How Sex Hormones Act on the Brain

Testosterone is a brain-boosting hormone that can improve mood, memory,  and motivation.

 

Testosterone drops in women and men with age. This is most often caused by weight gain, lack of exercise, stress, and high-sugar diets.

However, the biggest reason I see low testosterone in men is insulin resistance. High belly fat drives insulin up and testosterone down. Men can lose hair on their bodies, grow breasts, and have rounded soft skin. It is because they are producing less testosterone and more estrogen. 

Correcting insulin problems may naturally raise testosterone levels. This can be done by eating whole foods, cutting out sugar and flour, and building muscle.

 

A topical bio-identical testosterone may help with building muscle and bone. It may also help with weight loss, depression, mood swings, memory, concentration, and sexual function. Even women benefit from the use of bio-identical testosterone.

80 percent of the time simply changing your diet and lifestyle, detoxifying, addressing stress, and rebalancing all the other seven Keys to UltraWellness health will help you regain balance without taking hormones.

For even more about how sex hormones affect your mood, memory, and behavior see Dr. Hyman’s book, The UltraMind Solution.

  1. Interesting post! I know several women who’ve found that testosterone has helped balance hormone issues, but it’s not something that doctor’s mention immediately.

  2. It’s scary to think that although eating well, exercising etc are things we all know help maintain a good body / mind we still eat like crap and lead sedentary lives! Well, most of us anyway.

  3. Some awesome thoughts in this video, thank you so much for sharing. I do always love learning more about our bodies.

  4. Hi Elise & Dr. Hyman,

    Interesting information about hormones. I do a lot of research about health issues, but didn’t know we weren’t genetically conditioned to have lower testosterone levels as we age. That one gem of knowledge excites me. Thank you,
    Edward

  5. Hello Elise! So nice to meet Mark here on your blog, his article bought up some great points for me, I do know that eating right and exercise are so important as we age, but never really thought about the stress factor and sex having much bearing HUM..

    Great share,,
    Chery :))
