The key to everything is balance. If we are talking about hormones balance is even more important. A healthy and energetic body is exactly connected with harmony between various hormones.

If one part of the body is disturbed it can cause chaos. All body parts are one working organ connected to each each other.

Hormonal disorders can have a variety of symptoms. In women, it can lead to disorders of the menstrual cycle and increased nervousness. In men it often leads to erectile dysfunction and lack of energy. Hormonal imbalances are also one of the most common reasons for weight gain.

Hormones are controlled for the balance of the physical and mental parts of the body. The action of hormones is interdependent. For example, you cannot pay attention to estrogen by itself without paying attention to your thyroid hormones. The hormone system is also called the endocrine system and can be compared to a structure in which each hormone is like a separate stone. If just one of the stones falls out of place then the whole structure may be destroyed.

Hormone Imbalance :

  • Lethargic

Balanced Hormones :

  • Full of energy
