Hormone replacement therapy is only one of the necessary keys to unlocking a better version of yourself. Testosterone and/or estrogen replacement alone are not enough. There are important vitamins, minerals, and compounds which are deficient in most foods and drug store supplements.
Unfortunately, many over-the-counter supplements are poorly made.
BioTE supplements (nutraceuticals) are made by the same lab (Thorne) that supplies the Mayo Clinic. Using rigorous standards and backed by scientific research, you can rest assured that you’re receiving the highest grade supplements available.
BioTE supplements not only help with hormone optimization, they may also help with:
- Improved sleep
- Thyroid optimization
- Prostate and breast health
- Younger skin
- Fuller hair
- Inflammation and chronic pain
Before we go further, let’s set some expectations. BioTE supplements alone will NOT transform your life. Nothing can substitute for healthy eating, exercise, and adequate sleep. Regular evaluations with a trusted physician are necessary as well.
I’m also not interested in making false claims about BioTE supplements in hopes I’ll talk you into buying them. But I can’t ignore the fact that 86% of Americans take at least one nutritional supplement or vitamin on a daily basis.
If you’re going to buy this stuff, I’d rather you be well informed and purchase high-quality BioTE supplements.
Let’s review in more detail the benefits of BioTE® supplements.
Core BioTE® Supplements
DIM SGS+ BioTE Supplement
Ever wonder why broccoli and cauliflower are healthy? It’s because they contain DIM. DIM is an anti-inflammatory compound with anti-cancer properties in numerous animal and cell studies that may be beneficial for breast, uterine, cervical and prostate health. DIM SGS+ BioTE supplement includes pomegranate extract, a well known superfood.
DIM also promotes a healthy estrogen metabolism in both women and men. This frees testosterone from binding agents in your blood, which helps balance your hormones.
For more detail on the power of DIM SGS+ BioTE® supplement, check out our previous blog post.
ADK 10 BioTE supplement
In one study, 80% of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 had a vitamin D deficiency. If you already take vitamin D supplements, unfortunately most store-brands are of poor quality and lack the necessary supporting vitamins A and K. Although these vitamins are important for bone health, they are also necessary for eye, skin, immune and heart health. Vitamin D is also a testosterone booster, which ensures your hormones are optimized.
Iodine+ BioTE supplement
Thyroid optimization is complementary to hormone optimization and necessary for making you feel better. Unfortunately, iodine is no longer in the foods we consume. Most adults have an iodine deficiency. This leads to poor thyroid function. Iodine+ brings in zinc and selenium (testosterone boosters) to aid in the production of the active thyroid hormone T3. Iodine+ may also help to maintain breast and prostate health.
(NOTE: when first starting Iodine+ you may feel flu-like symptoms as you detoxify your body. Start with 1 capsule 2-3 times a week and slowly increase to once a day).
Methyl Factors+ BioTE supplement
Methylation is a fancy name for a scientific process that is vital for most of our organs. 40% of the U.S. population has a genetic mutation that prevents proper methylation. Supplementation with Methyl Factors+, a combination of B-complex vitamins, can compensate for this deficiency.
One key function of Methyl Factors+ is decreasing homocysteine levels to maintain cardiovascular health and lower your risk of heart disease. Known as the “happy vitamin”, Methyl Factors+ may help with “brain fog” and depression.
Supplemental BioTE supplement
We believe in personalized medicine at Pazona MD. You may have some nagging issues or serious medical conditions that are not being adequately addressed. If you find yourself feeling hopeless, a trial of the correct BioTE supplement might be the answer that you’ve been looking for.
Trouble falling asleep or getting restful sleep?
Deep Sleep – Sleep Complex BioTE supplement
Sleep disorders are linked to heart disease, obesity and low testosterone. Traditional sleep aids are often ineffective or even worse dangerous. Deep Sleep BioTE supplement is a blend of natural extracts that are safe and proven to restore melatonin levels and improve sleep patterns.
Unfortunately, most available melatonin supplements contain TOO MUCH melatonin, which can cause permanent sleep disorders. Deep Sleep contains the right amount of melatonin (15x lower dose than most supplements) without addictive properties or “groggy” feelings when you wake up.
IBS, acid reflux or stomach problems?
Multi-Strain Probiotics 20B BioTE supplement
There are 100 trillion bacteria in your intestinal tract. Having the correct balance of bacteria is essential to a healthy lifestyle. Medical conditions or poor dietary habits can lead to an imbalance of gut bacteria. Imbalances cause stomach issues, weight gain and even depression (Did you know that 95% of the “happy hormone” serotonin is made in the gut?).
Multi-Strain Probiotic 20B BioTE supplement contains four different types of over 20 billion bacteria necessary for normal gut function. Probiotics may relieve heartburn, diarrhea and other GI issues while maintaining a healthy immune system.
History of vascular disease or erectile dysfunction?
Arterosil HP BioTE supplement
Atherosclerosis is the #1 killer of worldwide of men and women. Not only does it lead to heart attacks and strokes but it is also the #1 cause of erectile dysfunction. Conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, and obesity, cause inflammation of the vascular system, leading to plaque build-up and blockages.
Arterosil HP BioTE supplement may help to maintain the integrity of our body’s vascular system. The goal is to repair damage of the blood vessel lining. Arterosil HP may help promote a healthy heart and support normal erectile function in men. If you are over the age of 45, or are at risk for a heart attack or stroke, then Arterosil HP may be right for you.
Do you suffer from arthritis? Chronic pain? Nagging musculoskeletal injuries or chronic wounds that won’t heal?
BPC-157 BioTE supplement
Peptide therapy is the “next big thing” in regenerative medicine. Peptides are chains of amino acids, the building blocks of protein. These naturally occurring, safe compounds are being used to promote healthy aging by repairing damaged tissues.
The BioTE supplement BPC-157 (body protection compound) is a proprietary combination of 15 amino acids that repairs muscles, tendons and soft tissues. If you are struggling with tendonitis, musculoskeletal pains or any chronic injury, then BPC-157 could be the answer you’ve been looking for. BPC-157 may also improve GI health when other options fail.
Have you heard the health benefits of turmeric? This is turmeric on steroids!
Curcumin-SF BioTE supplement
Tumeric has been used for thousands of years for its healing properties. Imagine all of the potential health benefits of turmeric packed into a potent capsule.
Curcumin-SF BioTE supplement contains an ultra-concentrated formulation of the healthy chemicals in turmeric. You’d have to eat the entire spice bottle to receive the same health benefits of two Curcumin-SF capsules.
Curcumin-SF is safe and worth a try if you have any joint or muscle pains or need an immune booster. As a side benefit, Curcumin-SF may also help optimize estrogen metabolism in men and women, so you receive the most out of your hormone replacement therapy.
Struggling with mental health?
Serene BioTE supplement
Did you know that most studies on antidepressants have shown that they don’t work any better than psychotherapy alone? Plus, they can have bothersome side effects. Anti-anxiety medications (benzodiazepines) are dangerous. Have you considered a more natural solution?
Serene BioTE supplement is derived from magnolia tree bark, which has been used in eastern medicine for centuries. The active ingredient DHH-B may provide on-demand mood support to relieve stress. With antioxidant properties as well, Serene may promote a healthy body as well with no bothersome side effects.
(Disclaimer: if you are having suicidal thoughts or suffering from severe depression or anxiety, go to the ER immediately or contact a mental health professional).
Do you have a goal of living until 100 years old?
Senolytic Complex + NMN Complex BioTE supplement
Hormone optimization is a critical component to slowing down the aging process. We age because our hormone levels decline, not vice versa. In order to maximize the anti-aging effects, it is critical to support our cells.
As we age, our bodies accumulate “dying cells” with damaged DNA. These cells lead to poor aging, inflammation and low energy. Senolytic Complex is a powerful blend of anti-oxidants (including resveratrol the healthy compound found in red wine) that eliminates “dying cells” so you may age more gracefully and feel better.
NAD+ is a critical compound that very few people have heard of but yet plays a vital role in how our body functions. As we age, NAD+ decline along with our cognitive function and energy levels. NMN Complex replaces NAD+ with additional anti-oxidants. With a sharper mind and healthier cells, you’ll be on the road to a better version of yourself.
Combining Senolytic Complex + NMN Complex multiplies the benefits of these natural compounds.
