What are hormones?

Hormones are responsible for coordinating almost all psychological functions in the body through the use of hormonal signals. When an imbalance occurs in the hormone levels due to certain medication, menopause, illnesses, then treatment options to supplement the hormone levels like Hormone Replacement therapies (HRT) have to be used. HRT has the capability to balance the hormone levels in the body, eliminate the symptoms associated with hormone imbalance or menopause and restore normal body functioning.

Synthetic vs Natural Hormone Replacement

To supplement the hormone levels, conventional HRT can make use of synthetic or natural hormones. Synthetic hormones used in conventional HRT are not an ideal choice as they are not completely identical to the hormones produced by the body in terms of molecular structure. As a result, the synthetic hormones will not be fully absorbed into the body but will rather appear structurally as foreign material in the body resulting in a number of complications and side effects. Bioidentical hormones are extracted naturally from plants, and they resemble the hormones produced naturally by the body both in molecular structure and function bioidentical hormones are considered the safest and most effective form of hormone supplements. Another form of hormone supplement is the Premarin which is a hormone that is not bioidentical. It is extracted from a pregnant horse’s urine.
