Bio-identical hormone therapy (BHRT) describes the use of hormones that are molecularly identical to hormones naturally produced in the human body. The body recognizes these lab-created hormones – estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone – as though they were naturally-occurring and metabolizes them similarly.
Though these hormones are synthesized in a laboratory or pharmaceutical plant, they are derived from natural ingredients.
Bio-identical hormone therapy offers many benefits to both men and women who struggle with hormonal imbalances associated with menopause and andropause. Some benefits of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy include:
• Helps to decrease wrinkles and promote firmer skin
• Lowers body fat and builds lean muscle
• Works to increase libido
• Helps to increase bone mass and prevent osteoporosis
• Could improve quality of sleep and the function of the immune system
• Works to enhance overall mood and cognitive function
• Aids in the reversal of metabolic syndrome
• Aids in increasing libido
• Helps to balance testosterone levels
• Aids in the reduction of body weight and overall body fat content
