What is Progesterone Deficiency?
During menopause Progesterone levels fall almost to zero although the levels of estrogen only decrease 40-60% .This imbalance of progesterone and estrogen has been called “estrogen dominance” by John R. Lee, M.D. He states that the symptoms of estrogen dominance, also known as progesterone deficiency, may include bone loss, swollen or fibrocystic breasts, depression, fluid retention, weight gain, mood swings, loss of libido, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and facial hair growth, just to mention a few. Dr. Lee’s patients have used Natural Progesterone derived from soy since 1985. Naturezone Cream Natural Progesterone is available in a cream or a gel. The cream takes up to an hour to absorb into the system. The gel, however, absorbs within 1-5 minutes. This topical application bypasses the liver. If taken orally, the liver breaks down the Natural Progesterone and leaves only 20% of the intake available for the body’s use.
