Before meeting this woman, I had never seen the pairing of nutrition and understanding our menstrual cycle and how our hormones change before. Alisa Vitti is a functional nutrition and women’s hormone expert and the founder of the modern hormone healthcare company Flo Living. If that rings a bell, it’s probably because you’ve heard of her book In The Flo. She also wrote the book WomanCode and the creator of MyFlo, the #1 paid period app on the app store. When she realized that — despite having more content around women’s hormones and more access to that information — women’s health was getting worse instead of better, she needed to get to the root of why that was, and that led her to the discoveries that she’s put in her books.
