BioTE hormone replacements are nonsynthetic, plant-based hormones that match human hormones biologically, according to BioTE Medical. The hormone pellets used in BioTE pellet hormone replacement therapy contain estrogen and testosterone from natural plant sources. A doctor inserts the tiny pellets underneath the skin, and they release hormones into the bloodstream.
As of 2015, the hormone therapy is available for men and women, and a doctor typically performs the hormone pellet implantation in the office. The pellets act as healthy testicles and ovaries do in transporting hormones through the body, providing relief from menopause symptoms in women and helping to sustain proper testosterone levels in men, states BioTE Medical.
