Have you ever wondered if hormonal deficiencies from mid-life onwards can contribute to accelerated ageing? According to Nutrition Medicine expert Dr Joe Mercola (USA), this is definitely the case. “Your hormones have far-reaching effects in your body, and hormone deficiencies can therefore wreak total havoc on your health….. One of the most commonly known hormone deficiency scenarios is menopause, with symptoms like hot flashes and mood changes….” Cognitive decline, depression and loss of bone density are other effects of ageing that are closely linked to hormone and nutritional deficiencies….”

To balance you hormones, address your DIET first. Alcohol and excess sugar decrease the levels of several important hormones. High-quality protein from meat and fish, as well as healthy fats such as egg yolk and butter, will improve hormone secretion, as will a healthy  unprocessed, nutrient-rich organic diet. Magnesium supplements, fat soluble vitamins (Vit A, D, E), fish oil and krill oil are all known to support hormone production in the body.  read more <…..>
