How Your Hormones are Affecting Your DNA

 

Did you know April 25th just happens to be 'DNA Day'? Maybe it's just a coincidence but we launched our new logo and exclusive program on April 25th also. Get it? We want you to feel 25 on the 25th!

All 'puns' aside, DNA is a complex subject that many people don't understand. Your DNA dictates everything inside your body. Your growth, your internal processes, and even your body's ability to produce hormones is affected by your DNA.

When we think of DNA we think of the traits we inherit from our parents. Maybe it’s mom’s green eyes or dad’s broad shoulders. As we age, we may start to notice other less-than-desirable traits that we may be inheriting—dad’s receding hairline, mom’s persistent fatigue. These characteristics aren’t just DNA being expressed. Our hormones, especially our thyroid hormones, play a huge role in how DNA functions.

Hormones work inside the cell to bind proteins to DNA. The specific ways that these are sequenced turn on certain genes. DNA determines how we are built and how we function. As we age, these hormones can become irregular. If these hormones are out of balance, your cells won’t be able to function properly. Poor testosterone and estrogen levels can even affect how your DNA is expressed, regarding muscle tone, mood, and energy.  

Our exclusive 25 Again program targets hormones that are out of balance. Regulating these hormones promotes healthy cell activity and will get your body back on track. This means that even if your DNA has told your body to stop producing certain types of hormones, we work to give you back the ones that are critical for your continued longevity and health!
