Thyroid issues, low testosterone, adrenal fatigue, estrogen dominance and other hormonal related problems can be solved by including certain healthy fats in the diet. The five essential fats to naturally balance hormones in the body are:

Omega 9

Found in avocado, almonds and olive oil are very helpful for proper hormonal balance. You also get supplements in form of capsules rich in Omega 9.

Short Chain Fatty Acids

These types of fatty acids can be found in butyrate, which is the primary energy source for the alimentary canal. They help in producing vitamins like Vitamin K2 and Vitamin B12 which support hormonal stability. The sources of these fatty acids are grass-fed dairy products like yogurt and ghee.
