Bio-Identical Hormone Pellets by bioTE Medical are plant-derived, and chemically changed in a laboratory until they are identical to what your body would naturally produce. BHRT is customizable; in other words, it can be adjusted to fit your needs, unlike conventional HRT, which has a few standard dosage strengths.
Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy – which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient – bioTE Medical Bio-Identical Hormone Pellets is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” effect. Pellet implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.
Because the hormones used are completely natural, Pellet Therapy is ideal for patients wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
