A free flowing, pre-sweetened powder, easily weighed and convenient to work with. The ingredients are released slowly and uniformly, producing a pleasant taste. Troche Base is a polyethylene glycol base sweetened with Stevia 90% that was developed to be easy to work with, easily administered, and widely compatible. Both water soluble liquid and powder flavours can be readily incorporated into the base.
Troches have regained tremendous popularity for the absorption of medications, especially hormones. They are effective because the lining of the mouth is thin and rich in blood supply. Troches are small lozenges that dissolve between the cheek and gum or even in the vagina. A well made “Base A” troche provides the best absorption; it dissolves slowly over a period of about 20 to 40 minutes. As it dissolves, the hormones are gradually absorbed into the blood stream, resulting in physiologically natural hormone blood levels.
Because these are bioidentical to the hormones your body has produced, they are efficiently recognized, utilized, metabolized and excreted by the body. Since your own hormones only last about 10 to 14 hours, your natural hormone replacement should be dosed twice a day to give adequate and sustained blood levels. A word of caution – if you are going to use the troches in the vagina – be certain that they are not flavored with mint! Mint causes a burning sensation in the vagina that you will want to avoid!
