Your current hormonal phase

Based on your answers, you are likely in the premenopausal phase. This life phase is characterized by regular (or sometimes irregular) hormonal cycles and extends from the age of 20 to the first hormonal changes of perimenopause.

To get a clearer idea of where you are, it’s important to track your menstrual cycle now. The earlier you begin, the easier you'll recognize when your usual monthly rhythm changes and can respond accordingly. Perimenopause typically starts in your 40s so it’s good to keep an eye on things wherever you are now.
In premenopause, how can you best take care of yourself? Let’s dive in! 

Top Tips

For premenopause

Did you know your body needs different nutrients more during the phases of your cycle? During your period, a diet rich in iron is beneficial. In the follicular phase, light and fresh dishes such as salads and fermented foods are ideal for your gut. Ovulation and the beginning of the luteal phase favour anything that is good for the liver and detoxification. Cruciferous vegetables and bitter substances found in kale, broccoli, bitter greens, onions, garlic, radishes or even bitter drops and plant extracts like those in Peri Balance are a good choice.

As you approach your period, complex carbohydrates with their B vitamins, omega-3s, and magnesium-rich foods become more important. Incorporating sufficient plant-based proteins and micronutrients, like Vitamin D and magnesium, into your diet is important for strong bones and muscles.

Step by Step

Gradual changes are the most successful. Focus on the most important step first. By the way, our name XbyX is composed of 'XX' for the female chromosomes and 'Step by Step' for the gradual optimisation of nutrition and lifestyle. Quite fitting, isn't it? 😊

Your priority

Healthy skin, hair & joints

As self-confident women we don't define ourselves solely by our appearance. However, radiant skin and silky hair reflect our inner health and, let’s face it - we still want to look and feel good! All too often, hormonal changes, medications, stress, sleep and nutrient deficiencies take a toll on our skin, hair and joints.

As we age the moisture regulator, oestrogen, decreases. It used to ensure plump skin and hair, elastic tendons and ligaments, as well as well-lubricated joints. With age, we see a decrease in the structural protein, collagen (providing firmness), the levels of elastin (elasticity), hyaluronic acid (moisture regulation), certain vitamins and keratin (protection and stability).

Our recommendation

Beauty Bundle

The Beauty Bundle is designed to enhance your beauty from within. It includes essential nutrients for skin, hair, nails and joints, along with a comprehensive Beauty Guide filled with effective beauty secrets.

Top Tips

Healthy skin, hair, and joints

1. Ensure you avoid hormone disruptors: Use BPA-free products, steer clear of canned foods, store food in glass or stainless steel containers, clean with vinegar and baking soda and check cosmetics using the Code Check App.

2. Eat the rainbow: Defy all these challenges with a mix of healthy nutrition, lifestyle and targeted micronutrients! Consume a colourful and diverse diet, cultivate a diverse gut flora with healthy bacteria, protect yourself from inflammation and improve your skin complexion.

Daily consumption of plenty of fresh vegetables, probiotic dairy products or alternatives, fibre, healthy plant oils and proteins will make your skin glow. Including fruits, vegetables, and spices allows you to enjoy all the antioxidants you might need.

Follow the Mediterranean diet as a guideline. It provides numerous bioactive nutrients: mostly plant-based foods, fish, seafood, olive oil, occasional low-fat dairy, few eggs and minimal meat. Our SIMPLE 7 concept translates the essence of the Mediterranean diet into your daily meals. It's without complicated rules and dogmatism – simply based on seven food groups.

3. Avoid sugary, fatty food and stress-inducing factors: Industrial junk food can contribute to a dull, uneven complexion. Ensure you get enough sleep, drink plenty of water and actively reduce stress through self-care, mental health care or exercise.

4. Dietary supplements: Alongside this healthy lifestyle, you can promote collagen production with a collagen supplement like XbyX Collagen Kick. It can help maintain and rebuild collagen stores in the body. You can also consume nutrients daily that support natural collagen production, including vitamin C, biotin, zinc, copper, selenium and manganese. Selenium can be found in Brazil nuts, tuna, sardines, mushrooms, cottage cheese, eggs and legumes like soy. Biotin is present in eggs, salmon, tuna, meat, almonds, sunflower seeds, sweet potatoes and broccoli.

By the way: the collagen in XbyX Collagen Kick is sourced from eggshell membrane, produced in a sustainable, circular economy. That's why many vegans also incorporate it into their diet.
