Progesto-Mend is a combination of phytoprogesterones, progestogenic adaptogens and other herbs that support optimal progesterone function by maintaining the health of progesterone producing glands and by supporting the healthy function of progesterone responsive tissues.
Phytoprogesterones (phytosterols with progesterone-like activity) are provided by Chasteberry and Dioscorea villosa, which are able to support the health of progesterone responsive tissues without being chemically converted into progesterone.
The progestogenic herbs, Rehmannia, Bupleurum, and Coleus forskohlii all belong to a class of adaptogens that support the proper progesterone producing function of the adrenal glands in both genders. Herbs which mimic other actions of progesterone (including healthy neurological function) complement the phytoprogesterones and progestogenic herbs. This formulation offers support of healthy progesterone function.
