Unlock the Benefits of BHRT

April 4th, 2024

Every person’s natural hormone production will decline with age. No one escapes this hard reality. The result can be unpleasant symptoms, as well as a reduction in good health and vitality.

Fortunately, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can reduce (and even reverse) the symptoms that are often associated with hormones that are out of balance.

And it doesn’t end there. BHRT also provides significant benefits that are related to overall health and longevity.

Following is a more in-depth look at the benefits associated with six important hormones:

  • Estrogen
  • Testosterone
  • Growth hormone
  • Melatonin
  • Thyroid
  • DHEA

Estrogen

Estrogen is crucial for heart, bone, and brain health. While women need larger amounts of estrogen for good health, men need estrogen, too—they just need less of it than women do.

For women, bioidentical estrogen therapy can replace what the body is no longer producing naturally on its own. In addition to supporting overall health, estrogen replacement alleviates symptoms like hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and mood swings.

For men, some of their testosterone routinely converts to estrogen. This is important for the reasons described above (i.e., some estrogen is needed for heart, bone, and brain health). However, as testosterone production declines, some men will eventually end up being estrogen deficient. Conversely, other men will wind up with too much estrogen in their systems because their conversion rate of testosterone to estrogen speeds up as they age. Both situations can cause unpleasant symptoms and negative consequences to overall health.

All of the above can be addressed with properly administered hormone replacement therapy.

Testosterone

Testosterone is the flip of estrogen in one important way: The same way women need a lot of estrogen for good health relative to the small amounts of estrogen men need, the reverse is true for testosterone. In other words, men need a lot of testosterone to be healthy relative to the smaller amounts needed by women.

Men and women both need adequate amounts of testosterone for healthy muscle mass, sex drive, motivation, mood stabilization, and more.

For men, testosterone production begins to decline as early as the late 20s or early 30s. Women will often become testosterone deficient during perimenopause.

Testosterone replacement therapy can restore testosterone to optimal levels for symptom relief and improved overall health.

Growth Hormone

Growth hormone (GH) is crucial for cell growth and repair, metabolism, muscle development, and more. It is not an understatement to say that growth hormone affects every system and every process within the body.

People produce large quantities of GH during childhood when they are growing rapidly. However, upon reaching adulthood, GH production drops off gradually. By the time a person reaches their 70s or 80s, they typically produce just a fraction of what was produced during their younger years. This gradual decline in growth hormone production has a significant impact on the aging process.

Growth hormone therapy, which can include a growth hormone stimulating peptide or recombinant growth hormone (or a combination of the two) can promote muscle strength, enhance metabolism, improve cognition, and improve overall vitality in both men and women.

Melatonin

Melatonin is widely known for making people sleepy when it’s time for bed. But that isn’t the whole story. Melatonin also supports healthy immune system function and antioxidant activity.

Men and women who struggle with insomnia can benefit from taking melatonin before bed to restore healthy sleep patterns; but everyone can benefit from melatonin’s impact on immune system health and antioxidant activity.

Thyroid

Thyroid hormones have everything to do with metabolism and energy production. As a consequence, thyroid deficiencies can have a serious impact on a person’s overall health and how they feel.

Thyroid replacement can help people with hypothyroidism (i.e., low thyroid levels) by alleviating symptoms like fatigue, weight gain, cold intolerance, dry skin, and depression.

DHEA

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is an adrenal hormone that plays an important role in energy production, cognitive function, immune response, and how the body copes with stress.

DHEA replacement can increase energy, improve mood and mental acuity, support cardiovascular health, and promote healthy immune system function in people who have low DHEA levels due to age-related hormone decline, or chronic stress, or both.

Get the Most From BHRT

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a powerful way to reverse age-related hormone decline, thereby alleviating symptoms and restoring vitality.

However, expertise matters when it comes to prescribing BHRT correctly. A provider with sufficient expertise will ensure that treatment is properly tailored to your body’s unique needs.
