Bioidentical hormones are compounded in a specialty pharmacy known as a compound pharmacy. They come from natural sources such as soy or yams so they are plant derived. They are molecularly identical to the hormones that we already have in our bodies. What is unique about bioidentical hormones is that the body sees it as belonging to itself but not as a foreign substance. Synthetic hormones are molecularly altered. They are not chemically identical to those in our bodies.
They do not often come from natural resources which mean they are not natural for our body. By molecularly altering it, they create some problem that exists from synthetic hormones.
