The liver is our largest internal organ, and it is a powerhouse. Everything you eat has to get past your liver, and for a very important reason. The liver is a filter. It protects the body from chemicals and toxins. It also produces hormones, bile, protein, and cholesterol while storing vitamins and carbohydrates for when the body needs them. Having a healthy liver is paramount to good overall health. In this fourth article on hormone health, ASEA reviews the importance of antioxidants and the liver.

So, then, how do liver and hormones work together? Body-detoxing and hormone balance are linked. The toxins we are exposed to contain large amounts of estrogen, and without the liver, estrogen levels would spike. High estrogen increases the amount of fat the body stores and leads to obesity, changes in sex drive, and infertility. Testosterone and progesterone are also found in toxic chemicals, and an overabundance of either of these would put the body into extreme hormonal imbalance. …

In the last decade, our knowledge and understanding of hormones has increased quite a bit, and it is becoming more and more evident that environmental toxins have an effect on hormones. Endocrine-disrupting chemicals, also called EDCs, interfere with estrogen and its counterbalance progesterone. These hormones are essential for maintaining a healthy reproductive system. ASEA uses ongoing research in an effort to educate people to live their healthiest lives. In this article, ASEA reviews the impact certain chemicals have on the body.

Endocrine System

If hormones had a boss, it would be the endocrine system. This system is a network of organs and glands responsible for the production, storage, and secretion of hormones. Essentially, the endocrine system controls hormones, which in turn control all the functions in your body from metabolism to development to reproduction. …

In the first article, ASEA Reviews the role hormones and diet play in a person’s life and on their weight and energy level, and the link between diet and hormonal health. Hormones influence mood, what we think, how we feel, and what we do. They have an impact on weight gain, mental health and a myriad of other things. Some of the consequences of hormone imbalance include:

  • Depression
  • Weight gain
  • Anxiety
  • Low energy
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Thinning hair
  • Infertility

In this second article, ASEA reviews the effect glucagon has on insulin and how it can contribute to health. Insulin helps the body turn sugar into energy. It also turns unused sugar into fat and stores it away for later. Thousands of years ago, the human race depended on these fat stores to survive through harsh winters. Fortunately, today we don’t need those fat stores to survive. …

The human body is a marvel. Every minute that it is alive, tiny chemical messengers control the way a person feels and thinks, and even what the body does. These microscopic messengers are responsible for controlling organs and cells. What are these chemical messengers? Hormones. In this segment, ASEA reviews the impact healthy hormone balance has on the human body.

A Dance of Synergy

Balanced hormones dance a very intricate dance. When they are working together perfectly, synergy is achieved, and when this happens, the body reaps the benefits of optimum health and mental well-being.

But what happens when hormones don’t dance in sync? Imagine the utter chaos of a dance floor packed with people who are all crashing into each other. That’s sort of what hormone imbalance is like. Everything goes out of whack. Some of the consequences of hormone imbalance…

How Does Water Help Your Body?

With the changing seasons, it is easy to forget about drinking water. No one craves a nice cup of ice cold water when the north wind is howling. But drinking water is just as important as ever when the weather starts to change. Water affects our health, our immune system, and even the appearance of our skin, and as fall rides in, we want to stay healthy and strong . . . and why not look good at the same time?

An important thing to remember in the quest to stay hydrated is not all beverages are created equal. If you are consuming coffee, alcohol or soda, these do not count as your daily water intake. Caffeine, for example, gives a quick energy boost, but it also promotes dehydration, which will leave you feeling worse later on. You need to be sure to drink six to eight cups of water a day in addition to the other things you are drinking. …

As technology advances at an incredibly fast pace, so does our ability to understand the cellular makeup of the human body. Top medical researchers are realizing how important cellular health is, and how redox signaling molecules are vital to human life. In fact, scientists have discovered that an imbalance of redox signaling molecules plays a significant part in diabetes, cancer, and every other disease. It is believed that disease prevention and redox signaling are strongly interconnected.

What Is Redox?

Redox signaling is not new to science. It was discovered by a scientist a century ago, but with limited ability to study cells, it wasn’t until recently that redox signaling has been studied in depth. …

Your skin makes a strong first impression. So are you doing the things necessary to keep it healthy? Of course, the things you put on your skin can be good or bad for it, but so can the things you put in your mouth.

Diet and Skin

Studies have long linked the foods we eat to skin health. In fact, there is a link between acne in teens who consume fat-free milk. Another study shows a link between prenatal probiotic supplementation and eczema in infants — the mothers who took the supplement saw healthier skin in their babies. Low glycemic diets are tied to decreased skin problems like boils, psoriasis, acne, and eczema. …
