Menopause & PMS
During the menopause, the loss of oestrogen (female sex hormone) causes ovulation to stop and menstrual bleeding to stop. This process takes several years, is slow and ultimately leads to infertility.
The disconforts associated with menopause can include:
- Mood swings
- Vaginal dryness
- Decreased sex desire (libido)
- Hot flashes
- Sleep disorders
- Frequent headaches
- Gaining weight for no reason
- Blood pressure fluctuations, high blood pressure
- Indigestion: heartburn, gallstones, constipation
To prevent this, a number of herbal extracts can help, the main active ingredients of which are phyt Numerous studies report on the menopausal symptom-relieving properties of the phytoestrogens in these herbs and studies have been conducted which confirm that the three together are the most effective. We offer all 3 herbs in a 3 in 1 formula.
Phytoestrogens are compounds found in nature that have a similar structure to oestrogen. There are many such phytoestrogens (flavonoids, isoflavonoids, lignans, ginsenoids, etc.) Phytoestrogens can have estrogen-supporting or anti-estrogenic effects. (However, not all phytoestrogenic herbs will be good for both high and low estrogen levels).
Maca herb extract contains active ingredients (called sterols) that act on the hypothalamus and pituitary gland in our brain. These sterols work through the pituitary gland to improve uterine and reproductive function, as well as thyroid and pancreatic function.
Studies have shown that the herb Maca can help relieve pre-menopause and post-menopause symptoms.
