Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a proven Denver hormone therapy. Originally developed in 1939 for women who had undergone radical hysterectomies. This procedure had recently become a widespread treatment in Europe and Australia. That makes compounded bio-identical hormone pellet therapy the longest-studied form of hormone replacement therapy. Even so, more studies will explain the benefits of Biote therapy over other types of hormone supplementation.
Biote providers have access to the best research on natural hormone optimization. Biote providers understand the “moving parts” involved in optimizing hormones. Every person needs personalized treatment. Because BHRT provides greater flexibility and accessibility than other types of therapy can offer. Hundreds of thousands of Biote patients have received over 2.5 million pellet insertions in the last ten years.

This study identified adverse events for men and women that received pellets placed beneath the skin. The overall complication rate was < 1%.
Recent Hormone Research
This study showed that declining estrogen levels before, during, and after menopause can negatively affect memory and increase the risk for Alzheimer’s disease. Although more research is necessary, this study showed a possible delay in the onset of dementia with pellet therapy.*

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) and Breast Cancer
Bio-available testosterone is significantly lower in women with breast cancer. Supporting the protective role Testosterone plays in women’s health is crucial in protecting women’s breast health (Dimitrakakis et al., 2010).
Testosterone was shown to counteract the proliferative, cancer-causing effects of Estrogen and Progesterone in mammary tissue (Ando, 2002).
Breast tissue sampled from pre-and post-menopausal women shows the inhibitory effects of Testosterone on breast cell proliferation (Hofling et al., Dimitrikakis et al.).
Testosterone hormone pellet therapy reduces breast cancer incidence from 243 per 100,000 women years (placebo arm of the Whomen’s Health Initiative) to 73 per 100,000 women years (Glazer, 2013).
BHRT Safety and Benefits
- FDA-approved Bioidentical hormones are preferred over standard hormone replacement because of their health benefits and safety profile. (E. Conway, DO, 2011)
