Benefits of BHRT

The Many Benefits of BHRT

The aging process can sometimes be both physically and emotionally challenging. BHRT is a fantastic way to get back to feeling like your former healthier, happier self! BHRT is beneficial to both men and women who desire optimizing the balance of their hormones for a new lease on life!

Boosted energy levels

For both men and women, a reduction in the levels of progesterone, DHEA, and testosterone can leave them feeling extremely tired and experiencing reduced energy levels at all times of the day.

As a result, their day-to-day life can be negatively impacted. Chronic fatigue can disable both men and women to the point where they are unable to carry out normal daily activities. Patients who undergo BHRT can benefit from better sleep, higher motivation levels, and more alertness.

Improved Sex Drive

As BHRT restores the level of hormones within the body, both men and women can experience an improved sex drive. Often patients have described an increased libido and a more satisfying experience with their partner after undergoing BHRT.

Improved quality of sleep

It’s common for people who are suffering from decreased levels of certain hormones to suffer from hot flashes, particularly at night while they are trying to sleep.

After undergoing BHRT, patients have found that these symptoms decrease and they experience a better quality of sleep – resulting in higher energy levels and a general feeling of improved wellness and balance in their lives.

Some benefits differ depending on the sex of the patient:


Reduced Vaginal Dryness

As menopause takes hold, women can often be affected by a condition called vaginal atrophy. This condition presents symptoms such as vaginal dryness, pain during sex, and (in some cases) itching and discomfort.

As BHRT can be used to increase levels of estrogen, women who undergo the procedure often experience increased vaginal secretions, which eases pain during sex and increases overall vaginal comfort.

Prevents hot flashes

During menopause women often experience hot flashes due to fluctuating hormone levels. BHRT can decrease the frequency of hot flashes, often preventing these episodes from occurring at all.


Reduced risk of heart disease and other medical conditions

As men get older, testosterone levels can plummet. This causes a hormone imbalance and an increased risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes. Testosterone has been proven to help reduce the risk of these diseases that are linked to the aging process; therefore BHRT can reduce the risk of these medical conditions by balancing testosterone levels.

Improved workout effectiveness

As men age, their workouts can often become less effective than when they were younger. No matter how often they work out, their fitness levels just aren’t what they used to be.

By increasing levels of testosterone, they are able to work out to their maximum potential, helping them to reach new fitness goals and live a fit and healthy lifestyle.
