A Powerful Formula for Menopause
Natural Support for Menopause Symptoms & Hot Flashes
This synergistic herbal formula supports the reproductive organs and their functions of women experiencing menopause, helping to relieve unpleasant menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes. Unlike other natural supplements with one ingredient isolated for one purpose, this natural formula contains a powerful blend of interactive ingredients which support both a primary organ or body system and also a related secondary organ or body system.
INDICATIONS MAY INCLUDE:
Hot flashes, night sweats, headaches, heart palpitations, vaginal atrophy, depression, anxiety, nervousness, sleep disturbances, and decreased libido.
CHASTE BERRY EXTRACT (Vitex agnus castus): The progestins in chaste tree berries have long been recognized as useful to treat conditions involving female reproduction. In early Greek and Roman medicine, they were used to stop hemorrhaging after childbirth. As early as the 16th century, chaste tree was accepted as part of medicine. Beginning in the 1930’s, German researchers have conducted laboratory and human studies that seem to document the potential usefulness of chaste tree berries in relieving menstrual and menopausal complaints. Chaste Berry suppresses the over-production of estrogen and is widely used to balance hormones. Many double-blind placebo-controlled studies have proven its effectiveness, for example, the Institute for Health Care and Science in Germany found that 52% of women taking this supplement experienced significant improvements in menstrual symptoms such as bloating, headaches and irritability. Chaste Tree also reduces estrogen levels while elevating progesterone levels, and has strong anti inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal effects which help the body to shrink fibroids.
RICE BRAN (aka Gamma Oryzanol): Rice bran was shown, in Japanese research, to be effective in relieving hot flashes and other symptoms of menopause. Researchers polled women suffering from hot flashes and found that 90% of the women found some form of relief after taking a rice bran oil supplement for 4–6 weeks.
BLACK COHOSH EXTRACT (Cimicifuga racemosa): Black Cohosh has been used by Native Americans for more than two hundred years, after they discovered the root of the plant helped relieve menstrual cramps and symptoms of menopause. These days it is still used for menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes/flushes, irritability, mood swings and sleep disturbances. It is also used for PMS, menstrual irregularities, and uterine spasms. Black cohosh extract is approved by the German Ministry of Health for the treatment of menopausal symptoms related to estrogen deficiency and has been used there since 1956 for relief of menopausal symptoms. A dozen studies or more conducted throughout the 1980s and 1990s confirm that the long-standing use of black cohosh for menopausal symptoms has scientific validity. For example, in a German study involving 629 women, black cohosh improved physical and psychological menopausal symptoms in more than 80% of the participants within 6-8 weeks. In a second study, 60 menopausal women were given black cohosh extract, conjugated estrogens, or diazepam (a leading anti-anxiety medication) for three months. Those who received black cohosh reported feeling significantly less depressed and anxious than those who received either estrogens or diazepam. In another study, 80 menopausal women were treated for 12 weeks with black cohosh extract, conjugated estrogens, or placebo. Black cohosh improved anxiety, menopause and vaginal symptoms. In addition, the number of hot flashes dropped from 5 to less than 1 average daily occurrences in the black cohosh group compared to those taking estrogen in whom hot flashes dropped from 5 to 3.5 daily occurrences.
WILD YAM ROOT (Dioscorea villosa): Widely used by Native Americans, Wild yam has a long history of giving women relief from hot flashes, insomnia, hot flashes, cramps, headaches, migraines, and vaginal dryness.
LICORICE ROOT (Glcyrrhiza uralensis): An extract of licorice root, glycyrrhetic acid, is a safe source of natural estrogen, as supported by numerous studies. The Chinese have successfully used licorice extracts for more than 3,000 years to treat menopausal disorders.
GINGER ROOT (Zingiber officinale): This herb increases the circulation in the pelvic area relieving pelvic engorgement and helps to increase the efficacy of the other herbs in the formula.
SAGE LEAF (Salvia officinalis): Sage Leaf is recommended in menopause to help reduce hot flushes and night sweats, also for digestion and menstruation problems. It has a relaxing and anti-spasmodic effect on the stomach and intestine muscles. Sage contains plant estrogens and can so be recommended to women who suffer from irregular and painful periods and also during menopause to reduce hot flushes. Sage Leaf contains properties which act on the sudoriferours glands and help reduce sweat formation which can be excessive during menopause. It is well documented that Sage Leaf helps to reduce menopausal sweats. In one study, excessive sweating was induced by pilocarpine. The sweating was reduced when participants were given an aqueous extract of fresh Sage Leaf.
1. Excessive sweat induced by pilocarpine was inhibited by dialysate of an aqueous extract of fresh sage (Monographs on the Medicinal Uses of Plant Drugs, Fascicules 1 and 2 (1996) Exeter: European Scientific Cooperative on Phytotherapy.
