Progesterone is primarily a female hormone produced by ovaries, adrenal glands and placenta during pregnancy. It is also found in small amounts in men.
Progesterone is equally important as is estrogen in aging women. Progesterone protects against breast cancer, uterine cancer, osteoporosis and ovarian cysts. Progesterone is very useful in treating PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome) and migraine headaches.
Natural progesterone works in harmony with estrogen.
Natural progesterone is available in micronized form from compounding pharmacies either for oral use of sublingual.
