What is Age Management and Hormone Replacement?

Hormone replacement therapy also known as bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is an integral part of an age management program. This involves the use of man-made hormones that are synthesized from plant extracts to optimize hormone levels in the body for enhancedhealth and vitality.

Testosterone and estrogen are the hormones produced in both men and women that are most essential for proper growth and sexual development. During aging, the level of these hormones becomes low, and this can lead to speeding up of the aging process. Hormone replacement therapy slows age-related changes and restores overall health.
