Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

The benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for men and women are numerous. Hormonal imbalance is most closely associated with aging, but may occur at any time due to stress, lack of sleep, or poor nutrition.

Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for both Men & Women include:

Balanced Moods: Balanced hormones can remedy feelings of anger, anxiety, and depression.

Increased Muscle Mass: Testosterone directly affects the building of muscle in both men and women.  If testosterone levels are too low muscle mass will decrease.

Fat Loss:  If estrogen is low for either a man or woman, the body attempts to conserve estrogen by storing extra fat. This is because fat contains estrogen. Adding regular amounts of estrogen to the body can decrease fat storage.

Higher Libido: If hormone levels are decreased, then desire for sexual activity is also decreased. When hormones are restored to normal levels, libido is boosted.

Healthier Sleeping Patterns: Hormonal imbalances can interfere with signals in the hypothalamus and cause difficulty sleeping.

Increased Vitality: Balanced hormones help the body effectively produce energy to restore and increase vitality.

Higher Bone Density: Balanced hormones can regulate calcium absorption to keep bones healthy and strong.

Decreased Hot Flashes: The hypothalamus is the body’s internal thermometer. Hormonal deficiencies can cause signals going to the hypothalamus to get crossed, and this can result in hot flashes and night sweats.

Increased Vaginal Lubrication:  Vaginal tissue needs estrogen to be healthy.  Low estrogen levels can cause vaginal dryness.  By supplementing the deficient hormones, vaginal dryness can be relieved.

Increased Skin Elasticity: Collagen is responsible for skin youth and elasticity. When the collagen bonds break apart, skin can appear dry or wrinkled. Vitamin C and estrogen influence the formation of collagen and help keep skin youthful.

Improved Erectile Function: Testosterone directly affects reproductive functions.  Sexual functions may be decreased when testosterone is deficient and improved when testosterone levels are brought back to normal.

Reduced Hair Thinning: Testosterone assists hair follicles in the producing of hair, and cells can die away due to a lack of hormonal production and dryness.

Restored Muscle Mass: When testosterone levels decline, men can lose between 12 or 15 pounds of lean muscle mass.  Restoring testosterone to healthy levels improves the ability of muscles to regenerate with exercise.
