Supplements For Your Hypothalamus

by | Last updated: Feb 27, 2023 | Hypothalamus | 2 comments

Can you balance your hypothalamus with nutritional supplements? Science says yes. Let’s find out how. 

Your hypothalamus is dependent upon your nutritional status. Since it’s not protected by the blood-brain barrier, your hypothalamus receives micronutrients, amino acids and fatty acids via the bloodstream, utilizing these essential nutrients directly to orchestrate your symphony of hormones, neurotransmitters, and immune factors. Your hypothalamus needs specific nutrients for proper functioning, and a dysfunctional hypothalamus needs even more which is why it can be difficult to get enough specific hypothalamic nutrition from diet alone. That’s where supplementation comes in.

Hypothalamus supplements can help ensure your hypothalamus is functioning optimally. And that’s important since your hypothalamus controls all of your body’s vital functions including: digestion, detoxification, growth, repair, sleep, sex drive, reproduction, stress response, metabolism, body composition, immunity, healing, cognition, learning, memory and moods. Plus your hypothalamus controls what amino acids reach the brain to utilize for neurotransmitter production.

Research shows that hypothalamic neuronal health is very susceptible to nutrients. And we know that hypothalamic inflammation leads to the development and progression of diseases like obesity, insulin resistance, and altered glucose metabolism and metabolic disorders. 

What nutrients does your hypothalamus need?  

#1 Amino Acids

Your hypothalamus needs specific amino acids for proper functioning. Studies show that circulating amino acids affect hypothalamus performance and control of many functions. The amino acids your hypothalamus needs are the same amino acids that the rest of your body needs except in a different balance. Your hypothalamus is particularly sensitive to branched-chain amino acids, but it needs all of the essential amino acids – those that your body cannot manufacture – and it needs extra doses of non-essential amino acids – those that your body can make – because often you don’t get enough from your diet alone. 

#2 PUFAs 

Your hypothalamus needs polyunsaturated fatty acids known as PUFAs. Science has shown that the hypothalamus can grow and repair its own neuronal tissues with the help of PUFAs. Sea vegetation is rich in PUFAs as omega 3 rich polyunsaturated fats make up a significant part of seaweed lipids. Green plant foods are also known to have a relatively high proportion of omega 3 rich PUFAs. 

#3 Phytonutrients

Your hypothalamus utilizes plant-derived micronutrients to orchestrate its neuro-immune-endocrine functioning. Plant-based nutrients known as phytonutrients help modulate the communication between the hypothalamus, pituitary and lower endocrine glands like the HPA axis as well as the thyroid and gonadal axis. Hypothalamic phytonutrients come from herbs, sprouts and sea vegetation. 

So how can you get all of this vital hypothalamus nutrition – amino acids, PUFAs and phytonutrients?

Even if your diet is pristine, it can be difficult.  That’s why I created Genesis Gold®. Genesis Gold® is rich in hypothalamic amino acids, omega 3 PUFAs from sea vegetation, sprouted grains and legumes, as well as phytonutrient-rich herbs and whole plant foods that specifically feed the hypothalamus to optimize its functioning. 

Taking Genesis Gold® daily can help to balance your hypothalamus and optimize its functioning which helps balance your hormones and neurotransmitters and optimize your immune function, plus optimize your digestion and detoxification. By providing your hypothalamus with the exact nutrients it needs for optimal functioning, Genesis Gold® helps balance your moods, improve learning and memory, maintain proper weight and body composition, optimize glucose metabolism to reverse insulin resistance, improve hormonal function of the thyroid, adrenals, pituitary, and gonads. Supporting your hypothalamus with Genesis Gold® is a gift you give yourself for optimal health.
