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.
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:
In the right amount, bioidentical
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.
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.
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.

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”.

Some theorize that estrogen dominance in men is contributing to:

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.
