Posted February 04, 2019 in Hormone Replacement Therapy

There are many benefits that come with age, including wisdom, patience, and understanding. Sadly, there are also downsides to having an aging body. As the years pass, your body is not able to produce some of the critical compounds that helped keep you looking young, healthy, and feeling energized and vital. Although hormone production decreases with age, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy from Rejuvalife can help to restore the energy you had in your youth and enhance your overall health and wellness.

What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

The hormones in your body control most of its functions, including appetite and metabolism, to immune response, sex drive, and moods. As you begin to age, the levels of hormones available in your body to control these functions begins to decrease. This can result in an array of unwanted side effects. Many men and women choose to treat these symptoms with hormone replacement therapy or HRT. Unlike traditional drug therapies, bioidentical hormones are derived from botanicals and are identical to the natural hormones created by your body.

What are the Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

What is the Difference Between Bioidentical HRT and Traditional HRT?
