Month 3: Gut and Hormone Health

Gut and hormone health

Welcome

Today, we will be talking about how gut health affects hormone balance. If you just can’t seem to get your hormones balanced no matter what you do – your gut could be the reason. Grab a notebook and pen for taking notes and let’s dive in.

Did you know?

Did you know that your gut helps regulate hormones?  Yup, it's true! There is a microbe population living in your gut, particularly in the intestines,  involved in female hormone balance called the Estrobolome. The Estrobolome is responsible for one essential hormone task – metabolizing estrogen!

The gut and Estrogen

Many of the hormonal problems common to women, such as belly bloat, weight gain, difficult periods, and skin issues can be signs that your gut is compromised, and your estrogen metabolism isn’t what it should be. When estrogen isn’t metabolized efficiently, this leads to an excess of the hormone in your body (hint: that’s not a good thing).
