Hormones are chemical messengers within our bodies, responsible for the regulation of various bodily functions such as growth, metabolism, reproduction, and mood. They are incredibly important, and when they are out of balance, it can lead to a number of physical and mental issues, including anxiety, weight gain, fatigue, infertility, and depression. Balancing hormones is essential for overall health, as it helps to ensure that our bodies are functioning properly and that we’re feeling the best we can.
We’re all looking for ways to balance hormones naturally, and one of the ways in which you can do so is with the power of teas. Certain types of teas contain antioxidants and polyphenols that can help to balance hormones and put you at ease as well as many other hormone balancing properties that you wouldn’t even believe. Here at anatomē have put together this post, to tell you more about what teas you can drink to help balance your hormones.

Liquorice is an ingredient that is commonly used to help balance hormones, and it is extracted from the Liquorice plant and uses of it date all the way back to Ancient Egypt. Liquorice helps to support healthy oestrogen levels, as well as supporting our adrenal hormones and is extremely nourishing for our bodies.
Adrenal glands are responsible for producing hormones such as cortisol, epinephrine and norepinephrine which are vital to our bodily functions. Liquorice is also shown to be able to help support PMS symptoms, and is also fantastic for those going through menopause. It also contains compounds that help to balance the hormones progesterone and oestrogen, so you feel well-balanced throughout your daily life.
Chamomile is a herb used in many cultures all over the world, and is well known for being a natural remedy to help people sleep better and aid in curing insomnia. It can also help you to feel more relaxed and calmer, and aid in balancing hormones.
This daisy-like flower works to balance cortisol levels, which helps to regulate the body's stress response and reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. It can also help to reduce the intensity of menstrual cramps due to an amino acid called Glycine that’s found in Chamomile, and it also contains a compound called Apigenin which is believed to have relaxing effects.
Ashwagandha is an evergreen shrub that grows in Asia and Africa, and has been used for thousands of years especially for stress and anxiety. It’s long been used in Ayurvedic medicine, and is shown to be able to reduce anxiety and help people feel at ease.
Ashwangda works by supporting pathways in your brain that are responsible for producing and administering hormones in our bodies, and can help normalise levels of Cortisol and thyroid hormones. It also works by moderating your brain's HPA axis, which produces and releases multiple hormones including Cortisol which initiates your body's response to stress.
Ashwangda can help you get through stressful and event-filled days, and can also help to support energy restoration and heighten your concentration.
The nettles that you see when you’re out on a walk, are actually great for balancing hormones and supporting our bodies through periods of stress. Nettles can help to fight inflammation and stress, and positively impact our hormones addressing multiple sources of hormone disruption all at once.
Nettles help to naturally boost our iron, which encourages the production of TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone). Without the proper production of TSH, our thyroid won’t receive the signals that are necessary for the production of hormones T3 and T4. nettles also support our adrenals and endocrine systems, and can aid in lowering Cortisol and supporting our follicular stimulating hormones.
Last but not least, there's Cardamom, which is an Indian spice that’s well known for its intense flavours and uses in traditional medicine. Cardamom contains both flavonoids and phenylpropanoid, which are two classes of compounds with antioxidant activities that are produced by plants.
One of the flavonoids in Carmamom is Quercetin, which has a potential anti-anxiety effect in our brains by working to reduce our corticotropin-releasing hormone. Cardamom also has free radical scavenging capabilities, and can help to suppress oxidative stress and inflammatory processes also making it a fantastic tea to choose to help balance your hormones.
