What are Bioidentical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are identical in chemical structure to hormones naturally produced by the body. They are derived from plant tissues and scientifically engineered to match human hormones, molecule for molecule; we refer to them as “natural” because they are natural to the human body. Unlike bioidentical hormones, synthetic hormones have a structure that is similar but not exactly the same as a hormone produced by the body. These chemical differences mean that the synthetic hormone acts differently and produces substantially different effects. Natural and synthetic hormones are entirely different and should not be used interchangeable. A multitude of studies have demonstrated many harmful effects of synthetic hormones whereas the medical literature supports no harmful effects of natural hormones only benefits.
