What is Hormone Therapy For Men?

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) can be used to correct hormone imbalances or hormone decreases in the male body.

The way this works is that BHRT can use hormones that are identical in their molecular structure to the hormones that are produced naturally in the body. These identical hormones will help to treat and relieve symptoms of hormonal imbalances.

Many men choose to try BHRT to treat Andropause, also known as Male Menopause. BHRT for men is a safe treatment that will naturally metabolize Bioidentical Hormones and treat low testosterone levels. A physician normally prescribes this treatment for patients who have seen a steady decline in their testosterone levels. This is common for men beginning in their 30s and seen most often in their 40s and 50s. Many men will experience emotional and physical changes as these testosterone levels decline and hormones begin to change.

Testosterone is a hormone that 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.

Other benefits of BHRT for men include:

  • Increased libido
  • Balancing of hormones in the body
  • Improvement in energy levels
  • More production of lean muscle mass
  • A toned body
  • Better concentration and memory
  • Higher production of sperm
  • Allows men to burn fat easier
  • Better sleep at night
  • Treatment for depression, hypogonadism, and andropause
  • Fights against heart disease
