Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) offers a natural way to make sure your hormone levels are balanced, improving the way your body functions. In fact, balancing your hormones offers benefits like lowering your risk of heart disease, weight loss, and relieving joint and muscle pain. Of course, along with your unique BHRT cocktail, which is tailored to your hormone needs, you may also want to support your health with natural supplements. Here’s a closer look at some supplements that work well with BHRT and may help and enhance your results.
Supplement #1 – Magnesium
Magnesium is the cofactor for the enzyme that removes toxic forms of estrogen (catechol-o-methyltransferase). Estrogen alters magnesium levels all throughout the menstrual cycle. Magnesium also makes testosterone more biologically active in the body. Raising Free and Total Testosterone Levels in men. Our product Neuromag or Magnesium chelate
Supplement #2 – Vitamin D
Vitamin D, sometimes called the sunshine vitamin, is essential for many reasons. It plays a role in keeping bones healthy, supports the immune system, and may protect against certain types of cancer. It’s especially, preventing osteoporosis, helping menopausal women with weight loss, and lowering the risk of heart disease. Our product Liposomal D or Vitamin D Synergy
Supplement #3 – Diindolylmethane (DIM)
DIM promotes beneficial estrogen metabolism in both sexes supporting the formation of healthy estrogen metabolites and enhancing the potential for greater antioxidant activity.
DIM is an essential phytochemical that’s produced when you digest cruciferous veggies like cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli. It helps modulate your immune response system and may have anti-cancer effects. If you’re taking BHRT, some research shows that DIM can have positive effects of estrogen metabolism, minimizing the potential side effects of estrogen hormone replacement. It’s also useful for treating chronic breast pain in women and an enlarged prostate in men. Our product DIM-Evail
Supplement #4 – Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 as methyl or hydroxy cobalamin is a B vitamin that’s essential to your body, yet your body can’t produce it on its own.

Supplement #7 – Calcium-D-Glucarate
Calcium D-Glucarate is the supplemental calcium salt form of D-glucaric acid, a substance produced naturally in the body and obtained through consumption of certain fruits and vegetables.
Calcium D-glucarate has been extensively studied and has been shown to inhibit beta-glucuronidase, an enzyme found in certain bacteria that reside in the gut.
This activity supports the body’s ability to detoxify estrogens, foreign molecules and fat-soluble toxins. Our products FemGuard+Balance or Calcium-D-glucarate.
