If you feel absolutely terrible before your period. If your mood is all over the place and your sleep is disturbed, you can bet that the amount of sugar in your diet is having an effect on your hormones which cause these symptoms to manifest.
Insulin and Hormones
The most powerful hormone in the body is, you guessed it, insulin. Insulin and sugar are obviously intimately linked. Sugar causes insulin to spike and according to Dr. Sarika Arora
“this can lead to lower levels of an important protein known as sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). SHBG binds excess estrogen and testosterone in the blood, but when it’s low, these hormone levels increase. Insulin also increases the production of testosterone, which is then converted into even more estrogen by fat tissue in the belly.
These effects mean the ratio of estrogen to progesterone (known for keeping us calm and happy) is way too high, leading to irritability, anxiety, insomnia and more.”

Adrenal fatigue is the most common hormonal imbalance in women, probably because we do so much and are often under chronic stress. Adrenal health is pivotal for ensuring your hormones are working as they should. Sugar robs the adrenal glands of the nourishment they needs and creates even more stress in the body.
When you ditch the sugar you’ll soon realize not only does your body feel better but your mood will improve and dreadful PMS will subside.
