Does “Bioidentical Hormones” mean Natural?

Hormones are chemicals that are released by your body’s cells, which enable messages to be delivered to different parts of the body. Bioidentical refers to the chemical structure of hormones. Hormones that your body produces and bioidentical hormones have the exact same chemical and molecular structure. Natural implies the source of the hormones.
