Even though hormones decrease with age, replenishing them with Bio-Identical Hormones can result in increased energy, better memory, healthier heart, stronger bones and a more youthful glow!
Bio-identical hormones are chemically identical to those the body produces. While hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone naturally decrease with age, the use of bio-identical hormones, as part of a prescribed hormone replacement therapy, can help to restore hormones more youthful levels. This can result in more energy, better memory, a healthier heart, stronger bones, and a more youthful glow.
What Can Occur When Hormones are Unbalanced in Both Men and Women?
Hormone imbalance in both men and women can result in disruptions in
- Sleep cycles
- Appetite and metabolic function
- Mood and stress levels
- Muscle function
- Reproduction and sexual functions
- Heart rate
- Growth and development
Imbalances in hormones can wreak havoc on your body, from fatigue and depression to muscle aches, dry skin, and thinning hair. Women often experience hormone imbalance during menopause as hot flashes and vaginal dryness, along with mood swings. Men often notice hormone imbalance by a decreased sex drive, osteoporosis and decreased muscle mass.
