Hormones affect almost every aspect of our physiology. From how well our organs function to how fast our metabolism runs. Endocrine glands secrete the hormones that control how our bodies operate. Unfortunately, as we age our glands can malfunction, increasing stress on other parts of our bodies.
While our bodies are designed to produce hormones, as we age it becomes necessary to supplement those hormones to make maintain proper function. BHRT helps to restore our hormone levels, improving how our bodies feel and function.
What Is Biote?
Biote therapy optimizes the endocrine system using bioidentical hormone pellets. Bioidentical hormones are very similar to our naturally produced hormones. The main difference is these are made in a laboratory from plant compounds instead of in our bodies. These bioidentical hormones are commonly used to treat impaired estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone production.
We often think of hormones as “gender specific”, testosterone for men and estrogen for women. Actually, both hormones are produced by men and women. When we are deficient in either of them, a variety of symptoms can occur, including increased fatigue, decreases in sex drive, and “brain fog”.
Biote therapy supplements the body’s endocrine system with hormones that it no longer produces enough of or may not be producing at all.
