Hormones are chemical messengers that signal the body to carry out functions of metabolism, reproduction, sexual function, muscle growth, hair growth, collagen production, and neurological activities. Simply put, bio-identical hormones have the exact same molecular structure as the hormones found in the human body. Bio-identical hormones are usually compounded from plant sources, such as soy or yams, and in contrast to non bio-identical hormones, they mimic the hormones endogenous to a man or woman’s body. Some of the differences can include:
- Chemical structure is identical to humans
- Fits receptors exactly
- Effects on other tissues is well-known
- Fewer side-effects
- No increase in clotting factors (except oral estrogens)
- Beneficial to the heart
- Chemical structure is not identical to humans
- Attaches to receptors that are not for the hormone they are supplementing
- Effects on other tissues is not well-known
- More side-effects
- Increase in clotting factors
- Less beneficial to the heart
Both men and women can suffer from hormonal deficiencies, and while aging is the most common reason for imbalances, other reasons for hormone decline can include lack of exercise, a poor diet, not enough sleep, excessive stress, and environmental factors. Some of the hormones that can become deficient over time may include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, DHEA, Thyroid Hormone, and Human Growth Hormone.
Each of these hormones has a bio-identical substitute, which carries out similar physiological activities in the tissues relevant to the hormone, such as the bone, breast, testicles, thyroid gland, or uterus. The bio-identical hormones are active in virtually every organ system in the body, and they can help to reduce the symptoms of several different health issues, such as perimenopause, menopause, andropause, Thyroid disorders, Adrenal Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue, and Fibromyalgia.
