The Science Behind Seed Cycling


Seed cycling is an easy and functional way to get nutrients in the body to help women rebalance their hormones. The routine uses four seeds.
1. Pumpkin
2. Flax
3. Sunflower
4. Sesame
Our blend combines these seeds for you to use in your daily routine. The blend correlates with what phase of the menstrual cycle you are in, follicular or luteal. The seeds in this combination provide the body with the essential nutrients needed to regulate Estrogen and Progesterone levels.

Our seed blend helps you be in control of your homones . . . instead of them controlling YOU! Contact us to learn more about how our seed blend can help in every stage of your life - from puberty through post-menopause.

Days 1–14 of Your Cycle


Days 1 – 14 of your cycle make up the follicular phase. This is the estrogen-dominant part of your cycle. Take 1 Tablespoon of Raw Organic Pumpkin Seed, and 1 Tablespoon of Raw Organic Flax Seed.

  • • These seeds are both rich in omega 3 fatty acids = healthy cell membranes.
  • • Flax seeds contain lignans = blocks excess estrogen in the first phase of your cycle.
  • • Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc = supports progesterone production and release for the second phase of your cycle.

Days 15–28 of Your Cycle


Days 15 – 28 are part of the ovulation stage, or luteal phase, of your cycle where your body shifts to progesterone production. Take 1 Tablespoon of Raw Organic Sunflower Seed, and 1 Tablespoon of Raw Organic Sesame Seed.

  • • These seeds are high in omega 6 fatty acids = decreases inflammation.
  • • Sesame seeds, which also contain lignans = block excess estrogen.
  • • Sunflower seeds provide the body with selenium = better liver detoxification process and thus overall hormonal balance.

Days 15–28 of Your Cycle


Days 15 – 28 are part of the ovulation stage, or luteal phase, of your cycle where your body shifts to progesterone production. Take 1 Tablespoon of Raw Organic Sunflower Seed, and 1 Tablespoon of Raw Organic Sesame Seed.

  • • These seeds are high in omega 6 fatty acids = decreases inflammation.
  • • Sesame seeds, which also contain lignans = block excess estrogen.
  • • Sunflower seeds provide the body with selenium = better liver detoxification process and thus overall hormonal balance.

Grinding the seeds helps to absorb the nutrients better in your body.

Refrigerating maintains the molecular structure of the fatty acids so you get the maximum benefit.

The easiest way to eat them is sprinkled in dishes such as smoothies, yogurt bowls, salads, and soups.

It usually takes about 3-4 cycles to see significant improvement in your symptoms.
