Natural Progesterone cream for men. Because of its many metabolic functions (over 300) progesterone is critical to good health. Both men and women need progesterone as a precursor to all the terminal steroids that exist in the body. After age 40, men begin to lose their ability to produce progesterone in sufficient quantity to maintain all the positive biochemical functions it normally performs. One of these functions is the production of Testosterone, a terminal steroid necessary for healthy metabolism in males. This decrease in progesterone, in men, can have serious consequences, in that, as progesterone levels decline, the amount of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) increases. DHT has been shown to be a causative factor in male pattern baldness, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer.
The application of 10 mgs of natural progesterone has been shown, through research, to block the enzyme (alpha 5 reductase) that is responsible for the biochemical conversion of Testosterone to DHT.
There are many progesterone creams on the market today, but the only one recommended, for men, by The Institute for Natural Health and Wellness, is Prosta-Health.
1- Prosta-Health is a transdermal cream with a liposomal delivery system ensuring total delivery of the progesterone to the bloodstream.
2- It comes in a convenient pump container and delivers exactly 10 mgs of progesterone per pump. (A Textbook of Physiology, Guyton, Arthur; states that men will produce, on average, 10mgs of progesterone per day)
Progesterone is called "natural" to signify that it is the identical molecule to that produced by the human body itself, and hence treated by the human anatomy as a part of its own - and not as a foreign substance. Because progesterone is a natural substance, it cannot be patented.
