Natural Progesterone

Natural progesterone is used to maintain a normal level of progesterone and a balanced ratio of estrogen to progesterone.  Natural USP progesterone is biologically identical to the hormone women produce, and offers an alternative to taking synthetic hormones.  Additionally, it protects against the undesirable side effects of excess estrogen.

Life-flo Progesta-Care bioidentical cream or spray can be used by those who are estrogen dominant and/or suffering from fibroid tumors and other women's fibrosis conditions. They can also be used for general progesterone supplementation.



Hormone Balance

The balance of progesterone and estrogen in a woman’s body is very important. Progesterone acts to balance excess estrogen thus preventing estrogen from becoming harmful to health, a condition known as estrogen dominance.  At different times in the life of a women, hormonal imbalance can result in symptoms of PMS, perimenopause, and menopause.

 

Symptoms of progesterone imbalance include:

  • Moodiness
  • Hot flashes
  • Depression
  • Weight gain
  • Bloating
  • Low libido
  • Breast tenderness
  • Prementrual syndrome

In the right amount, bioidentical
progesterone can help:

  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Have a calming effect
  • Enhance moods
  • Normalize sleep
  • Increase sex drive
  • Use fat for energy
  • Regulate fluid balance
  • Stabilize blood sugar and mineral balance

Self-Care

Self-care, including exercise and a healthy diet, is an important foundation for hormone balance. Natural progesterone is specially formulated to help support a healthy hormone balance. Please have your hormones tested to determine if you need hormone replacement therapy. If you can find a doctor to work with you, that would be helpful.

Progesterone Supplementation for Women

We offer the Progesta-Care brand of natural bioidentical progesterone creams and spray from Life-Flo for hormone imbalances and a variety of women's fibrosis related conditions.  We chose these high quality products because they have no synthetic chemicals, known as xenoestrogens. The chemicals in many progesterone "natural" products are xenoestrogens, which can contribute to estrogen dominance. The amount of progresterone in our products is the amount recommended by Dr. John Lee, author of Hormone Balance Made Simple.

Bioidentical Progesterone

Progesta-Care
For general bioidentical progesterone supplementation. For women working on shrinking fibroid tumors, have other women's fibrosis conditions, AND are still estrogen dominant, choose this Progesta-Care natural progesterone cream or spray with NO phytoestrogens.

Bioidentical Estrogen Cream

Progesta-Care PLUS
For women who are experiencing menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and need estrogen supplementation, Progesta-Care PLUS is an excellent cream that contains both natural progesterone and phytoestrogens.

PLUS is NOT for women with large fibroid tumors, and DO NOT have their estrogen dominance under control. Choose regular Progesta-Care instead.

Women and men experiencing estrogen dominance can also use DIM and/or Myomin to help metabolize and reduce unhealthy estrogen levels. Additionally, Calcium D-Glucarate can be used in conjunction with the above listed products to help make sure that used hormones are eliminated rather than being reabsorbed and deposited in tissues and organs where they can cause cellular damage.

NOTE:  We feel it is important for you to know that some research suggests progesterone might stimulate fibroid growth.  If a tumor is large and mature and has not responded to estrogen control, progesterone could be contributing to its growth. This is only a  hypothesis though, and we tend to agree with other health experts who feel progesterone acts to mediate estrogen and regulates its effects during the menstrual cycle, and does not contribute to fibroid growth. If your fibroid is large and mature, you may consider NOT using a progesterone cream just to be safe.  Please speak with your health care provider about this decision.


Progesterone Supplementation for Men

Men's Progesterone Cream Progesta-Care for Men
In addition, men too can suffer from estrogen dominance. Estrogens from environmental and food sources (xenoestrogens) can produce hormonal stimuli that can contribute to inappropriate growth of mammary tissue cells, resulting in a problem society is now calling “man boobs”.  Read more on our Men's Progesterone page.

Some theorize that estrogen dominance in men is contributing to:

  • Prostate problems 
  • Breast enlargement
  • Bone/Muscle Loss
  • Impotency 
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Male patterned baldness
  • Weight gain
  • Low libido

Suggested Use According to Dr. John Lee, M.D.

Menstruating (ovulating) women in their reproductive years:  Apply once or twice a day as needed, starting on the 12th day after the first day of menstrual flow through the 27th day.

Perimenopausal women (still menstruating but with cycle changes): Apply once or twice a day as needed, starting on the 7th day after the first day of the menstrual flow through the 27th day.

Menopausal and post-menopausal women (no longer menstruating):  Apply once or twice a day as needed up to a maximum of 21 consecutive days, depending on the severity of your symptoms.  Resume after a seven day break.

CREAM - Pressing the pump firmly once, dispense cream into the palm of your hand and rub onto skin.  A rotation schedule is suggested so as to not repeat one location too often.  You may wish to tape this list to the cap of your bottle.

SPRAY MIST - Dispense three (3) sprays onto your skin. A rotation schedule is suggested so as to not repeat one location too often. You may wish to keep this list handy for a rotation schedule.

Monday - Inner Arms
Tuesday - Inner Thighs
Wednesday - Stomach
Thursday - Lower Legs
Friday - Abdomen
Saturday - Chest
Sunday - Hips

Once a day application - apply to area evenly
Twice a day application - suggest right side in AM, left side in PM

Progesta-Care is absorbed quickly into the skin, then moves into the underlying fat layer, and then into the blood stream.  It reaches its peak in the blood stream in about 3-4 hours. It will be available for the next 8 hours and then be completely cleared after 12 hours.  It is well absorbed on areas of the body mentioned above where there is good capillary blood flow.  The face, neck, and palms of the hands and soles of the feet can be useful areas also.

Please Note: We do not advise using any topical progesterone in body locations that alpha hydroxy acids have been used within the last 24 hours. Some data indicate such exfoliating acids may interfere with progesterone absorption.

The usual recommended dosage is 20 mg per day. This is equivalent to about the amount present in the blood during the last half of the menstrual cycle. One pump of Progesta-Care Cream, and three sprays of Progesta-Care Mist, each contain 20 mg.  Some women choose to add a second daily dose when symptoms are severe, or during the initial months of natural progesterone use, in order to more quickly raise their levels of progesterone.

Please check with your doctor before you use any hormones, even natural, bioidentical hormones. It is best if you find the optimum dose for yourself - every person is different.


Warning: Do not use if you are pregnant, lactating, or intend to become pregnant. For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Use intended for adults 18 years of age and older. Keep out of the reach of children. Do not exceed 2 oz. of the cream, or 0.5 oz. of the Mist, topically per month. Consult with a licensed health care practioner if you experience irritation, redness, or discomfort, any changes in breasts or menstrual irregularities, or before using this product if you have concerns about your health or if you have a medical condition.

I am a male and had read Dr. Lee's writings on both estrogen and progesterone, particularly on the matter of estrogen dominance. It is a big issue for both middle-aged+ women and men. From his and other's descriptions, I concluded I indeed had estrogen dominance, given symptoms.

Also relevant is that I had Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) and was being treated by my hair doctor for that. He put me on both finasteride and on Minoxidil. Finally, I had been taking 3 Saw Palmetto, 2x/day for the past 10 years, for to compensate for BHP in the prostate. If I skipped a dose, I was urinating every 2 hours.

I purchased Progesta-Care about a month ago. I have been using the woman's version, but only 1/4th dose (the suggested male dose), as iit is much more cost effective. Already it has exceeded my expectations, in unexpected ways, and faster than expected. I have been able to cut my Saw Palmetto intake by 1/3 with no increase in urination problems; that alone would have been worth it! But wait, there's more, lol.

Within 3 days of starting on Progesta-Care, I decided to dump the daily finasteride and Minoxidil, largely on a hunch. Slowly over the past few weeks, I have seen my scalp recover from its thin shiny nature, getting more rich and soft. The hair shafts are slowly getting thicker, but just at the roots. My hair is starting to stand up by itself again in a quite noticeable way. This was totally unexpected. Who knows if this will keep up, but I have every reason to expect so, if I have been indeed been estrogen dominant. I don't know if my hair is really fuller or not, but it certainly combs easier and stays in place by itself. Time will tell.

Shortly after buying the Progesta-Care, I looked some more into both it and its side effects, and they were all positive. Some authors noted that in even moderate levels, it inhibits the conversion of testosterone into DHT, which Saw Palmetto and finasteride do, but by different mechanisms. It therefore makes sense that my hair would be improved. Women's hair, in the 3rd and 4th trimester of pregnancy when their progesterone levels are up 200-300x, becomes rich and full. (We had 4 kids, and I know from what I speak, lol!)

Finally, there was a rapid loss of about 4 pounds, putting me a pound under my target weight. I measure this every morning, and can now say that the loss is real and consistent. I think that loss happened in the first week of taking Progesta-Care. Whether it was loss of retained water or loss of fat, I can't tell you, but it has certainly stayed.

In length, Progesta-Care is fantastic! For women, I noticed that Life Flo sells a related BiEst estrogen topical. (I think it's called BiEstro-Care.) Dr. Lee makes a huge deal about using a BiEst or TriEst bio-identical estrogens for women.

They are truly safe natural bio-identical estrogens and not the horse estrogen given in birth control and HRT. Also, BiEst and TriEst do not cause breast cancer like the horse-urine estrogens do. Myself, I need less estrogen, natural or not, so this is certainly not my issue! Were I married, though, I would certainly want my wife on it, from peri-menopause onwards.

This customer purchased the item at our site.
This is the best product out there for me. I have Estrogen Dominance (ED) and was placed in surgical menopause at an early age d/t no choice of my own. Through many years of research, going independent because insurance will not cover most Bio-identical HRT, lack of MD knowledge in this area, I have found that this PROGESTA-CARE "completes me." No kidding. I sleep better, my arms don't itch, I am emotionally balanced, my food cravings balanced to a normal level and I personally hope it will be always available to us women AND men without prescription. It states to take a week off every month from use. I can go no longer than 3 days and I am a wreck. I don't even try to take that week off b/c my Estrogen is too dominant. Taking time off makes me play catch up to rejuvenate my system again and is not worth it for me. All the negative symptoms surface again. I have taken it for about 3.5 years now, every day. I highly recommend it for women with ED, and for women in surgical menopause, pre-peri-meno and post menopause. Your life (and intimate life) will be pleasantly improved. Your bones will be healthier too (teeth too) Others will like to be around you more also. This product is a life saver for me, my brain and my hormones. It has a ton of natural ingredients in it....really is a super cream. Thank you to Dr. John Lee; his book Dr. John Lee's hormone balance made simple...start there.
