(NaturalNews) A source of great frustration for many people, insomnia is a fairly common occurrence that prevents individuals from sleeping. It can manifest in a variety of ways, including the inability to initially fall asleep and repeatedly waking up in the middle of the night. When not treated, insomnia can affect the health and productivity of an individual, and if left alone for too long, it can cause serious health problems. Many women that are undergoing premenopause or menopause complain of insomnia, which is one of many items on a list of symptoms associated with these phases that cause the body to change in major ways (understandably throwing off several of their usually regular systems). Because sleeping aids can become addictive and cause other side effects, many women who suffer from insomnia seek out natural remedies, and some studies have shown that the intake of the hormone progesterone can relieve the sleepless nights.

A steroid hormone, Progesterone is produced in the ovaries, adrenal glands, and placenta of human beings. An important part of the female reproductive system, this hormone plays a major role in the conception, development, and birth of a child. Because the levels of progesterone are so closely tied to the cycle of a woman's reproductive organs, premenopause and menopause naturally leave its levels highly unbalanced, which can cause many side effects through its lack of interaction with other parts of the body.

Progesterone, as discovered by German researchers, shares a close relationship with GABA, which is a neuro-chemical within the brain. GABA calms the nervous system, allowing people to clear their minds and go to sleep. Without the stimulation of GABA it may be difficult for an individual to get rest. When supplements of progesterone are given, researchers have found that the brain waves slow down - similar to the way in which they behave when exposed to tranquilizers - allowing women to finally sleep.

To combat the insomnia experienced by so many premenopausal and menopausal women, researchers recommend the use of natural progesterone creams, which provide the progesterone needed to balance the body's hormones without any of the side effects that drug-based products supply (though women who utilize too much of the cream will experience drowsiness). This cream has proven effective for many of the women that have used it and can help others overcome the frustrations that insomnia can cause by allowing them to get the sleep they need.

Insomnia in women can be attributed to many other factors, especially when individuals are undergoing the drastic changes that are taking place within their bodies during premenopause and menopause. However, the use of progesterone cream is a natural, safe way to combat insomnia and achieve a more optimal level of health.
