Hormone Support Supplements
Hormone supplements promote a healthy endocrine system and support many bodily functions.
Hormones are the body’s chemical messengers. They affect many bodily functions such as growth and development, metabolism, sexual function, reproduction, and mood. Hormones are made by endocrine glands. Some major glands in the body include the pituitary, thymus, thyroid, and adrenal glands. Women also produce hormones in their ovaries while men produce hormones in their testes. Sedentary lifestyles and Western diets may affect the hormonal environment causing hormones to fluctuate and lead many to feel “out of whack”. Some hormone levels naturally decrease with age, but it is important to maintain balanced hormones to feel your best.
Hormone supplements support a healthy lifestyle that includes a nutritious diet, regular exercise, good gut health, stress management, and good rest. Avoiding endocrine disruptors in the environment such as tobacco smoke, pesticides, fragrances, and many other chemicals is recommended.
