If the weather is hot where you live, there is no need to worry about Progest E being affected by the heat during the shipping process. Progest E is very stable. Upon receipt, though it is not required, it is recommended to refrigerate the Progest E for the very best storage conditions, which will preserve its shelf life of 2 years. It is important to store Progest E out of direct light, which prevents product degradation.
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.

- 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.

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. 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

- 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.
I think it helps a bit. Have been taking it for years. Thank you!

Progest-E helps to balance my hormones and reduce hot flashes
My holistic physician recommends I take six drops of Progest-E every night before going to bed. His advice never includes Rx medicines, only food supplements, and I'm in great shape at age 86.
Excellent product. Have reordered it many times. Works great on menopause symptoms, such as sleep and hot flashes.
I think my bones would be crumbling by now if it weren't for Progest e. I had radiation and chemo 19 years ago. It destroyed my bones. Aged them 50 years immediately.
This product has been my savior with my menopause symptoms. I have been in menopause fully for 2 years and have been using this amazing supplement. I have no hot flashes, skin issues, or any of the detrimental feminine sexuality effects of menopause since I started using this. Highly recommend!
