Hormones are biochemicals that regulate how the body functions.
When it comes down to it, they play a part in just about everything we do, experience and feel.
Hormones regulate everything—sex drive, sensory perception, sleep, stress, growth, mood and metabolism.
Many lifestyle decisions and diet factors contribute to hormone balance and adjusting a few simple elements of your nutrition and lifestyle can make big hormonal changes that enhance quality of life.
Let’s take a look at six tips that help your body’s endocrine system balance hormone production and release.
1. Lose Weight and Fix Leptin Levels
Leptin is an important hormone that balances your hunger.
When your leptin levels are disrupted, you often get uncontrollable hunger cravings.
Recent research proves that high leptin levels signal an increased risk for heart attack and cardiovascular disease.
Because leptin is secreted by adipose tissue (fat cells), one of the best ways to lower your levels is to lose weight.
Losing weight does more than just improve your health, it balances your hormones and improves your psychological state.
