What Are Bioidentical Hormones?
Common age-related conditions such as high cholesterol, hypertension, adult onset diabetes, osteoporosis, and even some types of cancer are linked to a low hormone state. Bioidentical hormones are identical to the hormones which are produced naturally in the body. So identical, in fact, that the body can’t tell the difference. This enables patients to receive the health benefits associated with increased hormone levels.
