At Pellecome in Randolph, NJ, we’ve devoted years of research to developing a high-quality hormone replacement therapy that’s also reliable and easy to administer. These efforts have led to BioTE pellets, a path to increased wellness for both men and women experiencing substantial hormone fluctuations.
What Are BioTE Pellets?
The quality of BioTE pellets is extremely high thanks to consistent batch testing. Within seven to 10 days of treatment, many people report a great difference in how they feel: more energy, stronger mental clarity, and renewed interest in intimacy are just some of the effects most rapidly delivered. In other words, patients soon feel more like themselves. Traditional hormone therapy, on the other hand, can take up to six months to show full results.
Do Pellets Help with Weight Loss?
Because the pellets are natural, and not made with synthetic ingredients, they’re highly effective in restoring balance to the body. They have also shown to help with weight loss by providing the following benefits:
- Increased stamina
- Stronger muscle mass
- Effective depression management
- Regulated sleep cycles
These effects give way to more energy to help you lead an active lifestyle. In our younger years, when hormones are naturally balanced, it’s easy to take a walk, go for a bike ride, or jog. Our hormones support the body functions required to enjoy these vibrant activities; more specifically, men produce higher quantities of testosterone and women produce more estrogen that help:
- Build and maintain lean muscle mass
- Evenly distribute fat
- Keep bones strong
- Safeguard against illness and disease
- Promote high energy levels
- Reduce fat storage
- Regulate mood
A Gradual Decline
Over time, however, both men and women produce less of the hormones they need for optimal functioning. This is a natural part of the aging process. The problem is that without these hormones, our bodies become more vulnerable to concerns like weight gain, which can lead to additional problems like diabetes, heart disease, and even depression.
Men and women need the correct balance of testosterone and estrogen to stay fit, and that’s exactly what BioTE pellets provide: restored balance to provide you with the energy and strength required to stay active. And a body in motion stays in motion, helping you lose weight. Pellets can also improve mental acuity so you stay sharp and focused during your workouts. The end result? Weight loss that helps you look and feel younger.
How Long Before You Lose Weight?
This depends on several factors, including how quickly your body responds to treatment. Keep in mind hormone balance alone won’t be enough for you to shed unwanted pounds. You’ll need to pair treatment with a healthful diet and exercise. The difference is that once you feel stronger and more energetic, you’ll have the motivation needed to embark on a new lifestyle.
How They Work
In most cases, women need pellets placed every three to five months; men usually need treatment every four to six months. You’ll know it’s time for another round of treatment when your symptoms start to return. After the first few cycles of hormones, you’ll likely know when to schedule an appointment for re-pelleting based on the differences in how you feel. That’s right – the change is significant.
Determining If Treatment Is Right for You
Your provider will run tests to not only determine if BioTE pellets are right for you but to also identify the levels at which treatment needs to be administered. You may be reassessed after six weeks or so to ensure the dosage is correct. Your provider will use this time to additionally evaluate how you feel. The decision to pursue hormone replacement therapy is yours to make, but your provider will offer guidance after reviewing your medical history and symptoms.
While treatment can reduce concerns like fatigue, depression, and sexual dysfunction, it can also improve your overall health. The body relies on hormones to protect against a variety of diseases; estrogen, for instance, keeps arteries open and free of cholesterol to promote heart health. As this hormone declines, it puts women at greater risk for serious conditions like a heart attack. Having said that, additional benefits of BioTE pellets include:
- Lower risks of osteoporosis
- Improved urinary health
- Enhanced mood to reduce symptoms of depression
- Reduced risk of stroke
- Better weight management to reduce the risk of cancer, diabetes, and high blood pressure
- Improved sexual health
Who Are They Right for?
Pellets can restore your quality of life in many ways and have been used medically since 1939. At that time, doctors administered them for women who underwent extreme hysterectomies. This makes pellets the longest and most widely studied hormone replacement therapy to date. Both men and women use this treatment to feel better, function better, and protect themselves from disease.
Your provider will ultimately decide if treatment is right for you, but certain conditions will likely preclude you from taking pellets. These include heart or liver disease, blood clots, and certain types of cancer. We recommend that you schedule a consultation with your provider to learn more.
A Treatment of Many Benefits
The potential to lose weight is just one benefit you’ll enjoy with BioTE pellets. As your body returns to a state of balance, you’ll sleep better, have a stronger memory, and enjoy more manageable moods. And because the pellets are individually compounded, you can be sure of their quality as well as their ability to meet your personal needs.
