Hormone Imbalance and Metabolism

With warmer weather approaching, everyone is looking forward to getting outside for hiking, biking, jogging, and other outdoor activities.   If your hormones are out of balance, you may find that you don’t have the motivation or energy to exercise in order to regulate your weight.  And with a slower metabolism, you are a prime candidate to have an increase in belly fat.

There are several hormones that can inhibit a healthy metabolism, such as testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone.  Low testosterone can cause fat storage and, along with low estrogen, can increase sugar cravings.  Progesterone helps our bodies turn to sleep well and have energy.  An imbalance here can lead to overeating.

Women who use HRT typically experience fewer problems with weight gain and body fat redistribution.  Through Hormone Replacement Therapy, you may be able to rebalance your hormones and get your weight loss back on track.  In addition, our weight loss products are made of vitamins, amino acids, and lipotropic agents to give you energy, increase your metabolism, and help with fat breakdown.
