Menopause is a natural process that moves women out of their childbearing years. The ovaries go into retirement, so to speak, leaving progesterone production to the adrenal glands mainly. Many people live such stressful lives that the adrenals are already overworked. Add to that the proliferation of xenoestrogens from plastics and other toxins in the environment and it is easy to see why many women feel out of balance and experience some level of discomfort or trouble sleeping.
Transitions™ Herbs for Menopause can help make the change smoother by reducing hot flashes, mood swings and other manifestations of hormone imbalance.
It contains several herbs used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM): Burdock root and white peony are blood purifiers and rehmannia is a kidney tonic. All of which, according to TCM, can address hormonal imbalances. Motherwort is a heart tonic that helps balance mood. Dong quai, also known as female ginseng, is effective for alleviating many symptoms of menopause like hot flashes and vaginal dryness. Poria cocos is used in TCM as a heart tonic that also supports a positive mood.
Transitions also contains herbs from the western medical tradition as well. Eleuthero, formerly known as Siberian ginseng, is an adaptogen that supports all five major organ systems and is especially beneficial to the adrenals. Black cohosh can be effective for night sweats and hot flashes as well as nervousness and irritability. Chaste tree, also called vitex, supports healthy levels of estrogen and progesterone. Kudzu is a source of isoflavones (flavonoid phytoestrogens) andwild yam contains diosgenin (a steroid saponin related to human sex hormones) both of which support hormone balance.
Two other ingredients in Transitions are the bioflavonoid hesperidin, which supports the circulatory system and venous integrity as well as bone density, and gamma oryzanol, an antioxidant that helps to maintain healthy cholesterol levels and has been shown to offer relief of menopausal symptoms.
