Bioidentical Progesterone Oil | USP Grade

Bio-identical progesterone, vitamin E, organic extra virgin olive oil.
Kossma's progesterone oil is intentionally designed to amplify the advantages of progesterone through the synergistic inclusion of vitamin E & olive oil. Here's the science behind it: Vitamin E, being a fat-soluble vitamin, possesses antioxidant and estrogen-detoxifying properties. This helps in purging the body of surplus estrogen, coupled with progesterone's ability to also detoxify excess estrogen, this formulation ensures a reduction in excess estrogen in the body, leading to a stabilization and rise in natural progesterone levels. The addition of olive oil enhances the skin's absorption of this topical formula.

The typical dosage for progesterone oil applied topically is between 20-40 mgs daily. This is optional but we recommend starting with one dropper (drop) of progesterone 3mg and increasing your dose up to 20-40 mgs per day and then staying at 20-40 mgs per day for the duration of your schedule depending on how long you take progesterone. Administer progesterone oil topically to areas with thinner skin, such as the insides of the wrists, inner arms, and inner thighs. Rotate the application site each time for optimal absorption. Topical application only.
Each dropper/drop (one drop of liquid) of Kossma's progesterone oil contains 3mg of bio-identical progesterone.
For cyclic women (those who have a regular menstrual cycle), it's recommended to start bioidentical progesterone therapy in the second half of the menstrual cycle, after ovulation. This is often referred to as the luteal phase and usually begins around day 14 of a 28-day cycle. Women who have standard cycles, 27-30 days can start at day 14 (or after ovulation) and continue daily until your next menstrual cycle starts or 1-2 days before the new menstrual cycle starts. After the new cycle starts, stop the progesterone until the next luteal phase. Women with shorter periods, start at day 12 (or after ovulation) and stop when new menstrual cycle starts.
Natural progesterone levels rise after ovulation, so it's important to start progesterone after ovulation to follow the natural cycles of the body.
Unlike cyclic women, non-menstruating women don't have a menstrual cycle, so they may be prescribed a continuous dosage or a specific pattern that doesn't adhere to a menstrual cycle. Please see your health care provider for proper instructions based on your individual needs (breastfeeding women, pls follow instructions given by your healthcare provider)
For menopausal women, hormone levels don't fluctuate in the same way as they do during the menstrual cycle. Therefore, progesterone might be taken continuously or in a cyclical manner, depending on your individual needs.
Ray Peat extols the benefits of progesterone beyond its traditional association with pregnancy, emphasizing its broader physiological significance. Progesterone is deemed the most protective hormone produced by the body, crucial for brain and immune system health. It acts as a fundamental hormone for adaptation and resistance to stress, helping in the production of anti-stress hormones by the adrenal glands and reducing the need for cortisol, excessive levels of which can lead to various health issues. Moreover, progesterone has been found to alleviate anxiety, enhance memory, protect brain cells, and even prevent epileptic seizures. It improves respiratory functions, heart efficiency, skin aging, and bone health, and is beneficial for treating arthritis and immunological issues. When combined with vitamin E, it is absorbed efficiently and helps in regulating hormone production and thyroid function. Peat emphasizes that progesterone's role extends beyond reproductive health, being a crucial component for overall well-being.
This is my new favorite progesterone, and I've tried many brands. I LOVE IT! I let my sister use some, and she loves it too.
I rub a few drops onto my gums at night, and within an hour, I'm feeling warm and fuzzy and ready to drift off to sleep.
The taste is slightly bitter but not bad. I'm so glad it isn't flavored or scented. Doesn't have much of a smell at all, which I really appreciate.
I definitely DO NOT want a refund over a label typo. Luckily, I realized the dosage error myself and only used a few drops, but no big deal either way. I've taken 100 milligrams of progesterone before, and it was a very pleasant and relaxing experience for me. I noticed the Mayo Clinic website even recommends 200 to 400 milligrams orally, taken daily for 12 days per menstrual cycle for certain issues. So it's quite safe, but definitely do your own research. I highly recommend Dr. Ray Peat's articles.
Thank you, Stephanie, for all your hard work and amazing products. ♡
