Progesterone Plus Cream 2 oz

Natural progesterone, now referred to as bio-identical progesterone, is structurally the same as human progesterone and releases the full range of biologic activity of hormone produced naturally by the body. Transdermal progesterone passes through the skin into capillaries in the underlying fat layer and is passively diffused into the blood stream. In contrast to oral progesterone which is subject to removal by the liver, transdermally-applied progesterone escapes this first-pass effect to retain potency when modest amounts are used. Progesterone deficiencies may occur in association with disturbances in premenstrual and menopausal health. Progesterone facilitates bone deposition while balancing the effects of estrogen. Natural progesterone is just as effective as, and much safer than, synthetic progesterone. Supportive factors in Progesterone Plus include primrose oil and extracts of chasteberry, wild yam, and black cohosh.

Natural progesterone may have distinct advantages over synthetic progesterone in terms of safety and effectiveness (Comp Ther 1998;24:336-9).

Progesterone, like estrogen, is a hormone that plays an important role in bone metabolism (Endocr Rev 1990;11:386-98).

Topical natural progesterone supports bone maintenance (Eur J Nutr 2004;43:246-57), and, when combined with a program of diet, exercise and vitamin and calcium supplementation, supported accumulation of bone mass over a three-year period (Int Clin Nutr Rev 1990; 10:384-91).

Topical natural progesterone has been shown in double blind research to promote normal hormonal health during menopause (Obstet Gynecol 1999;94:225-8).

A controlled trial of 1/4 teaspoon of cream daily, containing 20 mg transdermal natural progesterone, given to 102 menopausal women, stabilized vasomotor function in the majority of subjects (Obstet Gynecol 1999;94(2):225-8).

Karuna Progesterone Plus is free of alcohol, parabens and urea. Each 2 oz. tube is standardized, quality-controlled and safety-sealed to prevent oxidation and bacterial contamination.

Each 2 oz. tube contains natural progesterone USP (25mg per tsp.), which applies easily and absorbs rapidly into the skin, leaving no sticky or oily residue. Each tube is accompanied by an educational brochure that contains complete dosing instructions and other valuable information.

Suggested Use:
