More About Progesterone

Hormones Produced

There are two ways of producing a hormone: through hemi-synthesis (the most often-used method), and through total synthesis. Hemi-synthesis is performed by extracting diosgenin, a molecule of sapogenin steroids from a vegetable source called dioscorea villosa or yam.

Progesterone and Other Hormones

Hormones interact among themselves; therefore, the efficiency of progesterone can be increased if it is used in combination with other hormones. At the same time, progesterone raises the level of testosterone and melatonin. A blood, urine or a saliva test will help adjust the levels of the other essential hormones and determine the correct balance between them. We also recommend combining progesterone use with other non-hormone products in order to increase its efficiency. For example, antioxidants such as vitamin E, vitamin C, carotenoids, polyphenols (e.g., green tea), as well as other active ingredients, such as glucosamine and chondroitin, can increase progesterone’s effectiveness on the body.


When using hormones, the most important thing is to know exactly what supplement you will be using and to follow the recommended dosage. HORMONES ARE NOT A HEALTH THREAT AS LONG AS THEY ARE USED IN WELL-BALANCED DOSAGES.

Progesterone cream is not recommended for children, pregnant or lactating women, people suffering from benign hypertrophia or carcinoma of the prostate, and women with breast cancer or ovarian carcinoma. Please consult your physician before administering progesterone cream.
