Hormones play a big role in maintaining lifelong health. Even the healthiest individuals may suffer symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Examples of this include fatigue, weight gain, and mood disorders. An imbalance in just one hormone is able to initiate catastrophic events on one’s health. Thus, a hormone assessment is important for improving one’s quality of life.
One way to affect hormone health is to introduce micronutrients into one’s system. Micronutrients are the building blocks of many hormones and affect many hormone regulators. Commonly referred to as ‘vitamins and minerals,’ these are required in small amounts but drastically help our bodies. They also help detoxify metabolies that may cause common cancers in the ovaries, prostate, and breasts.
Micronutrients can aid hormone balance in a variety of different ways, such as:
- Weight Gain
- Dry Hair/Skin
- Disease/Cancer Prevention
It is difficult to achieve hormonal balance with little micronutrients in one’s system. Regulatory, steroid, and thyroid hormones are all affected by micronutrients, and impact our mood, metabolism, and reproductive health. As we age, it is vital to maintain a steady flow of micronutrients to keep up our hormone levels.
