The best answer is because they “do your body good”.
What in the world does that mean?
As both men and women age (grow older, for us non politically correct) the production of hormones decreases and with the decrease, “symptoms” begin to appear. We relate the obvious to the decrease: hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and decreased libido for women and decreased sexual performance for men.
However, some symptoms experienced, but infrequently realized to be hormonally related, are decreased energy, muscle mass, focus and mental clarity. In addition, mood changes and lack of motivation can be related to hormonal decline.
The development of chronic disease such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, bone loss and cancer are also increased with hormonal decline. Restoring hormonal balance not only alleviates the above detailed symptoms, but also helps to decrease the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes and decreases the risk of Alzheimer’s for women by 50% and 70% for men. Cancer risks are actually decreased by bio-identical hormone balance rather than the increase noted in studies using synthetic hormones and bone density and strength is dramatically improved.
