Hormonal imbalances are often a direct cause of stress.

Well, because all of these help the liver metabolize and reduce estrogen.

An excess of sodium causes our body to retain excess water and especially when you consume it post sundown. So, if you don't want to wake up with a swollen tummy and puffy eyes, then no salt post 8 pm. Capiche?
