Irrespective of what’s going on in the world, as we turn the corner towards winter, this is the time of year when we want to start supporting the immune system to build more resilience.
For many people, a bloated tummy is a regular, sometimes every day, occurrence and can be the bane of their lives. Bloating can be created by myriad factors — sometimes it’s food intolerances or poor digestion, sometimes a sex hormone imbalance or an overworked liver. Supporting the body system that is not functioning optimally is the key to effectively managing and resolving bloating.
Cycle Essentials helps to reduce bloating associated with the lead up to your period by promoting healthy ovulation and ovarian function and nourishing your adrenal glands. After years of over-consuming liver-loaders, and/or hormonal or bowel problems, the detoxification pathways of the liver can become congested. This can lead to an estrogen dominance and a recycling of estrogen back through the bloodstream. Excess estrogen alone can lead to bloating, not to mention the ratio between estrogen and progesterone – both through menstruation and menopausal years. Liver Love contains foods and herbs that support healthy liver function and efficient detoxification pathways. It can also help to clear the body of excess estrogen through these detoxification and elimination processes. We also need a healthy gut and strong digestion to support our elimination pathways. If we lose that and an accumulation of waste products occurs, it may result in IBS type symptoms, inflammation in the gut (and the rest of the body) and an overarching weariness. If you feel that your body could use some help with its efficiency in eliminating waste products, Organic Daily Greens and Radiant Reds will help with this and many other processes.
