Market Synopsis of Global Bioidentical Hormones Market

Prescription hormonal pharmaceuticals are FDA-regulated and guaranteed of same strength each time, while, compounded hormonal preparations of bio-identical hormones are not because they may contain different dosages due to batch to batch variations. Being unregulated , there is no guarantee of purity and safety as compared to conventional hormone products. The claims of bioidentical hormones being safer have not been supported by studies.
