Hormone Replacement Therapy with bioidentical pregnenolone may help improve brain function and help prevent osteoporosis and other bone diseases. 1

Compounded Pregnenolone For Affordable, Custom bHRT

The widespread belief that women have no choice but to accept menopause symptoms and its health risks robs women of a fulfilling life postmenopause. Learn about all of your options and take control of your hormones!

What Is Hormone Balancing?

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a process in which externally-made hormones are introduced to the body to restore hormonal balance.

What Is Pregnenolone?

Pregnenolone is the precursor to the other steroid sex hormones in the body. This means that pregnenolone is the first substance in the chain of metabolic transformations (steroidogenesis) that lead to the creation of the other sex hormones. The body synthesizes pregnenolone from cholesterol.

Why Does Pregnenolone Do?

Pregnenolone's importance in the body is not just limited to role in steroidogenesis. Studies show it has neuroprotective2 and osteolytic (related to bones) protective properties.1 Pregnenolone may be prescribed to prevent cognitive decline1 and as an adjunct medication in schizophrenia treatment.2

bHRT VS HRT

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (bHRT) is HRT but with substances that are molecular and structural matches to internally-made hormones. HRT, without the "b" in front, may refer to the use of nonidentical hormones.

What is Compounded Medicine?

Compounded medications are made by experts who develop recipes specifically for each patient based on their medical condition and needs. Compounded prescriptions are prepared in small batches and do not require commercial fillers and preservatives that industrial pharmaceuticals require for a long shelf life.

Another bonus: Custom-compounded medications may cost up to 50% to 75% less than commercial prescriptions.

What Are FSA and HSA Accounts?

FSA's and HSA's are federal programs that make it easy for you to enjoy significant tax benefits for qualified out-of-pocket medical expenses. Each program works a little differently but with each you avoid federal, state and local income taxes on any funds that you use for qualified medical expenses.

FSA tax benefits are administered by your job. Funds in an amount that you decide —within the program limits—are withdrawn from your paycheck without any payroll tax deductions.

Tax benefits with an HSA may be administered that way but there are also other options.

How Do I Use My FSA/HSA Funds?

You can use a pre-loaded debit card or get reimbursed from your FSA or HSA account after you make your purchase or a combination of both methods.
