ProgesterONE is our AMAZING Sex Hormone that unfortunately is the first Sex Hormone to decline.
And it does so when we are just Spring Chickens - in our late 30's! And it just continues to plummet for the next 10-15 years until we're almost completely depleted of ProgesterONE.
This plays Havoc on our Sleep! Because Progesterone INCREASES a neurotransmitter in the brain called GABA (or Gamma Amino Butyric Acid.).
GABA is our Calming Neurotransmitter.
In fact, in Conventional Medicine, we treat Anxiety disorders with medications like Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, and the old long acting anti-anxiety medication from the 60's and 70's - Valium.
Well guess how ALL those medications work? All they do is increase GABA in the brain! That's how they work.
So, ProgesterONE is VITAL for our mood and to help keep us calm!

Progesterone also helps prevent diabetes!
Progesterone decreased blood pressure, thus helping decrease heart disease! And finally ... what you have been hoping and waiting for ... Progesterone alone, even without Estrogen, can significantly reduce and even eliminate HOT FLASHES! Especially if you start using Progesterone before you enter Menopause.
