Harnessing Ovulatory Energy: Energy, Diet, and Confidence for Peak Performance

Harnessing Ovulatory Energy: Energy, Diet, and Confidence for Peak Performance


The Ovulatory phase is the peak of the female cycle where your energy is highest. This phase begins with a spike in luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone levels. Luteinizing hormone stimulates egg release (ovulation), which usually occurs within 24 hours after the spike begins. Estrogen level decreases during the time and the progesterone levels start to increase.


Embracing the Ovulatory Phase

It is divinely designed that we look and feel our best during the ovulatory phase in order to attract a mate to fertilize our newly released egg. Of course, the modern woman has many more things to accomplish, so we can utilize this increased energy to accomplish big energy tasks if trying to conceive isn't top of your list. Here are a few things to focus on during this phase.  

Movement: We can increase the intensity of our workouts during this phase. Interval training, lifting heavy, spin class, or an ambitious hike. Use this phase to increase stamina and really push your goals. 

Diet: Focusing on fermented foods and cruciferous vegetables. Both of these help to break down and metabolize estrogen and support your body as progesterone increases. Supplementing with OmegaGlow to support mood stability. Sesame and Sunflower seeds are the focus for seed cycling. 

 Be Bold, Have Fun: This is an optimal time to schedule big energy tasks; interviews, presentations, hosting parties or meetings. Or even socially planning a night out dancing or a weekend trip away. You'll have the energy to rise to the occasion, and feel like your most confident self. 



OmegaGlow is very supportive to the ovulatory phase and fertility. Omega 3's are such a crucial factor in mood-stability and optimal hormone health and over 68% of people are deficient. Our formula was specifically designed to support women with the highest quality Krill-sourced omega 3's, which help to reduce inflammation and increase blood flow to the uterus for healthy menstruation or improved implantation. It also helps to reduce menstrual pain and increase cognitive function. Who doesn't want all of that? So not only are we setting ourselves up for success during our 'bloom' phase but we're also supporting a healthy luteal and menstrual phase to follow.




FORTUNE FAVORS THE BOLD: Ovulatory Phase Challenge

  • This is a great time to try new things and challenge yourself to try something new. Whether it's trying a new workout or attending a class for a new hobby you've been thinking of, this is a great time to put yourself out there. 
  • Be spontaneous! Thinking you might want to try a new look or hop on a boat to the next city over? Do it!
  • Explore a new hiking trail or a neighboring city. Let your intuition guide the way. This is a great practice in learning to trust your inner voice. 
  • Practice saying NO! To anything that doesn't light you up and for no other reason. Forget obligations and "shoulds" If it isn't a solid YES, then it's a definite NO.


Let the Goddess in you rise and shine.
