Essential Human Hormones

HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE (HGH) – The growth hormone that is responsible for causing growth and repair of skin, kidneys, muscles, among other organs. Levels of HGH rise dramatically throughout puberty, peak around 20 years, and then begin to slowly decline. The anti-aging benefits of this hormone are believed to cause:

  • Decreases body fat
  • Increases muscle mass
  • Improves tissue healing and protein synthesis
  • Improvements in bone production
  • Quicker illness recovery
  • Increases capacity to exercise
  • Increases skin hydration and elasticity
  • Improves sense of well being
  • Increase in energy levels and vitality
  • Decreases incidence of illness
  • Thicker skin
  • Better sleep
  • Increase in lifespan


TESTOSTERONE – Men and women alike have testosterone, the a sex hormone, though males have higher levels. A sharp decline in testosterone should be taken seriously. Libido problems and impotency are associated with loss of this hormone. A number of anti-aging benefits are thought to be linked with testosterone.

  • Improves brain function
  • Increases energy
  • Increases strength
  • Increases bone density
  • Increases libido
  • Improves sexual sensitivity
  • Improves sexual function
  • Increase in red blood cells
  • Better mood and feeling of contentment
  • Increased bone strength
  • Decrease in fatigue
  • Improves HDL and LDL levels
  • Improves cardiovascular health


DHEA – Sometimes refered to as “the mother of hormones,” DHEA is the most abundant hormone in the human body and serves many different purposes. It is an important factor in the production of other hormones such as progesterone, testosterone, and estrogen. It is an immune system booster and may also be helpful in treating autoimmune disease. DHEA has several other possible benefits. Although you can buy it over the counter, there is a wide range of variations, purity and strength.

  • Improves neurological function
  • Increases sense of well being
  • Improves immune function
  • Improves stress tolerance
  • Increases metabolism


ESTROGENS – The female sex hormone is actually comprised of three hormones. Until the onset of menopause, the ovaries produce estrogen. There are a number of conditions associated with low levels of estrogen including arteriosclerosis, osteoporosis, and a decline in cognitive functions.

  • Decreased heart attacks and stroke
  • Stronger bones and increased thickness of skin
  • Decreases cholesterol
  • Lowers incidence of Alzheimer’s
  • Improves memory
  • Improves mucous membranes
  • Alleviates symptoms of menopause: headaches, mood swings, bloating, hot flashes, fatigue, waning libido
  • Increases life span


PROGESTERONE – The hormone of pregnancy

  • Protects against breast and uterine cancer
  • Protects against fibrocystic disease
  • Helps fat metabolism
  • Helps normalize blood sugar
  • Helps reverse osteoporosis
  • Helps thyroid hormone function
  • Acts as a natural antidepressant
  • Protects against nervousness
  • Protects against anxiety and irritability


PREGNENELONE – The gateway hormone. The body uses this hormone to produce DHEA, testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen. Sufficient levels are important to cognitive ability.

  • Stress reduction
  • Lessening of arthritic inflammation
  • Cognitive maintenance
  • Repairs brain and nerve tissue
  • Enhances many brain functions
  • Reduces aging skin
  • Improves sense of well being and mood
  • Increases energy and mobility
  • Improves sleep quality
  • Reduces harmful stress effects
  • Reduces aging brain deficiencies


THYROID – The hormone of metabolism

  • Increases energy
  • Increases fat burning, and controls weight
  • Increases your heart rate
  • Increases your appetite


INSULIN – The hormone of storage

  • Responsible for getting blood sugar into all cells
  • Increases fat storage
  • Increases risk of diabetes, hypertension and stroke


MELATONIN – The hormone of sleep. Melatonin responsible for maintaining the internal clock

  • Responsible for maintaining sleep
  • Helps alleviate “jet-lag”
  • Improves reaction to stress
  • Better sense of prosperity
  • Improves the immune system (by decreasing cortisol)


CORTISOL – The hormone of stress

  • Responsible for responding to stress
  • Helps protect you against your environment (allergens)
  • Mobilizes energy, improves fatigue
  • Increases your appetite for sugar
  • Decreases bone mass, muscle mass, and slows down your metabolism
