7 hormones for a happy life
We are presenting you a female “hot hormonal seven”, from which our health, mood, appearance, sleep, appetite, will-power and even intellect depend!
The most well-known female sex hormone that makes a woman to be a woman. It is produced in ovaries. Due to estrogen, our figure gets lovely female circularities, and our character gets pliability, softness, emotionality. It quickens cells renewal, keeps skin’s youth, shine and thickness of hairs, protects vessels from cholesterol remains.
Excess of estrogen often leads to excessive plumpness of thighs and lower part of belly, development of uterus myoma (non-cancerous growth). Lack of estrogen leads to intensive hair growth on unwanted places: hands, legs, face, and also to quick wasting away.
Testosterone is produced in adrenals in small amounts and turns a sluggish doll into a lively and passionate lover of men. It makes us feeling sexual attraction, being persistent and purposeful, able not only to wait for a male to come, but also prepare traps for him, and some women even go hunting for him. The more testosterone woman has, the quicker she can pump full her muscles and the more she’s addicted to outdoor activity. Excess of testosterone makes woman’s character hasty and aggressive, blackheads appear on skin. If a woman feels deficiency of testosterone, she has no wish to make sex.
This is a hormone of tender long affection and care, it’s also produced by adrenals. In huge amounts it comes in blood after childbirth during uterus tractions, making us loving a tiny creature we gave birth to. Female organism produces oxytocinum , as a reaction to different stresses. That’s why we search for rescue from melancholy and anxiety feeding up our husband and children, taking care of an old lonely neighbor, taking home a stray kitten.
A hormone of figure and mind. It regulates speed of metabolism and thinking, and so, both plumpness and ability to think. It makes our body slender, skin - smooth, motions - adroit and graceful, reaction to man’s interested glance -immediate! It is synthesized in a thyroid gland, situated on the front surface of neck. Excess of thyroxin makes us growing thin. Thoughts are jumping, it’s impossible to concentrate, constant anxiety torments us, we cannot sleep at night, heart thumps and escapes from chest. Lack of thyroxin leads to adiposity, languor, drowse. Plus absolute frivolousness of mind and impairment of memory.
A hormone of courage and fury. It is produced in adrenals during stress. Many heard about its workmate – fear hormone that is responsible for escape from danger. So, noradrenalin induces us to the opposite; it enlarges vessels, blood rushes to a head, bringing brilliant ideas, face becomes rosy, wrinkles smooth down, eyes are sparkling, and a woman, looking like some stern and wonderful Goddess, says: “I’m blossoming because of stress!” She rushes to the attack against troubles, solves all the problems successfully and, with all that going on, looks wonderful and sleeps well at night. We wish all of you to have enough noradrenalin for overcoming any stresses!
A hormone of “sweet life”. It comes from pancreas, controls a level of glucose in blood. It’s insulin that breaks up all carbohydrates you ate, including sweets, and sends glucose (source of energy), taken from them, to the tissues. As a result, we’re satisfied and have powers to live.
Some women have little less insulin produced since birth or it’s not so active. When more farinaceous and sweet foods comes to organism, than insulin can process, surplus glucose starts “idling about” organism and severely damages all his cells and blood vessels. A disease of diabetes develops, the risk of having diabetes is high, if some of your relatives suffered from it.
A hormone of beauty and slenderness. It is produced in hypophysis, internal secretion gland, situated right in cerebrum. If you visit gym, do fitness and body-building, then, you probably heard of somatotropinum – an idol of sports instructors and body-building trainers. It’s responsible for the growth of muscles and fat burning, elasticity and strength of chords. By the way, including the ones those support breasts.
Excess of somatotropinum, in childhood and youth, leads to extremely high height. In grown-up age, nose, chin, bones of fingers are still growing. Natural abundance of somatotropinum hormone during pregnancy leads to some enlargement of features, feet, hands, but after childbirth all changes go away. Children’s lack of this hormone is fraught with stunted growth and full stop of growth. If you don’t have enough sleep constantly, overdo and overeat, then the level of somatotropinum will come down, bust will lose its shape and sag, and no intensive trainings and aerobics will repair the situation.
