Bioidentical Hormones for Men
Although there is more publicity for bioidentical hormone therapy in relation to issues for women's health, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can also be highly effective in treating men with low testosterone. Bioidentical hormones for men can help alleviate symptoms of low testosterone such as infertility, decreased sexual desire, erectile dysfunction (ED), hair loss, decreased muscle mass and/or osteoporosis.
What are bioidentical hormones for men? Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy provides an alternative to traditional hormone replacement therapy. Unlike pharmaceutical hormones, bioidentical hormones are made from plant derivatives, so they match the body's unique chemistry. They are still made in a laboratory, but because of their unique nature based formulation they match the bodies chemistry. A bioidentical hormone is identical to the hormones that your body would create on it's own.
The benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy for men include the following:
- Renewed vitality and positive mental attitude.
- Restored muscle mass
- Restored libido
- Restored sexual function
- Restored energy
There is some controversy due to the fact that the government does not directly regulate bioidentical hormones because they are a natural, rather than pharmaceutical product. This is why it is important to receive bioidentical hormone therapy from a qualified medical professional rather than buying it over the internet. Receiving bioidentical hormone therapy from a health care provider ensures that your treatment will be supported with blood tests, and that the effectiveness of the product and dosage will be closely monitored.
