So, what is progesterone?

Progesterone is a naturally occurring hormone that plays a critical role in the female reproductive system. This steroid hormone is primarily produced in the ovaries and helps to regulate the menstrual cycle and prepare the body for pregnancy. It also plays a key role in the development of the placenta during pregnancy. In addition to its reproductive functions, progesterone has been studied for its potential therapeutic benefits in a range of health conditions, including menopause, osteoporosis, and breast cancer. As a food ingredient, progesterone may be used in certain dietary supplements or functional foods, although its use in this context is relatively uncommon.
