The Seed Cycle Starter Kit is designed to rebalance your hormones naturally.
Seed cycling is the practice of eating specific seeds that support key hormones during each phase of your menstrual cycle. Seed cycling can help relieve PMS, increase fertility, regulate irregular cycles, and ease pain from reproductive conditions.
PHASE 1 - FOLLICULAR PHASE
Consume 3 tablespoons a day of the Phase 1 Blend during the follicular phase. The Follicular phase begins on the first day of your cycle and continues until ovulation (Approximately days 1 - 14 of your cycle).
PHASE 2 - LUTEAL PHASE
Switch to consuming 3 tablespoons a day of the Phase 2 Blend after you ovulate. The Luteal phase begins on the day following ovulation (Approximately days 15 - 28 of your cycle).
These days can vary from woman to woman, so we recommend tracking your cycle with an app or worksheet.
Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc, which supports progesterone production and release in the second phase of the cycle. helps to improve the formation of the corpus luteum, progesterone levels, and gets the endometrium prepped for implantation.
Flax seeds contain special properties called lignans which can help to bind excess estrogen in the first phase of the cycle. Studies have shown that consumption of flax seeds does both increase luteal phase length and reduce the number of anovulatory cycles, as well as improving your progesterone to estrogen ratio in the luteal phase.
Rich in healthy fats and essential fatty acids. They are also a great protein source and contain high amounts of vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc. The GLA in hemp seeds may regulate the hormone imbalances and inflammation associated with menopause. In a study in women with PMS, taking 1 gram of essential fatty acids — including 210 mg of GLA — per day resulted in a significant decrease in symptoms

Sixty percent of the oil in chia seeds is from these omega-3 fatty acids.
