The Best Hormone Balancing Supplements

By Christine Hronec  

 There are natural ways to address hormone imbalances through real whole foods. The problem is that therapeutic dosages of the nutrients we need to obtain from food can be a logistical challenge. Trust me, I love brussels sprouts but I’m not eating over 6 pounds of them a day to get the phytonutrients I need to detoxify my liver.

I started formulating nutritional supplements in 2009, and as a food scientist I can assure you that you can get MOST of what you need through real food. In fact, it is always my preference that my clients use food as their “medicine.” However, there is a time and place when getting the nutrients your body requires can be impractical, inconvenient, or cost prohibitive.

In my work as a nutritionist and health coach, I observed more and more 1:1 coaching clients dealing with stubborn belly fat in the lower abdomen. By stubborn, I mean it won’t budge like at all! It wasn’t that they weren’t working hard, it wasn’t that they weren’t making every practical effort to eat healthy, it was that no matter what they did, they did not have meaningful results related to belly fat loss.

It turned out that the majority of these women were over 35, were dealing with reduced carb tolerance, irregular cycles, peri-menopause, menopause, pcos, cysts, fibroids, or undiagnosed estrogen dominance. As I identified nutritional solutions with how to adjust their macros, my research led me to uncover ingredients with scientific evidence for supporting hormonal health.

Indole-3-Carbinol (IC3)

This supplement is an all-natural phytochemical loaded with the nutrients naturally found in cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and brussels sprouts)[1]. This supplement supports healthy hormone balance and cellular health. Indole-3-Carbinol aka (IC3) is converted to di-indoylmethane (DIM) in the acidic environment of the stomach where it neutralizes free radicals and promotes the detoxification of excess estrogenic compounds.  Indole-3-carbinol is used for prevention of breast cancer, colon cancer, and other types of cancer. The benefits of Indole-3-Carbinol on estrogen metabolism are not only significant, its hands down one of the most straight forward and simple things one can do to boost hormone health [2][3].
