NatPro progesterone cream contains only vegetable substances. No animal has suffered or will ever suffer because of it's production or use. NatPro does not contain any toxic substances.

The effects of estrogen are harmful when unopposed. The addition of natural progesterone provides balance to estrogen. Estrogen promotes cell proliferation, and is a leading cause of breast cancer when not balanced by progesterone. Estrogen causes fat cells to grow - fat cells make more estrogen... and the estrogen makes more fat cells! See where I'm going? So, the more body fat someone has, the more estrogen dominant that person becomes. This contributes to many diseases...
