progesterone creams for men

11.4: web.cook/progesterone/fewest ingredients:
. I need a progesterone cream for men;
many of the creams for women come added with
herbs meant to enhance estrogen function.
progesterone is a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor,
that lowers DHT (dihydrotestosterone) levels;
it may also counteract the growing xenoestrogens problem
(although estrogen dominance is a controversial idea).

"John R. Lee, MD, attributes the over exposure to estrogen
as a primary culprit of prostate enlargement and prostate cancer."
"Progesterone is necessary to balance the
proliferative effects that estrogen has on prostate cells.
Using a progesterone supplement can help reduce prostate size
and lessen symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH)."
"progesterone may decrease sperm production"
. older men apply 8 - 12 mg daily;
skipping one day a week [Larry Frieders].

Dr.Mercola suggests applying hormone creams
 to mucous membranes not skin;
for women that means the labials or vagina;
and for men the rectum if you don't have a foreskin.

. progesterone may raise SHBG levels
that may bind up more free testosterone,
but to counteract that I use nettle extract.

. could progesterone be converted to estrogen?
I use cruciferous vegetables for Diindolylmethane (DIM)
-- preferring broccoli but sometimes cabbage;
raw, organic, in a vitamixer with lecithin.

"DIM promotes beneficial estrogen metabolism"
by a "75% increase in production of 2-hydroxyestrone
and a 50% decrease in 16-hydroxyestrone."
"Case-control studies have documented that
low levels of 2-hydroxy metabolites are associated with
various types of cancers in both men and women." [prohormone db].

. the 2-hydroxy estrogen partially
blocks the effects of estrogen on the system;
this is how broccoli can increase testosterone
[raise-your-testosterone.com].

. progesterone can increase thyroid function.

"Inhibition of Testosterone Conversion to Dihydrotestosterone
in Men Treated Percutaneously by Progesterone"
[J Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, 1974].

$35 Supplement Spot`Prostate Cream (3mg progesterone)

. also includes DHEA, plant sterols esters,
tocopheryl acetate, TEA, vitis vinifera(grape seed) extract
evening primrose oil, chamomile recutita flower extract
optiphen Plus (paraben-free preservative);
--
has DHEA added?
I prefer to use progesterone at night,
and DHEA in the morning, so I wouldn't mix them.

progesterone creams with minimal ingredients:

. these are often pumps giving women's doses;
I pump these into a large syringe
where I have easy access to smaller doses.
. there is one formula that comes with just mct oil
but you have to shake that one,
and I'm not sure it's dosed consistently.

BonVida™ Nature's Balance Progesterone Cream (in a jar):
website says:
Deionized water, caprilic/capric triglycerides (coconut oil),
vegetable glycerine, stearic acid, mixed tocopherols (vit E),
emulsifying wax NF, progesterone, potassium sorbate;
however, 
I purchased this and the bottle says:
Deionized water, coconut oil, Ceteryl olivate,
Sorbitan olivate(from olive oil), stearic acid (from palm oil)
Citric acid(from citrus), vegetable glycerine,
progesterone, Populus tremuloides(from pine bark).
[ Populus tremuloides? they may mean Aspen bark extract
which is an organic preservative]
--
. comes with a book:
"You're Not Losing Your MIND, You're Losing Your HORMONES!"
dose:
the jar says to use 1/8 to 1/4 tsp twice a day (for women);
Contains 1,000 mg of bioidentical progesterone per 2.1 oz;
so, for men who want 8mg progesterone;
8mg/1000mg = x tsp/2.1oz = x tsp/12.6tsp;
8*12.6 tsp/1000 = 0.1008 tsp; a bit less than 1/8 tsp.

Natpro 2g progesterone cream:
. 60 grams (2 oz) of cream;
concentration of 3.33% progesterone
or 33.33 milligrams per gram

controversies about Progestelle explained:

Progestelle Customer Rep says:
I used Peter Eckhart, MD as a pen name
for Renwin Yee, MD
because I wanted to fit into American Society.
Please see the video below on why a pen name was used:
[ José Vs. Joe: Who Gets A Job?]
Renwin Yee, MD graduated from Cornell University
with a BS Electrical Engineering in 1982.
He also graduated from University of Hawaii's
John A Burns School of Medicine in 1988 with a MD.
I am sorry you feel offended by the use of a pen name.
I apologize for the confusion.
[ see his pen name outed here.]
In the public arena,
sometimes it is customary for a pen name to be used.
For instance, "Mark Twain" was the pen name for
Samuel Langhorne Clemens.
"Lewis Carroll" who wrote "Alice in Wonderland"
was the pen name for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson.
My mistake was that people require
greater transparency for physicians.
I apologize for my mistake
and hope to remedy that here.
You may web search "Renwin Yee, MD".
You may also contact the respective schools for confirmation.
