Bio-identical testosterone hormone therapy uses a processed hormone that comes from plants. Estrogen progesterone and testosterone are the most commonly used bio indistinguishable chemicals. Some prescription forms of bio-identical hormones are already manufactured by pharmaceutical companies. The primary difference between synthetic or synthesized hormones and bio identical hormones is accuracy. Biological hormones mimic the exact molecular structure of naturally occurring hormones resulting in hormones that works much better than synthetic forms.

As bio-identical hormone replacement therapy has become more popular over the past two decades, a lot of speculation has been made about his treatment option. One of these assumptions is that bio-identical means natural while synthetic means made in the laboratory. But when debating bio-identical testosterone versus synthetic it’s important to remember this truth: both forms of testosterone are processed in the term synthetic a word that describes substances produced by chemical synthesis. What makes bio-identical testosterone different from traditional hormone medications? Is it chemical makeup? Moreover, the scientific difference between the two testosterone molecules may not make much of a difference to the consumer.

However, there is often a significant difference between the treatment experience you have with bio-identical hormone practitioners versus general practitioners who work with conventional medicine. It’s this difference that matters for men who struggle with low testosterone symptoms and can ultimately determine the success of treatment.
