Progesterone is our First Sex Hormone to Decline! And it starts declining years before you're ready!
Progesterone starts to literally plummet when we hit about 35 years old! GOSH! That was 23 years ago for me! I wasn't ready for that!

Progesterone decreases 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.
