How Do You Regulate Your Hormones?
Femarin contains a unique blend of botanicals formulated to provide targeted support for the comfortable and balanced menopausal transition. The ingredients included in this formula combat a variety of health complications often found during this transitionary period. The foundation of these ingredients promotes overall wellness for women in this season of life, including complications such as hot flashes, night sweats and night awakenings, along with providing benefits for many bodily systems. Femarin contains a synergistic blend of gamma oryzanol, black cohosh root extract, Dong quai, licorice root and trans-resveratrol in proper doses to promote female hormonal balance before and during the menopause stage.
The menopausal stage typically occurs during a woman’s midlife, during the late 40s or early 50s, signaling the end of the fertile phase. For many women, the strong disruption in the menstrual cycle can have a strong effect, significantly disrupting daily activities and sense of well-being. Femarin contains key ingredients that have been shown to help support a woman’s unique needs during this period. Femarin particularly addresses hormonal balance, maintains normal inflammatory balance and provides antioxidant support, along with cardiovascular and bone support for a full availability of protection and menopausal symptom relief.
Black Cohosh Root Extract
Black cohosh root extract has been studied particularly for its hormone balancing benefits during peri-menopause and menopause. It has been used historically for 40 years in Europe for premenstrual discomfort, painful menstruation and menopausal symptoms. Black cohosh root contains components, like isoglavones and cimicifugoside, which have been shown to balance hormones. Studies have shown that black cohosh has significantly reduced menopause-related symptoms when compared to the placebo. This botanical shows reports of promoting a sense of calmness and emotional wellbeing, along with a positive mental outlook. It also is beneficial to vaginal superficial cells and bone health without causing effects on the endometrium or follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels. Black cohosh root extract also includes benefits to selective estrogen receptor modulation, serotonergic pathways, antioxidant activity or inflammatory pathways.
Resveratrol is found in grapes and red wine and has shown to have an effect on free radical scavenging and antioxidant properties in a variety of tissues. Resveratrol has a similar structure to estrogen, providing a range of supportive activities including hormonal balance and maintaining normal inflammatory balance. Resveratrol has also been shown to support bone health by regulating the metabolism of bone cells and modulating bone turnover. Additionally, resveratrol supports cardiovascular health by protecting lipids from peroxidative degradation and prevents the uptake of oxidized LDLs in the vascular wall. Supplementation with this element was found to significantly reduce whole-body oxidative stress and also decreased the levels of plasma tumor necrosis factor-alpha, a key inflammatory marker.
Licorice Root Extract
Licorice root is a botanical used medicinally for thousands of years. The active components of licorice root include glycyrrhizin and isoflavones. Licorice root’s isoflavones have been shown to exert a balancing effect on estrogen levels. When estrogen levels are too high, it will inhibit estrogen action, and when levels become too low, it will potentiate estrogen action. Studies have shown that glycyrrhizin can bind to both estrogen and androgen receptors, buffering estrogen dominance. In addition, licorice has also been shown to support healthy bone mineral density in postmenopausal women and to inhibit serotonin re-uptake, which is essential for a positive mental outlook.
Gamma oryzanol (ferulic acid) is a natural compound extracted from rice bran oil. This compound has been historically effective in treating those suffering from hot flashes. Not only this, but gamma oryzanol has been studied to reduce the symptoms of women experiencing many menopausal symptoms. In addition to the improvement in physical ailments, gamma oryzanol has also been shown to be effective in maintaining healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Dong quai (Angelica sinesis) is a native herb to China and Korea and is known to be the women’s herb due to its unique healing properties. This herb reduces painful menstruation, supports a regular and healthy menstrual cycle and reduces menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes. The dried roots of Dong quai contain coumarins, flavonoids and essential oils, acting as active phytoestrogen constituents. Dong quai works best in harmony with other botanicals to support menstrual regularity and help nourish dry and thin vaginal tissues from menopause.
