PROGESTE CREAM with VITAMIN D-3


Topical Application is the Best Method for Vitamin D-3

Research & information on Vitamin D-3-www.vitamindsource.com

  •  Vitamin D-3 enhances the benefits of progesterone 
  •  Absorbs quickly providing the optimal level of Vitamin D-3
  •  Maximum relief from PMS, Peri-menopausal and menopause symptoms

Research published in late 2009, found a lack of vitamin D-3 reduces the benefits of progesterone.

The similarities between the two are almost endless. They both...

  • induce the anti-inflammatory Th2 response
  • inhibit the Th1 inflammatory response
  • suppress inflammatory cytokines such as TNF-a, IL2 and IL6
  • increase anti-inflammatory cytokines like IL-10
  • inhibit mast cell secretions
  • inhibit the estrogen induced increase in dendritic spine density
  • increase the expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF)
  • positively affect neurologic functioning
  • prevent neurodegeneration and enhance myelin repair
  • positively affect motorneuron disease
  • reduce damage in traumatic brain injury
  • reduce hypertension
  • regulate bone metabolism
  • prevent lipid peroxidation
  • are essential for pregnancy
  • positively affect the skin and hair
  • increase the concentrations of glutathione, the cells master antioxidant
  • increase levels of superoxide dismutase, a powerful antioxidant
  • inhibit mitosis, causing cell differentiation and apoptosis
  • down-regulate the expression of glucocorticoids
  • modulate fibroblast proliferation and collagen synthesis

Reduced levels of both progesterone and vitamin D are found in all the following diseases or disorders, and therefore constitute an increased risk factor for...

  • asthma and respiratory problems
  • depression
  • early ageing
  • cancer
  • epilepsy
  • heart disease
  • migraines/headaches
  • polycystic ovaries
  • miscarriage
  • fibroids
  • peripheral neuropathy
  • myopathy
  • Autoimmune diseases, such as MS, lupus, Sjogren's syndrome, arthritis etc.
  • SAD (seasonal affective disorder)
  • Alzheimer's disease (low allopregnanolone, a neuroactive metabolite of progesterone, appears a promising biomarker in dementia

Vitamin D toxicity

  • You can take a daily 10,000 IU vitamin D supplement for many months with no evidence of adverse effect (11).
  • Daily consumption of 50,000 IU for several months will cause hypocalcemia (elevated calcium level in the blood), which is the first manifestation of vitamin D toxicity. In contrast, the optimal level of 5,000 IU per day prevents the buildup of calcium in blood vessels (12).

How much vitamin D do you need?

  • The level of vitamin D needed for good health is a lot higher than the U.S. Food and Nutrition Board set as the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA). The RDA recommends 200 international units (IU) per day for children and adults less than 50 years old, 400 IU for adults age 50-70, and 800 IU for adults over the age of 70. The RDA was set at a level that prevents rickets but does not prevent numerous other diseases.

  • An optimal level of vitamin D can prevent and heal cancers (4), multiple sclerosis (5), cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, and infections such as influenza (6, 7). Here is the most recent thinking on blood vitamin D levels:

        

  ng/ml

  nmol/L

        

  <10

  <25

  severely deficient

        

  10-19

  25-49

  deficient

        

  20-29

  50-74

  insufficient for good health

        

  30-49

  75-124

  sufficient for good health

        

  50-99

  125-249

  optimal for good health, healing and disease prevention

        

  100-150

  250-375

  excessive

        

  >150

  >375

  potentially toxic

A study reported in Cancer in 2002 found an increase in cancers due to a lack of UV-B and vitamin D3. The researchers believe that mortality rates could be reduced by careful exposure to sunlight and taking vitamin D3 supplements. Progesterone and Vitamin D have remarkably similar properties, and studies on TBI have found a lack of vitamin D reduces the benefits of progesterone.

It has now been recognized that if a mother has been exposed to high levels of natural or xeno-estrogens whilst pregnant, the fetus could be affected, leading to breast, ovarian and endometrial cancer in women and testicular, prostate and increasingly breast cancer in men.

Research has shown that the longer a women is exposed to her own natural estrogen, i.e. a long reproductive lifetime, the greater the chances of her getting cancer. Women with low levels of progesterone have a 5.4 greater chance of getting breast cancer with 10 times a greater chance of dying from all cancers. Breast cancer recurrence after a mastectomy is more likely if the surgery is performed in the first half of the cycle when estrogen is dominant than in the second half.
