On today’s episode of The Superwoman Code, I’m chatting all about how burnout effects women specifically.

From the effect the HPA Axis has on our digestive system, to our hormones and to our sleep patterns, our body’s resiliency capacity can be tested in many different ways. The harder your body has to work to keep things on an even keel, the more likely you are to burn out.

To top it off, I’m sharing some of the research on Rhodiola and Ashwaganda (otherwise known as adaptogens) and their ability to decrease our perceived stress and serum cortisol levels, how magnesium can help your sleep quality and why vinegar is the missing ingredient to every single meal you’re eating.

You heard me right. Vinegar.




This episode is also the first of our Building A Superwoman Miniseries, sponsored by CanPrev Women. If you’ve ever been to the office, you might recognize their sister company Cytomatrix. This company is founded and run by an amazing woman, and is Canadian born and Canadian based. They also make great products, with proper dosing, and no BS. I’m thrilled they are helping The Superwoman Code bring the education to women to help you all make your health work for you, not against you.
