Why Hormonal Imbalance Happens and How to Fix It!


Hormonal imbalance is a common issue, especially for women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).


Let's break down why it happens and what you can do to fix it.


Why Hormonal Imbalance Happens

  1. Insulin Resistance: One major cause is insulin resistance. When your body doesn't respond well to insulin, your pancreas produces more of it. High insulin levels can increase androgen (male hormone) production, leading to symptoms like irregular periods and acne.

  2. Stress: Chronic stress affects your adrenal glands, which produce cortisol, a stress hormone. Too much cortisol can disrupt other hormones, leading to imbalances.

  3. Poor Diet: Eating too much sugar and refined carbs can spike insulin levels and contribute to hormonal imbalances. A lack of essential nutrients can also affect hormone production.

  4. Lack of Sleep: Sleep is crucial for hormone regulation. Poor sleep can disrupt the balance of hormones that control appetite, stress, and metabolism.


How to Fix Hormonal Imbalance

  1. Balanced Diet:

  • PROVITA Rolled Oats: Start your day with a bowl of rolled oats. They are high in fiber and can help manage insulin levels.

  • PROVITA Chia Seeds and Cinnamon Powder: Add these to your meals. Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and cinnamon helps regulate blood sugar.

  • Healthy Fats: Include foods like avocados and nuts, which help maintain hormonal balance.

  1. Regular Exercise:

  • Engaging in regular physical activity can improve insulin sensitivity and reduce stress. Activities like walking, swimming, and yoga are particularly beneficial. Download our Monthy Fitness Calendar.

  1. Adequate Sleep:

  • Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night. Good sleep hygiene practices, like sticking to a regular sleep schedule and creating a relaxing bedtime routine, can help.

  1. Stress Management:

  • Incorporate stress-reducing practices like mindfulness, meditation, or gentle exercises like yoga. This can help lower cortisol levels and balance your hormones.

  1. Supplements:

  • PROVITA Probiotics: These can help improve gut health, which is closely linked to hormone balance.

  • PROVITA Cacao Husk Tea and PCoffee Rice Coffee: Enjoy these beverages to support overall wellness without the caffeine crash.

  1. Healthy Snacking:

  • PROVITA Peanut Spread: A delicious source of protein and healthy fats, perfect for keeping your blood sugar stable.

  • PROVITA Shape in Shake: Ideal for a quick, nutritious snack that supports muscle health and energy levels.
