How Testosterone & Estrogen Can Impact Weight Loss in Women
So you’re doing everything right…
… exercising consistently, doing both cardio & strength training, doing good with your diet – but STILL NOT losing weight?
It’s NOT you. Metabolism, body fat, & appetite – all are regulated by hormones. Hormone health can make or break your results.
Testosterone & Estrogen balance may be preventing you from losing weight. Beyond just hormone levels, it’s important to consider how well your body responds to the hormone signals (something nearly impossible to detect on lab tests).
Testosterone (yes… even for women!) promotes overall vitality, energy, drive, and helps maintain lean muscle mass – increasing the number of calories you burn! Lean muscle is important as it increases metabolism meaning you burn more calories you burn at rest and during exercise.
After the age of 30, testosterone levels in women naturally decline every year causing fatigue, hair loss, and progressive weight gain … especially in the form of belly fat. MACA root & Magnesium have been clinically studied to support healthy testosterone levels, and therefore help boost weight loss results!
Estrogen BALANCE is also key for reducing belly fat and losing weight. Estrogen levels fluctuate with age or after life events such as menopause and pregnancy.
When estrogen levels are too low, it causes the body to convert more energy into fat to keep estrogen levels in balance (as fat cells actually produce estrogen). On the other hand, EXCESS estrogen can trigger the body to produce insulin (a fat storing hormone) also leading to weight gain especially around the hips and waist.
MACA root is the ultimate “natural” hormone support! Unlike soy or phytoestrogens, it doesn’t mimic estrogenic effects but rather supports the body’s natural production of estrogen (and progesterone!) if levels are too low. Magnesium is also an essential building block for the production of estrogen and progesterone.
A word from Dr.Stephanie…
As a clinician in the hormone clinic (endocrinology), I had many women referred to me to discuss complaints of fatigue and weight gain. Many women didn’t realize that hormone balance is the foundation for losing weight!
With my product HER FITNESS, I have combined herbs & minerals that support healthy hormone balance (including MACA Root, Magnesium, Chromium, & more) with Morosil – a clinical grade standardized antioxidant sourced from Italy for fat burn, appetite support, and a natural energy boost.
Try my products totally risk-free, if you stick with it consistently you will experience benefits (or your money-back!).
