Seed Cycling Recipes: A Natural Way to Balance Your Hormones


Seed cycling is an excellent way to balance your hormones and support your body during the first two phases of your menstrual cycle. During the first half of your cycle, seed cycling helps balance your estrogen levels, while during the second half of your cycle, it helps balance your progesterone levels. To get the most out of this technique, it’s important to keep track of your cycle so you know which seed mixture to add in when.
