All About Hormones

Everything present in the human body has a role to play. The instructions that control and regulate these roles throughout the body are secreted in hormones. Hormones are chemical messengers that are present in the body. Much like the post man who delivers the mail,  upon stimulation of the coinciding hormonal receptor, hormones will then travel throughout the bloodstream to various organs and tissues, communicating what work needs to be fulfilled.

The endocrine system aka “hormonal system” is that which regulates the secretion of vital hormones and this is done through a variety of endocrine glands and organs.

hormones - all about them

What factors influence hormone levels to drop?

Hormone levels will experience shifts at different times in our life, but the most tragic are the hormonal deficiencies that begin to occur at midlife. It is anticipated that throughout life, most hormones will decrease with ageing. ¬†This is influenced by a reduction in the sensitivity of hormone receptors over time. Without healthy hormonal communication, the body suffers dramatically and one’s quality of life begins the inevitable decline towards disease and untimely death.

Ageing is not the cause of hormonal imbalance, it is rather the timing in one’s life that one begins to experience symptoms of hormonal deficiency. Midlife is where most hormone deficiencies are identified, but the good news is that¬†hormonal imbalance can be modified through the use of certain peptides.

Peptides have been shown to grant individuals with the opportunity to implement increased secretion of the hormones one needs to get their health back on track.

Hormones that decline with ageing

Oestrogen is a hormone that decreases with age and is an indication to most women that menopause and the corresponding symptoms of menopause is close at hand.

For men, testosterone levels will decrease with age, though it doesn’t occur so dramatically like in women with their estrogen depletion. Males will usually experience the reduction in testosterone over a more gradual span of time.

Growth hormone is another vital hormone that will decrease with age, leading to a reduction in both muscle mass and strength.

Decreased melatonin levels may contribute to the loss of normal sleep-wake cycles. The body requires adequate levels of melatonin into the later years of life for patients to benefit from sleep and its restoration of the body. This explains why, in the elderly, sleep is reduced. There simply is not enough melatonin to keep the sleep continuing into the night without frequent awakenings.

The Glands secrete the ‚Äúhormones‚ÄĚ into the body. All of these glands are in charge of specific jobs within the cells and organs with¬†which the hormones communicate.

How can peptides influence the hormonal system in your body?

Peptides have the ability to affect the glandular secretion of specific hormones – sending the messages to the body such as “Build Lean Muscle” ¬†or “Release Fat Stores”. ¬†Our peptide supplementation¬†section will outline some peptide¬†treatment objectives we cover. There is a wealth of information available to qualified registrants.

So how do hormones know where to go?

Hormones get circulated in the blood and as they do, they come into contact with a number of different cells. Target cells have receptor sites for hormones that are specific to them. These are located either on the surface of the cell or found inside the cellular wall. Much like the lock and key relationship on a door, these receptors specify what hormones are allowed entrance and which are not. Hormones that bind to a receptor will cause change in the cell which in turn influences the cellular function. Since hormones have an expiration date, timing is very important for optimal balance within the body.

What peptides can offer is the ability to strategize your hormonal influences within the body to suit your needs. Building more muscle, increasing your sex drive and enhancing your mood is all very possible with peptides. Especially due to the fact that peptides therapeutically administered go right to the source ‚Äď the bloodstream, therefore the liver doesn‚Äôt get first dibs. The communications are effectively relayed and the body reacts accordingly.
