We are all familiar with the popular and somewhat negative stereotype regarding women and their occasional tendency to be overly hormonal, especially while menstruating. The truth, however, is that all humans are solely run by hormones in a way that many of us fail to realize. Of course, hormones and their fluctuations do affect women, however, the same exact thing can be said of men as well. There is not one person that is alive today that isn't completely run from top to bottom by their endocrine system.   In the article below we'll walk you through a list of ways that all of our lives are controlled by hormones. Many items on the list might come as a surprise to you, as most of us do not correlate hormones with aspects of the body such as sleep, food metabolism, fluid retention, and other essential and core physiological responses and controls.  

10 Ways That Hormones Affect Our Lives  

1. Blood Sugar Contrary to what most people realize, blood sugar levels within our bodies directly correlate with our endocrine system. In fact, the most common endocrine system disorder in humans is diabetes, affecting over 8 percent of the population in the United States.  

2. Breastfeeding Did you know that a woman's body produces a hormone known as oxytocin during lactation? Interestingly enough, oxytocin causes a woman's body to stop uterine bleeding during post-pregnancy and also helps the uterus to return to the size it retained during the pre-pregnancy phase.  

3. Drinking Alcohol It may come as a surprise to many, but drinking beer, wine, or any other type of alcohol causes the body to stop producing an important antidiuretic hormone needed to retain water in the kidneys. For this reason alone, dehydration is a common side effect of drinking alcohol.  

4. Hormones in The Urine Did you know that the first recorded diabetes test was developed in Ancient Greece? Hippocrates developed a method to test the urine for excess hormones in order to detect diabetes.  

5. Hormone Glands The 8 separate hormone glands throughout the body are not the only tissues known to secrete hormones. Hormone releases are also found in the tissues of the placenta (estrogen and progesterone), stomach lining (ghrelin), and other areas of the body.  

6. Aggression vs Tranquility Are you aware that the hormone testosterone is largely connected with aggression in males? Too much or too little testosterone found in human males can trigger aggression. Testosterone boosters roll is to brings a man's natural testosterone levels back into balance in order for him to maintain a healthy tranquil state of being.  

7. Traumatic Learning The two hormones adrenaline and cortisol, released by our amygdala, directly correlate with traumatic learning. These two hormones increase memory function and retention, helping us to avoid dangers in the present and future.  

8. Technological Inhibitors Scientists recently discovered that our melatonin hormones are greatly affected by the over-use of technological devices that emit light frequencies. Studies have shown that limited or discontinued use of these devices can totally reset our biological clocks which in turn rebalances our melatonin levels to a healthy range.  

9. Human Touch Studies have recently shown that cuddling and other forms of human touch release the hormone oxytocin in our bodies. This hormone has a powerful immune system boosting effect on our bodies which can aid in healing injuries and disease prevention.  

10. Arguments Did you know that women generally tend to remain in an agitated state longer than men following a heated argument or discussion? This is due to the fact that their nervous systems are wired to stay charged longer. The endocrine system in women keeps them amped up much longer than in men, a survival mechanism thought to be linked to protective instincts related to child rearing.
