But the truth is, Breast cancer causes a mere fraction of deaths compared to almost all other forms of cancer, and just a tiny fraction of the number of deaths heart disease cause each year.

How Estrogen Decreases Plaque Buildup that causes Heart Attacks

How Estrogen Decreases Plaque Buildup that causes Heart Attacks

When your heart pumps... Your blood vessels NEED to EXPAND. They expand by the elastic tissue that is inside the blood vessels and this elasticity is maintained by Estrogen. When the vessels can expand with each beat of the heart, your blood pressure remains low and normal. This benefit of Estrogen is why women have lower risk of heart disease than men. Our Estrogen helps maintain this elasticity.

How Sex Hormones, Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone, play important roles in body weight

How Sex Hormones, Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone, play important roles in body weight

 

Our Sex Hormones, Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone, all play a part in maintaining our body weight and youthful figure.

Sex Hormones play a part in our metabolism, appetite, blood sugar control, muscle mass, and even sleep, which in turn effects our weight and body mass index.

Estrogen effects how well our bodies utilize sugars and starches. As your Estrogen declines, your body is less efficient at metabolizing sugars and starches and therefore a lower carbohydrate diet is more successful as you get older. This is also the cause of the MIDsection weight gain.  

Estrogen and Progesterone together play a roll in your insulin levels. 
Premenopause phase (up to 10 years before menopause), brings about Estrogen dominance, which then causes an increase release of insulin. Elevated insulin levels result in our muscles becoming resistant to insulin, which in turn can bring about pre-diabetes, and difficulty controlling sugar cravings.

Estrogen dominance also causes our thyroid hormone to be less efficient. This means that your thyroid hormones may measure completely normal in blood work, but the function of it's ability to burn calories is reduced.

Progesterone also plays a part in weight gain by itself too. One of the ways is by it's effect on our ability to reach deep levels of sleep. Without adequate sleep, cortisol rises, which in turn causes weight gain.

And how about Testosterone? Testosterone decline causes a loss of muscle mass. This effects our energy levels because our energy level is based on how much ATP our Mitochondria make. The more muscle you have, the more ATP you make, and the more calories you burn.

All of these changes during midlife, result in increased fat storage, Increased difficulty losing weight and keeping the weight off.


Fortunately, research has shown that Hormone Therapy can increase your metabolism, help balance blood sugars, decrease sugar cravings, restore restful sleep, help maintain muscle mass, and thus help us maintain our weight and our figures.

About Young Hormones

Young Hormones line of skin creams and vaginal suppositories are formulated to include the finest bioidentical hormones available. These added hormones - Progesterone, Estradiol, Estriol and DHEA - are USP Grade* supplements. They are made bioidentical to human hormones from non-GMO, organic sources, then blended into a botanical cream or suppository which are also made from all-natural ingredients.

For our pump products, the result is an elegant, non-sticky, non-oily cream product in a stylish airless pump bottle that can deliver just the right amount of topically-applied cream each and every time.

Our suppositories are also completely amazing, with bioidentical hormones in organic triglycerides of saturated fatty acids and nothing else! No unwanted ingredients in our products!

Research has shown topical application is the safest and best way to supplement your Progesterone and Estrogen hormones! It's the best method for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) before, during, and after menopause.

For our cream-based Young Hormones, we provide a generous quantity of each in a beautiful bottle with a metered pump to deliver just the right amount each time. Each bottle contains 50 grams of product, which will typically last 2 to 4 months! Also, remember that topically-applied hormones only need to be about 1/4 the strength of ingested (swallowed) hormones for the same benefit because our products applied to the skin pass directly into the bloodstream without going through the destructive digestive tract.
