1. What is Progesterone?
is a hormone. But, it is not just a sex hormone, as it is commonly
assumed and it is not just a female hormone which is the other common
misconception. It is in fact considered “the mother of all
hormones.” It is essential to all human life – men and
is true that it is involved in the reproductive process, particularly
pregnancy, which is why it is has the sex-stigma attached to it.
But it serves a far more important daily purpose. Here’s why
is the essential raw ingredient from which our bodies make all the
other hormones! This makes it very important indeed and in fact
vital to our health.
2. What is Natural Progesterone and Natural Progesterone
progesterone is a natural hormone that is currently being derived
from the plant extract – stigmasterol, found in the soya bean.
progesterone comes in a variety of different forms, but the most
popular and effective by far are the ones that come in cream form.
The other forms such as tablets, capsules, oils, sprays, injections
and suppositories either give a quick release of the hormone and
are therefore not suggested for long term use or up to 90% of the
benefits are destroyed by the digestive system and liver if taken
cream is easy to apply, cost effective, can be used long term and
has a moisturizing affect on the skin. It is applied at specifically
allocated times in the cycles or calendar month.
3. What does USP Natural Progesterone Cream
simply stands for United States pharmaceutical grade. You should
always look for a cream that is 100% USP grade progesterone.
If our bodies produce progesterone anyway, why do we need to use
are many reasons why woman become progesterone deficient and need
to supplement with natural progesterone, but at the base of the
problem is something called Estrogen Dominance - which means there
is too much estrogen and not enough progesterone present in the
body. You may be surprised to learn that most women in the industrialized
countries suffer from estrogen dominance due to use of synthetic
hormones, petrochemical based cosmetics and environmental toxins
to name but a few.
is not an “alternative remedy”, it’s an essential
need. If your body cannot produce enough progesterone of its own
because of being poisoned then you need to help yourself by raising
your progesterone levels to protect your health.
What are the symptoms of low progesterone?
are many symptoms related to low progesterone levels. Progesterone,
being the “master hormone” or “mother of all hormones”
is vital to optimal health, emotional and mental balance. For a
full list of low progesterone
symptoms click here.
6. What are the causes of hormone imbalance?
causes of hormone fluctuations vary. Women the world over are unwittingly
putting themselves out of balance through misinformation and bad
choices. These are some of the common ways that our hormone levels
get disrupted and progesterone levels drop.

7. How do I get my hormones balanced?
Progesterone creams are the easiest and safest way to raise your
progesterone levels and balance your hormone levels.
are instructions within each set of Natpro that explains when to
apply the cream depending on whether you are still menstruating
or pre-/peri-/ post menopausal. By following these guidelines you
can safely balance your hormone levels.
8. Which is the best progesterone cream?

is a USP natural progesterone cream of the highest quality. It is
the first and currently the only progesterone cream to make use
of 89% organic ingredients and non-toxic preservatives*. It does
what it says and more, click here for details.
note, at present the “progesterone part” of creams cannot
be made organic, but the majority of the rest of the ingredients
9. Is Natural Progesterone a safe way to
raise progesterone levels?
natural progesterone safe to use, is a most frequently asked question.
Here’s what Dr Paul Layman had to comment about Natpro and
its possible side effects. He practices in the UK and runs a cancer
is safe as houses as far as I am concerned. People get ill because
their systems are out of balance. Bringing the hormones back into
balance with progesterone is part of the healing."
10. What are the benefits of progesterone
you correct a hormonal imbalance such as a progesterone deficiency,
your body will begin to re-balance itself. The symptoms that manifest
as a result of the imbalance and the ways in which they re-balance
themselves are unique to each individual. Remember progesterone
is the “master hormone” and once your body is getting
enough of it, symptoms that you thought were not even related to
hormone imbalances tend to disappear. This is why Natural Progesterone
Creams can appear to be a miracle cure. However, the use of natural
progesterone is not a cure-all, but it is a basic building block
that in this modern day many people find themselves lacking.
the body is in balance, health is its natural state.
there are so many benefits to using natural progesterone I’ve
dedicated an entire page to them. Click here
for full details.
11. What is the difference between natural
progesterone vs progestin?
exists between the words progesterone and progestogen
or progestin. Progesterone is a natural hormone
made by the body and which is now being made from the plant extract
diosgenin or stigmasterol. Progestogen and progestin, on the other
hand, are synthetic hormones (with a molecular structure that differs
from that of progesterone) used by the drug companies in oral contraceptives
and HRT in preference (for commercial reasons) to the natural hormone.
The contra-indications, precautions, and adverse reactions of these
synthetics hormones make for horrifying reading.
12. If Natural Progesterone is as amazing
as it sounds, why hasn’t my Doctor told me about it?
do not believe that anyone going into medical practice decided to
do so as a way to harm or misguide people. Doctors often come up
at the short end of the stick when the negative effects of things
like estrogens and synthetic progestins etc start coming to light.
The simple fact of the matter is they know no better!
Progesterone supplementation is not taught in medical school. Therefore,
when discussed with conventionally trained doctors they do not fully
comprehend progesterone's functions. Nor do they realize the dangerous
consequences of prescribing synthetic hormones such as Progestins
and branded drugs like Provera, Prempro and Premarin.
On-going ‘education’ is provided to Doctors by major
pharmaceutical companies who obviously have an interest in the synthetic
patented products they are pushing. They play down the negative
side effects and tout its benefits.
reason that the pharmaceutical companies are not singing the praises
of Natural Progesterone from the rooftops is because it is natural
and therefore – it cannot be patented! Because it can’t
be patented it can’t be monopolized and therefore they won’t
touch it, endorse it or recommend it because – there are no
big profits involved!
13. Can a hormone imbalance cause food
One of the many functions of progesterone is blood sugar regulation.
Therefore if your estrogen levels are too high and your progesterone
levels too low, food cravings and binge eating is a common result.
Natural progesterone helps normalize blood sugar levels. When your
blood sugar level is too low – you crave food – usually
high-sugar or sweet foods such as chocolate. Anyone not experienced
chocolate cravings during PMS? If you indulge in these quick sugar
fixes your body stores this excess sugar … as fat. As you
correct your progesterone deficiency you will lose weight and the
food cravings will ease off.
14. Can a hormone imbalance make you tired
Chronic fatigue is a common symptom of progesterone deficiency.
It is usually related to stress. Unfortunately many women now experience
adrenal exhaustion, particularly in their mid thirties, rendering
their adrenals incapable of making enough progesterone to counter
the stress: a vicious circle. High levels of progesterone are needed
to overcome chronic fatigue - 200mg/day of supplemental progesterone
has been found to be beneficial when maintained until the symptoms
have disappeared. Once the symptoms have subsided the amount can
be reduced to the level of stress being experienced.
15. Can back pain be related to a hormone
These are all typical estrogen dominance symptoms: general aches
and stiffness, particularly in the morning, pain in the joints and
back, fatigue and difficulty sleeping. Many find their symptoms
increase before menstruation. Progesterone is an excellent anti-inflammatory
as it is the precursor to cortisone. Used as a skin cream and rubbed
directly onto the painful area it has been known to help many people.
16. Can stress and irritability be related
to a hormone imbalance?
If you encounter a mildly stressful situation your body draws on
its progesterone to produce the hormones (adrenal corticosteroids)
to counteract it. These are the hormones that protect against stress.
BUT, if your body is in a constant or permanent state of stress
it can’t provide enough progesterone to be converted into
anti-stress hormones and the result is adrenal exhaustion and no
left over progesterone for other normal body functions. It’s
a bit of a catch 22 – constant stress reduces our levels of
progesterone resulting in too much estrogen which leads to more
stress and irritability. Supplementing with Natpro particularly
during overly stressful times can halt this vicious circle.
17. What are the side effects of progesterone
joy and happiness :-)
There really are no known harmful side effects for the use of natural
progesterone cream - no adverse side affects have been reported
and many people have benefited from its use for over 30 years.
18. At what age can I start taking progesterone?
woman between the ages of 13 and 117 needs to seriously consider
supplementation with a natural progesterone cream.
Because virtually every woman who lives in an industrialized country
(the United States, in particular) is at high risk of estrogen dominance
because of exposure to xeno-estrogens. Xeno-estrogens, which are
mostly petroleum based synthetic estrogens, are now present in massive
amounts in our food chain, water supply, and environment”
Jon Barron, author of ‘Lessons from the Miracle Doctors’
you are suffering from any of the symptoms of low progesterone,
you could start your progesterone supplementation as young as 13.
19. What are the causes of hormone imbalance
to the excessive use of environmental toxins and synthetic progestins
in our society, more and more teenagers are suffering from hormonal
imbalances early on. Girls are reaching puberty on an average of
2-3 years earlier than normal. Fried and trans fatty foods also
perpetuate the production of estrogen and further aggrevate the
situation. A sensible healthy diet and the use of a natural progesterone
cream can help your teenager through this transformational time.
20. How much progesterone is too much?
most people are chronically progesterone deficient and not the other
way around it is not really possible to overdose on progesterone.
Follow the guidelines provided with each pack of progesterone cream
and you’ll be sure to experience only benefits.
