Hemp and Hormones

Posted by Sydney Parrish on

Hormones are chemical messengers that are released by glands or cells. Hormones have a wide variety of purposes from regulating growth to regulating the immune system. When there is an imbalance in the hormones in our body, we can feel irritable, encounter sleep problems, acne, memory fog, fatigue, hair loss, mood swings, weight gain, dry skin, headaches, etc. Obviously we want to make sure we keep our hormones in check, unless we're okay with acting a little off-hinge while not being able to fit into our clothes and unable to recall simple things. Our hormone health is dependent upon the amount of estrogen and progesterone in our bodies. Typically, when someone is experiencing a hormone imbalance, it is due to a high level of estrogen and low progesterone levels. Many people aren't aware that they are experiencing a  hormone balance, and just feel slightly off. Hormones can be affected simply by stress, poor nutrition, even chemicals in the air.


There are natural ways to get hormones back in balance without having to take the risk of adding a medication to your routine. One of the easiest ways to regulate hormones is through your food-intake. Eating things like lean proteins, leafy greens, and ensuring the intake of Omega fatty acids is essential.

Since hemp has the necessary ratio of Omega fatty acids, many people dealing with hormone imbalance will turn to hemp seeds for better regulation. A problem that many people experience is they are getting too many Omega 6 acids and not enough Omega 3 acids. Hemp has the ideal 3:1 ratio of the Omega fatty acids needed for optimum health. Hemp seeds are also high in gamma linolenic acid, which is an essential Omega 6 fatty acid found in borage oil and egg yolks that has been proven to naturally balance hormones. Hemp also contains all 20 amino acids, including 9 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce naturally.


If you are not convinced that hemp will help regulate your hormones, I would suggest reading the blog once more. There are other things that you can do to help regulate hormones such as exercising, prioritizing sleep, avoiding harmful chemicals, but Hemp seems like the most successful first step!
