Hormones play an important role in our body. To put it simply, the hormones, as regulatory systems, act as messengers by interacting with target cells and organs. However, as we age, our hormone production changes. This could result to hormone imbalance, which in turn could lead to certain side effects and symptoms.
Imbalance in men is signified by low levels of testosterone. This can lead to low sex drive sexual dysfunction, chronic fatigue, increased body fat, loss of muscle mass, decreased bone mass, irritability, depression, mood changes, brain fog and lower mental capacity. On the other hand, hormonal imbalance in women may manifest in the following signs and symptoms: fatigue, night sweats, hot flashes, decreased sex drive, insomnia, weight gain, irritability, anxiety, cold hands and feet, and depression.
To balance the hormones in both men and women, a new therapy has been created. BioTE Hormone Therapy was developed to counter and balance the problems that may arise from possible hormone imbalance.
What is Biote Hormone Therapy
The Biote pellet insertion is safe because the pellets are plant-derived and are identical to the hormones naturally produced by the body. The great thing about biote pellet therapy is that it can be adjusted to fit your individual needs.
The therapy may come in oral, topical or in pellet forms. Of the three, biote pellet insertion is the most advantageous. It is more consistent in terms of administration and dosing,
Why Biote Pellet Therapy Is Better
Oral and transdermal forms of hormone therapy typically produce what is called a roller coaster hormone level. This could result to fluctuations and mood and energy on the patient. On the other hand, Biote hormone therapy is a method that provides consistent and sustained hormone levels throughout up to six months. It is consistent and does not cause hormonal fluctuations.
In Biote pellet insertion, the pellets are implanted under the skin, which consistently releases small and physiologic doses of hormones, resulting to full optimization. Moreover, in this form of therapy, the pellets are completely natural, producing safer and more natural results on patients.
