Progesterone cream is a wonderful product for women in peri-menopause and menopause, or even earlier as a therapy for estrogen dominance. When people think of female hormones, estrogen is usually the first thing that comes to mind.
Like estrogen, progesterone is a female sex hormone, and may be even more important for women in a number of instances.
As a woman approaches menopause, progesterone is the first hormone to decrease, which is followed by fluctuating estrogen levels.
It is important to use natural, bio-identical progesterone cream, which is made all natural, organic ingredients.
The Progesterone in our Young Hormones – Hormone Protect – is formulated into USP Progesterone from only Organic, Non-GMO Yams. Other over the counter bioidentical creams are not organically derived. In addition, the base cream, in which the USP Progesterone is combined is very important.
Many companies use cheap base creams that contain harmful or questionable chemicals. Young Hormones uses all-natural ingredients!!!! Young Hormones is absorbed almost instantly and there is no sticky residue like other bioidentical hormone creams.
When a natural progesterone cream is used, it is absorbed directly through the skin and into the bloodstream by-passing the liver’s filtering process. This means that you use much less progesterone than when taking progesterone pills. While the benefits of natural progesterone are many, the main benefit of natural progesterone is that it can help support your body in keeping estrogen and progesterone ratios in balance, resulting in maintaining hormone synergy.
Bio-identical progesterone (the same type of progesterone that is produced in the body) is not the same as synthetic progestin. Synthetic progestins have been linked to increased cancer risk, but natural, bio-identical progesterone has not. There was a large scale French study to determine the safety of synthetic progestin vs. natural progesterone, and it was found that using bio-identical progesterone did not raise cancer risk whereas the use of synthetic progestins did result in a “significant increase in cancer risk”.
Synthetic progestins are molecularly different from natural progesterone and therefore do not metabolize to the same compounds as natural progesterone. They do not show benefits for cognitive or anti-anxiety function.
In fact, they have not been found to have any of progesterone’s neuroprotective properties. The progestin that has been the most extensively studied and which is commonly used in synthetic hormone replacement therapy, MPA (medroxyprogesterone acetate), has been found to have negative effects on the nervous system and even reduces the beneficial effects of estrogen.
Reported side effects of synthetic progesterone include an increased risk of cancer, increased risk of birth defects if taken during the first four months of pregnancy, fluid retention, abnormal menstrual flow, nausea, acne, hirsutism, mental depression, nausea, insomnia, masculinization, and depression. It is contraindicated in those with thrombophlebitis, liver dysfunction, known or suspected malignancy of the breasts and genital organs. One of the metabolites has an anesthetic effect on brain cells. A woman on high doses of synthetic progesterone is often lethargic and depressed.
