Natural Progesterone Cycles
The day your menstrual cycle begins is day one of your menstrual month (not related to the calendar). From day 1 to about day 14, the estrogens should be the dominant female hormone. Then, in response to ovulation, estrogen levels should drop sharply and be replaced by progesterone (days 14-28). During this latter half of your menstrual cycle, the single master hormone progesterone should be the dominant hormone.
When your body fails to make a sufficiency of progesterone between ovulation & menstruation (days 14-28) and during menopause, a petrochemical-free transdermal natural progesterone cream will address this progesterone deficiency, ergo, the underlying cause of these symptoms.
Natural Progesterone Production
The female body manufactures progesterone in the ovaries prior to menopause and by the adrenal glands & fat cells after menopause.
Progesterone is the precursor for natural estrogen, cortisone & testosterone, source of libido in men & women.
Progesterone is the single most important hormone in the female body and is referred to as the “Master Hormone” in women. It is vitally important for the health of most cells and all organs.
The human brain contains many progesterone receptors, although the function of this primary hormone in brain function has not clearly been established.
The resultant Benefits of correcting a progesterone deficiency 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
- 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
Because the female body uses natural progesterone to make optimal levels of natural estrogen, a properly formulated biologically identical progesterone cream is the natural, safe choice for menstruating women and for post-menopausal women seeking to establish the correct balance of their two primary female hormones. This optimal balance of Progesterone and Estrogens will protect them from the effects of the condition knwon as “Estrogen Dominance”.
Indeed, topical natural progesterone will correct deficient progesterone levels and balance the unwanted effects of too much estrogen.
