In general , your body’s hormones begin to decline in your late 20’s and hormone imbalances can be common in your mid-30s. Men and women often start replacing hormones between the age of 35 and 40 when symptoms become bothersome.  Hormone replacement therapy can occur at any stage.

Hormones are like stop-lights. When they are balanced the light is green, you will feel at your best and you will get the optimum results from your nutrition and fitness programs. When they are imbalanced the light is red, making us feel not like our usual selves.
