What are hormones?
Hormones are chemicals made by glands that travel through the bloodstream and bind to receptors on or inside cells. For proper function, each hormone must fit its receptor like a key in a lock. When the key and lock don’t fit exactly, health problems can result. This is why your body’s own hormones (or bioidentical hormones) are better than synthetic, foreign ones.
Hormones are the language that cells use to communicate. They play a role in:
- Growth, development, & reproduction
- Repair of skin, muscle, & bone
- Immune system function
- Blood sugar regulation
- Overall energy level
- Brain function & mood
When you consider that hormones are involved in nearly everything that goes on in your body, it’s no wonder that an imbalance in hormones can cause so many health problems.
