Why we made this…
As synthetic hormones sneak their way into our food, ‘magic pill’ fixes become more popular, and stress only continues to increase, a healthy hormone balance can be tough to maintain. When your hormones are out of whack, your mood, energy levels, skin, and even hair can pay the price.
Who doesn’t feel self-conscious about hormonal acne? Many topical hormonal acne treatments promise clear skin, but more often than not, they come up short, and they do nothing to help deal with the other symptoms of hormonal imbalance. That’s where Hormonious comes in. Unlike many other hormonal supplements on the market, it doesn’t contain any artificial ingredients, isn’t outrageously expensive, and contains ingredients with real scientific benefits.
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).
The hardy maca root is 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.
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.
Known as a ‘hormone stabilizer,’ this root 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.
Also known as tulsi, this Ayurvedic herb 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 and studied for a wide range of benefits, suggesting it may promote a healthy immune system and support overall health.
