Just because you are getting older doesn’t mean that you have to feel older.
As you age, you may begin to notice a loss of energy and a decrease in sex drive, that could be due to low levels of hormones.
Luckily there is a solution; hormone pellet therapy.
What are hormone pellets?
Hormone pellets are regulators injected just under the skin. These regulators use something called “bio-identical hormones.” That means they use the same chemical structure as those naturally produced in the body.
These pellets are about the size of a grain of rice, derived from natural resources like yams and roots.
What is hormone pellet therapy?
With hormone pellet therapy, the pellet is inserted during a simple in-office procedure where the hormones are inserted under the skin into the hip or buttock region. Although it is a relatively painless procedure, a local anesthetic is available, and most compare it to receiving a shot or injection.
The body absorbs pellets at a controlled rate which allows them to remain active in the body for three to four months. Since they are absorbed directly into the bloodstream and are always readily available for the body to use, the hormone levels remain consistent for the entirety of the insertion.
Benefits of pellet therapy
Both men and women experience a loss in hormone levels and therefore can benefit from pellet therapy. Pellet therapy re-establishes hormones that have been lost in your body and reduce the negative symptoms of hormone imbalances.
Benefits of pellet therapy include improvements in:
- Sex Drive
- Muscle mass
- Bone density
- Cognitive performance
- Heart health
- Energy levels
- Weight loss
While both genders experience these benefits, we understand that they have different types and levels of hormones and therefore have various symptoms to address.
Pellet therapy for men
Testosterone levels in men peak about the age of twenty. When you enter the third decade of life, you may begin to notice the inevitable changes in your body during the aging process.
20-40% of older men have a medical condition called “hypogonadism”and need testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). Men over the age of 30 may start to notice some of the symptoms of low testosterone, but hormone replacement is often not needed until they are over the age of 40.
Low testosterone can cause a host of symptoms such as:
- Reduced muscle mass
- Weight management issues
- Sleep deprivation
- Loss of focus
- Erectile dysfunction
- Loss of motivation
- Increased body fat
- Low libido
- Decreased bone density
In some cases, you may feel less active, less attractive, and less interested in intimacy with your partner. Left unaddressed, symptoms can increase throughout your forties and fifties, stealing your self-confidence and sense of achievement in your personal and professional life.

Pellet therapy for women
Most women think that hormone replacement therapy is only needed once they have reached menopause. In reality, symptoms can begin much sooner. Women enter a stage called pre-menopause or perimenopause which can start 5-10 years before periods cease.
Symptoms persist and can worsen throughout perimenopause and menopause.
Women usually experience menopause between the ages of 45 and 55. While going through menopause, many women’s hormone levels drop. This leaves them with many adverse side effects such as:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Memory loss
- Vaginal dryness
- Low libido
- Aches and pain
- Moodiness and depression
Pellet therapy helps to alleviate these symptoms and leave you feeling revitalized.
Postmenopausal women receive (what is TRT) TRT to treat inhibited sexual desire, or otherwise known as hypoactive sexual desire disorder. This treatment can help improve their sexual desire, orgasm frequency, and satisfaction.

Advantages to pellet therapy over other treatments
Pellets have the benefit of slowly and regularly releasing hormones until they dissipate. Unlike pills, creams, or patches, this naturally creates a larger spike in the hormone.
By spreading out the application of the hormone, pellet therapy helps regulate the amount you need when you need it. Other treatments often produce high levels of hormones at once and then can drop off suddenly. This hormonal inconsistency can leave the user with extreme fluctuations causing mood swings and other unpleasant side effects.
Some side effects of too much testosterone include:
- Sleep apnea
- Low sperm count
- Enlarged breasts
- Testicle shrinkage
- Increased RBC
You do not have to worry about experiencing too much testosterone with pellet therapy because they slowly release the hormones over time.
