Pros of Progesterone

7 October 27, 2011 - Archive

young living progessence plusProgesterone is a hormone found in both men and women that is generally associated with women’s health. It plays an important role in influencing menstrual cycles, pregnancy, and menopause. Genetic makeup, environmental influences, and other factors can negatively impact progesterone levels, which may lead to other imbalances in the body.

Progessence™ Plus serum, intended only for woman, is a good option for those looking to supplement progesterone levels. Expertly formulated by D. Gary Young and Dr. Dan Purser, Progessence Plus takes pure, USP-grade, super-micronized progesterone from wild yams and combines it with vitamin E and an essential oil serum to easily penetrate the skin for improved delivery. Containing Frankincense Oil, Bergamot Oil, and Peppermint Oil to aid in absorption, this product does not require the cycling of application sites as do most other progesterone products.

According to Dr. Purser, some of the common negative effects of menopause that adequate levels of progesterone can help support or minimize include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Increased wrinkles
  • Weight gain and muscle loss (sarcopenia)
  • Memory issues

For the remainder of the year, until December 31, Young Living is running a promotion for 10% off Progessence Plus serum. If you have ever thought about adding progesterone to your routine, now is the time to do it! As always, we would love to hear your feedback on Progessence Plus.

    Hi, I have just started looking into YL at the advise of a friend to help with infertility and endometriosis. Unfortunately, I’ve found all your information about your oils to be very vague. Is there anywhere on your site that I’m missing with detailed information about your products? Hormone supplements can be incredibly dangerous, and your lack of information honestly does not look promising.. Please let me know where i can get more details. Thank you.

    My daughter had a miscarriage and is now pregnant again is it safe for her to use progressence plus while she’s pregnant to help her keep this pregnancy? Her levels of progesterone get very low and we believe that’s why she miscarried so I thought this would help, but there is a lot of controversy on this oil.. I’d appreciate any feedback
    Thank you
