Hormones constantly stream through our body affecting our energy, mood and metabolism. They are at the heart of weight-gain, mood swings, energy and our immune system
Hormones are chemicals that carry messages to cells that tell them what they need to do. They stimulate or can inhibit growth, they control our immune system and regulate our metabolism. They let us know when we’re hungry and prepare us to fight or flee. They begin at puberty, but in our later years, they also signal menopause and aging. When our hormones are actively working in concert and delivering the right messages to the right cells at the right time we experience improved mood, better muscle to fat ratio and just generally feel better. When our hormones are out of balance, it can impact our cognitive, cardiovascular and sexual functioning, create weight gain and as well as many other symptoms.
