Do You Suffer from Hormone Imbalance?

Hormone imbalances can cause everything from bloating and breakouts to missed periods and cramps. Imbalances most often manifest as an overabundance of estrogen and/or low progesterone levels. Food can help!


The Two Main Causes of Hormone Imbalance

Research shows that 80% of women suffer from hormonal imbalance. While there are many factors that play a part, there are two leading causes to look out for:

1. Nutrient Deficiency: Due to the amount of processed foods we all take in nowadays, nutrient deficiency has become a leading cause of hormone imbalance for women in the US.

When your body is short on micronutrients, it starts to cut corners. It is not able to produce and release enough progesterone to end your cycle properly and bring on your period without major bloating or acne. That's because it is using the little iron, magnesium, zinc, and Vitamin D it receives for more basic survival functions.

2. Environmental Toxins: Without sufficient nutrients, our body is not able to eliminate environmental toxins properly which continue to build up and lead to PMS and other symptoms that indicate that your body needs to rebalance.

How To Naturally Balance Your Hormones?

A nutrient-dense diet is key. Integrating dark leafy greens, and probiotic foods into your diet can help to balance your estrogen and progesterone levels.

However, sometimes we want those sweet cookies, even though sugar will actually push our hormones out of balance more. Agni's Medical Advisory identified the major nutrients that women are most often depleted in and then worked with food scientists and top checks to turn them into foods that replenish the nutrients we need most.

Formulated by our Medical Advisory Board

Each product is created by the medical experts on our Medical Advisory Board to replenish those nutrients we need most for hormone balance. The Board is closely involved through all stages of product development, from identifying ingredients they recommend to final product approval.

WHAT CUSTOMERS

— SAY

“The thing that prompted me to order this was that my menstrual cycle has been very irregular this year so I suspect my hormones are off. I’d completely missed my last period. When I received the cookies, I had at least one a day for a week and my period came at the end of that week.”

“So much deliciousness and flavor in one small box! This set contains everything that I need to feel balanced for the entire month without having to follow a difficult plan. Just sprinkle over what I eat and I’m good to go. Couldn’t be easier and I am already noticing an improvement in only a couple short months.”

“I’m on month 3 of seed cycling for the first time and so far I’m pleasantly surprised. I’ve only ever tried hormonal birth control to manage my symptoms (which was successful in some respects) and I can say I’ve noticed similar improvements in my symptoms. And it all tastes good,-every month without fail. On Day 1 the Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are just about the only thing I can eat to start my day and my body craves the Sesame Nori seasoning when Day 15 comes around.”

— FAQ

How will these foods impact my cycle?

These products were created in tandem with our Medical Advisory Board based on traditional practices for supporting healthy, regular, pain-free menstruation and ovulation as well as on emerging research showing that ingredients like flax seeds may support hormonal balance. Several of our customers have reported improved period symptoms, more regular ovulation, or being able to conceive after incorporating our products. However, these products are not intended to treat or cure disease, and they have not been studied for efficacy. As always, we recommend consulting a health provider you trust about a comprehensive plan for your specific health needs and goals. 

Can I eat these foods if I’m on birth control?

Yes! All of the ingredients in these products are safe, common plants and seeds that you might already have in your kitchen and will not interfere with your current birth control method.

If I’m trying to avoid getting pregnant will these make me hyper-fertile?

Fertility can be a good proxy for how nourished, rested, and balanced the body is. Anything you do to stay healthy (e.g. getting restful sleep, eating nutrient dense meals, meditating, exercising) can impact your fertility (and make you more fertile!) This doesn’t mean that you will suddenly get pregnant, especially if you are already using an effective form of contraception. If you are tracking your cycle to avoid getting pregnant, be mindful that any significant changes in lifestyle can change the date of your ovulation and thus shift the window in which you need to avoid unprotected sex. 

What types of ingredients are in your products?

We only use the best available, whole ingredients and leave out anything unnecessary. We never use nuts, dairy, gluten, soy, or ingredients that have been genetically engineered, though our production facilities sometimes do. Even the brewer's yeast we use in the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie is gluten-free. How? Brewer’s yeast is typically grown on barley and therefore contains trace amounts of gluten, but we use a brewer’s yeast that is grown on beets. We also always choose organic when that's an option. We only let you taste things that we're obsessed with ourselves, and we hope you love them as much as we do. If you have questions about our ingredients, please reach out to us at support@agniforall.com.

Are your products certified organic?

Our cookies and teas have 100% organic ingredients. As of August 2020, 50% of our seasonings have certified organic ingredients and we are working on getting to 100! Our seasonings are trickier because we use a lot of speciality ingredients. These are often grown on smaller farms that practice organic farming, but do not necessarily have the financial or operational bandwidth to get organic certified.

Are your products gluten-free?

All of our products are free of gluten. For our Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, we source a special type of Brewer’s Yeast (usually grown on wheat) that has been grown on beets to ensure there are no trace elements of gluten for anyone who is sensitive or intolerant to gluten. 

Are your products allergen-free?

All of our products are free from the most common allergens, including milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, and soybeans. Our cookies are packaged in a facility that handles tree nuts.

Are your products non-GMO?

All of our products are made with non-GMO ingredients. We strive to never use any ingredient that has been genetically modified.

Are your products vegan?

All of our products are 100% vegan. We do not use any animal-derived ingredients, such as milk, eggs, or whey protein in our products.

Why do you use coconut sugar in some of your products?

Coconut sugar is a natural sweetener made from drying the sap of the coconut palm and grinding it into crystals. We love it because it has a much lower glycemic index than cane sugar (35 vs. 50) and includes many micronutrients (including potassium, magnesium, and zinc) that support hydration, digestion, and other vital functions. We prefer using coconut sugar to any artificial or refined sweeteners, and think that balanced sweetness makes certain foods taste awesome. When things taste good, they make us feel good which is also important for our health.

Are your products perishable?

All of our products are shelf stable. To maximize shelf life and quality, please store our products in a dark, cool place. The cookies taste freshest if enjoyed within six weeks of purchase. They have a safe shelf life of one year, but they’ll probably disappear long before then :)

Do you complete clinical trials on your products before releasing them?

We are very passionate about getting people access to nutrient-dense foods that can support them through life moments. We are also grateful that our society already has a wealth of insight and research around science-backed foods that can help specific recovery processes. We’re starting by tapping into these existing studies (and experts) so that we can get these foods out into the world. Over time, we’re excited to gather enough resources to complete trials of our own. For now, here’s a little more detail about how we ensure we (and our Medical Advisory Board) feel great about recommending everything we create:

Are your product safe to consume during pregnancy?

Our Medical Advisors feel that all of our products are safe for pregnant women (our CEO & Co-founder Astrid recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and often consumed Agni foods and teas during her pregnancy!).
