The main hormones that tend to lend to the physical and sexual characteristics of a human being are the gonad tropic hormones. The gonad tropic hormones also known as the sex hormones tend to lend the physical characteristics that tend to lend the traits of differentiation.

The fluctuations of hormones in the body are what cause the messing up of bodily functions, and the role-play of estrogen and testosterone is what determines the characteristics of males and females apart from lending their primary characteristics the hormones have other important functions as well. Let us understand all of them in detail.

Before diving deep into the sciences of hormonal imbalance and studies let us understand the functions of testosterone in females and how overproduction of the same affects the gastrointestinal tract and the role of estrogen in males and how overproduction of the same affects the process of digestion.

Role of estrogen in the process of digestion for both males and females 

“Estrogen and estrogen receptors tend to act as a catalyst in the process of digestion, the estrogen tends to fasten the process of digestion to lend metabolism to the body. However, the overproduction of estrogen tends to affect the lining of the GI tract which thus makes the females more prone to loose stools and chronic constipation “explained a well-known gastro doctor in Ludhiana.

The reproductive health of males when concerned with estrogen is not dependent on estrogen alone but it is dependent on a derivative estrogen that is Estradiol. Estradiol is important for sexual functions like erectile dysfunction, sexual wellness, and also erection during mating.

The overproduction of estrogen in males can lead to problems like gynecomastia and sexual wellness problems that lead to the poor absorption of food and the loosening of the GI muscles that can lead to problems like loose stool, diarrhea, etc. “ explained very well know gastro doctor in Ludhiana

Role of testosterone in digestion in both males and females 

Testosterone as a hormone on the other hand tends to ease the process of digestion by easing the movement of food in the digestive tract, cutting down on the negative impact of cortisol which tends to result in the deposit of white fat all around the lower belly area, thus the overproduction of testosterone tends to lend male like characteristics to the female’s body and also affect the well being of the individual in general.
