The glands in your body secrete natural compounds called hormones. Hormones travel through the bloodstream and at the cellular level have specific functions. The receptor inside or on the cells are responsible for helping the hormone attach to the cell. Each hormone has a “lock and key” fit for a specific receptor on the cells. The hormone has a functional effect on the cell when there is a perfect fit. Health problems can result if a hormone doesn’t fit well into the receptor at the cell. This is why your body’s own “bioidentical” hormones (natural hormones) are better than the synthetic hormones which are foreign to our bodies.
The cells in your body use hormones to communicate with one another.
Hormones contribute to the proper function of:
- Balanced moods
- A healthy immune system
- Balanced metabolism
- General energy levels each day
- Nervous system and your brain
- Growth, development, & reproduction
- Skin, bone and muscle repair
- Blood glucose regulation
- Sleep cycles
- Weight regulation and maintenance
Hormones participate in nearly every aspect of how well your body functions.
Imbalances of hormones can contribute to many common and preventable health problems and these imbalances can occur at any age.
As people age, their hormone levels decline.
With each year of aging, this process can accelerate. Because health declines with the loss of hormonal function as we age, many refer to hormone therapy as “anti aging” therapy. There are several key factors that influence hormones within the body, such as diet and lifestyle. If you are supplementing with hormones, bioidentical hormones are the best!
