As we age, it’s common to feel a little foggy on some days. But if you’re having trouble focusing or feel that you’re lacking the mental clarity you had when you were younger, it could be due to a hormonal imbalance. Medical professionals refer to this as “brain fog” or “foggy brain.”
A healthy brain and body require balanced hormones. If your hormones are out of balance, you can experience symptoms like fatigue, memory problems, mood swings, brain fog, and a host of other symptoms.
What Are Hormones?
The human body produces hundreds of hormones, which are chemical messengers made in the body that control and regulate the activity of our cells and organs. Neurohormones, in particular, have a direct impact on the brain with the most important being:
- Thyroid hormones, which help with energy regulation
- Estrogen, which helps regulate mood
- Progesterone, which helps control anxiety
- Testosterone, which affects mood, sexuality, and strength
What Is Brain Fog?
Brain fog has been described by many as feeling like you’re sleepwalking through life. You may feel tired, forgetful, have difficulty concentrating, and notice that even simple tasks seem challenging. Everybody experiences these symptoms from time to time, but if it’s happening on a regular basis, it may be time to do something about it and call the medical professionals at 25 Again.
How Do Neurohormones Affect the Brain?
The communication between the brain and hormones is a two-way street. The brain sends out signals that tell your body’s glands to produce and release hormones, and hormones send messages back to the brain that affect its activity.
When your hormones are in balance, you feel more energetic, mentally clear, and focused. When they’re out of balance, you can experience symptoms like brain fog, lack of focus, anxiety, and depression.
