The History of Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy
Both men and women have been using pellet therapy since the late 1930’s. Pellets were commonly used in the United States from about 1940 through the early 80’s. There is more data that supports the use of pellets than any other hormone delivery method. Most of the research available on pellets come from England and Australia.
70+ years of research has illustrated the benefits of bioidentical hormone pellet implants in both women and men. Pellet implants deliver consistent, physiologic levels of hormones. Pellet dosing is individualized and calculated for each person for optimal results. Pellet implants bypass the liver and don’t negatively impact clotting factors, blood pressure, lipid levels, glucose, or liver function.

Pellets are far superior to bioidentical (BHRT) or Pharmaceutical hormone pills, patches and creams which deliver dosages that cannot align with your body’s daily needs. With hormone pellets you will always be in balance and feeling great because pellets are always available to deliver a perfect dose of what the body needs, every day.
Think of it like a reservoir. The hormones, which are about the size of rice and placed subcutaneously, are always available and when your body needs them it can go to the reservoir and fill up like one would fill a glass of water when thirsty. When the body is in balance there is no unnecessary dose as there would be with creams and pills which are taken in the same amount daily, regardless of your body’s actual hormone levels and needs. When you are stressed or generating the need for more hormones (as also happens with exercise) your hormone pellets are available for the body to access and find balance.
And with pellets you’ll begin to feel the positive physical and emotional effects of being in hormonal balance within two days.
Bioidentical hormone pellets have been used with great success in the U.S., Europe, and Australia since 1938. In fact, pellet implants were a very popular mode of hormone administration in the U.S. until the 1970s, when many synthetic oral and topical commercial products were developed by pharmaceutical companies. While the demand for pellets diminished in the U.S., pellet implants continued to be a very popular mode of hormone administration throughout Europe and Australia. In the last 10 years, due to advances made in processes and a better understanding of the benefits of pellet implants for hormone replacement, this mode of hormone therapy has grown in popularity in the U.S.
