Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is felt to be a safer option compared to more traditional prescribed synthetic hormones for several reasons. One they are made from yams and soybeans rather than synthetic compounds so that their structure is much more similar to our own hormones. Two, customized and compounded bioidentical hormones seek to restore balance based on specialized hormone testing to deliver the appropriate doses for each man. Three, bioidentical HRT gives daily physiologic doses in a cream form to ensure natural physiologic daily levels. This is in sharp contrast to more traditional testosterone replacement which is injected in supra-physiologic doses that causes an unwanted high peak/low trough testosterone level.
