What are Bio-identical hormones?
Bio-identical hormones have the same structure and action as hormones in the human body. They come from plant sources such as wild yam and soy but are considered bio-identical because of their structure and action rather than origin. Synthetic hormones differ in that they are often derived from other sources (such as horse urine) and they have side chains added to their chemical structure so that they can be patented. Synthetic hormones often contain portions and constituents that do not mimic the physiology of human hormones. For this reason synthetic hormone therapy can have many unwanted side effects. Bio-identical hormone therapy is gentle, safe and more natural because the hormone structures and actions are much closer to our bodies natural hormone structure and function. All Bio-identical hormones are ordered from professional specialty compounding pharmacies and made with natural and organic ingredients wherever possible.
