What is BioTe?

BioTe is a natural and personalized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) used to treat hormone deficiencies and imbalances. BioTe utilizes pellets that are molecularly identical to those found in the human body, meaning they present as and behave like active hormones, not just stimulants. It also aids the body in regulating hormone levels and hormone release.

How does BioTe hormone replacement therapy work?

BioTe pellets are derived from natural plant sources. The two primary hormone pellets being estradiol and testosterone. In the hormone pellet implantation procedure, after local anesthesia is applied, pellets are inserted into the fatty tissue under the skin of the patient. The bioidentical hormones then dissolve into the bloodstream over several months.

How often should BioTe hormone pellets be replaced?

The turnaround between hormone therapy sessions varies depending on stress, activity, age, and your body’s response. On average, men and women receive the natural hormone treatment every 3-6 months.

How long does it take to feel results from BioTe hormone pellet therapy?

Pellet implants can take anywhere from 24 to 72 hours to enter the bloodstream. For first-time hormone therapy patients, relief from symptoms can be felt as quickly as 3 days and can take as long as 3 weeks. After that, the continued effects of hormone pellet therapy are felt gradually over several months.

Why BioTe Hormone Pellets?

Aging, lifestyle, and disease can all cause a decline in internal hormone production, which results in a wide variety of symptoms that can leave you uncomfortable, if not in pain.

BioTe pellet therapy uses natural hormones made from plant sources, as opposed to synthetic hormones made with chemicals. Because these hormones are bioidentical, the body recognizes them as its own and reacts accordingly, making it a natural choice for hormone replacement therapy.

Regulating your BioTe hormone pellet therapy can be used to treat symptoms of hormone imbalances, promote better cellular health, and make life feel good again.

BioTe Hormone Therapy for Women

Hormone pellet therapy can help relieve symptoms in women suffering from hormone imbalance, which almost always involves irregular estrogen and or testosterone hormone levels; it’s most widely used to help alleviate menopausal symptoms. Estrogen is essential to women, and a decline in its production can lead to symptoms like low energy levels, low libido, and weight gain.

Millions of women have significantly improved their quality of life with hormone pellet therapy.

Some of the benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy for women include:

  • Balance and restoration of hormonal levels and bone density
  • Enhanced libido and energy levels
  • Improved sleep
  • Relief from hot flashes
  • Prevention against heart disease, breast cancer, joint pain, and the overall aging process
  • Support for muscle strength, memory, stamina, and skin elasticity

BioTe Hormone Therapy for Men

Hormone pellet therapy for men aids in the balance, regulation, and restoration of testosterone hormone levels. Testosterone is essential for the development of male sexual characteristics and strong muscles, in addition to keeping red blood cells and bone density at a healthy level. Testosterone also ensures proper sexual and reproductive performance.

Benefits of BHRT for men include:

  • Increased libido
  • Balancing of hormones in the body
  • Improvement in energy levels

  • Fights against heart disease

Side Effects

Among the millions of BioTe hormone pellet therapy recipients, less than 2% of patients experience side effects, and when side effects are present they’re typically mild and expected to wear off as your body adjusts to the restored balance in its hormone levels. Women may experience fluid retention, menstrual spotting, acne, and faster hair growth, and approximately 1% of women report thinning hair. Men may also experience acne, fluid retention, and speedy hair growth.

Why are BioTe hormone pellets better than other hormone replacement therapies?

Once pellets are inserted they last for months and keep hormone levels optimal and level making them very easy to remain compliant with therapy. Creams must be applied daily and often get saturated in the skin and are not able to be absorbed to an optimal level. Testosterone Injections are painful and must be given twice a week to keep hormone levels somewhat balanced and avoid rapid fluctuations and mood imbalances.
