What are Bioidentical Hormones?
The term “bioidentical” means that the hormone is the exact chemical structure as the hormones your body naturally produces. These hormones start with yam or soy based ingredients that are converted to estrogen, progesterone or testosterone in the lab and the end product is the same as the estrogen, progesterone or testosterone made in your body.
This is very different from the synthetic hormones often used in women’s health. They are man-made chemicals that are created to mimic hormones but they are not the same thing.
