    Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), also known as bioidentical hormone therapy or natural hormone therapy

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bioidentical_hormone_replacement_therapy

    Scanning through the information found in wiki-pedia, I would say there's no benefit and greater risk of high blood pressure and cancer by taking it.

    "A 2010 article published in The Medical Letter on Drugs and Therapeutics concluded "There is no acceptable evidence that 'bioidentical' hormones are safe or effective. Patients should be discouraged from taking them."

    Click the above link, read the info and you decide. Personally I'd stay away from the stuff.
