Bioidentical Hormones vs. Synthetic Hormones

The hormones in your body fit into receptors like puzzle pieces. Loss of hormones creates an imbalance, and you begin suffering from the symptoms described above. You need to correct the imbalance by adding hormones, but since your hormones are unique and fit into receptors (like puzzle pieces), it’s absolutely crucial to add the right ones.

This is where bioidentical hormones differ from synthetic hormones.

While both types are created in a lab, bioidentical hormones exactly match the natural hormones in your body at the molecular level.

Synthetic hormones, on the other hand, have chemicals added to them and create shapes that do not fit seamlessly into the receptors—remember the puzzle piece analogy? Your body doesn’t metabolize these synthetic hormones properly, which can lead to uncomfortable side effects.
