Progesterone is known as our calming, mood, sleep, libido and bone-enhancing hormone. What a lot of men also don’t realize is Progesterone functions as a precursor in our body to produce Testosterone while also acting as a balance to decrease estrogen. As men age the level of progesterone starts to decrease. Natural production by the testes and adrenals in men starts to decrease with aging and can lead to an imbalance, not only of progesterone, but also lead to decreased testosterone and an increase of estrogen. Balance between Testosterone, Progesterone and male Estrogen is the key to being healthy.
