ADVERTISING: Advertorial — HOLLY CARLING: Your Hormonal Puzzle: Crucial for health and energy

We have an amazing substance in our body called hormones. Hormones are regulatory substances that cause specific cells or tissues to do a prescribed function in the body. When most people think of hormones, they think of sex hormones (such as estrogen, progesterone or testosterone), brain hormones that effect moods (such as serotonin, norepinephrine/noradrenaline, GABA and dopamine) and hormones that affect blood sugar levels (such as insulin, cortisol, glucagon and others). These are only a few of the many hormones that control how healthy we are and how much energy we have. Often neglected is the quality of function of the glands and brain that produce or regulate these hormones.
