When a woman's beauty shines from within. After all, external beauty depends primarily on internal health and condition. And a woman's health is greatly influenced by the hormonal background - the hormones in the body. One such group of female hormones is called estrogens.
The main activity of estrogens is to ensure the female reproductive function. The word estrogen is made up of two parts: oistros - irresistible desire, aistra genes - causing. Or another, more literal translation - liveliness (brightness) + kindred. It can be said that it is a sex hormone. According to doctors, this hormone ensures round, feminine shapes, breasts and even female enhancements.
When there is a lack of estrogen, the following symptoms are typical: sudden changes in mood or even depression, PMS, cellulite, weight gain, hot flashes, profuse night sweats, rapid fatigue, decreased self-esteem, lack of concern for one's appearance, decreased sexual attraction and sensuality.
That is why estrogen is called the hormone of youth. As long as a woman feels feminine and attractive, age does not matter. But based on these symptoms alone, it is impossible to diagnose estrogen deficiency. Symptoms such as depression and rapid fatigue are common to many other ailments. It is possible to determine the background level of hormones only after conducting tests.
It is based on the results of the tests that doctors prescribe replacement or curative hormone therapy. However, it has long been proven that artificial hormones affect the body much more strongly and aggressively than phytoestrogens - plant hormones.
The main problem with hormone therapy is that with long-term use of artificial hormones, a woman's body practically stops producing them on its own (considering that it did not produce a lot of them before). And it is practically impossible to restore this process after that.
Phytoestrogens - plant hormones act gently, not so aggressively. Therefore, if it turns out that the level of estrogen in your body has decreased, it is better to maintain its level by using products and herbs that contain plant hormones. For example "FOR WOMEN".
By the way, this is a good way to normalize the level of hormones after childbirth, when a sudden decrease in estrogen production in the body can lead to postpartum depression and hair loss.
PRODUCTS CONTAINING PHYTOESTROGEN
- Seeds; flax seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin and sunflower seeds,
- Soya products; soybeans, tofu, soy yogurt,

In addition to the hormonal effect, flaxseed also has other beneficial properties for the female body (anti-tumor, body cleansing, antioxidant properties...).
Flax seeds should be used soaked overnight, then they can be added to shake cocktails, sauces, etc. Porridges, soups and dishes can be flavored with them. Plant lignan is also found in sesame and sunflower seeds.
Legumes (peas, beans, chickpeas) and especially soy because they contain isoflavonoids, a type of phytoestrogen.
90 percent soy is genetically modified. And that's why we would especially like to single out and add one more type of legume - lentils. They just need to be closed in the evening. Boil for 15-20 minutes in the morning. This is a unique product for women: lentils contain the maximum amount of protein found in vegetable products. Lentils also contain tryptophan, which turns into serotonin, which in turn helps to fight depression.
Apricots contain the most hormone lignan of all fruits. They can be eaten fresh or dried. By the way, in the Hunza nation, which is famous for its health and longevity, the main food all year round is apricots.

This natural hormone is also found in animal products, but currently doctors are of the unanimous opinion that even if you want to raise the level of hormones in the body, it is better not to use them. It is not recommended to do it because now all meat and milk already contain hormones, they contain chemicals that stimulate the growth of animals.
They perform the same function in the body as real estrogens.
Phytoestrogens include soy, peas, beans, mushrooms, cabbage, rowan, sage, clover.
PHYSICAL ACTIVITY IS NECESSARY
You may not want to exercise, but you need to. Not necessarily in the morning - at any time of the day, when the body is most in the mood for physical activity. Not necessarily every day, but two or three times a week would be preferable. Together with general strengthening exercises, you should also choose those that maximally load the legs, hips and buttocks. For example, running in place, any kind of dance, cycling, belly dancing...
During such exercise, blood circulation improves significantly and cellulite decreases. The ideal form of physical activity can be called swimming, during which the water tones, massages and moisturizes the skin.
