What Are Hormones?

Hormones are powerful chemical messengers that circulate through your bloodstream to specific target cells where they generate a wide range of biological responses. Think of hormones as the “prime movers” of your physical and emotional wellbeing. Hormones work slowly and over time, and affect many different processes such as growth and development, metabolism, sexual function, reproduction and mood. Hormones are very powerful and should never be underestimated nor should they be out of balance.

Every time you get angry, become tired, laugh, cry, have sex, wake up, feel hungry, or fall asleep your body is responding to hormones. That’s because hormone levels can impact virtually every major system and organ in your body.

The glands of the endocrine system, which are special groups of cells, make hormones. The major endocrine glands are the pituitary, pineal, thymus, thyroid, adrenal glands, and pancreas.

The testes and ovaries, or “gonads”, are perhaps the most familiar endocrine glands. In males, testes produce sperm and secrete the male sex hormone testosterone; in females, ovaries produce eggs and the female hormone estrogen. It is these hormones that determine secondary sex characteristics like muscle mass and facial hair. They also help to orchestrate sperm production, menstruation and pregnancy.

Other endocrine glands include the thyroid, pancreatic islets, and adrenal glands. These are involved primarily in growth, metabolism, and the “fight or flight” response to stress. Similar to neurotransmitter unbalances, a minor increase or decrease in hormone fluctuation can cause major changes in our cells and ultimately, our whole body.

The differences between female hormones and male hormones may not be as specific as you might think. The major female and male hormones can be classified as estrogens or androgens. Both classes of male and female hormones are present in both males and females alike, but in vastly different amounts. Most men produce 6-8 mg of the male hormone testosterone (an androgen) per day, compared to most women who produce 0.5 mg daily. Female hormones, estrogens, are also present in both sexes, but in larger amounts for women.

Estrogens are the sex hormones produced primarily by a female’s ovaries that stimulate the growth of a girl’s sex organs, as well as her breasts and pubic hair, known as secondary sex characteristics. Estrogens also regulate the functioning of the menstrual cycle. In men, estrogens have no known function. An unusually high level, however, may reduce sexual appetite, cause erectile difficulties, produce some breast enlargement, and result in the loss of body hair in some men.

Androgens are sex hormones produced primarily by a male’s testes, but are also produced in small amounts by the female’s ovaries and the adrenal gland, an organ found in both sexes. Androgens, specifically testosterone, play a role in the regulation of the sex drive. Large deficiencies of testosterone may cause a drop in sexual desire, and excessive testosterone may heighten sexual interest in both sexes.

The most noticeable areas of hormonal unbalance is reduced testosterone levels for men and estrogen production in women and this becomes more of an issue with aging. Aging, illness and certain cancer treatments can affect our bodies’ delicate hormonal balance, causing changes in many of our body processes where most notice this in the area of sexual interest and functioning. Familiar to most are the changes that occur when a woman goes through menopause. Estrogen production drops throughout this process as a woman exits her child-bearing years.

What is Menopause?

Menopause is a normal change in a woman’s life when her period stops.  That’s why some people call menopause “the change of life” or “the change.”  During menopause a woman’s body slowly produces less of the hormone estrogen and progesterone.  This often happens between the ages of 45 and 55 years old.  A woman has reached menopause when she has not had a period for 12 months in a row.

What are the symptoms of Menopause?

Every woman’s period will stop at menopause.  Some women may not have any other symptoms at all. Most women approaching menopause (perimenapause) or who are postmenopausal will experience hot flashes, a sudden feeling of warmth that spreads over the upper body and is often accompanied by blushing and some sweating. The severity of hot flashes varies from mild in most women to severe in others.

Other common symptoms experienced around the time of menopause include:

• Irregular or skipped periods
• Insomnia
• Mood swings
• Fatigue
• Depression
• Irritability
• Racing heart
• Headaches
• Joint and muscle aches and pains
• Changes in libido (sex drive)
• Vaginal dryness
• Thinning of bones
• Bladder control problems

Not all women get all of these symptoms.

What is Andropause (male menopause)?

As men approach middle age and beyond (40 and older) they may experience a phenomenon similar to female menopause, called Andropause. Unlike women, men do not have a clear-cut external signpost to mark this transition, such as the cessation of menstruation. Both menopause and andropause, however, are characterized by a drop in hormone levels. Estrogen in the female, testosterone in the male. Resulting bodily changes occur gradually in men and may be accompanied by changes in attitude and mood, fatigue, a loss of energy, sex drive and physical endurance.

What’s more, studies show that this decline in testosterone can actually put men at risk for other health problems such as heart disease and weak bones. Since all this happens at a time when many men begin to question their values, accomplishments and direction in life, it’s often difficult to link the changes that are occurring to more than just external conditions.

Unlike menopause, which generally occurs in women during their mid-forties to mid-fifties, men’s “transition” may be much more gradual and spread over many decades. Attitude, psychological stress, alcohol abuse, injuries or surgery, medications, obesity and infections can contribute to its onset.

Although a decline in testosterone levels will occur in virtually all men as they age, there is no way of predicting who will experience Andropausal symptoms of sufficient severity to seek medical help. Neither is it predictable at what age symptoms will occur in a particular individual. Also, each man’s symptoms may be different.

Andropause is the time in a man’s life when the hormones naturally start decline usually during their late forties or early fifties. This decline continues into the eighties. Many have questioned whether the male menopause is more myth than reality. The Andropause is a gradual process and not exactly the same as menopause. However, like women undergoing menopause, the decline in hormones in men result in them suffering from symptoms of the Andropause. However, like the menopause, symptoms of Andropause can vary from person to person.

What are the symptoms of Andropause?

Between the ages of 50 to 70, some men report symptoms such as erectile dysfunction (failure to achieve an erection), general tiredness, mood changes, night sweats and sometimes palpitations. Most men attribute erectile dysfunction to be the most significant event of the Andropause. Apart from erectile dysfunction, mood changes can take place too. Some men complain of nervousness, irritability and even depression. Others undergoing andropausal changes report having feelings of wanting to be closer to family and friends. In the andropausal years, men take on a more “maternal” role, as if transitioning to become more motherly than fatherly. It is interesting that many men do not sense these changes in themselves, but rather it is women that notice this change.

In andropausal men, night sweats and palpitations occur because of an overactive autonomic system in response to falling testosterone levels. To assess for hypogonadism, which is in part the clinical basis of the andropause, the doctor will check for physical signs in men including hair loss particularly in the armpit and genitalia.

The keys symptoms include;
• Lack of energy
• Low sex drive and difficulty getting erections or erections not as strong as usual
• Depression
• Irritability and mood swings
• Loss of strength and muscle mass
• Increased body fat
• Hot flashes and night sweats

The Renuva Connection

Amino acids are the raw materials for making neurotransmitters and a range of vitamins and minerals are co-factors or precursors necessary for their production. There are about 28 amino acids used in the body. The liver manufactures about 80 percent of them, while the remaining 20 percent must be obtained from our diet, hence their name ‘essential amino acids’. The essential amino acids are derived from proteins, and studies have shown that diets deficient in protein will lead to lower neuropeptide levels and consequent health problems.

There is a long, well documented, history of using amino acids like those found in Renuva Generator for issues related to neuropeptide imbalances.  Discovered in the early 1900s, amino acids were used up to the late 1980s as the physician’s mainstay for treating different physical and mental conditions.  While the advent of pharmaceutical medications all but eliminated this natural treatment option, amino acids like those found in Renuva Generator have continued to be a popular option for complementary / alternative medicine modalities and are essential for those seeking natural methods for balancing both neurotpeptides and hormones.

As we age, neuropeptide production for both men and women begins to decrease. When this decline occurs it has a negative impact on our bodies, how we feel and how we function. Renuva Generator helps lessen this decline and associated symptoms by supporting healthy neuropeptide balance naturally and without drugs.
