As the Founder of Avastaria and master herbalist, I am passionate about exploring the power of nature's remedies to promote holistic wellness.

In this article, we will delve into the world of herbal medicine and uncover the seven best herbs that help balance hormones.

These incredible botanicals have been used for centuries to support hormonal health and offer a range of benefits. From menstrual irregularities to menopause, these herbs hold the potential to restore balance and harmony within our bodies.

1. Chaste Tree (Vitex agnus-castus)

Chaste Tree, also known as Vitex, is a prominent herb in promoting hormone balance. It has been traditionally used to address menstrual irregularities, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and hormonal acne. I have personally used and like this Vitex made by Gaia Herbs because of its purity and how it supports the production of progesterone, helps ease mood swings, cramps, and irregular periods. Chaste Tree acts on the pituitary gland, helping regulate the production of progesterone and luteinizing hormone. This herb offers a natural solution for restoring menstrual regularity and reducing common PMS symptoms.

2. Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis)

Dong Quai, also known as the "female ginseng," holds a special place in traditional Chinese medicine for women's health. This herb is often used to alleviate menstrual pain, regulate menstrual cycles, and relieve menopausal symptoms. Dong Quai is believed to nourish the blood and tonify the reproductive system, making it an excellent choice for hormonal balance. 

I like this Dong Quai because its revered for its ability to balance hormones, regulate menstrual cycles, and ease menopausal symptoms. Dong Quai nurtures the reproductive system and helps alleviate common issues such as cramps, hot flashes, and fatigue. Embrace the grace and wisdom of Dong Quai in your quest for hormonal harmony.

3. Black Cohosh (Actaea racemosa)

Black Cohosh is a herb native to North America that has gained recognition for its beneficial effects on menopausal symptoms. It contains compounds that mimic the action of estrogen in the body, providing relief from hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and sleep disturbances.

Black Cohosh offers a natural alternative for women seeking support during the menopausal transition. Let's welcome the magnificent Black Cohosh to our list. This herb is renowned for its prowess in alleviating menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings.

This particular Black Cohosh works as a gentle estrogen regulator, offering relief during this transformative phase of a woman's life. Embrace the soothing power of Black Cohosh and embrace your journey with confidence.

4. Red Raspberry Leaf (Rubus idaeus)

Red Raspberry Leaf, a popular herb among women, offers numerous benefits for reproductive health. It is rich in essential nutrients and has been traditionally used to tone the uterus, support healthy menstruation, and prepare the body for childbirth. I personally love this Red Raspberry Leaf Tea because its a wonderful ally for women throughout their reproductive journey, promoting hormonal balance and overall vitality.

5. Evening Primrose Oil (Oenothera biennis)

Evening primrose oil is a rich source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid that supports hormonal balance. I like this Evening Primrose Oil because it helps alleviate symptoms of PMS, such as breast tenderness, bloating, mood swings, and supports joints, and balances hormones. It's also organic, gluten-free and non-GMO too! Let the calming presence of Evening Primrose Oil restore balance to your body and mind.

6. Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)

Ashwagandha, an adaptogenic herb widely used in Ayurvedic medicine, has a profound impact on hormone balance and overall well-being. It supports the adrenal glands, reducing the effects of stress on the body. This particular Ashwagandha Supplement made by Gaia Herbs is known for its purity and is amazing because it helps regulate cortisol levels, reduces stress hormones, thus promoting hormonal balance, and improving thyroid function.

7. Maca Root (Lepidium meyenii)

Maca Root, a potent adaptogenic herb native to the Andes Mountains, offers numerous benefits for hormonal health. It helps balance hormone levels by supporting the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. I love adding this Maca Root powder to my morning smoothies because its organic, vegan, non-GMO, and gelatinized for better absorption. Its specifically known to enhance energy, improve libido, and reduce symptoms of hormonal imbalances such as mood swings and fatigue. This herb is a true ally for women seeking overall hormonal harmony.
