Studies have shown that use of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can reduce a woman’s risk of developing heart disease, osteoporosis, and memory loss.
For men, low testosterone, for example can lead to fatigue, loss of muscle mass and strength, low libido, erectile dysfunction and/or depression. Replenishing lost testosterone can often produce dramatic improvements in a man’s physical, sexual and emotional health.
