As you’re only as healthy as your hormone levels, optimising hormone levels (along with exercise and good nutrition) is critical to good health!
Hormones influence our moods, thought patterns, (negative and positive) behaviours, appearance, and our ability to handle stress! Our bodies are sophisticated. All the systems of the body have specific roles to perform and they work together to keep us functioning at optimal levels. As we age, our glands and the parts of our brain that control our hormones deteriorate. The age-related hormone loss is programmed. It is natural, but it’s not good for us!
Your Key Hormone Players:
|Cholesterol||The starting point for the whole hormone process|
|Cortisol||Made from our adrenal cortex, high levels are associated with puffiness, high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease|
|DHEA||A steroid produced by the adrenals, DHEA has been shown to have cancer protective properties and lower heart disease and blood cholesterol. It has also been shown to improve memory, strengthen the immune system and prevent bone loss, reduce body fat and enhance libido|
|Oestrogen (1,2 and 3!)||E1 The most common form of oestrogen found in menopausal women and derived from hormones stored in body fat. It is the most cancer causing of the 3 oestrogens!|
|E2 Produced by the ovaries during a woman’s reproductive years. Optimising this hormone to regaining health and youth!|
|E3 The weakest of the three oestrogens, E3 has potential protective properties against the production of cancerous cells|
|Melatonin||Best known for regulating sleep. However, melatonin is a potent anti-oxidant for weight loss, increases energy levels and also a regulator of zinc.|
|Pregnenolone||Often referred to as the “parent” hormone, pregnenolone is synthesised from cholesterol. It is a super hormone responsible for brain functionality, performance and mood enhancer. It is known to be beneficial in improving concentration, fighting mental fatigue and relieving join pain and arthritis.|
|Progesterone||The ovaries and the adrenal glands in women and, in smaller amounts, in the testes and the adrenal glands in men, produce progesterone. Progesterone plays an important role in brain function, and is often called the “feel good” hormone because of its mood-enhancing and anti-depressant effects. Progesterone is especially beneficial because it keeps the other hormones in balance.|
|Testosterone||Testosterone works differently in men and women. However it plays a vital role in the overall health of both sexes. Known to be the “hormone of desire”, due to its powerful libido effect, testosterone is important in building strong muscles, bones, ligaments as well as increasing energy and reducing depression.|
|Thyroid||A thyroid hormone imbalance can result in a disruption to our metabolism and overall health.|
