We’re arguably often guilty of failing to pay as much attention to our hormone health as we should. After all, your body secretes around 50 hormones, which – together – profoundly impact on some of the body’s most crucial functions, ranging from mood and appetite to sexual activity and heart muscle contraction.
To maintain the very best physical, mental and emotional health, then, you have to do the right things for your hormones. But what are the steps you should take?
Introducing hormones – and why they’re important
A good way to think of hormones is as chemical messengers in the body. Your endocrine glands produce these molecules, which then travel to other parts of your body via the bloodstream.
Good hormone health is characterised by your body routinely producing the levels of each hormone that are necessary for functions like those mentioned above.
Sometimes, however, due to factors like ageing or unhealthy lifestyle habits, there may be too much or too little of certain hormones in your bloodstream. These are hormone imbalances, which – even when they are only small – can have a range of undesirable implications elsewhere in the body.
