Bioidentical vs. Synthetic Hormones
Pharmaceutical companies cannot patent a naturally-occurring substance, therefore, synthetic hormones used in traditional hormone replacement therapy are purposely made to be slightly different than the body’s own hormones. As a result, undesirable side effects can occur.
The benefits of bioidentical hormones over synthetic hormones include:
- Fewer side effects. Since there are no added ingredients, and because the body can metabolize the bioidentical hormones in the same way it metabolizes the body’s own hormones, unpleasant side effects are minimized.
- Individualized Approach. Bioidentical hormones can be compounded according to each person’s hormone profile, as determined by their physician, so that the lowest effective dose can be utilized.
