Nutritional Supplements to Promote Progesterone Production

For best results during perimenopause, it is not

enough to reduce estrogen levels in your body. You also have to

promote more frequent ovulation. This will move you from estrogen

dominance back to hormonal balance.

  • Flaxseed oil or ground flax meal help

    to promote more frequent ovulation and therefore more frequent

    progesterone production. They also prevent pain due to menstrual

    cramps and endometriosis, reduce PMS symptoms, and protect us

    from inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis.

  • You need enough B-3 (25-100 mg), B-6 (50

    mg twice a day), zinc (15-30 mg), vitamin C (700-2,000 mg),

    and magnesium (350-500 mg) to convert flax oil into series

    1 and series 3 prostaglandins in your body.

  • Vitex, or Chaste tree extract,

    (225 mg daily) increases the production of the luteinizing hormone

    that triggers ovulation at midcycle, promoting progesterone production.

    It also inhibits release of the follicle-stimulating hormone that

    stimulates estrogen production in the first half of the menstrual

    cycle. So it normalizes the secretion of hormones and helps to

    bring estrogen and progesterone into balance during perimenopause.
