Natural Micronized Progesterone 100,200 mg
FAIRGEST Tablets contains micronized progesterone, which is structurally and biologically identical to
progesterone of ovarian origin. Micronisation increases the bioavailability of progesterone. Progesterone is a
21-carbon hormone formed from steroid precursors in the ovary, testis, adrenal gland, placenta, and glial cells
in the central nervous system. Progesterone is present in highest concentrations in the ovarian corpus
luteum. Progesterone receptors are located in the uterus, central nervous system, mammary gland, and
pituitary gland. Progesterone synthesis is stimulated by LH, which primarily acts to regulate the conversion of
cholesterol to pregnenolone, a progesterone precursor.
