Hormones are regulatory substances produced by the body and transported in tissue fluids such as blood to stimulate specific cells or tissues into action. Acting like chemical messengers, hormones deliver their message to their respective receptors. Biochemically speaking, the structure of a molecule determines it’s function and properties.
The term bioidentical does not indicate the source of the hormone but rather the chemical structure. Bioidentical hormones are originally derived from a molecule called diosgenin in either soy or yam. Through a series of chemical processes the plant molecule, which is structurally similar to a steroid hormone, is converted to the specific human hormone molecule in a laboratory. The final product has no trace of the plant-just the pure biologically identical hormone. Bioidentical hormones convey the same action and effect, are metabolized into the same downstream metabolites, have same binding affinity, and are expected to restore normal physiology.
It is the molecular difference between non-biologically identical hormones and biologically identical hormones that is responsible for their different actions in the human body. It is especially important to note that different hormones do not have the same risk profile especially in regard to cardiovascular, clotting, and breast cancer risk factors. Confusion about different types of HRT is due to the lack of clear distinction between the molecular formulas and the lack of focus on their significantly different effects in the body.
