Hormone imbalances can occur at any age due to illness or stress, but they also often accompany the aging process. Women find their primary sex hormones – estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone– decrease as they move toward menopause. Men also experience hormonal changes as they age or due to medical conditions; low levels of testosterone can cause unpleasant symptoms such as fatigue, mood swings, joint aches and lack of drive.
Women can experience a number of uncomfortable symptoms, both in menopause and in younger years. These include:
Women can also gain weight unexpectedly due to hormonal shifts.
Men experience unwanted symptoms when testosterone levels are too low. These include:
SottoPelle bioidentical hormone therapy can restore testosterone levels and help you feel more like you did when you were younger.
Bioidentical hormones are all-natural hormones made from plant ingredients that precisely match those created by your body. SottoPelle bioidentical hormones are made by compressing natural hormones into very small pellets, which are slowly absorbed over time. Because they match the same molecules of our own hormones, they hit the target organs more cleanly, so your body can use the hormones effectively.
Bioidentical hormones are safe and effective in reducing troublesome symptoms. There is also an increasing amount of evidence in the medical literature demonstrating long term health benefits for men and women. They can be customized to provide just the hormones you need to get back into balance and feel “right” again. Men get just the right dose of testosterone and women receive the correct mix of estrogen and testosterone.
