What is a hormone pellet?

Did you know that hormone replacement using pellet implants has been around for more than 70 years?  In fact, scientists have published positive research on the benefits of this therapy in authoritative international journals for decades.

Bioidentical pellet therapy was originally developed in Europe during the 1930s. It proved an excellent treatment for hormone deficiencies, especially in menopause. The highly-respected pioneer of endocrinology, Dr. Robert B. Greenblatt, learned about this method and introduced it to his U.S. colleagues in 1939. Today, practitioners use pellet implants to restore hormonal balance in men and women of all ages.

Best of all they are natural, safe, and effective

Pellet Implants: Safe, Effective, Convenient BHRT

When properly administered, the pellet delivery system provides safe and effective BHRT. In fact, it remains the only form of delivery that closely mirrors what the human ovary and testicle do. This method ensures the same steady, around-the-clock, low dosages the body once created. You won’t have to change patches, rub on creams, or remember to take a pill. And you won’t experience the radical surges and drops in blood levels as with other methods. Pellet implants even deliver more when the body needs it—like during exercise or periods of stress.

The ideal hormone delivery system

Right amount of hormones

Creams, pills and patches all deliver wildly, inconsistent amounts of hormones unnaturally released into the body that does not mimic how the body naturally delivers hormones. Pellet delivery system is consistent and ongoing as the body requires it. You don’t have to worry about taking a pill, or a patch falling off, or a million other factors that make creams, pills, and patches an unreliable way to deliver hormones. Pellets remain the only delivery system that provides steady blood serum levels over time. This was clearly documented in a 1993 study conducted by Smith and Studd

Simple Safe Pellet Insertion

Once inserted, a steady, low dose of natural hormone flows directly into the blood stream whenever the body needs it. This gives the body the ability to control the release of the hormone just as it did when the ovaries and testicles were working normally. Our method utilizes our proprietary dosing site, BioCalc (patent pending) to prescribe the precise hormones, specifically for your needs.

Promote and Preserve Bone Density

As we age and our hormone levels shift dramatically, maintaining normal bone density becomes critical to good health. Fluctuating levels of estrogen and testosterone decrease bone strength and increase the chance of fractures. Women who undergo premature surgical menopause also remain at greater risk of developing osteoporosis, making it critical to check their hormone levels. Demonstrated the four-fold increase in bone density over oral estrogen. 2.5 times greater than patches and 8.3% per year for pellet therapy

Avoid the hormone roller coaster

Many patients who have been on creams, pills and patches discover that their hormone treatment can create side effects over time. Non-pellet methods provide an irregular and unreliable dosing amount, which produces a roller coaster-like effect in the body.

Over time, extra hormones that are stored in the body can spill back into your system and cause a progressive overdosing. This can cause a cascade of imbalances and problems that you were trying to treat in the first place!

Pellets deliver a steady and measured dose of the hormones your body needs, only as it needs them. From our decades of clinical experience, we have found that it is the only reliable way to provide an optimal and balanced levels of hormones in to the body.
