Progesterone is a female hormone produced by the ovaries. As a hormone‚ progesterone plays an important role during your menstrual cycle‚ as well as during pregnancy. It also helps strengthen the bones of women who are susceptible to bone loss or thinning bone matter. Unfortunately‚ some women suffer from progesterone deficiency‚ and many may not even know it. A lack of progesterone can cause you to experience a variety of problems‚ including insomnia‚ trouble conceiving‚ heavy or irregular menstrual cycles‚ miscarriage‚ fatigue‚ depression‚ and weight gain. Progesterone creams such as Karuna Health’s Progesterone Plus can serve as a natural solution to progesterone deficiencies. As a health aid‚ natural progesterone may be more effective than synthetic progesterone; it’s safer to use and may have fewer side effects. Natural progesterone helps your body regulate estrogen‚ another important female hormone. When you apply progesterone to your skin‚ it passes through the layers of your skin until it reaches the last layer—the fat layer‚ which has capillaries that distribute the hormone to your bloodstream. The hormone retains more potency when it enters your body through your skin‚ as opposed to orally. Besides progesterone‚ Progesterone Plus by Karuna also contains the following beneficial ingredients: Primrose oil‚ wild yam‚ black cohosh‚ and chaste berry; all of which help encourage hormonal balance Jojoba oil and shea butter‚ both of which are skin moisturizers Vitamin E‚ which is both a skin soother and antioxidant Whole leaf aloe vera‚ which soothes the skin Grapefruit seed‚ a natural preservative Apply Progesterone Plus topically to your skin in the amount and frequency recommended by your healthcare provider. Progesterone Plus is for external use only.
