At Longevity our compounding pharmacists create customized HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) that can closely mimic your optimum natural hormone levels.
Bio-Identical HRT, means we can create hormones that are the exact same as the ones naturally occurring in your body. By using these hormones you can mitigate some of the the symptoms associated with menopause and low testosterone, while minimizing side effects and risks associated with commercially produced synthetic hormones.
An advantage of bio-identical hormones is doses can be easily adjusted and fine-tuned to control your symptoms and provide you with the health benefits you desire.
Hormones perform many complex functions in your body. When they become imbalanced or deficient, people can suffer unpleasant symptoms.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has many benefits for both women and men that suffer from hormone imbalances and deficiencies.
For example, Bio-Identical HRT can help:
- Restore vaginal lubrication

How Are Bio-identical & Synthetic Hormones Different?
Bio-identical hormones are made to match the same hormones your body produces, opposed to synthetic hormones which are chemically and structurally different than human hormones. Synthetic hormones can cause undesirable side effects that you may not experience with bio-identical hormones.
Bio-identical hormones are chemically identical to the hormones produced by the body. They produce fewer unwanted side effects. They are also easily eliminated from the body.
Why Are Bio-Identical Hormones Not Commercially Available?
Because they are naturally occurring, bio-identical hormones can not be patented. Therefore manufacturers have no incentive to fund research and development costs to market these substances. As a result, physicians receive little information on these hormones.
