What are Bio TE Probiotics
Probiotics are live microorganisms that are either the same as, or similar to, those found in the human body. Although we tend to think of bacteria as harmful “germs”, many bacteria actually help the body function properly. Probiotics aid a variety of gastrointestinal issues including immune system support.
The word probiotic means “for life”. Probiotics or the “good bacteria” compromise approximately four pounds of our body weight. The human digestive system contains approximately 3.3 million genes for more than 1000 species of 150 times the 20-25,000 genes in the human genome. The “good bacteria cells” also out number human cells 10:1.
The primary function of the “good bacteria” are: Immune support, Digestive support, Elimination and Vitamin production.
The BioTe probiotic contains two strains of Lactobacillus and one strain of Biffidobacterium. The probiotic also delivers the “good bacteria” via an innovative capsule technology that protects the “good bacteria” from being destroyed by harsh stomach acids. This innovative capsule technology also delivers more viable/ live “good bacteria” to the intestines where they perform their magic.

What is BHRT pellet therapy?
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, is the most natural way to overcome hormone deficiencies and hormone imbalances at any age. Bio-identical hormones have many benefits over conjugated hormones. These hormones are delivered to patients in the form of pellets. These pellets are placed just under the skin in an outpatient procedure.
What are the benefits of BHRT pellets?
There are many benefits to BHRT pellets over traditional pellets. The first is that the hormones within BHRT pellets are bio-identical; meaning that they are structurally the same as naturally occurring human hormones. The second is that these hormones are found in nature and are plant-derived. This implies that the hormones used in BHRT pellet therapy for women are more natural and may have fewer negative interactions within the body. Another benefit of pellet therapy is that the pellets remain within the body and consistently provide the dosing that the body requires. This contrasts with other hormone replacement therapy administrations in which the hormone is provided in spurts, such as pills and creams, resulting in a rollercoaster effect of relief to discomfort for the patient.
What are pellets?
Pellets contain bio-identical hormones custom compounded in a pharmacy within the United States. The quality of the hormones used for BioTE Medical pellets is extremely high and consistently tested in every batch.
What are the drawbacks of pellet therapy?
The only drawback of pellet therapy is that there may be an upfront cost associated with the treatment. This is because many insurance carriers do not cover BHRT pellet therapy. It is possible that insurance carriers do not provide coverage for BHRT because it is a natural treatment which cannot be patented and therefore cannot be approved by the FDA.
What are the conditions that may be able to be lessened in women through pellet therapy? There are many conditions that may be able to be improved in women through pellet therapy. Studies have shown, improvements in menopause, depression, anxiety, low sex drive, osteoporosis, heart disease, PMS and many other conditions.

Bio-identicals are derived from plants while conjugated hormones are derived from animals. Hormone replacement therapy is the purpose of the bio-identical hormones. People who lack hormones at certain consistent levels or who have too much of a certain hormone may benefit from BHRT.
