Why Your Health Depends on Your Hormones

Your body is an astounding machine full of intricate functions and chemical balances that make up almost everything about you. From essential functions like passively breathing and regulating body temperature to more intricate processes such as those influencing the efficiency of your various organs, the complexity of the human body means that there are a lot of ways your body can be both positively and negatively impacted. A common but often overlooked area of one’s health is their hormones and the hormone imbalances that may be causing their body to function suboptimally—necessitating the use of BHRT to even things out.

Despite their more well-known duties as your body’s sexual and reproductive hormones, estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone can affect your body far beyond the scope of your reproductive organs and functions alone.1 From testosterone’s effects on muscle-building and bone strength to estrogen’s positive effects on the brain, you’d be amazed at everything your hormones have a stake in.2

So, with that stated, a few examples of how balancing your hormones with BHRT can help your organs function to the best of their ability include:

Your Brain

As touched on above, a healthy balance of estrogen within your body has been shown to have positive effects on one’s brain and cognitive health. Moreover, the brain uses a variety of other hormones—such as the well-known pineal hormones melatonin and serotonin—to regulate a variety of brain functions.3

Your Heart

Meanwhile, BHRT and other hormone therapies targeted toward regulating testosterone have shown that the hormone can have a positive effect on the heart by widening healthy arteries and boosting muscle contractions.4

Your Skin

For the last example of your hormones’ effects on the health of your organs, the hormone progesterone has been shown to stimulate your skin’s oil glands. This, of course, isn’t inherently a good thing, as overstimulation can lead to inflammation and excessive oil buildup. That’s when BHRT is needed to create a healthy balance that will benefit your skin.5
