Do you suffer from a hormone imbalance?
Hormones are the chemical messengers in our bodies that travel through the bloodstream to our organs and tissues; they affect many of the body’s processes over time. Endocrine glands are the special group of cells that make hormones. Hormones are a dominant group of cells and it only takes a small amount to create significant changes in the body. Both men and women produce hormones in the same areas, except one, the sexual organs; additional male hormones are produced in the testes, whilst women’s are produced in the ovaries.
