WHAT ARE HORMONES?
Hormones are powerful chemical messengers that circulate through your bloodstream to specific target cells, where they generate a wide range of biological responses. You might think of hormones as the "prime movers" of your physical and emotional well being.
Every time you get angry, become tired, laugh, cry, have sex, wake up, feel hungry, or fall asleep your body is responding to hormones. That's because hormone levels can impact virtually every major system and organ in your body.
HOW DO HORMONES AFFECT MY WELL BEING?
(estradiol) modulates the course of both the menstrual cycle and
menopause, and proper levels support well being during menstruation.
Estrogen imbalance can trigger or worsen symptoms of premenstrual
syndrome (PMS). In addition, monitoring estrogen replacement therapy
is crucial to ensuring proper estrogen levels. Progesterone, along
with estrogen, plays a major role in shaping a normal menstrual
cycle and imbalances have been linked to PMS. Adequate, but not
excessive, levels of progesterone are also crucial for women during
menopause, especially for those undergoing hormone replacement
the most abundant hormone in your bloodstream. Although the complete
scope of its function is not yet fully determined, DHEA seems to
balance the effects of cortisol, by improving the body's ability to
cope with stress. While cortisol primes your body, giving it the
energy you need to respond to stress, DHEA protects your body from
the "wear and tear" of stress. DHEA also provides the source
material for the production of important sex hormones. DHEA levels
should be closely monitored when supplementing, however, to prevent
potentially harmful imbalances.
