The link between progesterone and craving control is the role progesterone plays in the regulation of blood sugar. Uncontrollable food cravings experienced by many women before a period are caused by a drop in progesterone levels. Hormone imbalances induced by environmental poisons especially the 'xeno-estrogens' are thought by some authorities to be at the root of the problem.
This same problem has been observed in baboons and rhesus monkeys. The reason is that progesterone plays a major role in blood sugar regulation in all vertebrates.
It is essential to eat small meals of slow release carbohydrate every 3 hours and to supplement with progesterone to ensure the maintenance of adequate levels.
