Mood swings - who is responsible?

by andMe Bioactive Beverage 22 Nov 2021

[article] Ever felt extremely happy, extremely sad, extremely angry and extremely anxious in the same day, within a short span of time? Well.. we know the answer!

But do we know the reason of these mood swings? It is the hormones! Believe it or not, but hormonal balance plays a huge role in women’s health - be it physical or mental. Women’s bodies go through a hormonal rollercoaster every month. This roller coaster becomes even more severe during puberty, pregnancy and menopause.

mood swings

Let’s understand the role of different hormones on women’s moods and health:

1. Estrogen

It is group of hormones that play a huge role in emotional wellbeing (and other important things). It regulates neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine that are functional in mood regulation.

Estrogen increase the production of serotonin (the feel good chemical).


Fluctuating levels of estrogen can cause mood swings and irritability:

➼ High levels of estrogen along with low levels of progesterone can cause fatigue, anxiety or depression, weight gain.

➼ Low levels of estrogen can insomnia, decreased sexual desire, headaches.

2. Cortisol

Also known as the ‘stress hormone’, this hormone is responsible for out flight or fight response. We live hectic lives and often feel a lot of societal pressure to look, live or be in a certain way.

All of this puts us under unending chromic stress and our adrenal glands keeps on releasing cortisol. This can increase our blood sugar, blood pressure and can also cause depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions.

3. Thyroid hormones (T3 & T4)

T3 and T4 are mood regulators that also influence the metabolic rate in the body. They are directly associated with our energy levels and emotions.

4. Progesterone

This hormone plays a significant role in reproductive shifts and is also associated with increased amygdala sensitivity (the part of the brain that is associated with the fight or flight panic response).

Studies linked women with higher than average progesterone to be more likely to suffer from anxiety than those with lower levels.

Hormonal imbalances in women due to any reason can result in mood swings. We understand that mood wings might make you feel that you are totally out of control and hypersensitive to everything.

But you can maintain hormonal balance by practicing a few basic healthy lifestyle habits like:

➼ eating right
exercising regularly
 de-stressing by spending time with self and sleeping on time!

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
