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.
Progesta-Care bioidentical cream or spray can be used by those who are estrogen dominant and/or suffering from fibroids and other women's fibrosis conditions. They can also be used for general progesterone supplementation.
Progesta-Care spray is all natural, free of synthetics, and PARABEN FREE.
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.
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.
The Progesta-Care brand of natural bioidentical progesterone creams and spray from Life-Flo are made for hormone imbalances and a variety of women's fibrosis related conditions. They have no synthetic chemicals (xenoestrogens). The chemicals in many progesterone "natural" products are xenoestrogens, which can contribute to estrogen dominance. The amount of progesterone in these products is the amount recommended by Dr. John Lee, author of Hormone Balance Made Simple.
For women working on shrinking fibroids, have other women's fibrosis conditions, AND are still estrogen dominant, choose Progesta-Care natural progesterone cream or spray with NO phytoestrogens. Paraben free.
Progesta-Care Complete includes Prognenolone and 7-Keto DHEA and can be used by those who are estrogen dominant and/or suffering from fibroid and other women's fibrosis conditions. It can also be used for general progesterone supplementation. Paraben free.
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. Paraben free.
For women looking for both natural progesterone plus estrogen supplementation, Progesta-Care Estriol an optimal balance blend of natural progesterone and estriol. Paraben free.
Progesta-Care PLUS and Estriol are NOT for women with large fibroids, and who 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: Some research suggests progesterone might stimulate fibroid growth. If a fibroid is large and mature and has not responded to estrogen control, progesterone could be contributing to its growth. This is only a hypothesis . Other health experts feel progesterone acts to mediate estrogen and regulates its effects during the menstrual cycle, and believe that it 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 healthcare provider to determine what is best for your individual needs.
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”.

Progesta-Care® 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 palms of the hands and soles of the feet can be useful areas also.
Please Note: It is not recommended to use 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.†
Always check with a licences health care practitioner before you use any hormones, even natural, bioidentical hormones. They will help you to find the ideal dosage based on your needs and other factors that vary for each person.
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.

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.
