How to use Seed Cycling Pack for Irregular Periods

Female hormones are a complex system that works in a delicate balance. However, these hormones are greatly affected by diet, exercise, sleep, stress levels, and environmental toxins. This implies that each of these factors has the potential to disrupt the delicate equilibrium of your hormones. In turn, mild hormonal imbalances can underlie health conditions such as irregular periods, acne, PCOS, thyroid disease, and chronic fatigue. The Vapika Seed Cycling Pack helps gently but effectively support your hormones. This simple pack aids in sustaining harmonious hormone levels, alleviating PMS symptoms, enhancing fertility, and promoting menstrual stimulation.

What is seed Cycling?

Seed cycling involves the consumption of specific seeds during particular phases of the menstrual cycle, aiming to enhance and maintain hormonal health and functionality. For the seed cycling pack, the menstrual cycle is divided into two phases.

Phase 1 (follicular) begins on the first day of menstruation (usually 1 to 15 days or until ovulation begins).
Phase 2 (luteal) phase begins immediately after ovulation (from days 15 to 28-35 or on the first day of mensuration).

Potential Benefits Of Seed Cycling

Seed cycling pack helps to support your body and hormones to work properly and normally. The following hormone-related symptoms and conditions may improve with a consistent seed cycling pack:

  • Acne
  • PMS
  • Irregular Cycle
  • Infertility or sub-fertility
  • Too light or too heavy bleeding
  • Peri-menopause
  • PCOS
  • Irregular cycle

Which seeds are used for the Seed Cycling Pack?

  • Roasted Pumpkin seeds
  • Roasted Flax seeds
  • Roasted Sesame seeds
  • Roasted Sunflower seeds

Follicular Phase: Consuming the seeds with phytoestrogens can help balance estrogen levels (an essential element for women’s health), because phytoestrogens are a natural source of estrogen, so they can change estrogen levels in the body, helping to increase and decrease estrogen levels as needed. Additionally, seeds (and other foods) rich in omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce inflammation and control follicle-stimulating hormone levels in the body.

Pumpkin and flax seeds are rich in zinc and lignans, which often support estrogen production, help remove estrogen from the body and prepare the body to use progesterone secretion.

Sesame and sunflower seeds contain selenium, lignans and omega-6 fatty acids, which support liver function, correct hormone secretion, regulate estrogen and progesterone and reduce inflammation. In addition, sesame seeds contain zinc, sunflower seeds are high in vitamin E, which accelerates the production of progesterone.
