Pros of Progesterone

Posted on October 27th, 2011 | 18 comments

Progesterone is a hormone found in both men and women that is generally associated with women’s health. It plays an important role in influencing menstrual cycles, pregnancy, and menopause. Genetic makeup, environmental influences, and other factors can negatively impact progesterone levels, which may lead to other imbalances in the body.

Progessence™ Plus serum, intended only for woman, is a good option for those looking to supplement progesterone levels. Expertly formulated by D. Gary Young and Dr. Dan Purser, Progessence Plus takes pure, USP-grade, super-micronized progesterone from wild yams and combines it with vitamin E and an essential oil serum to easily penetrate the skin for improved delivery. Containing frankincense, bergamot, and peppermint essential oils to aid in absorption, this product does not require the cycling of application sites as do most other progesterone products.

According to Dr. Purser, some of the common negative effects of menopause that adequate levels of progesterone can help support or minimize include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Increased wrinkles
  • Weight gain and muscle loss (sarcopenia)
  • Memory issues

For the remainder of the year, until December 31, Young Living is running a promotion for 10% off Progessence Plus serum. If you have ever thought about adding progesterone to your routine, now is the time to do it! As always, we would love to hear your feedback on Progessence Plus.

    Progessence™ Plus serum does not seem to be available in the UK. Any reason why?


    • http://www.youngliving.com Young Living

      Each country has different regulations regarding ingredients. This is generally the reason some products are not available in different markets.

    I would love a Catalog. My sister just moved back to Texas from Orem, Utah and I used to love going to the stores and picking up the different items from the lavender farms. How much does it cost to sign up to sell?
    Thank You

    I purchased a bottle of Progessence Plus recently and when I received it, was shocked to see this on the label: “WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer.” Before actually using this product, I would like an explanation of this warning and why you would use such a chemical in a Young Living product?

    • http://www.youngliving.com Young Living

      This is on the label because we sell it in California and and they require it for all products containing progesterone. Our natural progesterone comes from the wild yam. I hope this answers your question.

      I understand there is no chemical in Progessence Plus. Many people are confused between the natural progesterone, which occurs in the human body, versus the synthetic that are sold as hormone replacement solutions by pharmaceutical companies. Synthetic progesterone is quite different molecularly than natural progesterone. Since Proposition 65 disclaimer mandated that the warning appeared on the label,Young Living feels unfair to exclude California residents from the benefits of natural progesterone, so I understand YL elected to place the disclaimer rather than removing the natural progesterone.

    I love Progessence Plus Serum. Thank you Young Living and thank you Dr. Purser. It helped me with cold sweets in no time.

  • Sara Martin

    Yes, thank you.

    Is Progessence plus safe for long term use? I have a client who goes through a bottle in about 6 weeks and has been doing so for a year.

    I posted on another Young Living distributor site and was referred to your blog. When using Progessence Plus Serum as directed (neck & inside forearms) I experience a rash. This rash will hang around for a good while & re-surface for probably a couple weeks (sometimes longer). I’ve stopped using the product for this reason.

    Just purchased this product but after purchase noted the cautionary statement about using it with birth control. What are the possible outcome should you combine the two? I do not necessarily want to go off the pill at this time. Is there a pill dosage of progesterone that is not worrisome? I know birth control pills have all different levels of progesterone.

      Unfortunately we are not able to give medical advice. We would refer you to your health professional for advice.

    • Brent

      Can you tell me what you saw about using it with the pill. I was wondering if there were any issues with this but can not find any mention of potential issues.


  • Catherine

    Is it OK to take Progessence serum at the same time with the prenelone cream product ?

  • Dale Carney

    I have found after 6 months of using Progessence Plus that i get a rash on my neck and some on my forearms and especially on my palms of my hands. I have never been prone to dermatitis before. Can i take Progessence Plus internally? Or should i use another product. It works for hot flashes but do not enjoy the rashes.

  • Instant Results

    I take the Progessence Plus internally for about 4 years now. I do not experience any rashes or any other “complications”. I am hot flashes free, don’t wake up at night no more and feel great in the morning.
