Pellets, and other BHRT, are not magic potions for weight loss. However, an optimized hormonal balance helps other efforts to lose weight as your body responds better to your diet, exercise and lifestyle. Balanced hormones increase your energy, improve the quality of your sleep, help you gain muscle mass, recover the fat burning metabolism and decrease cortisol – the hormone that causes belly fat and type 2 diabetes. Combined with a balanced diet and exercise, BHRT can therefore help you lose those pounds you have been trying to lose for so long.
