Bioidentical hormones are natural hormones made from highly purified phytochemicals derived from soy and wild yams

Bioidentical hormones are natural hormones made from highly purified phytochemicals derived from soy and wild yams. A complex manufacturing process transforms them into an identical copy of the estrogen our bodies produce.

Hormone replacement therapy with synthetic hormones is much disputed and has been shown to lead to negative health effects such as heart attacks and stroke.
Nevertheless, research suggests that estrogen supplementation may protect women from osteoporosis and colon cancer. Supplementation with the hormone progesterone has been proven to help prevent uterine cancer and possibly breast cancer.

Ask your doctor about bioidentical hormones. A compounding pharmacy can supply these natural hormones based on your individual needs. Check the Yellow Pages to locate a compounding pharmacy in your area.
