Am I the only one that felt a little out of whack this week? Was it a coincidence that my blog discussed hormonal imbalance and estrogen dominance? Perhaps, I was foreshadowing the storm to come that left me feeling a little more emotional, and a little less energized.
Either way, fate brought me to discover a harmonious hormone balancing juice savior, and the immediate effects are pretty awesome! I call it my “feel good” juice, it’s a true vibrant and empowering, “I am female, hear me roar” type of blend.
Beyond my personal enjoyment and pep gained from drinking, this juice blend is a fantastic cleanse for your liver, providing the boost our liver needs to assist with properly funneling excess estrogen, and the ingredients work together fluidly for hormone balance with several components that cleanse out xenoestrogens (aka estrogen imposters).
It’s a beautiful way to start the day that will leave you feeling hormonally balanced over time!
Beets are well known for cleansing the blood, leading to stimulation of your liver. For this juice blend, beets are used for their Betaine properties, Betaine is a methylater (long word for enzyme detoxifier), moving bad estrogen out of our bodies.
The blend of dandelion greens, and all other fruits and vegetables in this blend, ensure that the liver gets Glutathione, which our body must have to break down excess estrogen. As a micro-nutrient, Glutathione can only be found in raw fruits and vegetables.
Celery contains phyto-estrogens, which decrease xenoestrogens and can prevent cancers caused by estrogen dominance.
Lemons and limes provide, d-Limonene, a phytochemical that helps with estrogen detoxification.
Apple provides insoluble fiber, which acts as an estrogen binder.
Flax seed contain omega 3 and 6, and phytoestrogens. These nutrients are super important for reducing inflammation, which can lead to hormonal imbalances over time. Omega’s are also important for proper hormone production.
Tumeric works both to cleanse liver by stimulating bile production, is a well-known natural hormone balancer, and contains antispasmodic, which relieves menstrual cramps.
