~ Leptin
Do you have trouble controlling your appetite? You may have a leptin problem.
~ Human Growth Hormone
Human growth hormone (HGH) is the quintessential anti-aging hormone.

The thyroid hormone keeps you fit, provides energy, improves thinking abilities, boosts the immune system, decreases bad cholesterol, and lowers blood pressure.

Testosterone makes men masculine, but it is also present in small amounts in women, and aids libido in both genders.

Estrogen increases alertness, lowers body fat, protects against heart and Alzheimer’s disease, and more.

Progesterone reduces anxiety and has a calming effect on mood – it makes women happy.
