BHRT - Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Adequate hormone levels are essential for proper pain control, which are responsible for the functionality of opioid activity. Such hormone is responsible for opioid binding, maintenance of the blood-brain barrier transport, and activation of dopamine and norepinephrine activity. Therefore, inadequate hormone levels in the central nervous system are reflected through poor pain control.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a safe, natural solution for hormonal imbalances.
Individuals who suffer from chronic pain, their body becomes stressed through injury, which releases hormones throughout the body. When the response persists for an extended period of time, the organs become depleted of these hormones. Pain decreases the amount of testosterone in the body, which is essential for tissue and bone growth and most importantly, pain control. Testosterone depletion can occur through two different mechanisms: pituitary insufficiency caused by severe pain, which depletes the secretion of testosterone from the adrenal and gonads and the second cause being opioid administration. Opioids suppress the GnRH in the hypothalamus.

L-Nutra’s first fasting mimicking diet is a 5-day meal program to be repeated every 1 to 6 months based on an recommendation of a authorized healthcare professional.
ProLon® meal program was created to boost the body’s natural ability to regenerate and rejuvenate. It has been proved to reduce abdominal fat and help maintain appropriate blood glucose levels, C-reactive protein (CRP), and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1).
Recently, L-Nutra, Inc has become the first company to introduce a product patented by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for optimizing human healthspan, which translates into length of time that a person is healthy. This patent for the Fasting Mimicking Diet® (FMD®), was discovered and clinically tested by the laboratory of Valter Longo and Keck Hospital at the University of Southern California (USC). It is proven to reduce markers for age-related disease as well as enhance tissue regeneration.
