The older you are, the harder it is to lose weight. You can eat right, exercise, and cut out sweets, but the scale doesn’t budge. Why is that? It may surprise you to know that it has a lot to do with your hormones.
Hormones play an integral role in health and wellness. They promote growth within the body and influence metabolism, organ function, energy, and weight management. There are many factors that can interfere with hormone production, including aging. As people age, their body may not produce adequate levels of hormones. This creates havoc with your ability to maintain a healthy weight, slowing metabolism and energy levels. And hormone balance can begin to change as early as your 20s!
The good news is that you can rebalance your hormone levels with targeted therapies. Bioidentical hormone therapy can effectively manage hormone imbalance. Sermorelin, a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH), can enhance overall health and well-being by stimulating the production and release of hormones by the pituitary gland. This kick starts your metabolism so that your weight loss efforts are more effective!
