Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a natural, human identical, approach to optimizing your hormone levels. There is no synthetic ingredients in these medications. The molecule of the natural hormone is identical in structure to the hormone naturally found in the body. This allows your body to absorb and utilize these hormones more efficiently. These pure biologically identical hormones are found either by extraction from plants or synthetically manufactured.
Thyroid hormone is a metabolic hormone secreted by the thyroid gland. This hormone affects every cell in the body. It regulates temperature, metabolism, brain function, fat breakdown, and cholesterol levels. People who suffer from low thyroid function tend to experience fatigue and low energy, forgetfulness, mental confusion, depression, arthritis-like pain, susceptibility to colds and infections, as well as slower thinking. While these aspects are considered all part of normal aging, this also is secondary to thyroid insufficiency. Research has shown that improving thyroid levels will alleviate many symptoms of thyroid insufficiency and allow our system to function more effectively and efficiently.
