Women in their perimenopausal and menopausal years may find great relief from menopausal symptoms with progesterone and phytoestrogens.
Progesta-Care PLUS contains natural bioidentical progesterone and phytoestrogens for those who need both progesterone and estrogen supplementation.†
Supplementation with natural progesterone cream can help to maintain a normal level of progesterone and a balanced ratio of estrogen to progesterone. The natural progesterone found in Progesta-Care PLUS is “natural USP progesterone”, which is biologically identical to the same hormone women produce.
We know through scientific discoveries that many different estrogens are produced by the body. However, there is a group of estrogen “look-alikes” found in plants. They are called phytoestrogens and have estrogen-like activity. During menopause, estrogen levels drop up to 60% and progesterone to nearly zero. Progesta-Care PLUS contains several phytoestrogens, including black cohosh, red clover tops extract, chaste tree berry extract, and Dong Quai root extract.
The progesterone and phytoestrogens in Progesta-Care PLUS offer an alternative to taking dangerous synthetic hormone replacement therapy (HRT). In fact, the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) clinical trial regarding the use of synthetic estrogen and progesterone was halted three years early when the independent data and safety monitoring board decided that benefits did not outweigh the risks.
The balance of progesterone and estrogen in a woman’s body is very important. During menopause, the levels of both progesterone and estrogen fall dramatically, and this hormonal imbalance can result in symptoms of perimenopause or menopause. Symptoms of reduced hormones include moodiness, hot flashes, night sweats, depression, weight gain, bloating, loss of libido, hair and skin changes, and breast tenderness.
Self-care, including exercise and a healthy diet, is an important foundation for hormone balance. Natural bio-identical progesterone cream with phytoestrogens is specially formulated to help support a healthy hormone balance.
The Progesta-Care® brand of natural progesterone creams from Life-Flo are high quality products that have no synthetic chemicals. This formula is recommended by Dr. John Lee, author of Hormone Balance Made Simple.
For those who have fibroid tumors or other women's fibrosis conditions, AND are still estrogen dominant, choose Progesta-Care natural progesterone cream WITHOUT phytoestrogens.

Progesta-Care PLUS is absorbed quickly into the skin, then moves into the underlying fat layer, and then into the bloodstream. It reaches its peak in the bloodstream 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 the palms of the hands and soles of the feet can be useful areas also.
Please Note: It is not advised to use any progesterone cream 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 of progesterone per day. This is equivalent to about the amount present in the blood during the last half of the menstrual cycle. One dose (pump) of Progesta-Care PLUS contains 20 mg of progesterone, and 25 mg of phytoestrogens. Some women choose to add a second daily dose when symptoms are severe, or during the initial months of progesterone cream use in order to more quickly raise their levels of progesterone and estrogens.
Note: Progesta-Care PLUS is not recommended for women with fibroids, other women’s fibrosis conditions, or who feel they are estrogen dominant. Instead, use Progesta-Care Progesterone Cream.
