Women who replace the sex hormones of their youth will notice improved energy, with decreased risks of dementia, osteoporosis and other diseases associated with aging, not to mention relieving most of the symptoms of peri-menopause and menopause.

Hormone replacement isn’t just for women. Men over the age of 40 will begin to notice that they gain weight easily and that they experience a reduction in their strength, libido and vitality as a result of their decreasing testosterone level.
