Americans James Rothman and Randy Schekman and Germany's Thomas Suedhof have won the 2013 Nobel medicine prize for their work on how hormones are transported within and outside cells, Merco Press reported October 8th. According to the article, “Nobel medicine prize for work on how hormones are transported in and outside cells, the professors’ research gives insight into diseases such as diabetes and Alzheimer's. At a news conference, Jan-Inge Henter, professor of clinical child oncology at the Karolinska Institute, commented, ‘These beautiful discoveries have importance for the understanding of the human body and obviously implications for diseases in various organs such as the nervous system, diabetes and immune disorders.’ (

This inspired Yourwellness Magazine to take a closer look at hormones, and how they might be regulated through a healthy diet. Yourwellness Magazine noted, "Hormones are the body’s chemical messengers, which affect our moods, energy, growth and the ability to reproduce – they are a vital part of a number of the body’s natural processes. When they are unbalanced, it can seriously affect our well being as well as the risk of developing heart disease, depression, infertility and even cancer... Balancing your hormones can significantly affect your health, improving your energy levels and leaving your feeling better overall. What you eat, and the quality of the food you’re using as fuel for your body, can either throw this off track or help to maintain a good hormonal balance." (

Yourwellness Magazine explained that mimicking the plant-based, low fat and high fibre diet prescribed by GPs is essential, as loading up on fatty foods and sugar will throw bodily functions off track, and make an individual feel sluggish and low on energy. This is because such as diet means the hormones are imbalanced, which leads to many of the organs running on a lower quality fuel. Yourwellness Magazine advised readers to eat plenty of vegetables and fruits, whole grains, soy, plant fibres and legumes.
