It's easy to think that only women suffer from hormonal imbalance, but that's not the case. Men can also get hormonal disorders. Usually, the problems increase as the man gets older and are associated with aging. Hormonal imbalance can be difficult to deal with, especially if you do not understand what is happening in the body.

What are hormones?

Hormones are chemicals in the body that are produced by the endocrine glands (hormone glands). The hormones move through the body and regulate functions such as appetite and digestion, sleep patterns, mood, sex drive and fertility.

Hormonal imbalance

When the body produces too much or too little of a hormone, we suffer from hormonal imbalance. Temporary imbalance is not dangerous in itself, but in the long run it can affect health negatively.

What hormonal imbalances affect men?

Testosterone is the hormone most associated with male hormonal health along with cortisol, insulin and thyroid hormone. If any of these become unbalanced, it can result in, for example, male menopause, adrenal fatigue or problems with the thyroid gland.

Symptoms of hormonal imbalance

Everyone experiences fluctuations in hormones from time to time. Usually there is no danger with some imbalance now and then. But if you suspect something is wrong, these symptoms may be good to keep an eye on.

  • Sudden weight loss
  • You sweat more than usual
  • Difficulty sleeping and headaches
  • Dry skin or rashes
  • Worry, depression or anxiety

    6 tips for a balanced hormonal system

    Hormonal imbalance is very common in today's pressured society. We don't always have time to exercise or eat as well as we would like. But there are a few things you can do to help your hormonal system along.

    • Physical activity - Exercise helps the body regulate insulin levels and balance the hormonal system.
    • Choose healthy food - Avoid too much sugar and fast carbohydrates. Elevated sugar levels in the blood can lead to obesity, which in turn is harmful to the hormonal system.
    • Stress less - Prolonged stress can cause disturbances in the hormones cortisol and adrenaline. Try to take breaks during the day and do things you enjoy that help lower your stress levels .
    • Healthy fats help - High-quality healthy fats found in fatty fish, avocados, olive oil, eggs and nuts can actually help balance the hormonal system. The fats can counteract insulin resistance, and thus regulate appetite.
    • Eat enough protein - Protein contains essential amino acids that help bones, skin and muscles function properly. Protein also affects the hormone that regulates appetite.

    • Help the body with nutritional supplements

      With age, men's production of testosterone naturally declines. For men who want to maintain their activity level and continue to perform at a high level, it can be difficult to know what to do to take care of the body in the best way. A+ Man Boost works for muscle health and energy metabolism but also to maintain normal testosterone levels in the blood.

    The body's functions change as we get older. Sleeping habits, sex drive and energy levels may be different. But what many people don't know is that the changes can be due to hormonal imbalance.
