What are bio-identical hormones?
Bio-identical hormones, by definition, are identical to the hormones produced by your body. Starting with soy or wild yam, organic chemists produce hormones with the same molecular structures as those produced by the human body. Unlike other “natural” hormones that are from animal origin the human body sees bio-identical hormones as its own.

Are generic medicines as good as the brand?
In a word, “yes”! The Texas State Board of Pharmacy rules require that generic medications substituted for the brand must be listed as equivalent in the Federal Government’s FDA “Orange Book”. Not only must the generic product contain the same quantity of medication, it must also achieve the same blood levels and produce the same results as the brand.
