Natural progesterone is made by the ovaries prior to menopause and by the adrenal glands and fat cells after menopause and is a primary precursor for healthy testosterone and estrogen levels. Progesterone is the single most important hormone in the female body.
It is important, however, to distinguish natural progesterone from synthetic progesterone, as synthetic progesterone (progestin) comes with many side-effects. A common grammatical mistake made by many is to use the term “progesterone” and not clearly identify whether the reference is to the natural or the synthetic.
When the female body fails to produce enough progesterone between ovulation and menstruation and during menopause (why would I even have a hormone imbalance in the first place?), a bioidentical, topical progesterone cream addresses the underlying cause of most symptoms.
The female body uses progesterone to make natural estrogens & natural testosterone (source of libido). Therefore, bioidentical progesterone cream is the safest choice for menstruating women and post-menopausal women seeking to establish the correct balance of their two primary female hormones (why a cream?).
Optimal Progesterone Levels
This balance of Natural Progesterone and Natural Estrogens will protect women from the effects of the condition knwon as “Estrogen Dominance“.
The resultant Benefits of bioidentical progesterone include:
- Helps Use Fat for Energy
- Facilitates Thyroid Hormone Action
- Natural Anti-depressant
- Natural Diuretic
- Normalizes Blood Sugar Levels
- Restores Proper Cell Oxygen Levels
- Restores Libido by Increasing Testosterone
- Normalizes Menstrual Cycles
- Normalizes Zinc & Copper Levels
- Normalizes Blood Clotting
- Helps Normalize Breast Epithelial cells
- Strengthens Endometrium
- Helps Normalize Ovarian Function
- Precursor for Cortisone Production
- Precursor for Estrogen Production
- Precursor for Testosterone Production
As you can see, bioidentical, natural progesterone balances the effects of too much estrogen.
Of the varied methods of normalizing progesterone levels, a properly formulated cream, one free of petro-chemicals, free of Chinese progesterone and free of Genetically Modified ingredients (GMO-free) has proven to be the safest and most effect choice for informed women.
