Your body’s hormones control most of your basic bodily functions. They serve as an internal communication system between cells throughout the body. They coordinate everything from digestion and growth to your appetite, immune function, mood, and libido. So, when your hormones are out of balance, even slightly, it can have a big impact on your health and well-being. Many women experience hormonal imbalances and never realize it. Male hormones regulate bodily functions and processes in men, so when they’re imbalanced, it can have serious effects on your body.
