All nutritionists have their own top products that have a great effect on the general condition of the skin, hair, nails and the entire body. BeautyHack has figured out what must be included in the diet to stay in top shape.
Pay for the first or second
Every third woman lacks the female sex hormones estrogen. Their synthesis decreases with age, and this is quite natural. However, a lack of estrogen can also be observed at a young age with intense strength sports, physical inactivity (a sedentary lifestyle), malnutrition, stress, depression. This is accompanied by unpleasant symptoms: dry skin, loss of strength, absent-mindedness, menstrual irregularities.
You can normalize hormonal levels with the help of special drugs (thanks, modern medicine!). But there is another, less radical way - adjusting the diet (if the case is not neglected, of course).
Most often, girls with insufficient body weight are faced with estrogen deficiency. The fact is that adipose tissue is able to store and synthesize an impressive part of female hormones. Sitting on a low-calorie diet, along with the extra centimeters, we also lose the estrogens that are so necessary for us. That is why nutritionists are vying with each other to shout that nutrition should be balanced - only then weight loss will take place for the body without undesirable consequences.
When drawing up a menu, the hormonal factor must be taken into account first. In your daily diet, be sure to include foods that contain estrogen analogs or promote their synthesis in the body.
The first group of products includes soybeans, beans, grain bread, green peas. The fruits of these plants contain so-called phytoestrogens, which have a positive effect on the body. The second group is fish, poultry, eggs, dairy and fermented milk products.
We have compiled our own list of "female" products. Pay special attention to them and add them to your menu (especially if you are on a diet).
Flax seeds. It is no coincidence that they became the leader of our collection! Flax seeds are not only a natural phytoestrogen, but also a real storehouse of vitamins and nutrients. They contain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are responsible for the ideal condition of the skin and hair, as well as selenium, potassium, lecithin and B vitamins
Eggplant. They are also a source of phytoestrogens. But this is far from their only advantage. The vegetable is rich in vitamins A, C, P and group B, proteins, potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron and phosphorus. By the way, phytoestrogens are also found in pumpkin, tomatoes, broccoli and carrots
Leafy vegetables. All leafy vegetables, from cabbage to iceberg lettuce, are rich in fiber and chlorophyll, which helps eliminate toxins and toxins. Moreover, the more saturated the green color of the product, the more pigment in it that cleans the body. Nutritionists advise eating at least three servings of leafy vegetables a day
Nuts. Nuts are high in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which lower blood cholesterol levels and normalize the cardiovascular system. In addition, it is an excellent source of protein, calcium, selenium, vitamins A and E and folic acid, which is so important for the female body
Cranberries. Cranberries contain a shock dose of vitamin C and proanthocyanids - substances of natural origin with powerful antioxidant properties. They fight toxins, remove toxins and have a beneficial effect on the genitourinary system. Cranberries are also rich in B vitamins, pectins, tannins, phosphorus, calcium, iron, manganese, copper and other macro- and microelements useful for the female body
