Did you know insulin is a hormone?

 

Did you know that insulin is a hormone? Insulin resistance is linked to overall hormone imbalance. Insulin is produced by the pancreas and is a major component in regulating your body’s metabolism. It regulates the way our bodies process glucose.  In the United States, Type 2 diabetes is becoming an ever-increasing health issue and is characterized by the body’s inability to use insulin properly. When a person has insulin-related hormone imbalance, other hormones can also become out of balance as well, including testosterone, estrogen, cortisol, thyroid, and progesterone. This can have a significant effect on our health and the way they feel in our day-to-day life. Bringing these hormones back into balance can improve the metabolism and regulation of glucose.   25 Again looks at total health and working to achieve optimal levels in all hormones.
