What is BHRT?
BHRT stands for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. What does that mean? Bio-identical refers to how molecularly similar the supplemental hormone is to the human hormone. Other supplemental hormones such as the ones administered by conventional physicians are not bio-identical. Bio-identicals are derived from plants while synthetic hormones are derived from animals. Hormone replacement therapy is the purpose of the bio-identical hormones. People who lack certain hormones or who have too much of a certain hormone may benefit from BHRT.

What hormones are optimized by Bio-identical Pellets?
Hormones are responsible for beginning and ending most processes within the body. They are a particular kind of molecule called a signaling molecule produced within the body to regulate physiology. Every hormone plays complicated roles within the body, but to simplify them: there are sex hormones, immune hormones, sleep hormones, stress hormones, growth hormones, cardiac associated hormones, digestive hormones, and Vitamin D (Yes, this is a hormone!). Sex hormones include testosterone, estrogen and progesterone. This is not a complete or comprehensive list of hormones and their functions.
Where do hormones come from?
Hormones are made by glands that belong to the endocrine system in the human body. The main glands are the hypothalamus, the thyroid, the thymus, the pancreas, the adrenals, the pituitary gland, the pineal gland, the ovaries and the testes.
