Sleep disturbances, hot flashes, poor memory, fatigue, depression and weak bones are just some of the signs of hormone imbalance.
What Are Hormones & How Do They Effect Your Health?
As chemical messengers, hormones are involved in many crucial functions in the body such as growth, fertility, metabolism and bone health. While testosterone is the major hormone in men that gives them gender-specific attributes, women predominantly have estrogen.
Testosterone levels start to increase at puberty, reach their peak in late teen years and begin to drop after the age of 30. Every year after this age, the levels of this hormone continue to decrease. The hormone controls everything from fertility, sexuality to bone mass and muscle strength. Low testosterone levels can also lead to mood changes, anxiety or depression.
The hormone boosts neurotransmitters which in turn promote tissue growth while being an important ingredient in protein synthesis. With low levels of the hormone, muscle building becomes difficult even with exercise.
Testosterone steps up bone density apart from boosting fat metabolism.
What Happens When There Are Low Levels Of Hormones?
As testosterone and estrogen control almost every function in the body, there can be wide-ranging symptoms when there are low levels of these hormones including:
- INCREASED BODY FAT
- POOR MUSCLE STRENGTH AND BULK
- DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY
- DIFFICULTY SLEEPING
- POOR BONE STRENGTH
- WRINKLES, SAGGING SKIN AND LOSS OF HAIR
- FATIGUE AND IRRITABILITY
- HOT FLASHES
- WATER RETENTION AND BLOATING
- INCREASED RISK OF HEART DISEASE
- REDUCED SEXUAL DESIRE
Low testosterone levels are linked to oxidative damage, poor nutritional status and sub- optimal liver function. Oxidative damage can cause wide-ranging illnesses apart from accelerating the aging process, cancers, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and Alzheimer’s. Declining levels of testosterone affect alertness and cognition, apart from leading to “metabolic syndrome” which is a term used to describe a combination of high blood pressure, cholesterol and excess abdominal fat.
