Hormones are basically chemical signals that run our bodies’ functions. They control our reproductive systems, the level of the stress we feel and our metabolism. While it is normal for our hormone levels to fluctuate every now and then, if they are chronically imbalanced or if their levels are abnormally high or low, they can wreak havoc on our bodies. An improper diet, lack of physical activity and lack of a proper sleep schedule are often culprits for hormonal imbalances.

But did you know, we have teas that can help you balance your hormones? Come explore them with us.

Balancing stress hormones

Cortisol, a hormone produced by the adrenal glands, is mainly responsible for keeping us in flight or fight mode, preparing us to spring into action. While beneficial in small amounts, a high level of cortisol in our blood chronically is very harmful. This means we stay in the stress state for far longer than our bodies can endure.

Make it a practice to wind down your days with a cup of Chamomile, a caffeine free tea which will melt away the stress of the day. Don’t miss trying our flavoured Chamomiles, Mint and Rose.

Balancing metabolic hormones

Our metabolic rate is determined by hormones such as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Insulin, produced by the thyroid gland also affects our metabolic rate.

Green tea helps you keep your blood sugar levels in check, preventing excessive weight gain or loss, fatigue and a healthy heart rate. At Friolera, we’ve experimented with a variety of flavors with green tea bringing you unique blends.

To keep your reproductive hormones in check, we suggest Spearmint leaves, Spearmint tea or even nettle leaves.

We lead very stressful lives today. Work for a lot of people involves long hours. The lack of sleep, the hustle of working and commuting catch up to most people, resulting in many lifestyle problems. We are seated for 8 hours a day, staring at screens that make sleep elusive. We hardly have any time to workout and our food is often adulterated. The best way to balance your hormones is to actually live a balanced lifestyle, where you eat nutritious and wholesome food, sleep for about 8 hours a night and include at least 30 minutes of physical activity everyday. When we fail to do this, our hormones go out of whack, causing numerous problems. Creating rituals for self care is the need of the hour for every one of us, so that we live healthier and more balanced lives.
