Women can experience hormonal imbalances at any age, yet symptoms can be the most pronounced during the late twenties to forties. In addition, many women experience these symptoms each month during the pre-menstrual stage of the menstrual cycle.
In each case, symptoms of a hormonal imbalance can range from any of the following:
Allergies, Anxiety, Brain Fog, Diminished Sex Drive, Depression, Dizziness, Endometriosis, Facial Hair Growth, Fatigue, Fibrocystic Breasts, Hair Loss, Headaches, Low Sex Drive, Osteoporosis, PMS, Skin Problems, Urinary Tract Infections And Incontinence, Uterine Fibroids, Weight Gain, Water Retention And Bloating and Skin Wrinkles.
Research has found that hormonal imbalances are associated with deficiencies in Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s), including Omega-3 and Omega-6. What’s more is that 80% of Westerners are deficient in EFA’s. Studies have found that women who experience symptoms of hormone imbalance are lacking in the Omega-6 – Gamma-linolenic Acid (GLA). It is difficult to get GLA from foods, as it only occurs naturally in a small amount of foods. Under normal circumstances, the body can convert the Omega 6, Linoleic Acid to GLA, yet it’s been discovered that many women who have hormonal imbalances are not able to make the conversion effectively.
By adding Hemp to the diet, many of these symptoms and deficiencies can be alleviated. Hemp contains the perfect balance of EFA’s and is one of the only plants to contain GL,A so the body does not have to rely on converting it.
Adding (1-2) Tablespoons of Hemp See Oil, or (3-5) Tablespoons of Hulled Hemp Seed a day, is a delicious, easy way to assist in achieving natural hormone balance and vibrant, health.
