Progesterone, known for its calming and mood-enhancing properties, is also important for sleep, libido, and bone health in both men and women.

In men, progesterone acts as a precursor for testosterone production and helps balance estrogen levels. As men age, progesterone levels decrease, leading to an imbalance that can result in decreased testosterone, increased estrogen, and various symptoms such as low energy, decreased libido, sexual dysfunction, cognitive issues, weight gain, bone loss, hair thinning, joint pain and stiffness. Maintaining the balance between testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen is crucial for overall health in men.

Progesterone can:

Improve cardiovascular health

Stimulate hair growth

Generally good for mood and sleep

Reduce the risk of breast cancer
