Confusion exists regarding the use of the term “natural” versus “bio-identical” hormones, particularly as it applies to the hormones estradiol and progesterone which must be molecule for molecule absolutely “identical” to hormones produced by the human body to have the desired effects. These bio-identical hormones are made from plant sources.

DHEA is a naturally produced pro-hormone. DHEA occurs in the body as a result of a cascading molecular synthesis from the very large complex molecule to progressively smaller more specialized ones. Acetate in the body is converted into cholesterol when certain carbon chains are removed to yield pregnenolone, known as the “grandmother of all hormones.”
