I can’t wait for you to dive into this episode with me because I think it’s SUCH an important topic & REFRAME!
Chugging coffee and/or pre workout FIRST THING in the morning is the NORM for so many people. BUT we do it without knowing WHAT it’s actually doing in your body and HOW it’s affecting your hormones.
Here’s some of the juicy details:
How having PRE WORKOUT/COFFEE/CAFFEINE first thing in the morning affects your body:
This continuous increase in cortisol leads to BLOOD SUGAR IMBALANCES & DECREASES PROGESTERONE.
[PROGESTERONE supports our metabolism, skin, hair, thyroid, ability to hold onto a pregnancy, regular periods & moods. Progesterone is easily DECREASES with POOR SLEEP & STRESS.]
REASONS to AVOID/REDUCE caffeine ESPECIALLY if you have PMS, are trying to conceive or have menstrual issues:
- Increases cortisol levels & stresses the adrenals which INTERFERES with OVULATION
-DEPLETES vital vitamins & minerals including B VITAMINS & FOLATE needed for OVULATION & healthy FERTILITY.
- In the 2016 research in fertility & sterility they found that “3 or more caffeinated beverages a day prior to conception increases the risk of miscarriage by 74%.” In the FLO by Alisa Vitti pg. 114
- Imbalanced gut flora reduces the ability to absorb nutrients
- Without adequate nutrients it's harder for your endocrine system to balance your hormones.
