What are Bio-Identical Hormones?

Bio-identical hormones have the same chemical structure as hormones that are made by the human body. Structural differences that exist between human, synthetic and animal hormones can be responsible for side effects that are experienced when non-bio-identical hormones are used for replacement therapy. The term “bio-identical” does not indicate the source of the hormone, but rather
indicates that the chemical structure of the replacement hormone is identical to that of the hormone naturally found in the human body.
