Daily Wellness Company - Asensia Youthful Hormone Balance - 90 Capsules
Daily Wellness Company Asensia naturally supports the body to achieve a Youthful Hormone Balance. Similar to testosterone for men, progesterone is a woman's youth hormone but declines precipitously with age.
ASENSIA BALANCES PROGESTERONE – WHY IT'S SO IMPORTANT
Progesterone is the major steroid that is secreted primarily by the corpus luteum and the placenta. It is a naturally occurring steroidal hormone in a woman's body. Progesterone acts on the uterus, the mammary glands, and the brain as well as other parts of the body. Progesterone exists in nearly all cells of a woman's body and has multiple effects and functions. While its purpose in pregnancy is vital; it is required in embryo implantation, pregnancy maintenance, and the development of mammary tissue for milk production, it is responsible for many other important functions.
Given that progesterone controls a number of important functions in the female body it is vital that progesterone levels remain stable.
Progesterone levels vary depending on the menstrual cycle phase and menopausal stage. Levels are high during pregnancy and low in young girls and postmenopausal women.
The most important effects of progesterone in women include:
Mood and emotions
- When there is an imbalance of estrogen and progesterone levels, the production of serotonin is interrupted. Serotonin is a mood-regulating neurotransmitter that sends signals relating to emotional mood, appetite, and memory around the body. Consequently, a loss or imbalance of progesterone can result in unexpected mood swings.
- Progesterone hormones are neurosteroids that influence synoptic functioning; synapses are the structures in the brain by which neurons travel. Consequently, progesterone helps to improve brain functioning, especially memory and thought development processes.
- Progesterone also helps protect neurons. A drop in progesterone levels has the potential to cause brain damage.
Heart and liver
- Progesterone regulates blood clotting, which helps to maintain vascular and cardiovascular health.
- Progesterone helps stabilize levels of copper and zinc in the body and promotes liver health.
- Progesterone controls the production of estrogen, an excess of which can result in endometrial cancer. A balance of progesterone and estrogen is vitally important.
- Low levels of progesterone can cause infertility and increased risk of endometrial cancer.
- High levels of progesterone help to keep bones strong and resilient.
- Decreasing jaw bone density can lead to receding gums and the loss of teeth.
- A loss of bone density can lead to osteoporosis, a condition characterized by brittle, fragile bones.
- Progesterone reduces gallbladder activity, preventing gallbladder disease and promoting a healthy digestive tract.
- Progesterone increase levels of anti-inflammatory agents, which contribute to a healthy immune system.
- Progesterone aids in blood clotting and cell oxidation.
- Progesterone helps convert stored fat into energy.
Hormone Decline Due to Exposure to Endocrine Disruptors (ED) Accelerates Aging and its Effects
What Are Endocrine Disruptors?
Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that may interfere with the body's endocrine system and produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects in both humans and wildlife. A wide range of substances, both natural and man-made, are thought to cause endocrine disruption, including pharmaceuticals, dioxin and dioxin-like compounds, polychlorinated biphenyls, DDT and other pesticides, and plasticizers such as bisphenol A.
Endocrine disruptors may be found in many everyday products– including plastic bottles, metal food cans, detergents, flame retardants, food, toys, cosmetics, and pesticides. The NIEHS supports studies to determine whether exposure to endocrine disruptors may result in human health effects including lowered fertility and an increased incidence of endometriosis and some cancers.
How Endocrine Disruptors Act
Endocrine disruptors act via various receptors that alter the hormonal and other systems that enable the body to communicate with and respond to its environment.
Exposure in today's world can happen unknowingly early on in the lifecycle. In fact with the use of soy formula for babies, as early as infancy.
The problem is, exposure early in life only really becomes a problem when it later accelerates hormone decline. What does that mean? It means that for years you're exposed to ED's that are having an impact on you on the inside but may not be obvious to you on the outside. However as your hormones begin to decline the effects of ED's accelerate, causing both the decline and the appearance of symptoms that were not so obviously very clear either in how you feel or how you look.
Scientists believe there is a lag between the time of exposure and the manifestation of a problem or symptom whether it be health or aging. In other words, consequences of developmental exposure may not be immediately apparent early in life but be manifested in adulthood or during aging, creating or accelerating the natural decline of a woman's hormones.
