Pros of Progesterone

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.

    Hello, I have been in menopause for 3 years. I started prempro hrt . I had to stop after 6 months due because I started bleeding. I am back to being very moody, not sleeping well, some hot flashes again. I’m trying to find the right hormone essential oil to help with these symptoms. Is this the one? Or should I look at a different one for the above symptoms? Please help
