Hormone Function

Hormone regulation is carried out through a mechanism called feedback, whereby the level of a hormone in the blood determines the stimulation or inhibition of the activity of a certain gland. This system needs to be very precise in order to the body function perfectly, otherwise it can cause ilnesses, such as hyperthyroidism. It is very common to have instabilities on the feedback, but a good diet and some supplements can help it get back on track.

Notes
There appears to be a decrease in SHBG concentrations in older individuals who also experience a rise in androgen/estrogen concentrations, but this is often similarly unreliable.
There are not any significant alterations within the circulating levels of SHBG seen with purple clover supplementation.
