Aloe vera blocks progesterone?
Wray, I was looking around online about progesterone and read that aloe vera blocks progesterone. I have used two brands of bioidentical progesterone cream that both have aloe vera high up on the ingredient list. I have definitely noticed improvements from using them, better sleep, noticeable calmness and no more hot flashes. However, I can't lose weight even on six weeks of under 500 calories a day. My weight is in the upper part of normal BMI.
My logic tells me this is nothing to do with the aloe vera. I did notice that when I didn't use progesterone cream for a couple of weeks my weight fell slightly, and as soon as I used it again I bloated, within hours.
