Balances estrogen dominance

Progesterone is one of two key hormones, the other one is estrogen, made by the ovaries of menstruating women. Progesterone is a safe, natural alternative to HRT (hormone replacement therapy) because it”s produced by a woman”s body during the second half of each monthly cycle, from ovulation until menses, and is the dominant hormone during this phase. Progesterone hormone made at ovulation by the corpus luteum of the ovary, and in smaller amounts by the adrenal glands. Progesterone is manufactured in the body from the steroid hormone pregnenolone. It plays a very important role in fertility and reproduction, promoting successful conception and pregnancy.Role of Progesterone Cream Progesterone Cream plays a key role in women’s menopausal health. Progesterone is needed in hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for menopausal women for many reasons. In a normally cycling female, the corpus luteum produces 20 to 30 mg of Progesterone daily during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle. Progesterone Cream or progesterone-like substances known as progestogens or progestin’s are also ingested by women in birth control pills, or just sometimes to induce a menstrual period or regulate abnormal bleeding problems if menses are skipping or bleeding is irregular or prolonged. One of its most important roles is to balance the effects of estrogen. Unrestricted estrogen creates a strong risk for breast cancer and reproductive cancers.At menopause estrogen levels drop only 40-60% and it is just enough to stop the menstrual cycle. But in some women Progesterone levels may drop to near zero. Because Progesterone cream is the precursor to so many other steroid hormones, its use can greatly enhance overall hormone balance after menopause. Progesterone Cream also stimulates bone-building and thus helps protect against osteoporosis.What is Progesterone Cream made from? Progesterone Cream used for hormone replacement is manufactured in laboratory from plant fats and oils, usually a substance called diosgenin which is extracted from a very specific type of wild yam that grows in Mexico or from soybeans. In the laboratory diosgenin is chemically synthesized into real human Progesterone. The other human steroid hormones, including testosterone, estrogen, Progesterone and the cortisones are also nearly always synthesized from diosgenin.Benefits of Progesterone Cream: Balances estrogen dominance Helps use fat for energy and keep it off hips Natural antidepressant Facilitates thyroid hormone action Normalizes blood clotting Increases libido Promotes blood sugar levels Restores proper cell oxygen levels Prevents endometrial cancer Helps to prevent breast cancer Increases bone building Is a natural diuretic (water pill) Eliminates hot flashes Recommended Usage:Natural Progesterone Cream is easily absorbed through the skin due to its fat-soluble attribute.From subcutaneous fat, progesterone is absorbed into capillary blood.
