In a previous blog, I talked about the ‘Sunshine’ vitamin, and today I want to share a little bit about the ‘Feel Good’ hormone. Natural progesterone is an incredible hormone that helps women with many benefits women. Take a look at some of these benefits:
Stops or reduces hot flashes
Stops or reduces night- or day-sweats
Reduces risk of breast cancer
Kills breast cancer cells (causes apoptosis)
Reduces or reverses fibrocystic breast tissue
Reduces the risk of heart attacks (reduces coronary artery disease)
Causes somnolence (sleepiness) and aids in sleep
Causes weight loss
Causes increase muscle
Gets rid of migraines and menstrual headaches in women (not men)
Shuts down endometriosis
Halts abnormal uterine bleeding
Causes hair regrowth (thicker hair)
I can imagine almost every woman has at least one thing on the above list they would like to reduce or stop. The women in my family that take the compounded progesterone version, that dissolve under the tongue, rave about the benefits! Since monthly cycles are less painful, or nonexistent, they do not need to plan for ‘that time’ of month.
I sat down with a woman who started to use progesterone in her 40s. She would suffer from horrible monthly cycles including heavy flow, clotting, and cramps. When she started progesterone, she had “an overall feeling of wellness, slept better, and felt an improvement in sex-drive.” The progesterone changed her monthly cycles into a much gentler experience along with clearer skin.
Another woman in her 20s says, “Progesterone is the ultimate woman's feel good hormone! I’ve taken it since I was 17 and I cannot not live without. It always keeps my cramps and emotions steady and helps me sleep fully. Progesterone just makes me feel better overall!”
As you can see the benefits of this natural hormone help women of all ages. If you are interested to learn more about progesterone, speak with your doctor and check out Dr. Purser’s book PROGESTERONE: The Ultimate Woman’s Feel Good Hormone.
