The primary functions of ProgestoMend™ are to support the natural production of progesterone and supports how tissues throughout the body respond to progesterone.This is accomplished by supporting the function of progesterone producing glands, and by supporting the function of progesterone responsive tissues through the use of herbs that have phytoprogesterone properties and herbs that mimic the actions of progesterone.
Progesterone is produced in the adrenal glands of both genders, as well as by the ovaries and corpus luteum in females. While progesterone is also produced in the Leydig cells of the testes, it is typically converted to testosterone.
The synergistic combination of specific herbs in ProgestoMend™ support important functions associated with optimal progesterone health through progesterone specific actions of these herbs which:
Supports the natural production of progesterone.
Support healthy adrenal function, a major site of progesterone production.
Promote progesterone response in target tissue through the use of herbs with progesterone receptor agonist activity.
Promotes healthy function of bone, heart, brain, breasts, uterus & other progesterone sensitive tissues with progesterone mimetic herbs.
Support the anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and anxiolytic properties of progesterone with progesterone mimetic herbs.
Supports healthy brain function, memory, and cognition, enhances mood while promoting tranquility.
How is ProgestoMend™ used?
ProgestoMend™ is used by healthcare professionals to increase the natural production of progesterone and to support the health of tissues that respond to progesterone. ProgestoMend™ improves patients with many conditions including:
Patients who do not want to use Progesterone Replacement Therapy. Some patients would prefer to restore their body’s ability to make its’ own progesterone, instead of using progesterone replacement.
Patients who have post-pill-syndrome and want to restore their body’s natural ability to make progesterone. – These patients have had their ability to make their own progesterone stopped by synthetic progestogens. ProgestoMend™ can restore endogenous progesterone production.
Progestogen induced PMS. Some PMS is brought on by synthetic progestogen suppression of natural progesterone production. ProgestoMend™ can restore endogenous progesterone production.
PMS/PMDD. Most cases of PMS/PMDD have some degree of suboptimal progesterone production and/or function. ProgestoMend™ can restore normal progesterone production and normal menstrual function.
PCOS. Low progesterone levels are almost universal in PCOS patients. ProgestoMend™ can restore optimal progesterone production. Improved progesterone function also helps control excessive androgens.
Menopause Types® 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 & 12. These Menopause Types® require restoration of progesterone by using ProgestoMend™.
Patients who have signs and symptoms of progesterone resistance. Even if lab tests show appropriate progesterone levels, some patients have progesterone receptor resistance, especially if they have a history of progestogen or prednisone use, or excessive use of progesterone.
Patients on progesterone replacement therapy who want to decrease side effects & risks associated with progesterone replacement such as weight gain and high blood sugar.
Patients who want to wean off of progesterone replacement therapy. Use ProgestoMend™ a month before weaning off of progesterone to decrease symptoms of progesterone withdrawal.
