Hormones are tiny messengers that circulate throughout the body and are responsible to help you with energy production, libido, metabolism, mood regulation, sleep and weight maintenance. Are your hormones in balance?
By far, one of the most important systems in the human body is the endocrine system. The endocrine system releases hormones that are involved in virtually every physiological and biochemical reaction that takes place in the human body. The three major hormone centers in the body, the adrenal glands, the male or female reproductive organs and the thyroid all function in chorus with one another to help your body stay in a relative state of equilibrium. As we age, our endocrine system slows down and we stop producing as many hormones as we did in our youth. Stress also is a major disruptor to our endocrine system and can also cause hormone imbalance. In either case, a myriad of symptoms can result which can be devastating to our health.
Some of the symptoms caused by hormone imbalance include: fatigue, weight gain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, low libido, hot flashes/night sweats in women, erectile dysfunction in men, hair loss and muscle and joint pain.
