Estrogen is a vital hormone produced by a woman’s ovaries. Menopause occurs when the ovaries are no longer able to produce it. This leads to unpleasant symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats. In addition, a drop in estrogen levels can result in:

  • Decreased: Bone density, energy and libido
  • Problems with: Mood swings, fatigue, vaginal atrophy, vaginal dryness, incontinence, facial wrinkles, heart disease, strokes and menopause symptoms
  • Less: Skin elasticity, skin tone and static balance
  • Increased likelihood of: Depression, Alzheimer’s disease, urinary tract infections, cataracts, macular degeneration, colon cancer, osteoporosis, cognitive decline, memory loss and insomnia
  • Endangered: Cardiovascular system, skeletal system and brain


Progesterone starts to decline after the age of 35 and before menopause in most women. Low levels of progesterone can result in sleep alteration and/or insomnia, anxiety, nervousness, palpitations, mood alterations, a sense of not “feeling like yourself” and annoying hot flashes. Lowered progesterone levels can lead to:

  • Vulnerability of: The uterus, breasts (to cancer), cardiovascular system and skeletal system
  • Heightened possibility of: Osteoporosis, fibrocystic disease and depression
  • Less: Carotid artery health and bone density
  • Lowered: Sense of well-being and sleep


DHEA is the most common steroid hormone in the body. As with other hormones, our bodies produce progressively less DHEA as we age. DHEA has been proven to have many health benefits, while low levels have been connected to various life-threatening diseases. Depleted DHEA levels can cause . . .

  • Decreased: Energy, bone density and immunity
  • Enhanced likelihood of: Diabetes, depression, heart disease, erectile dysfunction, osteoporosis and atherosclerosis
  • Lowered: Mood and memory
  • Increased: Visceral fat and cholesterol


Testosterone is produced in both men and women. It enhances mental well-being and clarity of thought.  However, this hormone decreases with age, leading to depression, fatigue and poor muscle tone or endurance.  A lack of testosterone can result in:

  • Decreased: Bone density, strength and endurance, exercise tolerance, muscle mass, libido and sexual performance
  • Increased: Fat, cholesterol, intra media arterial wall thickness, diseases of aging and insulin resistance
  • Lessened: Lean muscle mass, healing and skin tone
  • Vulnerability to: Alzheimer’s disease, depression, osteoporosis, skin atrophy and tendon and joint degeneration
  • Weakened:  cardiovascular system, neurological system, muscles and bones
  • Lowered: Memory, sense of well-being, psychological status and sexual function


If your thyroid output is low, you usually won’t have much energy. You may have trouble losing weight and feel tired more often than usual. An under-active thyroid that is secreting little or no thyroid hormones can lead to:

  • Decreased: Energy, motivation, cognitive reaction, metabolism and ability to lose weight
  • Presence of: Weakness, cold hands and feet, thin skin, fragile hair, brittle nails and depression
  • Increased: Fatigue, weight gain, body fat, mental slowness and constipation


Melatonin is an endogenous hormone that works to maintain our natural circadian rhythm, which determines our wake and sleep cycles.  As we age, production of this hormone decreases.  A lack of melatonin often . . .

  • Disrupts: Sleep, immune function, energy and a positive mood
  • Decreases: Natural killer cells
