Bioidentical hormones are plant-derived hormones that are exact copies of the natural hormones made by your body. They are tailored to meet your specific needs and are custom-made. Significant differences exist among compounding pharmacies regarding training, experience, facilities, quality and safety. An in-depth process validation program that verifies the compounded bioidentical hormone medications through a stringent end-product potency testing program is critical. Please see our extensive history of potency results below. Pharmacies that take the quality and safety of compounded medications seriously are PCAB-Accredited/ACHC-Accredited. This is not a teaching pharmacy- There are never any pharmacy students, shadowing students or interns making your medication.
How do you know it’s really in there? The FDA allows manufacturers a +/- 20% error (There are several narrow therapeutic index exceptions ). USP allows compounding pharmacies a +/- 10% error. We’ll let our potency testing speak for itself.
