The Endocrine Society has defined bio-identical hormones as ‘compounds that have exactly the same chemical and molecular structure as hormones that are produced in the human body’.
They are synthesised from a plant chemical extracted from yams and soy at a molecular level. They differ from synthetic hormones, which have a different molecular structure.
Typical symptoms related to hormonal imbalance are:
Progesterone, oestrogen, testosterone and DHEA.
Pellets or creams?
The effects of menopause.
