Can CBD restore your hormonal imbalance?

CBD News Aggregator – From mood swings to insomnia, problem skin and irregular periods, nearly all women have experienced symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Yet general knowledge of the endocrine system is poor, with many only stopping to think about their hormones during pregnancy or the menopause. In fact, hormone imbalance can cause serious health issues, so it’s worth understanding the role they play, problems to look out for and how to address them.

Understanding hormones

Hormones are chemical messengers, sent from endocrine glands to receptor sites in the organs and tissues where they cause changes to take place. Essential for all bodily processes, hormones may be small, but they are mighty – so even a slight excess or deficiency of a particular hormone can have a noticeable effect on your overall wellbeing.

Everyone can suffer from hormonal imbalance, but it is women who are most likely to be affected by hormonal fluctuations, with these naturally occurring during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, breastfeeding and the menopause. Hormone imbalances can also happen outside of these periods, if one of the endocrine glands produces too little, too much, or even stops producing hormones entirely. This can trigger serious health conditions such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, Addison’s disease and PCOS.
