You have many different hormones, although you may only be able to name a few of them, and they all work together in a beautiful and complex symphony. When hormones are doing their job properly, all the correct information and internal messaging gets done efficiently, and you feel healthy, energetic and happy. So as you can see, they are instrumental in feeling fabulous, and if they’re not working properly they can make you feel pretty bad too.

Aside from healthy production, to have Happy, Healthy Hormones, we also need to have healthy transport of them around the body,
