Unlike traditional hormone replacement therapy programs, bioidentical hormones contain the exact chemical structure as the hormones that your body produces naturally. Synthetic hormones often contain added chemical components that modify the structure of the original hormone. Modifying hormones this way allows drug companies to patent their products and profit, but it does nothing for your health.
Bioidentical hormones, on the other hand, are chemically identical to the hormones that are naturally produced in your body. Your body recognizes these hormones without any risk of rejection. Plus, bioidentical hormones are extracted from natural plant sources such as soy and yams and available in several convenient forms, such as creams and gels.
