Testosterone in Men
Testosterone is the life source for the male body. It’s what makes a man a man. Without enough, you’ll feel like you don’t have enough gas in your tank. As men age, there testosterone levels can begin to lower, making them feel the effects of aging.
Estrogen in Men
Men need a little estrogen for heart, bone, and brain health. Men will convert a small amount of their testosterone into estrogen. Without an optimized testosterone level this relationship gets out of balance.
Healthy levels of DHEA are a “strong predictor” for longevity and a lower incidence of disease. It’s also the most plentiful sex hormone in the body.
The thyroid gland and its many associated hormones regulates metabolism, and can be thought of as the “traffic center” for your endocrine system. There are two types of thyroid hormones, T3 and T4. T4 is an inactive hormone that is stored and converted to T3 when needed. T3 is the active hormone and helps to regulate the bodies metabolism.
Cortisol is the hormone responsible for releasing adrenaline when you’re under stress. In small doses, this is a good—but too much cortisol is toxic.
GH is responsible for cell growth and repair throughout the body. Every cell, organ, and system within your body is impacted by this important hormone.
