BioIdentical Hormones are hormones that are chemically the same as those that the body produces. We supply hormones that are prepared from scratch using plant-derived, natural ingredients from FDA-approved sources. Bioidentical hormone replacement gives your body additional amounts of estradiol (the most important of the three human estrogens. The others are estriol and estrone) and testosterone.
