Puberty is the time of change during which a child’s body becomes an adult body and develops the capacity to reproduce. Puberty begins when hormones from the pituitary gland in the brain signal the ovaries or testes to begin producing a variety of new hormones. These hormones stimulate the growth and transformation of the sex organs, bones, muscles, hair, skin, breasts and the entire body. Under the influence of these new hormonal influxes, this time is characterized by marked physical and emotional changes. Symptoms like acne, erratic mood swings, fatigue and irregular menstruation can be alleviated with the inclusion of herbs in one’s health regimen. Herbal support for puberty includes modulating hormonal surges, supporting overall endocrine health, and supporting the liver to efficiently break down hormones and other toxins.
