The most common hormone blamed for middle age spread and three others you’ve probably never even heard of
As you age, it’s insulin or rather “insulin resistance” that starts to occur in your cells and makes you store fat rather than burn calories.
This resistance changes how your body handles food.
For example: In your 30s, you could eat 1,000 calories and your body would burn 700 of them and store around 300. But in your 50s, you’ll typically store 700 calories and only burn 300.
The result? Weight gain.
But before you rush out to address insulin resistance, you may be surprised to know these three other hormones are key reasons you cannot blast away your spare tyre. I’m talking about:
High cortisol: As a woman, when your oestrogen drops your cortisol levels rise and causes weight gain. As a man, cortisol blocks testosterone and causes more than weight gain, it’s why you’ve lost your libido too.
Low DHEA: Typically in men, normal DHEA levels ( the active from of testosterone) help cortisol become an inactive storage and transportation form – not enough DHEA means increased weight gain because cortisol stays active.
Low testosterone: This means an excess of oestrogen which means weight gain.
Fortunately, there is a way to naturally stimulate breakdown of this fat store and do it permanently
There are seven natural supplements you can take every day to maintain your hormone levels and reverse the effects of hormonal imbalances.

Shut down your body’s number one fat-making signal with the first fat-burning nutrient
Did you know: The hormone responsible for keeping your blood sugar under control is making you fat?
While insulin is essential for controlling your blood glucose levels, it’s also your number one fat-storing culprit.
And what’s worse, the fatter you are, the more fat you store because of insulin.
But there’s a way to stop it. Find out what it is here…
Here are three important natural belly fat busting supplements to add to your daily diet
Garcinia Cambogia: Regulates cortisol
This tropical fruit extract has received a lot of press lately and for good reason. It helps to regulate your cortisol levels, but does so much more too. Take it to decrease your appetite, block fat absorption and burn belly fat as well.
Chromium Picolinate: Controls your blood sugar for better insulin management
This mineral supplement helps you better control your insulin levels by regulating your cell’s uptake of energy.
In simple terms, it encourages your cells to respond to insulin as they should and this lowers insulin resistance levels.
Irvingia Extract: Corrects leptin resistance
Leptin is the hormone your brain responds to after you eat. It tells your brain you’re full and you should stop eating. But the hypothalamus in your brain can become resistant to its messages. And so you keep eating even if you’re not hungry.
This extract from the African Mango corrects leptin resistance and can help you naturally reduce your calorie intake by feeling full when you should.
