6 Vitamins and Minerals For Hormone Balance

From our weight to our mood, hormones are responsible for regulating many bodily processes. When it comes to staying healthy, one of the most beneficial things we can do for ourselves is to ensure our hormones remain in proper balance.

Many factors affect our hormones, and some of us struggle more than others to regulate them. That’s why, today, we’re sharing six vitamins to help you keep your hormones balanced. We’ll discuss why these vitamins are essential, who is most affected by an imbalance, and how to supplement these vitamins if you are running low.

Vitamin D

Our first vitamin on the list is critical for healthy bones and joints. Vitamin D is essential for building healthy bones and preventing injury. Women with vitamin D deficiencies often face an increased risk of arthritis and osteoporosis.

Beyond the concern for bone health, women with low Vitamin D levels can also suffer fluctuations in Estrogen levels.

These swings can impact mood, the health of hair, skin, and nails, and reproductive health.

Vitamin D deficiencies are prevalent, and many people need supplements to maintain optimal levels because dietary sources of vitamin D are only in artificially fortified foods like milk and certain cereals. Vitamin D is absorbed naturally through direct sunlight, which can be challenging for most adults to get enough of in a day. Oral supplements are the most common way people improve their vitamin D levels.

Magnesium is a mineral that occurs naturally in many foods our bodies require to support healthy cells.

This mineral fuels our mitochondria, which supply energy to our cells. Without enough energy, our cells cannot do their job effectively.

Magnesium helps with hormonal balance by helping improve sleep quality, balancing mood, and reducing PMS symptoms.

Although magnesium is readily available in most diets or oral supplements, IV supplementation is the best choice for combating severe deficiencies or low levels stemming from a digestive disorder.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is crucial for immune health, recovery, and cell regeneration, but it also helps manage many different hormone levels and the body’s reaction to stress. In particular, vitamin C helps manage adrenaline and cortisol levels in the brain, fights off testosterone destruction in men 1, and helps improve hormonal balance in women during pregnancy.

Vitamin C is plentiful in citrus fruits like oranges, making getting the daily amount very easy. It is also a part of many cold treatments and multivitamins.

Vitamin B6 

Vitamin B6 is part of the B complex vitamins everyone needs to stay healthy. B6 helps support immune and nervous system health by protecting nerve cells and their reactions. It also has been shown to eliminate mood swings brought on by premenstrual syndrome.

B6 is found in many foods, including leafy green vegetables, nuts, fruit, meat, and fish, as well as complex B vitamin supplements, making it easy to manage levels of B6 in the body.

Vitamin B12

B12 is another essential B vitamin. This particular vitamin works to improve metabolism and brain cell function. B12 also helps regulate thyroid function.

The thyroid produces the hormones that regulate weight gain, energy production from food intake, and metabolism.

B12 deficiency has been linked to poor thyroid function 2, which can cause hormonal imbalance. B12 is abundant in many food sources, including fish, meat, poultry, and dairy products. Those with a vegan diet are advised to take supplements.

Oral supplements can maintain healthy levels of B12, but if a deficiency is found, getting an IV infusion is the faster and safer way to correct the problem.

Zinc is a mineral that helps support immune and metabolic bodily functions.

It also helps with wound healing and cell reproduction, allowing our bodies to grow and repair after injury.

For hormonal health, zinc is responsible for how the body releases hormones 3, making it particularly important for men who may have issues with their testosterone levels, a potential sign of a zinc deficiency.

Zinc is found primarily in red meats and fortified foods. If a person does not get enough, many oral supplements now include zinc, and an IV infusion is an efficient option to restore nutrient levels quickly.

Last Words

That completes our list of 6 vitamins to support hormone balance. If you are experiencing any unusual symptoms, it is important to speak to your doctor. They can help check your nutrient levels and supplement any deficiencies using oral supplements or IV treatments when necessary.
