From Ora Organic:
Hormonious wants to help get you and your hormones to a place called ‘homeostasis.’ That means we want your hormones to maintain a relatively stable level despite the best efforts of external stressors that might otherwise lead to an undesirable increase or decrease in specific hormones such as cortisol (considered the ‘stress hormone’), testosterone, progesterone, or estrogen (sex hormones).
To help you achieve this, we’ve formulated Hormonious with a blend of organic adaptogenic herbs. Adaptogenic herbs help your body adapt to those nasty external stressors and keep you in the balance so you’re less likely to experience the side effects of a hormonal imbalance. First up in our superstar lineup of ingredients is the hardy maca root, grown at 13,000 feet above sea level in Peru. Maca has seen some promising studies regarding its ability to help support and balance sex hormones . Your sex hormones can have a big impact on fertility, libido, your energy levels, and - less obviously - acne. And it doesn’t stop there: one review of four studies in menopausal women found that maca helped alleviate menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes and interrupted sleep .
Ashwagandha is well known for supporting a healthy hormone balance by helping to relieve stress and anxiety . Not as well known, perhaps, is that it also helps promote healthy blood sugar levels through its support of the hormone insulin . Healthy blood sugar levels are essential to hormonal balance, and ashwagandha supports both healthy insulin secretion and sensitivity, making it easier for sugar to be absorbed and used in the body.
Burdock root, known as a ‘hormone stabilizer,’ can help support your liver in the metabolization of hormones, like in the excretion of excess estrogen, for example. This is important in estrogen-excess health conditions, such as endometriosis, where the recommendation is often to help clear estrogen from the body .
Holy basil (also known as tulsi) is an Ayurvedic herb that has historically been used to treat a variety of general ailments. We’ve included it because it can help maintain an already-healthy level of the stress hormone cortisol . When left unchecked, excess cortisol can cause acne, weight gain, and anxiety - so this is an important hormone to care for.
Long heralded as a healing herb in Chinese medicine, cordyceps has been studied and shown to have a wide range of benefits, suggesting it may promote a healthy immune system and support overall health .
Last but not least, we have our trusty vitamin C from organic acerola cherry. Vitamin C can supply vital antioxidants to support your body’s natural response to combating environmental stressors and promote healing in the skin when you just can’t stop yourself from popping that pimple .
