BHRT treatment

Is BHRT Beneficial for Heart Health?

BHRT, Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, is used to treat hormonal imbalances in the body. However, BHRT can indirectly assist with heart health by treating hormonal imbalances. So while it may not be a first thought, BHRT can be an effective treatment for improving heart health in certain people. So let’s explore how a BHRT treatment could be effective in certain patients’ heart care.

Negative Cardiac Effects of Hormonal Imbalances

Hormones are kept within a certain range in the body to promote certain functions and ensure health. However, an imbalance is created when hormones consistently move out of that range. This imbalance often creates issues for the body and neglects the hormone’s primary function. One of the areas affected in the body is the heart.

Declining levels of estrogen in women can lead to cholesterol and fat build-up in the arteries of the heart1. This can contribute to heart attacks and strokes1. Reduced and declining testosterone levels in men can also negatively affect the heart2. Research suggests that lower testosterone levels actually increase the risk of developing coronary heart disease2.

Benefits of BHRT For the Heart

BHRT does not directly affect the heart but rather the hormones that can affect the heart. An imbalance of testosterone2 and estrogen1 has been linked to issues like clogged arteries and coronary heart disease. So while BHRT may not seem beneficial to heart health at first glance, a deeper look shows BHRT as a reliable hormonal treatment option for heart condition prevention.

BHRT For the Heart

BHRT has been shown to be a safe and effective treatment for low testosterone and estrogen. Alleviating these hormonal imbalances is key to preventing heart conditions caused by said imbalances. While HRT is commonly used to assist in hormonal imbalances, it is made traditionally from pregnant horse urine and is not bioidentical to the hormones naturally occurring in the body. BHRT is natural and is identical in makeup to the hormones a body already produces.
