The Danger of Synthetic Hormones Versus The Benefits of Bio Identical

We all know that hormones has a crucial role to play in all phases of any woman’s life. The Hormone is Super Important and theres a huge demand from women pursuing hormone therapy - Would that be Bio - identical or synthetic ? That’s the Question !

Lets look into it in few words - Bio Identical hormones are designed to match exactly your body’s natural hormones , whereas Synthetic hormones can have a serious effects including links to higher risk of certain cancers.


These hormones are made in a lab. They are patented drugs or medications. These types of hormones have a similar effect to our own endogenous hormones. They are commonly used for hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and artificial reproductive technology (ART). The most common use of synthetic hormones is birth control. Despite the potential risks of synthetic hormones, these drugs are continually marketed and advertised to consumers, and part of the reason is due because of the pharmaceutical companies can patent synthetic hormones so technically it is in their best interest to market and sell these products if they can, although Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) found that women taking synthetic hormones had a higher risk to the following diseases :-

  • Breast Cancer

  • Blood Clots

  • Stroke

  • Dementia

  • Mood Changes

  • Depression

  • Memory Loss

  • Breast Lumps

The truth, there is one synthetic hormone drug has been making frequent appearances everywhere and it's making recovery amongst those women looking for relief from the effects of menopause by providing synthetic oestrogen in the form of pill and the pill was made using oestrogen from the uterine of pregnant mares (horse) . Now this is Scary !


The main difference between bio-identical hormones and synthetic hormones is their chemical make up. Synthetic hormones are not identically matched to those made naturally by the body as such synthetic hormones don't act the same as human hormones in the body and this is what can potentially lead to many health issues and diseases.

Whereas, Bio Identical hormones are the exact identical , the duplicates of steroid hormones, “Hormones that are identical in molecular structure to the hormones women make in their bodies” such as Oestrogen, DHEA, and progesterone. In layman’s terms — they offer an exact match for your body’s natural hormones.

  • Derived from plant sources (soy, wild yam etc)

  • Identical in molecular structure to human hormones

  • Individualised doses and strengths

Bio identical hormone therapy has been shown to improve the quality of Life in the long term by increasing bone density and specifically muscle mass and in addition can substantially reduce the risk of alzheimer’s disease and other causes of cognitive decline, as well as the risk old heart and blood vessel diseases, osteoporosis , insulin resistance and many more.
