Women should take natural, or plant-based, hormones which duplicate those produced in the body, he says: Prempro is derived from the urine of pregnant mares. In his book Lee includes a list of progesterone creams, which are absorbed through the skin in greater concentrations than a pill that must pass through the digestive tract. He says he receives no payments from manufacturers of the creams and he independently tests potency.
