Any product that the human body creates is described as being “bioidentical”. Therefore, the bioidentical hormones that we manufacture and provide to our customers contain no differences at all from the hormones that your body would naturally produce on its own.
Bioidentical hormones are produced either in the human body, or they are artificially manufactured. No plant on earth is able to produce bioidentical hormones. Should anyone claim that a specific plant is able to fulfil the same function as a bioidentical hormone, and suggest that this plant is as effective a treatment as a bioidentical hormone, then that person is omitting a number of deficiencies inherent within these plant products. For example, soy-based estrogen supplements are at times compared to bioidentical hormones. It is true that both soy and wild yam possess a substance resembling precursor hormones. Consequently, this substance is often marketed as a viable substitute for real estrogen. Unfortunately, however, these plant-based chemicals are rejected by the human body, which is unable to recognise them despite their similarities. As a result, the plant product is simply digested as if it were food. No hormonal effect occurs within the body.
Men derive their main source of testosterone from the testes.
Alternatively, bioidentical testosterone is manufactured by pharmaceutical companies, as are their synthetic counterparts. Soya and wild yam extracts are used in the manufacturing process, but constitute just a part of this process, rather than functioning as simple substitutes.
Both testosterone and progesterone are what are known as androgens. The function of androgens is to manifest and maintain masculine sexual attributes.
Despite this function, testosterone is produced by both men and woman. The difference lies in the amount produced: testosterone levels in men tend to be far higher than in women’s bodies. Consequently, women do not develop masculine attributes such as facial hair, strong muscle growth, and deepened voices.
In men’s bodies, however, testosterone is essential to the initial development and maintenance of male sex organs. This is true also of the growth and development of strong muscles, deeper voices, the production of red blood cells, male hair growth (such as on the face, chest, and back), body shape, and sexual appetite.
It is because of testosterone that men have a low fat ratio. It is also testosterone that results in improved blood vessel development close to the skin.
Testosterone is also necessary for other anabolic effects, including the retention of nitrogen, which is vital for erections, calcium, sodium, potassium, chloride, and phosphate. These effects result in higher rates of bone growth.
