What is Seed Cycling?
PCOS is a hormonal disorder that affects women of reproductive age, and it can cause various symptoms such as irregular periods, excess androgen (male hormones), and ovarian cysts.
Seed cycling involves incorporating specific seeds into the diet during different phases of the menstrual cycle, with the goal of promoting hormonal balance. The typical seeds used in seed cycling are flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, and sunflower seeds. Here's how the seed cycling process is usually followed:
Follicular Phase (Day 1 to Day 14 of the menstrual cycle): During this phase, flaxseeds and pumpkin seeds are consumed. These seeds are believed to support estrogen production, which is usually lower during this part of the cycle.
Luteal Phase (Day 15 to the start of the next menstrual cycle): During this phase, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds are consumed. These seeds are believed to support progesterone production, which is essential for maintaining a healthy uterine lining and preparing the body for a potential pregnancy.
Will seed cycling cure PCOS? / Is PCOS cycling effective?
The nutrients found in the seeds used in this practice are known to support hormonal balance.
There is some evidence to suggest that seed cycling may be beneficial for women with PCOS. One study found that women with PCOS who followed a seed cycling diet for 12 weeks had a significant reduction in their LH levels. LH is a hormone that can promote the development of ovarian cysts, so a reduction in LH levels could be beneficial for women with PCOS.
What are the benefits of Seed Cycling?
The benefits that are often associated with seed cycling include:
Hormonal Balance: Advocates of seed cycling claim that the specific seeds used during each phase of the menstrual cycle can help promote hormonal balance. For instance, flaxseeds and pumpkin seeds are thought to support estrogen production during the follicular phase, while sesame seeds and sunflower seeds are believed to support progesterone production during the luteal phase.
Menstrual Regularity: Some individuals believe that seed cycling may help regulate menstrual cycles and reduce irregularities. However, there is limited scientific evidence to confirm this effect.
Reduction of PMS Symptoms: Supporters of seed cycling suggest that it may alleviate premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms, such as bloating, mood swings, and breast tenderness, by promoting hormonal balance.
Support for Fertility: Seed cycling is sometimes promoted as a natural way to support fertility by encouraging healthy hormone levels and menstrual regularity. However, there is insufficient scientific evidence to establish its effectiveness in this regard.
Nutritional Benefits: The seeds used in seed cycling, such as flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, and sunflower seeds, are rich in nutrients like essential fatty acids, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, which can contribute to overall health.
