Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help women and men to stay youthful on the inside. Bioidentical hormones are hormones that are virtually identical to those produced in the human body. They usually come from natural sources, such as soy or yams, and because their structure is identical on a molecular level to the hormones produced in the body, they can be metabolized and made active more easily with fewer side effects. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is useful in treating women in menopause, peri-menopause, or post-menopause that want to reduce hot flashes, night sweats, and improve the quality of their sleep. BHRT is also been shown to be helpful in improving mood, concentration, and memory, as well as libido. Women who are on BHRT also experience a lower incidence of osteoporosis and are able to maintain better muscle mass and strength, which are key components to successful long-term weight management.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can also be useful in treating men suffering from symptoms associated with andropause, which is the male equivalent of menopause. Typical symptoms include low testosterone, chronic fatigue, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, irritability, depression, and reduced muscle mass and strength.
Benefits of bioidentical hormones for both men and women can include:
- Improved Sleep
- Decreased Hot Flashes or Night Sweats
- Weight Loss
- Increased Muscle Mass
- Improved Sexual Function
- Better Workout Performances
- Higher Libido
- Healthier Emotions
- Thicker Hair
- Lustrous Nails
- Vibrant Skin
- Healthier Heart Function
- Decreased Anxiety
- Increased Sense of Wellbeing
