Who needs to take Bioidentical Hormones?
Most hormones decline with age. This may be a natural consequence of aging but may also be accelerated in some individuals.
For these reasons, anti-aging physicians and patients seek methods of hormone replacement which might slow down the aging process.
Bio-identical hormone replacement refers to the use of hormones which are molecularly identical to those produced naturally in the body and the use of those to supplement or replace hormones which have declined abnormally.
For sexual hormones it is widely accepted to use bio-identical estrogens, progesterone and testosterone for menopausal women.
For men in andropause with low testosterone, bio-identical testosterone is recognized to be beneficial.
