Progesterone

Yes...For Men

When you hear the word progesterone, do you immediately think of women? Did you know that progesterone is needed in men too? Progesterone counters the effects of estrogen produced in men. Progesterone is also a precursor to Testosterone. As men age their testosterone levels drop and estrogen levels continue to rise. Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy starts affecting men in their 50’s., and interestingly, it is during this time that estrogen levels begin to climb while progesterone and testosterone levels are declining.

Low levels of progesterone may lead to other health conditions such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Osteoporosis
