Progesterone, a hormone derived primarily from the corpus luteum and secondarily from the adrenal gland and the male testes, is a precursor hormone which can be converted, as required, into other steroid hormones such as DHEA, estrogen, androstenedione, testosterone, and cortisol. Karuna's Progesterone Pure is specifically designed for two populations: (1) male patients who may benefit from the supportive actions of progesterone and (2) all people suffering with skin sensitivities or allergies. Progesterone may play a critical role in men's health, opposing the effects of naturally-produced and environmental estrogens on tissues such as the prostate. In addition, Progesterone Pure is a hypoallergenic formula free of chemicals found in cosmetic skin creams, particularly synthetic fragrances and preservatives that can be agents for triggering skin sensitivities and allergies.
Suggested use for adults: Progesterone, being a small, fat-soluble molecule, is easily absorbed through the skin. For general application, skin sites recommended include the inner areas of the thighs and arms, neck, upper chest and abdomen. The site should be rotated daily for maximum absorption. Allow 2-3 months for maximum effect.
