Hormone Regulation & Support
Hormonal regulation is a critical factor for maximizing performance, fitness, and overall health. Imbalanced levels of hormones can have devastating physiological and psychological consequences for men and women of all ages. Often times medical and pharmaceutical remedies using both legal and illegal procedures are employed as a means of correcting these issues. Unfortunately such procedures and protocols can illicit unwanted side effects oftentimes promoting the use of further medications or drugs to counter these effects. Even if these unnatural remedies are successful, consistent and continual utilization of these treatments are often necessary to avoid loosing any derived benefits. Furthermore the costs associated with hormone replacement and illegal ergogenic aids can be exorbitant to say the least.
Fortunately natural remedies using specific training modalities, dietary modifications, nutrition and sports supplementation, muscle re-education techniques, and lifestyle adjustments can produce similar if not superior effects on the body’s endocrine function and hormonal regulation. Understanding how various hormones including testosterone, IGF-1, growth hormone, estrogen, cortisol, and insulin work and react within the body as well as what factors can influence them is pivotal for optimizing their response.
Recent research in areas of pathology and endocrinology suggest that chronic inflammation and oxidative stress have an inverse relationship with optimized hormonal status. Excessive inflammation is not only linked to many if not all illnesses but such a state can have detrimental effects on testosterone and other anabolic hormones as well as magnify the negative consequences associated with cortisol, insulin, and estrogen. Improper training regimes and flawed dietary habits can produce excessive inflammation, adrenal fatigue, and cortisol ultimately leading to poor hormonal regulation, immune function, metabolism, and various health consequences. This is an important consideration for men and women of all ages and fitness levels.
