I have formulated my Young Hormones® line of skin creams and vaginal suppositories to include what I believe to be the finest bioidentical hormones available. These added hormones - Progesterone, Estradiol, Estriol and DHEA - are all USP Grade.* They are made bioidentical to human hormones from non-GMO, organic sources, then blended into a botanical cream or suppository which are also made from all-natural ingredients.
For our pump products, the result is an elegant, non-sticky, non-oily cream product in a stylish airless pump bottle that can deliver just the right amount of topically-applied cream each and every time.
Our suppositories are also completely amazing, with bioidentical hormones in organic triglycerides of saturated fatty acids and nothing else! No unwanted ingredients in our products!
Research has shown topical application is the safest and best way to supplement your Progesterone and Estrogen hormones! It's the best method for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) before, during, and after menopause.
For our cream-based Young Hormones, we provide a generous quantity of each in a beautiful bottle with a metered pump to deliver just the right amount each time. Each bottle contains 50 grams of product, which will typically last 2 to 4 months! Also, remember that topically-applied hormones only need to be about 1/4 the strength of ingested (swallowed) hormones for the same benefit because our products are applied to the skin, which has been proven to be the safest method of hormone supplementation since they are absorbed into the tissues that need the hormones without having to be metabolized through the liver and digestive tract.
For our Happy Hoo Hoo suppositories, we provide 16 to a pack! That's enough for a whole month of initial treatment, and will last up to two or three months thereafter!
I believe the quality of the ingredients is crucially important. And our customers agree!

*USP defined: The United States Pharmacopeial Convention, Incorporated, (USP) is a scientific nonprofit organization that sets standards for the identity, strength, quality, and purity of medicines, food ingredients, and dietary supplements. USP Grade means that a product meets all of the requirements as contained in the USP monograph for that product and is manufactured in a CGMP compliant facility. CGMP refers to the Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations enforced by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). CGMPs provide for systems that assure proper design, monitoring, and control of manufacturing processes and facilities. If there is no USP monograph, a material cannot be labeled as USP Grade.
