Bellissima! Jason Natural Lotion Helps Fight PMS

I was recently introduced to a natural skin care line called Jason Natural. After reading about them and their approach to healing, I stumbled across a great product that seems to be getting rave reviews from its plenitude of users.

This amazing feminine, Wild Yam 7½ % Hand & Body Lotion ($9) contains progesterone, herbs, botanical and minerals to help relieve stress, stabilize mood swings and balance out your hormones. Where has this product been hiding?!

It also contains vitamin E, Aloe Vera and its star ingredient, wild yam which has a striking similarity to progesterone (needed for hormonal balance during the few days before menstruation begins).

It helps calm all of the symptoms associated with PMS (irritability, fatigue, cramps and water retention) and is great for gallbladder disorders, kidney stones and menopause. The cream is perfectly safe for daily use and is especially effective for soothing dry hands, knees and elbows. What do you think? Is it worth a try?

If you really want to get rid of PMS symptoms (mood swings, bloating, cramps, sore boobs) you need to try a product called Pro-Gest. It's not cheap ($26 or so) but boy does it work! I have been using it for over 1 year and I can't even tell when my period is coming! It's a natural progesterone cream from a company called emerita. It is designed for ladies who are going through menopause or are about to. But don't let that fool you. All of us ladies are low in progesterone when we have our periods! Hence the symptoms. Give it a try for a month and you will be one happy camper! Good Luck ladies!

Uhm. Considering that PMS is basically just a made up psychological "that time of the month" sickness, I'm sure it won't work. That is, the website itself says it won't work. My favorite psychological study on PMS went a little something like this; A group of men and women were all put in a small laboratory room, the researchers only told people that they would ask them some survey type questions, the motive wasn't given. The levels for heartrate, stress levels and all sorts of other measurements were the exact same between all of them. Then, the researchers told the same group of men and women, the next day or something, that the survey was geared towards PMS. It was only then that the women's ratings either totally spiked or plummeted and the men's still stayed the same. Here's the kicker, some of the women in the study were on their periods, and some weren't. It's only when the female brain buys into the PMS BS that we feel the "symptoms" of fatigue and irritability. It's basically like saying everybody with a broken leg has symptoms of fatigue and irritability. Might as well tell them they have PMS too. Haha yeah, this product is completely idiocy. But I'm sure it smells quite nice! -JR

it says that it contains botanicals and herbs to reduce stress and symptoms. hasn't lavender been known for its calming effects? perhaps it doesn't do anything hormonally, but maybe the scent is enough to calm you down. and besides, their products are so good that I still use them even if they don't reduce my PMS.

After getting progesterone injections for three years or so and gaining 30 lbs, no way am I interested in this. Even if it doesn't work, I had too many side effects from the shots to want to ever touch the stuff again.

My doctor prescribed me Progesterone to induce menstration after I stopped having periods for about a year. This is a strong hormone and I think others should be responsible when using beauty products that contain Progesterone.

At the Jason Natural website under the section "Why not substitute Mexican wild yam for the benefits of natural progesterone?", they basically say that their own product doesn't work: "Wild Yams "do not" contain progesterone. Some yams do contain a sapogenin called diosgenin which was, at one time, thought to be converted by the body to progesterone, but that has not been substantiated. The herb can be applied to the skin but purchasers are advised to be wary of any yam cream offered as a progesterone cream unless the true contents are labeled United States Pharmacopia (USP) Progesterone."

Wild yams contain diosgenin which can be converted to progesterone in a laboratory. Our bodies cannot convert diosgenin into progesterone, DHEA, or any other sex hormone. We simply lack the capability. Additionally, wild yams do not contain any natural progesterone that your body could use. Just because a company claims a product does something does not mean we should accept it as fact (as it has been presented here).
