Tampa Bay Total Wellness is Florida’s first and leading Age-Management and Longevity center. Our hormone production in our body decreases with age starting as early as our twenties. Hormonal imbalance can have a profound effect on your life. A natural progression in the aging process is related to a decrease in hormone levels.
While we may initially think of estrogen and testosterone (the sex hormones) when we think of hormones, there’s a lot more to hormones than just those two. Hormones are responsible for just about every aspect of daily life, from sleep to digestion and metabolism, stress management and energy levels. As we age, some hormone levels naturally shift, which is why things like menopause and andropause happen in the first place.
When it comes to anti-aging techniques and longevity, the maintenance of adequate hormone levels throughout the body plays a great role in our ability to maintain optimal hormone levels, as well as produce the vital nutrients and functions that are required for long term physical and mental well-being.
To put it very basically, hormones control the speed at which we age. Decreases in hormones produced by various glands in the body causes bone loss, depression, anxiety, confusion, joint pain, restless sleep, loss of muscle mass, low sex drive and other symptoms we identify with as “getting old”.
