The male body is resilient and it works efficiently when given the right components. On the cellular level, the hormone testosterone helps the body operate as expected. Low testosterone, or “Low T”, issues include a number of outward symptoms and over time, can be the cause of many physical issues. Men have an ongoing drop in their testosterone levels from their 20s onwards. As the testosterone drops noticeably in the 40s into the 50s, doctors have started referring to this as “andropause” – rather, the male equivalent to menopause.

BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY (BHRT) PELLETS
At Optimal Bio, pellets are the preferred method of hormone replacement delivery. Over the years, Optimal Bio has worked with compounding pharmaceutical companies to produce the purest pellets possible. Small pellets, roughly the size of a grain of rice, are placed in fatty tissue of the buttocks or lower back area. The pellets can deliver a dose of either testosterone for men, or testosterone/estrogen for women. To develop the pellet we are using for men, we use organic yams as the precursor to the testosterone. The BHRT pellet is 99.5% pure yam-hormone. The other 0.5% is composed of stearic acid acts as a lubricant, holding the pellet together in its proper form. (It is important to note that this stearic acid is not absorbed at all into your system.) If the pellet had been too hard it wouldn’t dissolve properly. If the pellet had been too soft, however, it would have disintegrated in the body. The ratio that we currently use is the best possible pellet for our purposes. Additionally, each BHRT pellet implant lasts for several months and provides a substantial and stable release of hormones into the body.
