Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
In essence, hormones regulate your body's functions and keep things running smoothly. However, these hormones can become imbalanced or deficient in a condition known as hormone imbalance. Hormone replacement therapy is one type of treatment designed to correct this problem, but not all forms are created equally. BioTE® hormone pellet therapy goes above and beyond in the treatment of hormone imbalance to provide the best results. Hormone pellet therapy has several advantages over these other methods. These benefits include:
- It has the same molecular structure as human hormones
- It lasts longer than other treatments, typically around three to five months
- It's the most widely studied form of natural hormone therapy
- It provides a steady stream of hormones in your blood
- It provides individualized dosing
- It's inserted under the skin

Is BioTE hormone pellet therapy better than other hormone replacement or supplement options?
BioTE offers several advantages over the other options available, including patches, shots, pills, and creams. BioTE hormone pellet therapy provides a bio-identical hormone that the body doesn’t metabolize into byproducts. Instead, the body is able to extract the exact amount of hormone that it needs from the pellets. The pellets contain no synthetic ingredients or fillers, so they will dissolve on their own over time.
