Hormones can sometimes be a bit finicky, and that’s where omega-3 fatty acids come in. These unsung heroes help keep your hormones balanced and on track. And guess what? Our salmon cakes are packed with these awesome omega-3s, giving your hormones the high-five they deserve.
Check out some of the nutrition-packed body balancing ingredients that will keep your hormones in check:
- Canned Salmon: A rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which play a vital role in regulating hormones and reducing inflammation, contributing to overall hormone health.
- Egg Yolks: Loaded with essential nutrients and healthy fats, egg yolks provide the building blocks needed for hormone production and cellular health.
- Sea Salt: Beyond flavor, sea salt contains trace minerals that support adrenal function, helping to manage stress and promote hormone equilibrium.
- Black Pepper: Piperine, found in black pepper, enhances nutrient absorption, aiding in the utilization of important compounds that influence hormonal processes.
- Paprika: Packed with antioxidants, paprika helps combat oxidative stress, which can affect hormone balance and overall well-being.
- Garlic: Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, garlic contributes to a balanced environment in the body, which supports optimal hormone function.
- Vidalia Onion: Containing quercetin, an antioxidant with potential hormone-modulating effects, Vidalia onions offer a natural way to influence estrogen levels.
- Duck Fat/Grass-fed Butter/Ghee: These healthy fats provide a stable source of energy and building blocks for hormone synthesis, promoting hormonal equilibrium.
