Cut the crap—sorry but that’s what it is, sugar, processed foods, damaged fats, gluten, dairy, artificial sweeteners, GMO and food additives.
  2. Go organic—as much as you can—with whatever goes into or on your body. Xenoestrogens (foreign estrogens) from pesticides in food, chemicals in personal care products and unfiltered water kill good bacteria and lead to estrogen dominance and toxicity.
  3. Support and soothe, repair and restore the gut with whole unprocessed clean food that works hand in hand with fermented foods like sauerkraut and kimchi and wholefood based probiotics.
  4. Use nutrients that can reduce gut inflammation—zinc, glutamine, essential fatty acids, antioxidants and soothing herbs.

Our Women Blend & Women Capsules contains many unique FOODS and HERBS including queen garnet plum, goji berries, dandelion root, broccoli, cinnamon recognised for their hormone balancing effect. These foods have been exposed to a mother culture of organic bacteria, breaking them down to release nutrition to the cells. Because Probiotic Foods for Women is a naturally fermented whole food product that contains multiple strains of beneficial bacteria, it is suitable for all women at any age and stage of the hormonal rollercoaster.

“20% of your thyroid production is dependent on healthy bacteria in your gut. Most of us are chronically low in good, protective bacteria and need more. You know the usual reasons—our overuse of antibiotics, our tendency toward too much stress.”Dr. Sara Gottfried
