Progesterone also has potent antihypertensive properties that can help bring down blood pressure to healthy levels. Numerous clinical trials support this beneficial effect of progesterone:
1. In postmenopausal women with high blood pressure, progesterone supplementation lowers blood pressure by 6 to 7 mm Hg. [43-44]
2. Progesterone exerts its antihypertensive effect by reducing mean arterial pressure. 
3. In postmenopausal women, the use of progesterone supplements is associated with lower blood pressure. 
4. Progesterone lowers blood pressure by promoting sodium loss and excretion of renin (a substance that increases blood pressure).
