This week on the blog we have been looking at the oral contraceptive pill (OCP) and women hormone balance. We have seen that the OCP has broad effects across women’s body systems, with nutrient levels being the main consequence.
We recommend additional B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, B12, manganese, magnesium, zinc, vitamin E and selenium, on top of your normal daily requirements for hormone support while on the OCP.
We have put together this Simple Chocolate Smoothie recipe that is high in magnesium to support boosting your magnesium status. Magnesium deficiency or low magnesium status is associated with many things; anything from unstable mood to muscle tension. This is because magnesium controls over three hundred enzymes within your body.
Cacao is a nutritional powerhouse offering a rich source of magnesium, antioxidants and potassium. Magnesium has been shown to reduce PMS symptoms such as anxiety, irritability and water retention. Increase the magnesium in this smoothie by choosing to add almond butter.
This smoothie also contains BePure EstroClear, an active daily detoxifier, scientifically formulated to support you in living with healthier, balanced hormones. BePure EstroClear if full of powerful natural ingredients that support up-regulating the detoxification system through the second phase of the liver.
1. Blend until smooth and enjoy.
To make this smoothie with more protein add 1 serving of your favourite protein powder and ½ cup of coconut cream.
*With all ingredients, choose organic and spray free when possible.
