Hormone pellet therapy has been around since the 1930s. In 2008, the FDA approved a bioidentical testosterone pellet therapy designed exclusively for men. Because of the effectiveness of this method for administering testosterone, it has become increasingly popular for both men and women. NatureMed has been offering testosterone replacement with pellets since 2010.
In both men and women, testosterone has been shown to increase energy, relieve depression, increase sense of well-being, relieve anxiety and improve memory and concentration. Testosterone pellets increase lean body mass, strength, bone density and decrease fat mass. Men and women need adequate levels of testosterone for optimal mental and physical health. Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease as well as cardiovascular disease have been associated with low T levels.
In men, testosterone pellet therapy can improve erectile dysfunction and improve confidence and drive. Low testosterone is a common issue facing aging males. It affects quality of life in many respects.
