PROGESTERONE deficiency symptoms include premenstrual discomfort, night sweats, hot flashes, and a loss of well being, even including depression.Women having higher progesterone is protective of breast cancer and decreases all types of cancer.
ESTRIOL virtually eliminates hot flashes, but also reductions in forgetfulness, loss of concentration, irritability, and heart palpitations occur. Migraine headaches drop significantly, as well as subjective improvements in skin and hair. Women with higher estriol have lower breast cancer risk, osteoporosis and cardiac events.
DHEA supplementation aids chronic inflammation, immune dysfunction, depression, rheumatoid arthritis, and lessens risk for certain cancers, excess body fat, cognitive decline, osteoporosis, and some complications of type II diabetes.
TESTOSTERONE concentrations in women begin to decline around the age of 30. They are produced about 1/10 the levels in men. It is well known that testosterone is used to enhance libido, weight loss and athletic performance, but low testosterone in women are predictive for heart disease in women who have had hysterectomies. Additionally, lack of this hormone can also promote breast cancer, much like progesterone’s protective effect on the uterus. In breast tissue testosterone reduces mammary epithelial estrogen receptor ERα (associated with cancer) and increases ERβ (beneficial) expression.
