7 Steps to Healthy Hormones - Step 6: Exercise

An important factor in Healthy Hormonal Balance is exercise. There are literally thousands of research articles that show exercise is beneficial for your health, including your hormonal health.

Interval Exercise: 

One of the best all-around activities you can do for your hormonal health is interval (burst) training. If there is a silver bullet out there, this is it! Exercising opens the hormone faucet to release the right amount of hormone that your body NEEDS!

Interval training is simply alternating bursts of intense activity with intervals of lighter activity.

For instance, if your exercise is walking — if you're in good shape, you might incorporate short bursts of jogging into your regular brisk walks. If you're less fit, you might alternate leisurely walking with periods of faster walking. For example, if you're walking outdoors, you could walk faster between certain mailboxes, trees or other landmarks.

Whether endorphins, testosterone, growth hormone or insulin, interval training will help reduce stress levels, enhance your immune system, regulate metabolic function and keep you at the body weight your body was designed for.
