What Causes Hormone Imbalance?

In men and women, hormonal harmony and balance, the hallmark of a healthy body, are disrupted in a number of ways.

Unbalanced Lifestyle
Hormone balance is deeply connected to the food we eat, the exercise we get, the toxins we absorb and the stress level we live with. How these factors impact our hormone levels, and adrenal balance in particular, is crucial. The adrenal glands make key hormones that not only mobilize stress and immune responses, but also build and maintain bone, muscle, sex drive and function at any age. When the adrenals get run down, we get run down.

Growing Older
As reproductive function sputters with age, hormone levels fluctuate then decline, triggering hormone imbalances and Menopause and Andropause onset. An unhealthy lifestyle muddies the midlife picture by speeding hormonal decline.
