Why Seed Cycling?

Seed cycling is a naturally  way to regulate hormone levels and support women's health. By consuming specific seeds in accordance with your menstrual cycle, you can optimise hormonal balance, alleviate symptoms, and promote overall well-being. With our Seed Cycling + Protein Mixes, incorporating this practice into your daily routine has never been easier.

Proteins play a crucial role in nearly every biological process, and their importance extends to the synthesis and function of hormones, making them foundational to the health of the endocrine system. Here's an overview of why protein is so vital, especially for women, and the connection between protein intake and hormonal balance.

Role of Protein in Hormone Production

  1. Building Blocks for Hormones: Proteins are made up of amino acids, which are often referred to as the building blocks of the body. Several hormones are peptides or proteins themselves, composed of sequences of amino acids. For example, insulin, a key hormone in regulating glucose levels, is a small protein.
  2. Enzyme Production: Many enzymes are proteins that catalyze biochemical reactions, including those involved in the synthesis and breakdown of hormones. Without these enzymes, the body cannot properly regulate hormone levels.
  3. Transport and Signaling: Proteins are involved in the transport of hormones throughout the body and play a role in the signaling mechanisms that hormones use to communicate with cells. For instance, hormone receptors on the surface of cells are proteins that recognise and bind to specific hormones, initiating a response.

Importance of Adequate Protein Intake for Women

For women, maintaining a balanced diet with adequate protein is crucial due to the intricate interplay between hormones and various aspects of health, including menstrual cycles, pregnancy, menopause, and overall metabolic function.

  • Reproductive Health: Adequate protein intake supports the production and regulation of reproductive hormones like estrogen and progesterone. Imbalances in these hormones can affect menstrual cycles, fertility, and menopause symptoms.
  • Muscle Mass and Metabolism: Protein is essential for building and repairing muscle tissue. Muscle mass is closely linked to metabolic rate; more muscle mass generally means a higher metabolism. This is particularly important as women age and naturally lose muscle mass, potentially leading to a slower metabolism and associated health issues.
  • Stress and Adrenal Health: The adrenal glands, which produce cortisol (a stress hormone), require sufficient protein for proper function. Chronic stress can lead to adrenal fatigue, wherein the body struggles to regulate cortisol levels, leading to further hormonal imbalances.

Challenges in Getting Enough Protein

Many factors contribute to the challenge some women face in consuming adequate protein:

  • Dietary Restrictions: Vegetarian and vegan diets, while healthy and sustainable choices, can make it challenging to get enough high-quality protein unless carefully planned to include a variety of plant-based protein sources.
  • Lifestyle and Time Constraints: Busy lifestyles can lead to relying on quick, often less nutritious food options that may be lower in protein.
  • Misconceptions about Protein Needs: There's sometimes a lack of awareness about how much protein is needed for optimal health, especially among women who may underestimate their protein requirements.

Ensuring Adequate Protein Intake

It's important for women to aim for a sufficient intake of protein from a variety of sources, considering factors like age, activity level, and any health conditions. For non-vegetarians, this includes lean meats, fish, and dairy. For vegetarians and vegans, legumes, nuts, seeds, and soy products are excellent sources.

Supplementing with quality protein powders (Like Inca Inchi and Hemp Protein) can also be a great option for those struggling to meet their protein needs through diet alone.

Understanding the role of protein in hormone production and overall health underscores the need for a balanced diet rich in essential nutrients. Ensuring adequate protein intake is a cornerstone of maintaining hormonal balance and supporting the endocrine system's complex functions.

Excessive protein, especially in supplement for women

Some protein supplements, especially those formulated for men and containing high levels of protein, can potentially put strain on women's kidneys. Women typically have smaller body sizes and lower muscle mass than men, so they may not require as much protein as men do. Consuming excessive protein, especially in supplement form, can lead to an increased workload on the kidneys as they work to process and excrete the excess nitrogen waste generated by protein metabolism. This can potentially cause kidney strain or exacerbate existing kidney issues.

It's important for women to be mindful of their individual protein needs and consult with a practitioner before starting any new protein supplement regimen. They can provide personalised recommendations based on factors such as age, weight, activity level, and overall health status to ensure safe and appropriate protein intake. Additionally, opting for protein supplements specifically formulated for women or those with lower protein content may be a more suitable option to minimize the risk of kidney strain.

What's Inside Seed Cycling + Protein?

Our Seed Cycling + Protein Mixes are packed with wholesome ingredients carefully selected for their health benefits:

Inca Inchi Protein

Derived from the seeds of the Plukenetia volubilis plant native to the Amazon rainforest in Peru, Inca Inchi Protein is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, and protein. These nutrients play a crucial role in hormone production, muscle repair, and inflammation reduction, ultimately supporting hormonal balance and overall health.

Hemp Protein

Made from ground hemp seeds, Hemp Protein is high in fiber, protein, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, magnesium, and iron. Its balanced omega fatty acid profile supports hormonal balance, while its rich mineral content promotes overall endocrine health. Additionally, the presence of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) in hemp protein may help alleviate symptoms of PMS and menopause, further contributing to hormonal equilibrium.

Camu Camu

Native to the Amazon rainforest in South America, Camu Camu is incredibly rich in vitamin C, antioxidants, flavonoids, and amino acids. Vitamin C plays a crucial role in immune function, collagen production, and mood regulation. Its antioxidant properties combat free radicals and reduce inflammation, supporting overall endocrine health and hormonal balance.

Rapadura sugar

Rapadura sugar is a nutrition-rich alternative to processed sugars. Made from pure sugarcane juice, it retains natural vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. With a delightful caramel flavor, it's packed with vital nutrients like calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Free from additives and artificial processing, it promotes stable blood sugar and sustained energy.

Green Leaf Stevia

Stevia rebaudiana plant, native to Brazil and Paraguay. Allowing us to keep our protein mix low in sugar while still enjoying a delicious taste. With no sugars or carbohydrates, Stevia helps us maintain blood sugar levels

Celtic Sea Salt

Celtic sea salt, harvested from the pristine coastal regions of France, is renowned for its exceptional mineral content and numerous health benefits. Unlike refined table salt, Celtic sea salt retains its natural balance of electrolytes, including sodium, potassium, and magnesium, which are vital for maintaining proper hydration and supporting optimal nerve and muscle function. Additionally, its alkalizing effects on the body can help restore pH balance and promote overall wellness. Celtic sea salt is also rich in trace minerals, aiding in detoxification, improving digestion and nutrient absorption, and supporting a robust immune system.
