What is Progesterone and how can it help me?

Women in menopause lose progesterone, which protects against uterine cancer, breast cancer, osteoporosis and heart disease. Progesterone stands for pro-gestational or the hormone of pregnancy. Progesterone is another female hormone of equal importance as is estrogen for the aging woman, although it is commonly overlooked. Progesterone is a hormone produced by the ovaries and is used in nature to balance estrogen. it too can safely and effectively relieve menopausal symptoms, protect agaist cancer, prevent osteoporosis, and improve overall well-being. Recent studies have demonstrated the benefits of progesterone in protecting against breast cancer.

Synthetic progestins (Provera) cause significant problems and side effects as do the synthetic estrogens and do not provide the benefits produced by natural progesterone.

Natural progesterone enhances the action of estrogen as the two hormones were meant to work together to maintain normal hormonal balance. The lack of progesterone causes heart disease, decrease in libido, and a significantly dimished quality of life.

The combination of natural progesterone and estrogen can prevent this downward spiral by keeping women vital, strong and healthy.

Natural progesterone is very beneficial treatment for the premenstual syndrome (PMS), which includes moodiness, irritability, bloating, and headaches. Natural progesterone also results in a greater reduction of cholesterol levels and an increase of HDL or the good cholesterol. In addition, the natural progesterone has been shown to halt progression of osteoporosis. Progesterone stimulates osteoblasts, which are the cells that grow new bone.

Progesterone hormone therapy can be delivered in the following ways:

  • Radip Dissolve Trouches
