What are bioidentical hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are man-made hormones similar to natural hormones. The therapy using Bioidentical Hormones Dubai is known as Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). These hormones must have the same molecular structure as the body’s natural hormones. Hormones having the same molecular structure can be combined with the help of medicated fluid to maintain the target of hormonal level in the body. They can also be mixed with blood and saliva to balance the hormonal level in the body.
Bioidentical hormones reverse the deficiency of hormones in the body while preventing the chance of illness. In contrast, synthetic hormone replacement therapy has many drawbacks. According to research, it poses a higher risk of breast cancer, heart diseases, brain stroke, blood clotting, and other reproductive disorders.
Traditional HRT vs. Bioidentical HRT
Traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) uses different hormones than bioidentical HRT. Bioidentical hormones have a chemical composition similar to natural body hormones. Generally, bioidentical hormones are made from plant estrogens. On the other hand, traditional HRT uses hormones produced from other synthetic sources. Since their composition is different, both types of hormones have a varying impact at the cellular level. Bioidentical hormones behave more naturally because they are identical to the hormones produced by the body.
Although it is suitable for both men and women, most men prefer getting a Testosterone Booster Injection in Dubai while women go for BHRT.
Why are bioidentical hormones used?

How do bioidentical hormones work?
The hormones used in Hormone Replacement Dubai are the same as natural hormones in molecular structure. These hormones are not natural, instead developed medically from herbs, such as soy and yams. Herbs used to produce identical hormones are ground to micro size in the laboratories before penetrating the body. Then, these are synthesized and used afterward. Due to the similar biological composition, the body cannot differentiate bioidentical hormones from the natural ones produced by the ovaries.
