Is Natural Testosterone Therapy Safe?

Posted by Tina Jones, N.P. on Feb 22, 2015 12:30:00 PM

There are many types of natural testosterone therapy, which calls for differentiation between them to fully answer the question as to whether they are safe. When you are looking into natural options, you want to find one that replaces low testosterone with something that is identical to the hormone. Bio-identical hormone therapy, for example, replaces testosterone with plant-derived substances that are identical to the testosterone that the body already produces.

What is Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy?

Bio-identical hormone therapy uses bio-identical hormones, which have the same molecular and chemical structure, according to research published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings. This means that the body sees the hormones exactly as they see the hormones the body produces. This eliminates the risk of side effects and ensures a much higher level of effectiveness compared to synthetic hormone replacement therapy.

What Are the Advantages of Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy?

These hormones work to relieve the symptoms of andropause in men, as well as menopause in women. This is proven, according to research published by Harvard Medical School. The reason bio-identical hormones work so well is because the naturally-derived hormones are made especially for the patient based on their hormone levels. This means that patients are getting the exact dose that they need to restore healthy testosterone levels in the body.

To sum it up, natural testosterone therapy is safe when you choose bio-identical hormone therapy. It is also highly effective and will alleviate the symptoms of andopause in men so that they do not have to deal with symptoms like fatigue, reduced muscle mass and breast tissue growth.
