Progesterone – What is it and Why is it Low?
What is Progesterone?
Progesterone is a hormone found in both men and women that is generally associated with women’s health. It plays an important role in influencing menstrual cycles, pregnancy, and menopause.
Genetic makeup, environmental influences, and other factors can negatively impact progesterone levels, which may lead to other imbalances in the body.
According to Dan Purser, MD and author of Progesterone: the Ultimate Woman’s Feel-Good Hormone, some of the common negative effects of PMS and menopause relate to inadequate levels of progesterone.
Raising Progesterone levels can support and help:
- Monthly headaches associated with the menstrual cycle
- Hot flashes
- Even moods
- Night sweats
- Increased wrinkles
- Weight gain and muscle loss
- Memory issues
- Blood pressure
- Sleep patterns
- Low sex drive
Progessence™ Plus serum, intended only for woman.
Expertly formulated by D. Gary Young and Dr. Dan Purser, Progessence Plus takes pure, USP-grade, super-micronized progesterone from wild yams and combines it with vitamin E and an essential oil serum to easily penetrate the skin for improved delivery.
Containing frankincense, bergamot, cedarwood and peppermint essential oils to aid in absorption, this product does not require the cycling of application sites as do most other progesterone products.
Are natural hormones safe to take?
Dr. Purser: “Yes, they are very safe to take. Studies have shown that synthetic hormones may have health risks that may exceed the benefits of HRT. A woman’s body has trouble assimilating synthetic hormones effectively and the side effects that result are often much worse than the original problems being treated.”
