Are Your Hormones Imbalanced? Common Signs

Hormones may be tiny, but they have a huge impact on your overall health and function. The chemicals produced by glands in your endocrine system travel through your bloodstream to organs and other tissues. 

Functioning as your body’s messengers, hormones let your organs know what to do and when. While your body is usually pretty good at regulating hormones, issues like aging and menopause can throw them off balance.
