Hormone Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is an increasingly popular treatment for a variety of patient health complaints. Health professionals are turning to bioidentical hormones derived from wild yam, specifically Dioscorea villosa (plants containing unique compounds which are extracted as identical replicas of hormones the body produces). Technically, the body can't distinguish bioidentical hormones from the ones produced in the body. With laboratory data combined with symptoms and patient histories, clinicians can determine therapies to help augment hormone levels and support the body's innate hormone production.

The Hormones and Hormone Modifiers

BioMatrix DHEA, and Pregnenolone are formulated using extraction of the steroidal component of the wild yam (Dioscorea villosa). The active ingredients are suspended in an alcohol solution to optimize oral absorption. In contrast to micronized oral tablets, which appear to be absorbed only 40-50%, BioMatrix hormone absorption is approximately 95%.

BioMatrix Licorice Root Extract (LRE) is designed for use in supporting the adrenals when cortisol output is depressed. One of the primary compounds in licorice root is glycyrrhizin (a substance that has a molecular structure similar to corticosteroids). As such, LRE aids in hypoadrenalism by partially blocking the enzyme that converts cortisol to cortisone, thus sparing cortisol.

Est-Adapt and Pro-Adapt are oil-based formulas containing estriol and progesterone, respectively. They are used primarily for helping women to establish optimal levels of these key hormones to alleviate a myriad of symptoms. The dosing options and quality of ingredients in BioMatrix oil hormones is superior to the competition in numerous ways.
