How Natural Progesterone Can Re-Balance Hormones

Jun 6, 2008
Once a girl reaches puberty her body produces progesterone from the ovaries. Following menopause progesterone will continue to be made by the adrenal glands but in a far reduced amount.

Natural progesterone is a bio-identical hormone produced from yams and soya beans. Bio-identical means that the plant derived progesterone is the same as that produced by the ovaries. It is because it is bio-identical that the human body cannot tell the difference and will use it exactly as it would if it had produced it itself.

For many years women have been using bio-identical natural progesterone as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy. As it is a natural product and identical to the body's own progesterone there are rarely any side effects experienced with using natural progesterone.

The progesterone used in HRT is synthetic progesterone known as progestin which is chemically different to the progesterone produced within the body. Since it is made entirely from chemical compounds it can cause the body to produce side effects such as breast tenderness or water retention.

The use of natural progesterone provides women with a means of boosting unacceptably low levels of progesterone in their bodies. Low progesterone levels may allow the hormone estrogen to reach a "dominate" level causing problems such as breast tenderness, water retention, irregular menstrual periods, as well as other, more serious, health issues.

By using natural progesterone the body will be able to maintain a balance between estrogen and progesterone that is the same as in nature. It has been raised as a concern that synthetic progesterone may actually interfere with the role that estrogen performs within the body.

The advantages of natural progesterone are:

prevents and shrinks fibroids

better sleep

increased libido

prevents depression

alleviates water retention

helps stabilize blood sugar

alleviates post partum depression

helps fight obesity

facilitates thyroid activity

helps build bones

alleviates wooly thinking

Natural progesterone is a safe way to maintain hormone balance and relieve the symptoms associated with approaching the menopause. It is totally safe to use as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy and can restore your optimal level of health naturally.
