I have weaned myself off of Wellsprings" Twenty to one" progesterone because I was growing to much facial hair on my chin. And loosing hair on my head. Why? Would Natrol work better. I was using it for my osteoporosis. My doctor told me the best thing for bones is estrogen. However after reading your article, I am not so sure. However, I do not eat meat, only wild sockeye salmon. Thank you for your help> Barb

Hi Barbara

Facial hair has nothing to do with progesterone, if that were the case then every single pregnant female would be walking around with hairy faces! A pregnant female produces a great deal of progesterone while pregnant. Wellsprings has 1260mg of progesterone concentration, whereas Natpro as 2000mg. It also contains grapefruit seed extract, a paraben. My guess is that you were also using the typically incorrect amount of 20-40mg per day. Excess estrogen and high testosterone levels cause hair loss, so too does stress.

Progesterone does help with osteoporosis, but so too does Vitamin D3 as it helps to build bones. Co-factors are needed when taking D3, especially magnesium. A vitamin D3 deficiency also reduces the benefits of progesterone. Do you know what your level is?

Your diet is your personal preference, but I promote the eating of red meat as a diet high in fat, medium protein and low carbs is needed for better health.
