The reproductive system plays a huge role in our whole body health, especially in women. There are many changes to a woman’s reproductive health throughout her life – or even just the course of a month – that affect mood, comfort, and wellbeing. And when our hormones or body are a bit of out whack, it can cause irregularities in the menstrual cycle.
Besides eating a well-balanced diet and living a healthy, active lifestyle, you can also improve your reproductive health by adding herbs to your diet!
Fennel is a warming spice used in Ayurvedic medicine. Its extracts promote estrogen in women, helping to regulate the menstrual cycle. It’s especially helpful if you’ve been feeling out-of-balance around ovulation. And, if you’re post-partum and nursing, fennel stimulates breast milk production.
Red clovers promote healthy, glowing skin, and contains high concentrations of natural estrogens. It can help detox and regulate your lymphatic system as well. Because it’s so rich in nutrients and natural estrogens, it’s a fantastic herb to help support your reproductive system during menopause.
Another popular herb used in Ayurvedic medicine, ashwagandha root has amazing rejuvenating abilities. It’s an adaptogenic and anabolic herb which helps tone and revitalize the body’s systems. Plus, it’s one of the few herbs to promote balance for both women’s and men’s reproductive health.
One of the best herbs for women, red raspberry leaf is known for its amazing benefits for women’s reproductive health. It’s used to naturally relieve menstrual cramps and discomfort, easing monthly symptoms. Plus, it helps promote healthy childbirth. It’s rich in the essential vitamins necessary for optimal health: iron, magnesium, potassium, vitamin C & B, and more. And during pregnancy, the herb can help with uterine contractions (like Braxton Hicks) and keep the immune system boosted.
