How Does Herbal Oestro Balance Help?
Herbal Oestro Balance includes potent herbs such as Red Clover and Wild Yam to help maintain a healthy hormonal balance. Isoflavones are oestrogen-like compounds that can help to modulate the effects of oestrogen produced by the body. Soy, Wild Yam and Red Clover, in particular, have high levels of isoflavones and can halve the incidence and severity of hot flushes, as well as help to relieve other symptoms such as irritability.
These have been combined with Pfaffia and Sage Leaf which are widely researched for their reputation to alleviate hormonal symptoms of PMS, perimenopause and menopause.
Plus with the energising nutrients in Schizandra and ginseng, our science-backed traditional herbal remedies come together to help provide support and relief.
Soy isoflavones and red clover: Isoflavones are oestrogen-like compounds that can help to modulate the effects of oestrogen produced by the body. Four trials have now shown that isoflavones, found in high levels in both soya and red clover, can halve the incidence and severity of hot flushes, as well as help to relieve other symptoms such as irritability.
Wild yam: The starting material in the manufacture of “the Pill”, the root and bulb of wild yam contain the chemical diosgenin, which can be made into various steroids (such as oestrogen and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)). As such, it is often used as a natural alternative to oestrogen therapy including low energy levels and sex drive. It has also been shown to help soothe menstrual cramps.
Sage leaf: Sage leaf contains diterpene bitters, volatile oil, flavonoids and rosmarinic acid. It has a tonic effect on the female reproductive system and is recommended for irregular menstruation and menstrual cramps. As a result of its oestrogenic effect, it has also been shown to be effective in alleviating the following symptoms of PMS and menopause, including anxiety, fatigue, night sweats, hot flushes and mood swings.
Pffafia: Pffafia (and also known as Brazilian ginseng, Suma and Paratudo) has been known to Amazon Indians for thousands of years and extensively studied by scientists – it is very popular with women going through PMS and menopause, to relieve symptoms of hormonal imbalance.
Schizandra Chinensis: an adaptogen that can fortify and strengthen the body, enhancing resistance to disease and stress.
Hops: contain natural plant oestrogens, in fact, scientists have now discovered that the hops plant may contain one of the most powerful phytoestrogens ever identified. This potent compound – known as 8-prenylnaringenin or 8-PN – effectively combats menopausal and PMS complaints and shows promise in protecting against bone loss and heart disease.
Alfalfa: a nutrient-dense food, rich in chlorophyll, along with vitamins (such as A, B6 and 12, C, D, E, K and P) and minerals (including magnesium, calcium, phosphorous and potassium). It also provides a rich source of isoflavones and essential enzymes. As such, and because it is a cooling, sweet, astringent legume, alfalfa has been used to relieve hot flushes and night sweats.
Siberian ginseng: a tonic herb, which can support health and well-being. As an adaptogen, it helps the body to perform at optimum levels and counter the ill-effects of stress.
Atriplex halimus: Also known as Mediterranean saltbush, Atriplex halimus is a nutritious plant, high in protein, as well as vitamins (C, A and D) and minerals (such as chromium). It’s the herb’s Chromium content that is thought to be particularly useful for treating menopausal symptoms. Chromium is involved with blood sugar balances, and it turns out that many symptoms associated with menopause are symptoms of blood sugar imbalance.
