Dr. Peat's Progest E Replenishing Oil Complex (natural progesterone oil) from Kenogen is natural bioidentical progesterone derived from wild yam preserved in vitamin E oil. Progest E continues to be our number #1 best seller.
The natural progesterone in Dr. Peat’s Progest-E Complex is USP.
Our Progest E Oil is kept refrigerated at all times. We purchase a new batch from the manufacturer every 2 weeks, so you are always assured the freshest Progest E Oil possible.
Some people experience the taste of this product to be a little bitter, or strange tasting. This is natural. This product is preserved with natural vitamin E.
Dr. Peat's Progest-E Complex supports the following:
- Hot Flashes
- Menstrual pain and PMS symptoms
- Ovarian cysts
- Fibrocystic breasts
- Toxic effects of estrogen
- Supports full spectrum issues related to estrogen imbalance
- In this 10% solution of Progest-E Complex, one small drop contains about 3.5 milligrams of progesterone
- The size of the drops will vary depending on several factors for example, the amount of pressure applied squeezing the bottle, and the temperature of the solution.
- Our standard reference “small drop” is a 30-40 mg drop. There are approximately 970 drops of that size in a 34 ml bottle, each containing 3.5 mgs of progesterone.
- A 60 mg drop contains 6 mg and is probably a more common minimum amount to use. An unpopped kernel of popcorn looks the same size as a 60 mg drop of Progest-E and can be used as a reference for people who don’t have a scale for weighing small drops. There are approximately 560 drops weighing 60 mg in each 34 ml bottle.
- We keep our inventory refrigerated at all times. And it is replenished every few weeks, so we have only the freshest Progest-E in stock at all times!

Dispensing and Storage Tips:
Prolonged exposure to higher temperatures and natural light is known to reduce the shelf life of natural vitamin E. To get the greatest benefit from the natural vitamin E in Progest-E, keep the product refrigerated, or in a cool dark place.
Natural vitamin E is more viscous when cold. To facilitate dispensing drops when you are down towards the end of the bottle, use the following procedure: With the cap on, put your bottle of Progest-E upside down in a a juice glass in the fridge. Remove the glass containing the bottle of Progest-E from the fridge approximately 20-30 minutes before use. This allows the solution to get to room temperature and makes dispensing drops easier. Storing the bottle upside down also ensures that the solution is always in the dropper tip ready for use. Note: Do not store upside down when the bottle is full because the liquid will dispense too quickly. Store right side up until it becomes difficult to squeeze out liquid from the bottle.
Is Progest-E micronized?
The particle size definitely makes a difference—the smaller the better! Tests have shown micronized progesterone to have significantly higher absorption than standard milled progesterone. In the US the standard milled has an average particle size of approximately 45 microns, micronized progesterone is less than 15 microns. However, for progesterone containing products, it is the formula and its inherent stability (or lack of it) which will determine the benefits available to users of the product. Due to its unique formulation, Progest-E has a functional progesterone particle size over a thousand times smaller than micronized progesterone, in a biologically pure and highly stable formula.
What about the Soy in Progest E?
The vitamin E in the Progest-E Complex is derived from NON-GMO soy. There are several compounds found in soybeans which are identified as plant estrogens—the isoflavones. The isoflavones are attached to the proteins in the plant and are found in foods which use the whole soybean such as tofu, and soybean meal. These directly estrogenic compounds do not occur in the oily fractions of the plant, for example in the soybean oil and vitamin E. Nonetheless, we believe that soybean oil should not be in the diet and is indirectly estrogenic because of the high PUFA content. Low grades of vitamin E (even vitamin Es often used to make dietary supplements) contain varying amounts of soybean oil as a diluent. In contrast, the vitamin E used in Progest-E is of the highest quality and purification level and it does not contain soybean oil. People with soy allergies should have no problem with this product.
The vitamin E in the Progest-E Complex is derived from soy, yet many people with soy allergies have no problem with Progest-E because often an allergic reaction is a response to soy proteins.
There are no proteins in the oily fractions of the plant (such as vitamin E), which is a highly purified distillate. If you have a soy allergy, it is best to first test on a small area of the skin (ex: ankle).
Source of Vitamin E in Progest E:
The process of extracting vitamin E from soybeans is designed so that the vitamin E will not be oxidized or degraded during manufacturing, and this is verified by analysis at the end of each extraction.
There are a few other plants being used to make “vitamin E” products, but the products being produced from those sources are low grade varieties of vitamin E with various contaminants including a high PUFA content. They also carry a greater risk of pesticide contamination.
There are several undesirable substances found in whole soybeans, but they are all eliminated during the extraction of vitamin E. This cannot be said of the other plant-sourced vitamin Es on the market, and therefore we believe the soy-derived vitamin E remains the best and healthiest plant-sourced vitamin E on the market today.

Progesterone by Dr. Raymond Peat
Dr. Peat's Progest E Complex contains the following:
- Supplement Facts: Serving Size: 3 small drops, containing 3.5 progesterone in each drop, approximately 970 drops per bottle
- Natural d-alpha tocopherol &/or mixed tocopherols (vitamin E) 4-22 mg per drop; 12-66 mg per serving
- Natural progesterone derived from wild yam 3 mg per drop; 9 mg per serving
- Other Ingredients: Vegetable triglycerides (plant-based, sourced from either olive or coconut)
The progesterone in Dr. Peat`s Progest-E Complex is USP.
Additional Information: Normally, the body produces 10 to 20 milligrams of progesterone per day on its own. Though many factors can cause low levels. A quantity of 3 or 4 drops usually brings the blood levels up to the normal range, but this dose can be repeated several times during the day if needed. For general purposes, it is effective to take progesterone dissolved in vitamin E orally into the mouth, or by rubbing it into the gums. The Progest E Oil can be applied directly to the skin, for skin issues or beauty, and can be helpful for areas affected by sun, and conditions such as physical pain, arthritis, osteoporosis, tendinitis, bursitis, varicose veins, etc. It can also be used for vaginal dryness. To speed up assimilation and to make application easier when applied externally, add a few drops of olive oil or coconut oil to the area then rub Progest-E Oil Complex into and around the affected area.
It is best to keep this product refrigerated to keep fresh. Though, it is perfectly fine to have it outside at room temperature for hours or can be stored up to a year if kept in the dark between 60 - 65 degrees Just keep away from extreme heat, sunshine, or direct light.
Consistently good and helpful product. Highly recommend it.
I had no improvement from external oils so tried this. It is a quality product and I have experienced a real calming effect from it. It takes time. Use it for weeks before making a decision. Thank you!
Naturopath md recommended for use no longer on pill and works
My holistic doctor recommended this product which I have been taking for six or more years. Not sure of specific impact, but my health is good at 83.
I find this product to be helpful for menopause and post hysterectomy. A pea-sized glob by mouth, on the gums, before bed each night does the trick! I've been using it for many years, now and will keep using it. Long Natural Health was good to send me a replacement order right away, when an order was lost in the mail. They are a trustworthy source for this much appreciated product.
Wonderful product even in my mid 70's. I've been taking this for several years after recommendation from naturopath.
The order went well. I am using as directed and so far believe I have seen positive effects. Will know more by the time I finish the bottle. It is long lasting. The taste isn't bad. If refrigerated, as directed, it takes a few minutes to warm enough to use, but easy to do. It sticks to your teeth and gums for a short period but that is a minor thing. I will likely order it again. Thanks!
This product is too LOW DOSE PER DROP! Its horrible! I used 8 drops (even more than reccomended as “high” dose to start, and I had horrible itching, horrible heat and hot flashes and terrible insomnia. Plus this has SOY! What a waste of money and this company doesnt even refund you!! Dont waste your money!!
LNH Response: Nearly daily we receive very positive reviews on this product, as we have overwhelmingly for 25 years. Every now and then (as with every product) someone has a reaction or perhaps used it improperly. We always recommend people test their hormone levels before and during using such a product as this. We also suggest when using all new products to test it slowly at first in case for some reason your individual body does not like it. Concerning the soy: the vitamin E is derived from soy, though there are no soy proteins in this product and there really should be no concern about the vitamin E coming from soy. As far as the dose, it is recommended to begin on a high dose after an initial test. In this review it says '8 drops were taken and this was more than the suggested dose'. Though the directions state the suggested dosage is actually to take 3 drops 5 x per day for the first 10 days orally. We suggest to be successful in balancing hormones that you work with a doctor directly and not just experiment without proper knowledge. Most 'reactions' are simply the body adjusting and there are options of how to work with the product to be successful. Though our stated policy is not to give refunds, in this case we have given a refund.
This is the only progesterone product that has the highest natural level in their product. Kind of inconvenient to keep it in the frig but it helps protect the potency of the product.
