Progesterone plays a important role in maintaining hormonal balance in the female body. It supports several normal body functions related to the reproductive cycle in the female.
Many women experience a drop in progesterone levels as they age. When progesterone levels drop below normal, several effects can occur, including hot flashes, moodiness, excess body hair and brittle bones.
How It Works
Like estrogen, natural progesterone is made by the ovaries during the menstrual cycle. It balances the effects of estrogen. Progesterone supports cell oxygenation, normal blood sugar levels, mood regulation, bone formation and utilization of fat for energy.
Some plants contain phytonutrients that are chemically similar to progesterone. Mexican Wild Yam contains generous amounts of a substance called diosgenin, which is a precursor to progesterone that can be converted to progesterone in a laboratory.
Progesterone’s function as an estrogen balancer makes it beneficial for supporting the body during aging, menopause, hot flashes, PMS and other health concerns.

Thanks to the dedicated efforts of researchers such as Dr. John Lee, who have studied ways to treat menopause and peri-menopause, we are finding new and better ways to approach life cycle transitions.
Dr. John Lee in his book “What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause” states that women in Western Industrialized Countries commonly suffer from a hormonal imbalance called estrogen dominance.
More than a decade ago, after reading the work of Dr. Katherine Dalton in London, who defined PMS and found success using high-dose progesterone administered as rectal suppositories, Dr. John Lee decided to utilize natural progesterone cream in the treatment of his patients with PMS. The results were most impressive.
The majority (but not all) of those patients reported remarkable improvements in their menopause symptoms, including the elimination of their premenstrual water retention and weight gain.
Indeed Dr. Joel T. Hargrove of Vanderbilt University Medical Center has published results indicating a 90% success rate in treating PMS with progesterone.
Dr. John Lee has received hundreds of letters and phone calls from women and their doctors over the past few years who report that PMS and other menopause symptoms has been alleviated with the use of progesterone.
Pro-G-Yam cream contains 500 mg progesterone per ounce, in a unique herbal base designed for maximum skin absorption and efficacy, including Mexican Wild Yam root extract (an excellent source of diosgenin), a precursor to progesterone.
