Benefits of Bio-Identical Hormones: Our Top 6

Consider the benefits of bio-identical hormones to keep your hormones balanced and making sure you feel good and lead a healthy, productive life. When hormone levels drop and become unbalanced, energy levels, the feeling of well-being and many other important functions drop right along with them. When it’s time to replace those dwindling hormones, there are several ways of accomplishing this. However, the type of replacement therapy you choose should be the most accurate and safe, without side effects. 

A Safe Way to Replace Hormones

What better way to balance out declining hormone levels than with a compound that comes from natural sources that are bio-identical – meaning they contain the exact same molecular structure – to the hormones that are produced naturally in the body. This gives the bio-identical hormones the ability to be effective at a deep, molecular level.


The benefits of bio-identical hormones using BHRT are many. Let’s take a look at just a few of them.


  • BHRT mimics the hormones your body produces naturally, so no side effects
  • BHRT boosts the sex drive
  • It aids in reducing body fat
  • It returns that sense of wellbeing, while decreasing depression and anxiety
  • “Brain fog” declines, giving you more clarity of thought
  • The body regains the ability to build muscle while losing fat
  • Hair growth and nail strength will increase
  • BHRT increases bone density
  • Balanced hormones aid in giving the body a good night’s sleep

Emotional Benefits of BHRT

Lowered hormone levels have a direct influence on your state of mind. When certain hormone levels become too low – especially estrogen – this can lead to an increase in cortisol production. Cortisol is the “fight or flight” hormone that, when out of balance, causes unnecessary stress, anger and hostility. Most women have a higher level of cortisol than men, and these levels can increase with menopause. 


Emotional benefits of bio-identical hormones aid in balancing the cortisol level, thus leading to a calmer state of mind.

Physical Benefits of BHRT

Continuing with the benefits of lowering cortisol levels through BHRT, there are many negative physical effects of too much of this stress hormone. A few of these are high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and excess body fat. Since women tend to have higher cortisol levels than men, it is important to have your hormone levels checked.


When implementing a regimen of BHRT, your body finally has a way to bring down cortisol production, which, in turn, aids in protecting you from some serious health problems.

Benefits of Bio-Identical Hormones for Your Relationships

One impactful effect of low hormone levels is a loss of or drop in libido. Estrogen in women and testosterone in men are major players in keeping the desire for sex alive, and progesterone also plays a part. When a woman hits menopause and is no longer ovulating, estrogen and progesterone hormones will drop significantly. Men will experience lowering testosterone levels as they age. By replacing these dropping hormone levels using BHRT, libido increases, along with the desire for intimacy with your partner.

Bone Density, Muscle Mass & Weight Management

Although osteoporosis – thinning bone – occurs in women more than men, both genders are susceptible. One cause of decreased bone density is a drop in estrogen and testosterone levels. Another is increased cortisol. Bringing these hormones back into balance can aid in reversing this process. If the bones haven’t been subjected to thinning, then hormone replacement can prevent this. The physical benefits of bio-identical hormones extend well beyond weight management.


Another symptom of hormone imbalance is an increase of body fat and loss of muscle mass. As we age and our hormones become unbalanced we lose vital energy. The more muscle mass you have, the faster your metabolism. When we age, muscle mass decreases and metabolism slows down. There are many hormones involved in maintaining weight and muscle mass.


Maintaining a healthy body weight involves many things.

  • Keep active. Regular exercise helps build muscle in order to burn more fat. Taking a 25 to 30 minute walk at least five days a week will help. This aerobic exercise is the best way to burn calories.
  • Implement a healthy diet. Stay away from processed and pre-packaged food. Check labels for added sugar and artificial ingredients. Eat more vegetables, fruit, whole grains and lean protein. 
  • Skipping meals will not help you lose weight. When you don’t eat, your rate of metabolism goes way down. Try eating a few smaller meals each day.
  • Get enough sleep – between seven and nine hours. Lack of sleep may produce an abundance of insulin, which can lead to increased fat storage.
  • Get started with the benefits of bio-identical hormones. This will make your journey to maintaining a healthy weight and good muscle mass easier to achieve.

Benefits of BHRT & Your Body

Bio-identical hormones are completely identical at a molecular level to naturally occurring hormones in your body. Your body cannot tell the difference, and uses these hormones just as if it produced them. The body assimilates bio-identical hormones very easily to balance the levels without risks or side effects.

One very important fact to note – bio-identical hormone replacement therapy differs from other hormone replacement methods in that BHRT dosages are compounded to the precise amount your body needs, whereas other methods are only available in pre-measured doses.
