Hormones are chemical messengers for the cells. The term “bioidentical” is used to describe a compound that possesses an identical molecular structure to what the human body naturally produces.
Are they safe?
The distribution of false information has caused many people to question the safety and effectiveness of bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormones are a safe and effective solution for hormonal imbalance and/or decline in men and women, because they are naturally produced by the body and are essential to proper function.
What about birth control pills, Premarin or Provera?
These drugs are synthetic hormones which are devised in a lab to mimic bioidentical hormones, but have a host of dangerous side effects, including an increased risk of blood clots, stroke, heart disease and breast cancer.
