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, store the product refrigerated, or in a cool dark place.
Natural vitamin E is more viscous when cold. To facilitate dispensing drops when storing refrigerated, 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.
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.
I love this stuff! It has been a life-saver for my mood and hormonal balance. I took a break from it for awhile and used a cream, but have come back to this formula. It's excellent.
It is a really good product.
I have been using this product for my menopause for the past 6 months, Progest-E is my life saver. No more mood swings, its calmed down my hot flushes and the product has made me feel myself again. I found my perfect amount which is just one dose a day. Highly recommend this product.
I am a woman who is several years into menopause and I have been using this product for many years. I use this product to help balance my hormones, mainly my progesterone levels which in turn help balance other hormones. I would only use this product if you have had your hormone levels tested first as not everyone would benefit from extra progesterone. That said, this product works well for me.
This is the best progesterone product that I have ever found. Interesting way in how you "consume" it. Great to be able to use a product that works so well in helping my hot flashes!! Can't go wrong here.
Product works well - my sleep and skin are improving.
Ok, I have been using this for almost 3 years now. I started off just w 3 drops a day, and it still helped w my hot flashes and depression! Now I'm basically @ 5 drops a day, unless more is needed. The reason I'm writing this review today is to tell ANYONE who has been using Dr Peats and you start getting all those nasties back- hot flashes, night sweats, irritability- BUY A NEW BOTTLE!!! I have never gone thru a whole bottle. A bottle usually lasts me 4-6 months then I need a new one. As soon as I get my new bottle I have INSTANT relief. Works like a charm all over again. So, if your feeling those flashes and start getting irritable for no reason, see how long you've had your bottle and replace it. It's still less expensive and more successful than any other product for me, even If I only get 4 mos out of a bottle! (I live in Phoenix, AZ. I'm sure that is why its potency goes down even that quick for me.) Also, write the date you get it on your bottle. I'm surprised they don't have an expiration date on them already. (Or use by...) REGARDLESS, THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING PRODUCT EVER!!!
LNH Response: It is best to keep refrigerated. Then it will stay potent for over a year.
@ 71, why am I still having hot flashes?! Progest-E solved THAT problem! Was also seeking help with low energy & libido. Medical testing found no answers. Progest-E helped with the libido. As is sometimes said: 2 outta 3 ain't bad!
