They’re not found in this form in nature but made, or synthesized, and from a plant chemical extracted from yams and soy. Including bioidentical estrogens are 17 beta-estradiol, estrone, and estriol. (Estradiol is the form of estrogen that decreases at menopause.) Bioidentical progesterone is progesterone.
