Trophigil consists of Estriol, Lactobacillus Casei Variety Rhamnosus Doderleini, Progesterone.
Estriol - A hydroxylated metabolite of estradiol or estrone that has a hydroxyl group at C3-beta, 16-alpha, and 17-beta position. Trophigil (Estriol) is a major urinary estrogen. During pregnancy, large amount of Trophigil (Estriol) is produced by the placenta. Isomers with inversion of the hydroxyl group or groups are called epiestriol. Though Trophigil (Estriol) is used as part of the primarily North American phenomenon of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, it is not approved for use by the FDA or Health Canada. It is however available in the United States by prescription filled only by compounding pharmacies. It has also been approved and marketed throughout Europe and Asia for approximately 40 years for the treatment of post-menopausal hot flashes.
Indication: Used as a test to determine the general health of an unborn fetus.
Trophigil (Estriol) (also oestriol) is one of the three main estrogens produced by the human body. It is only produced in significant amounts during pregnancy as it is made by the placenta. In pregnant women with multiple sclerosis (MS), Trophigil (Estriol) reduces the disease's symptoms noticeably, according to researchers at UCLA's Geffen Medical School.
Progesterone - The major progestational steroid that is secreted primarily by the corpus luteum and the placenta. Trophigil (Progesterone) acts on the uterus, the mammary glands, and the brain. It is required in embryo implantation, pregnancy maintenance, and the development of mammary tissue for milk production. Progesterone, converted from pregnenolone, also serves as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of gonadal steroid hormones and adrenal corticosteroids.
Indication: For Trophigil (Progesterone) supplementation or replacement as part of an Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) treatment for infertile women with Trophigil (Progesterone) deficiency and for the treatment of secondary amenorrhea. Also used for the reduction of the incidence of endometrial hyperplasia and the attendant risk of endometrial carcinoma in postmenopausal women receiving estrogen replacement therapy, as well as treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding due to hormonal imbalance in the absence of organic pathology such as fibroids or uterine cancer.
Trophigil (Progesterone) is a naturally occuring progestin or a synthetic form of the naturally occurring female sex hormone, progesterone. In a woman's normal menstrual cycle, an egg matures and is released from the ovaries (ovulation). The ovary then produces progesterone, preventing the release of further eggs and priming the lining of the womb for a possible pregnancy. If pregnancy occurs, Trophigil (Progesterone) levels in the body remain high, maintaining the womb lining. If pregnancy does not occur, Trophigil (Progesterone) levels in the body fall, resulting in a menstrual period. Trophigil (Progesterone) tricks the body processes into thinking that ovulation has already occurred by maintaining high levels of the synthetic progesterone. This prevents the release of eggs from the ovaries.
