Efficacy of Progesterone

Progesterone is an essential hormone in women and men that helps balance other important hormones, stimulates metabolism, enhances sexual functions, and boosts good health and longevity. We produce natural progesterone when we are young, but as we get older, our progesterone levels begin to decline, which slows the production of other hormones and may lead to health complications.

How is Progesterone Produced in the Body?

Natural cholesterol is the raw compound that is used to create all hormones in the body. Cholesterol is converted to pregnenolone, which is then converted to progesterone and a number of other sex hormones including testosterone and estrogen.

Progesterone Used for Menopause

There are four stages to menopause: premenopause, perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause—each menopause period correlates to a woman’s timeline. However the main definition of menopause is when a woman does not receive her normal menstruation cycle for at least 12 months. During this time, hormones are being released at different rates than before causing the body to produce an imbalance of emotional signals. Progesterone cream provides the body with natural compounds that can balance hormones, which may help eliminate menopause discomforts, including hot flashes.

What are Steroids?

Steroids are hormones that are derived from the cholesterol material produced in the body. Steroid hormones include progesterone, DHEA, pregnenolone, estrogen, and testosterone.
