Hormones are produced by nearly a dozen glands and organs known as the endocrine system. The endocrine system secretes hormones into the bloodstream, where they travel throughout the body. Hormones act as chemical messengers and are responsible for relaying critical information to regulate the activity of your cells, tissues, and various organs.
When your hormones are in balance, your body functions harmoniously. But, when that balance is disrupted, your body will react with symptoms that negatively impact your overall mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Furthermore, hormonal imbalances left unaddressed can lead to unwanted health conditions.
Common Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalances in Women and Men
- Weight gain
- Thinning hair
- Low sex drive
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Sleep disturbances
- Poor concentration
- Depression and anxiety
- Irritability and mood swings
It’s natural to be concerned when these symptoms arise; however, you don’t associate them with hormonal imbalances if you’re like most people. Instead, it’s common to try supplements or medications hoping to relieve your symptoms, while the underlying cause behind them, a hormonal imbalance, remains unaddressed. This results in time-consuming and expensive trial and error approaches to symptom relief that simply don’t work.
Hormonal imbalances are the root cause of many chronic health issues. What may seem like bothersome symptoms now can lead to unwanted hormone-related health conditions, including:
- Endometriosis and PCOS
- Heart disease
- Adrenal Insufficiency
- Sexual dysfunction
- High blood pressure
- Breast and uterine cancer

Hormone Balance with USP Bio-Identical Progesterone Cream
Progesterone is considered the “master hormone” and is necessary to produce and balance other essential hormones, primarily estrogen and testosterone. As a result, progesterone has the natural ability to help make and regulate all hormones in the body. However, progesterone levels become significantly lower as we age, thus disrupting the delicate balance of the entire endocrine (hormonal) system.
The Organic Excellence USP Bio-Identical Progesterone Creams offer a safe, effective and natural way to support overall hormonal balance. Unlike prescribed hormone replacement therapy, they are free of contraindications and side-effects and are a helpful ally for women and men of all ages.
