Natural Progesterone

Natural Progesterone Cream for Menopause Symptoms

Menopause, also referred to as the "Change of Life" is the point at which woman stop ovulating and menstruation ceases. This indicates the end of fertility. Ovulating stops, the hormones progesterone and estrogen are no longer produced by the ovaries. Estrogen is commonly thought of as a sex hormone strictly tied to reproduction. However, it also acts on many different organs in the body. Cells in the vagina, breasts, bladder, skin, arteries, bones, heart, brain, and liver all contain estrogen receptors. They require this hormone to stimulate these receptors for normal cell function. Progesterone is needed to keep the skin smooth and moist, our hormones operating properly, and the arteries unclogged. Progesterone is also necessary for proper bone formation.

The menopausal period is different for each individual woman. Some women start earlier and some later but the average age at menopause is approximately fifty years of age. This transition usually lasts up to five years. When a woman has a hysterectomy but keeps at least one of her ovaries, she will stop menstruating after surgery, but she will still go through menopause.

Many woman experience short-term or acute symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, mood swings, anxiety, headaches, dizziness, depression, bladder problems, poor libido, vaginal dryness and itching, burning and discomfort during sexual intercourse, breast tenderness, dryness and aging of the skin, shortness of breath, insomnia, and heart. These symptoms are all due to estrogen dominance and progesterone deficiency.

Natural Progesterone Plus cream plays an important role in restoring balance to the body. One of the safest hormonal supplements, progesterone is essential in regulating estrogen, testosterone, aldosterone and cortisone. This simply means that progesterone is a precursor hormone that can be converted by the body, as required into the other essential steroid hormones. If the body is deprived of its required amount of progesterone, the production of the other related hormones can be severely imbalanced. Taking progesterone will not create an excess of these other hormones, but rather act as a normalizer by helping to decrease any excess or correct any deficiency.

Natural Progesterone cream is easily and quickly absorbed into the body so you can apply it almost anywhere with success.

We recommend that you rotate the areas you apply it, to avoid saturating any one area. It is best absorbed where the skin is relatively thin and well supplied with capillary blood flow, such as the face, neck, upper chest, breasts, inner arms and inner thighs and wrists.

Apply and massage into your skin until it is noticeably absorbed. Natural progesterone cream should not be applied over top of other body creams or perfumes as this may interfere with proper absorption.
