Hormones play an integral role in the function of the human body. For both men and women, maintaining optimal levels of hormones is essential for mental and physical health. However, there are many ways in which these levels can waver and lead to issues, especially when the body begins to age.
While aging is an inevitable part of life, the complex systems in the body nonetheless experience unwelcome and often uncomfortable symptoms throughout the process. The endocrine system, which is responsible for the regulation of hormones, is both intricate as well as prone to issues when it ceases to run like clockwork.
A number of organs play a critical role in the endocrine system, including the pancreas, thyroid, pituitary glands, as well as the hypothalamus. When the system stops running correctly, the result can be a number of side effects that can lead to both physical issues as well as fatigue and even depression.
Just like with other anatomical systems within the body, the endocrine system runs in an intricate feedback loop, which is commonly referred to as “hormonal axes”. When hormones are at a certain level, they inform the brain as well as the glands and facilitate the regulation of functions within the body. When running properly, this loop allows for helpful interactions between the adrenal glands, the hypothalamus, and the pituitary glands. Known more specifically as the neuroendocrine system, this process is responsible, among other things, for the regulation of stress, digestion, sexual desire, moods, and the immune system.
