Bioidentical Hormone Replacement For Dummies

Published under: Hormone Health, Women

* Bioiden­ti­cal refers to the shape of the mol­e­cule — not the source of the hormone.

* Bioiden­ti­cal hor­mones are derived from plants.

* How­ev­er, just because hor­mones are plant-based does­n’t mean the mol­e­cules match.

* Bioiden­ti­cal hor­mones can be applied trans­der­mal­ly (onto the skin).
