Do I need new Biote Pellets? Biote bio-identical hormone therapy naturally balances your hormones. Hormone replacement (or optimization) helps you feel better and more energized when your hormone levels begin to naturally decline. Bioidentical hormones (like the hormones made in your body) can restore your sex drive, increase muscle mass, reduce body fat, give you healthier skin and hair, and more based on your needs and symptoms.

Why Choose Biote Pellet Therapy?

Biote pellet therapy restores hormone balance naturally. As we age, our hormone levels can drop due to environmental factors, natural changes of aging, and the accumulation of normal daily stresses.  When our hormones don’t function like they should we just “don’t feel like ourselves”. Decreased sex drive, moody, listless, and tired. Worse yet, these changes are a health risk. Women need healthy estrogen levels for bone, breast, and heart health while men benefit from improved heart health and decreased risk of Alzheimer’s.

Before beginning hormone therapy, your will have your hormone levels tested to ensure you receive the right type of therapy to supplement your body. For men, their treatment consists of ONLY testosterone.  Women, on the other hand, can receive testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone, depending on their specific needs.

Once you start your hormone optimization program, it can take a 3 to 4 weeks before you truly begin to experience the benefits of your therapy.

Biote pellet therapy uses bioidentical hormones made from natural sources to supplement your hormone levels. Bioidentical hormones have been used in America since the 1930’s to improve the health of millions of people around the world.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is considered a safer and simpler way to maintain healthy hormone levels. Pellet therapy involves inserting tiny pellets, the size of a grain of rice, beneath the skin. Once placed, the pellets will slowly dissolve in your system. They will usually last for 3-4 months for women and 5-6 months for men. Your body will absorb the hormones from the pellet in just the right amounts.

Do I Need New Biote Pellets?

Are you experiencing your old mood swings for no reason? Are you feeling tired more often, feeling lowered sex drive, or gaining unwanted weight even though you continue to eat healthy and exercise regularly? You could be starting to experience hormone imbalance.

Patients that are avid runners, bikers, or “gym rats” will go through their pellets more quickly than people that aren’t as active. This is because the contents of the pellets are introduced into the bloodstream more quickly when your heart rate is elevated. Frequent exercise and high stress levels both increase heart rate, increasing the speed that the pellets are consumed. People that drink alcohol or smoke regularly will also deplete their pellets more quickly.

If you are noticing unwanted changes since your last Biote pellet insertion, it may be time to see your provider. The best way to determine if your hormone levels are falling is to have them tested. It requires just a simple blood test and comparing it to your previous hormone levels.
