Balanced hormones are necessary for good health and disease prevention for women and men as we age. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy from Progressive can help. Hormone therapy is not just for libido. Hormones are critical for the brain, heart and bones. Even the gut responds favorably to hormone therapy. Hormone pellets release all-natural bio-identical estrogen and testosterone and are absorbed consistently into the body as needed.
Bioidentical hormone therapy (BHT) uses bioidentical hormones (BHs), derivatives of plant extracts chemically modified to be structurally indistinguishable from human endogenous hormones1. BHTs are available commercially or can be compounded into different dosages and for different routes of administration12.
According to a review of evidence, BHT may have some benefits over conventional hormone therapy (CHT) in terms of cardiovascular disease risk and breast cancer risk1.
Hormones can get out of balance as you age due to natural aging processes. Hormone production slows as you age. Stress, injury, illness, poor nutrition, or a lack of exercise can also cause hormonal imbalances.
Symptoms of hormonal imbalances include bloating, constipation, and diarrhea. Managing stress is one thing women can do to help balance their hormones as they age.
