Bio-identical hormones are the duplicate hormones which your body lacks. These are the natural hormones that are shaped to increase the low level of hormones in a body. When aging starts, hormone level in a human body start decreasing which cause fatness, loss muscle mass and skin elasticity. Bio-identicals are for both men and women.
The term “Bio-identical” is applied to those hormones which are identical to the naturally occurring hormones on a molecular level. These hormones are made from plants and some custom-mixed formulas which contains several hormones that are chemically identical to naturally occurring hormones in a body.
Bio-identical hormones are made from phyoestrogens that are found in plants. These phytoestrogens are converted into hormones that are identical to ones produced by body naturally through en enzymatic process in a laboratory. If some ingested the plant directly, there would be no affect because our body can’t change the phytoestrogen into hormone. That is where bio-identical hormone replacement therapy plays a role.
BHRT is a replacement of naturally occurring hormones of a body with biologically and chemically made identical hormones. In BHRT, only exactly matchable hormones can be replaced or certain changes can be done in hormones according to the body’s requirements and system. BHRT comes in different forms like in capsules, topical creams, vaginal creams, injections and more.
The basic purpose of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is to give relieve from menopausal symptoms by using synthetic hormones. It also helps to maintain hormonal changes in a body. Benefits at its best can only be achieved through the optimization and balancing of Bio-identical hormones levels in a safe and natural way.
Bio-identical Hormones includes Progesterone, Testosterone, Estrone, Estradiol and Estriol that are used for women in pre-menstrual syndrome, peri-menopause, and post -menopause in order to decrease the effects of decline of these hormones. Bio-identical hormones in men are also used for the same purpose that is for Andropause.
Bio-identical hormones are useful for lowering cholesterol levels, preventing osteoporosis, and improving concentration, sleep, mood, and libido.

For women, Bio-identical Hormones helps to restore and correct menstruation, decreases symptoms of premenstrual syndrome and pre-menopause symptoms.
These hormones work in the same way as natural hormones does because bio-identical hormones are of same chemical structure and characteristics to that of natural hormones of a body. Body also utilizes them in a same way. Bio-identical hormones follow the same way and perform metabolic functions. They get attach with receptors perfectly without making any changes in receptors as synthetic hormones usually do.
