Natural Progesterone Cream Boosts Progesterone Levels Naturally
At Great Earth Compounding Pharmacy, we offer natural ways to boost progesterone levels in the body. One of these is with the use of natural progesterone cream. Before we tell you what this is all about, let us enlighten you more about what progesterone is and why it is essential for good health.
What is Progesterone?
Progesterone is one of the hormones manufactured by the body that plays a pivotal role in a woman’s reproductive system. It is released by the ovaries and is particularly important for the normal menstrual cycle, ovulation, and for a healthy pregnancy as it prepares the lining of the uterus for implantation and maintains the pregnancy. As well being produced in the ovaries, some small amounts of progesterone are produced by the adrenal glands and, during pregnancy, in the placenta.
Along with maintaining a woman’s menstrual cycle and playing a key role during pregnancy, progesterone normalizes levels of blood sugar, regulates thyroid function, utilizes fat for energy, prevents inflammation and swelling, boosts libido or sex drive, improves sleep quality, and much more.
What Causes Low Progesterone?
There are several causes of low progesterone levels, such as:
- High levels of stress
- Poor nutrition
- Weight gain
- Lack of exercise
- Medications that interfere with production
- Insulin resistance
- PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome)
- Natural aging which causes a reduction in hormone levels
Poor nutrition and lack of exercise have become such a wide-spread way of life that it’s basically epidemic in proportion. The primary group that it currently affects is our youth. There is a whole generation that has grown up on fast-food and considers ketchup to be their main vegetable. These same young people consider playing video games their most significant form of exercise. When you put these elements together you also incur weight gain, insulin resistance and generation of diabetics and pre-diabetics in the making.
One of the side effects of this scenario is that this group tends to also suffer from estrogen-dominance and low progesterone: Young men with fatty breast tissue and young women with no hips, both sexes with pot bellies despite their weight. Supplementing with natural Progeterone can help level out these conditions. Encouraging a diet of real food and exercise will not only be helpful, but maybe easier to implement with a normal level of hormones coursing through their young bodies.
The Problem with Low Levels of Progesterone
Most of the symptoms of low progesterone are similar to what other medical conditions may produce and so it’s essential to seek proper diagnosis. Here are some signs of low levels of progesterone:
- Intense sugar cravings
- Ovarian cysts, endometriosis (uterus wall thickening)
- Low basal body temperature
- Irregular periods, menstrual cramps, blood clots during menstruation
- Arthritis, fibromyalgia (long-term body-wide pain), headaches, fatigue
- Recurrent early miscarriage
- Cold hands and feet, brittle nails, cracked heels, acne
- Low libido, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse
- Depression, anxiety, mood swings
- Gallbladder problems
Restore Proper Levels Of Progesterone Naturally
Progesterone replacement therapy is an effective way to maintain proper levels of progesterone in the body, and there is a natural way to increase these levels.
The natural way to maintain progesterone is called bioidentical progesterone replacement therapy. It involves giving supplemental doses of this hormone that has chemical structures identical to what the body produces naturally. There are also various ways to administer progesterone, for example: by cream, gel or capsules, sl or suppositories are available. At Great Earth Compounding Pharmacy, we provide natural progesterone cream, which is not only convenient to use but also effective in restoring the proper balance of this essential hormone.
