  • Symptom Free Menopausal Transition

    Menopause is the cessation of female menstruation that typically occurs around the age of 51. It is estimated that 6,000 women reach menopause every day in the United States1. This stage in a woman's life brings hormonal changes that often cause uncomfortable symptoms that can disrupt daily living. Many menopausal symptoms are a result of insufficient estrogen and/or progesterone levels in the body.

    Common symptoms that occur during menopause include:

    • Hot flashes

    • Abnormal periods

    • Vaginal dryness

    • Night sweats

    • Bladder infections

    • Sleeping disturbances

    • Mood changes

    • Weight gain

    Conventional treatment for menopausal symptoms usually includes Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), where either estrogen alone or in combination with progesterone is prescribed. Although this therapy may provide short-term relief, there have been long-term side effects associated with using these hormones.

    The following have been associated with using Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT):

    • Increased Cancer Risk (Endometrial, Breast)

    • Deep Vein Thrombosis

    • Irritability and Other Mood Changes

    • Vaginal Bleeding

    • Bloating and Weight Gain

    The Fem-Support Difference

    Fem-Support contains powerful, effective ingredients that provide natural sources of phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens are plant derived compounds that support the body’s ability to balance its own hormones. This can provide safe and natural relief from menopausal symptoms.

    Gamma Oryzanol

    Gamma Oryzanol is extracted from rice bran oil and contains ferulic acid. It possesses anti-oxidant potential and is extremely effective at reducing hot flashes. In one study, 40 women who used 300 mg of gamma oryzanol per day over 4-8 weeks saw an 85% reduction in their menopausal symptoms5. In addition to menopause support, gamma oryzanol also helps promote healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

    Black Cohosh

    Black Cohosh has been used since the 1950s as a safe and effective treatment for PMS, menstrual disorders and menopausal symptoms. One randomized, double-blind trial lasting 24 weeks tested Black Cohosh’s effectiveness using a daily dose of either 39 mg or 127.3 mg7. There were 116 women in the study and the results showed outstanding efficacy at both the lower dose and higher dose of Black Cohosh, as a majority of participants in each group reported menopause symptom relief (70% and 72% respectively). No adverse effects were reported.

    Dong Quai

    Dong Quai is an herb that provides many pharmacological benefits. It is most known for its support during menopause, as many generations of women have been utilizing it for relief from symptoms such as hot flashes, menstrual pain, chills, excessive sweating, skin flushing and its ability to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Dong Quai has also been shown to help lower blood pressure, act as a blood platelet inhibitor and antispasmodic, and help improve dysmenorrhea.

    Licorice Root

    Licorice has been used for thousands of years and has been shown to help balance estrogen levels in the body. It acts like an adaptogen in regard to estrogen, meaning if estrogen levels are abnormally low, it can help raise them and if estrogen levels are excessively high, it can help lower them. Other benefits of licorice include increasing the body’s ability to handle stress, increasing serotonin re-uptake which can lead to improved mood9, and supporting bone mineral density in postmenopausal women10.

    trans-Resveratrol

    Resveratrol possesses potent antioxidant properties that can protect the body at the cellular level by combating free radical damage. It is derived from the skins of grapes and red wine and is unique because it provides hormone balancing and inflammatory balancing effects within the body11-14. In addition, Resveratrol can enhance bone health by modulating bone turnover15.
