Proferia

There are many misconceptions regarding progesterone. For years it was thought to be a simple sex hormone.

However, research has shown that progesterone is vital to men and women of all ages. For women, progesterone begins to be secreted right before ovulation, while a decrease in estrogen production occurs. The amounts of progesterone produced naturally in the body are measured in milligrams, much like many of today's vitamin and mineral supplements. On the other hand, estrogen is secreted in much smaller amounts, and therefore measured in micrograms, or 1,000th of a milligram. Due to this, it is easy to see how a miniscule increase in estrogen production can actually have a large effect on the body's overall hormone balance. Excessive estrogen, also known as estrogen dominance can lead to many unpleasant changes such as lowered energy, decreased libido and even weight gain. Many women have been lead to believe that estrogen is the answer to many common hormonal challenges, however this is not always the case.

Hormone balance is vital for those trying to achieve proper health. Women are becoming increasingly susceptible to estrogen dominance due to many common items that we use in our everyday lives. Estrogen is commonly found in forms of oral contraceptives and hormone replacement therapies, but also in many chemicals used in the production of the foods we eat. There are over 50 chemicals that have been identified as hormonal disruptors, and research has shown that many of today's pesticides actually mimic estrogen in our bodies.

It is important to understand that hormone balance can be achieved in large part by increasing the amount of progesterone in one's body. Progesterone and estrogen are obviously not the only two hormones that are at work here, but progesterone plays a role that estrogen does not, and that is the fact that it is a precursor to many other hormones in the body. Progesterone is also calming, and counteracts many of the uncomfortable symptoms one would experience with excessive estrogen. It also has been shown to boost immune health and increase energy levels.


Suggested Use

Directions: Proféria should be applied once daily or as directed by your healthcare provider. Apply to areas where your skin is thin, such as the neck, breasts, inside the arms etc. The amount needed will vary from individual to individual and dependent on the symptoms experienced, typically ¼ to ½ of a teaspoon daily.

Warning: Do not take Proferia without the consent of your physician if you are pregnant or nursing.

Pre-Menopausal Women

For best results it is recommended to begin using progesterone creams for a period of two weeks in between each menstrual cycle. Calculated from day 1 of the menstruation cycle (the first day of bleeding), begin using Proféria on Day 12 through day 26, applying as recommended below. Stop using the cream from day 27 through day 11 of the next cycle month. It is important to take these breaks each month in order to allow the body to re-sensitize to the cream. Alternate the area of application to maximize absorption.

Post-Menopausal Women

For best results it is recommended to apply Proféria as directed below for a period of 21 consecutive days during the month. Stop using Proféria for one week in order for the body to become re-sensitized to the progesterone. Alternate the area of application to maximize absorption.


Frequently Asked Questions

Proféria is a topical progesterone cream that may be used to increase progesterone levels in women who are suffering from hormonal imbalances. Unlike other hormones, researchers have found that progesterone is optimally delivered to the body when applied through the skin as opposed to being administered orally. Proféria is all natural, containing no synthetic hormones typically prescribed by physicians.
Proféria contains a highly soluble wild yam extract as a base for its high absorption rate, as well as 500 mg of USP progesterone per ounce. It does not contain petroleum, lanolin, or other animal derived ingredients.
Studies have been conducted that demonstrate the safety of USP progesterone when applied topically as a therapy for hormone imbalance. If you suffer from symptoms that are believed to be the result of a hormonal imbalance, we recommend consulting your physician prior to starting any hormone therapy.
Mexican wild yam has been shown to be an excellent source of natural progesterone. However, the human body cannot convert this extract into progesterone on its own. The progesterone must be extracted from Mexican wild yam in a laboratory setting, where it can then be standardized and tested for safety and efficacy. Progesterone can only be extracted from wild yam in a laboratory setting, as it is in Proféria, and the end result is a bio-identical hormone that is ideal for women suffering from hormonal imbalances.
No serious or adverse side effects have been reported from applying Proféria.
For best results, apply the cream as directed.
Proféria can be used safely while taking dietary supplements.
For therapeutic regimens, the progression may be slow for some and quicker for others. Typically, anytime one is addressing hormonal imbalance with a product such as Proféria, symptoms of hormonal change can occur in a matter of days, though it is not always common to happen that quickly. This is the first step in the process, and the most important, as hormonal imbalances left in their unbalanced state can lead to an increasing variety of health concerns.
The formula is vegetarian and vegan in accordance with the guidelines of the American Vegetarian Association.
The product is comprised of materials that are not genetically engineered organisms as defined by the National Organic Standards Board. Genetically engineered is defined as follows: Made with techniques that alter the molecular or cellular biology of an organism by means that are not possible under natural conditions or processes. Genetic engineering includes recombinant DNA, cell fusion, micro-and macro-encapsulation, gene deletion and doubling, introducing a foreign gene, and changing the position of genes. It shall not include breeding, conjugation, fermentation, hybridization, in-vitro fertilization, and tissue culture.
Yes, Proféria and natural progesterone are Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) by the FDA.

Proferia outranks all other plant-based hormone cremes

I have tried nearly every plant-based hormone crème on the market and I have consistently gotten the best results from Proferia. I have been using these crèmes instead of pharmaceuticals (HRT's) for over ten years, and the Proferia stops the hot flashes for me. Can't live without this product! Thanks very much for all you do!!!
