What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement?
Bio-identical hormones are derived from wild yam extract through a process done in a lab to reach the end product. The base structure, diosgenin, is similar to human progesterone.
Progesterone is the mother hormone from which DHEA, cortisol, estrogen and testosterone are usually derived. That means with minor modification in the lab, we can attain these molecules from the original progesterone molecule that our body perceives as its own hormone.
Research has shown that Bio-identical hormones are safer than conventional hormones.
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) is not without any risks, anytime you take BHRT, your blood or saliva levels should be monitored by a qualified healthcare provider.
