Bioidentical hormones are compounds that have the exact chemical structure as the hormones that are produced by your own body. They are a safer and more effective alternative to synthetic hormones which have been linked to cancer and heart disease. Bioidentical hormones can help you age gracefully and reduce symptoms of perimenopause or menopause in women and andropause (low testosterone) or midlife crisis in men. Some symptoms of lower hormone levels are weight gain, low sex drive, hair loss, wrinkles, memory loss, insomnia, high cholesterol, hot flashes, headaches, heart disease, stroke, bone loss, body aches, fatigue, dry skin, anxiety and depression.
