The role of fiber in hormone health…
All hail fiber because without it, our hormones would be whack
⭐️ It works to eliminate constipation – Insoluble fiber helps us stay regular af in the bathroom, and this is KEY to eliminating excess estrogen. If we’re not pooping regularly, that allows estrogen (and toxins) to stay in the body and recirculate into the system, which can lead to estrogen dominance and symptoms such as bloating, difficulty getting an O, breast tenderness, heavy cycles, and more.
⭐️ It can serve as a solution to loose stool – If you struggle with loose stool, you shouldn’t be scared of fiber! Soluble fiber such as psyllium husk and oats can create structure which can firm up stool issues. If stool is too loose, it can lead to nutrient deficiencies which can impact our hormone production.
⭐️ It feeds the gut bacteria – Fiber is a source of prebiotic, meaning it feeds our good bacteria! A healthy gut microbiome plays a role in immune function, serotonin production, ovulation, and more.
