Hormone fluctuations caused by natural aging can have many negative side effects for many men and women. BioTE is an innovative treatment that uses bioidentical hormones to ease the symptoms of aging with minimally invasive, natural-based treatment.
What is BioTE?
BioTE is a form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) that uses hormone pellets to balance out hormone levels in aging men and women. These pellets can be customized with a blend of estrogen and/or testosterone, depending on each patient’s individual needs. The pellets are biodegradable and will be naturally dissolved in the body over the course of 3-5 months for women and 5-6 months for men. As the BioTE hormone pellets dissolve, plant-based hormones identical to the ones in the human body will be released and gradually absorbed.
BioTE has many physical and emotional benefits, including:
1. Decreased Joint Pain
Achy joints and stiffness are common concerns for aging men and women. Oftentimes, joint pain is strongly correlated to a lack of sex hormones like estrogen and testosterone. Replenishing hormonal levels with BioTE can ease joint pain to improve mobility and help older people stay active and continue enjoying the activities they love.
2. Memory Boost
Women in menopause and middle-aged men with low testosterone commonly experience forgetfulness and short-term memory. Hormones have a direct effect on brain function and are necessary to keep the brain healthy as you age. BioTE hormone therapy improves both short-term memory and the long-term effects of memory loss.
3. Encourage Hair Growth
Menopausal and post-menopausal women often experience hair thinning caused by hormone imbalances. Estrogen and testosterone send signals to the hair follicles to enter their active growth phase. Low levels of these hormones lead to less frequent and shorter active cycles which results in thinning hair and balding. Hormone replacement can prevent future hair loss and stimulate the growth of new, healthy hair.
4. Increase Mental Clarity
If you’re experiencing brain fog as you age, you are not alone. Many menopausal women and men with low testosterone feel that their brains are not as sharp as they used to be. BioTE can improve cognitive function and mental clarity to help you stay competitive at work and think more clearly in all aspects of your daily life.
5. Better Mood
Mood swings are one of the most common symptoms of menopause and they are often caused by hormone imbalance. Mood swings and other menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, and vaginal dryness can be improved with hormone replacement therapy. People often report a better overall mood and a significant decrease in mood swings.
6. Improved Muscle Mass
Testosterone is vital for muscle growth and retention of muscle mass. Men experiencing low T are often frustrated that they are not seeing the same results from weightlifting as they once did. Hormone replacement can help you rebuild muscle to stay fit and feel more confident in your appearance.
7. Reduces Anxiety and Depression
Low levels of sex hormones cause mood swings and chronic feelings of anxiety of intense sadness. Research has proven that hormone replacement therapy can reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression in 3-6 months.
8. Decreased Abdominal Fat
Sex hormones have a vital role in fat distribution and metabolism. Age-related hormone loss can make it difficult to prevent weight gain and fat buildup, especially on the stomach and hips. When BioTE is combined with physical activity and a healthy diet, patients can expect to lose belly fat and maintain their lean figures.
