Bioidentical Plant Based Progesterone
What It Is, How It Works
Progesterone is a naturally occurring female gonadal hormone produced by both the ovaries and adrenal glands. There are different derivatives of the naturally occurring/endogenous/bioidentical progesterone, (medroxyprogesteron acetate and dydrogesterone), the later are not naturally occurring, rather altered molecules that are not naturally found in the female body).
Often when a woman is found to have endometriosis their blood work is found to be deficit in progesterone levels, either by absolute or proportional values in comparison to estrogen. Excess estrogen levels have been found to be inflammatory and cause excesses proliferative effects on hormone responsive tissue in women.
Progesterone without an estrogen component have been effective in the treatment of endometriosis. Positive effects have been shown on proliferation and inflammatory reactions of endometrial stromal cells both in vitro and in vivo.
In the past because of old and outdated nomenclature, (progest)erone/pro-gestation/pro-birth and physicians basic lack of in depth hormone functional knowledge considered progesterone a hormone of pregnancy only. This could not be farther from the truth; progesterone receptors have been found throughout the female body and involve non-pregnancy functions. Adequate progesterone levels are important for fat conversion into energy, brain chemistry as an anti-depressant, libido, regulate blood sugar, protection and prevention of endometrial and breast cancer, normalize blood clotting and facilitate optimal thyroid function.
Women with thyroid disfunction many times also have low progesterone levels. The symptoms of progesterone deficiency and hypothyroidism can be very similar.
