The Keto Diet to Balance your Hormones
You’re a strong, independent woman who happens to throw some PMS towards people once in awhile, otherwise you’re GOLDEN! Hey Girl, it’s me, your blogging mastermind here to talk about this thing called keto! You’ve probably heard about the benefits of the keto diet from someone in your life but I’m here to tell you how it can stop your PMS. In fact, mix it with S’moo and you’re hormones are going to be dancing in delight!
Today I’m going to mention these keto bars by Heka Good Foods because they are so yummy and paired with a S’moo smoothie, you’re going to be one healthy cookie! So why?!
Let’s go back in time a little…the keto diet was introduced in the early 20th century as a medical plan, meant to reduce epilepsy symptoms in children. Though studies found it had more impacts on our bodies than they originally realized. Some of those impacts were improved insulin responses and changes in hormone levels (for people already dealing with hormones imbalances).
Hormonal imbalance is extremely prevalent in our society (which you probably already know! #RealLife) and can contribute to many different health issues. A Keto diet can actual help with hormonal imbalances by improving insulin performance. Insulin resistance is extremely common today but most people are unaware of the problem until they develop serious chronic health issues.
The keto diet also affects cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone released by your adrenal glands. The adrenal glands sit above your kidneys and release hormones into your bloodstream, and likewise respond to feedback from other hormones and chemicals in your body. You can cause adrenal exhaustion from putting stress on your adrenals from a glucose response when we eat carbohydrates (causing your blood sugar to rise too quickly and drop rapidly, causing a stress response) and eventually they become incapable of repairing themselves.
Ultimately, ketogenic foods, like the Heka Good bars, are less taxing on the body compared to carbohydrate foods and can improve regulation of cortisol metabolism and this can help balance hormones.
A common imbalance in women is PCOS, which affects one in every ten women! If you or someone you know is suffering from this you should definitely point them towards S’moo, it is the leading product in the market to help women with PCOS. Drum roll please… S’moo is also keto friendly, 0G Carb and 1 Sugar hormone balancing powder. Though S’moo was designed to help with PCOS, it has been helping women all over the world to balance their hormones (PCOS or not) and manage PMS, weight gain and acne.
Now, remember when I mentioned PMS and how it happens, even to the best of us, it is one of those things that affects every person alive! We either have to deal with it ourselves or deal with someone how has it. I’ve always explained my PMS as another personality taking over. I consciously “know better” but I get that itch to be bad. Not bada$$ like Catwoman but more of a feral cat vibe *sigh* but like I briefly mentioned above, there are ways to help this, like a scoop of S’moo a day or the keto diet. There is no harm in doing both! Countless reviews of S’moo have come in expressing how their PMS has been under control since S’moo. For the Keto diet, being in ketosis means you’re limiting the amount of glucose in your blood. Low glucose means insulin will follow and stay low and the absence of excess insulin lets your hormones find their balance again.
So as you’re thinking about hormones and PMS, life as we know it and life as it will be. Grab a keto bar and a smoothie with a scoop of S’moo and sit back and enjoy the benefits in fact… try this amazing smoothie recipe that combines both!
