Natural Bioidentical hormones have an identical molecular structure to the bodies own natural hormones. They are formulated from a plant molecule called Diosgenin. Diosgenin and Saponin, are important precursors in the synthesis of natural progesterone.
The decline of progesterone in Aging males plays a role in increasing the conversation rate of Testosterone to DHT. Prolonged Stress further depletes progesterone because it increases the demand for cortisol. The process leaves less progesterone available for balancing estrogen.
Adding progesterone back into the body with Natural Bioidentical Hormones helps restore normal inhibition of 5-alpha-reductase, thus preventing testosterone from changing into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which stimulates the proliferation of prostate cells. Higher DHT levels also contributes to male pattern baldness.
In men, estrogen gradually rises with age, while saliva levels of progesterone and testosterone gradually fall with age. Thus, with Aging, Estrogen Dominance occurs and exposure to Xenoestrogens significantly adds to the problem.
Middle aged men are not immune to estrogen dominance that can lead to symptoms such as weight gain, large-than-normal breasts, gallbladder problems, anxiety and insomnia, and BPH prostate enlargement that leads to urinary problems that could potentially result in kidney failure.
Progesterone is vital to good health in men. It is the primary precursor of Adrenal hormones and of Testosterone.
Bioidentical hormone therapy is a proven libido and potency enhancer that can also boost fertility and protect men from cancer of the testicles and prostate. It stabilizes and normalizes hormone ratios without the dangerous side effects observed from using synthetic hormones.
