A Natural Supplement for Menstrual Cycle Support and Hormonal Health
Our natural supplement for menstrual cycle support is designed to help regulate menstruation through its unique formulation of natural standardized herbs including chaste berry extract, peony (with the active compound paeonolide) and licorice root extract (active component glycyrrhizin).
•Chaste Berry Extract for Menstrual Health
Vitex agnus castus, also known as chaste berry, has widely been used for an array of complaints associated with menstruation. Chaste berry has a long history of providing aggressive support for healthy menstrual cycles. High levels of prolactin are known to impede cycle regularity, and chaste berry is excellent for mediating high levels of prolactin. In Germany, chaste berry extract is a popular supplement for regular menstrual cycle maintenance.
Chaste berry has been approved by the German Commission E Monograph for the use of irregularities of the menstrual cycle, premenstrual complaints, and mastodynia. In a study done with 2,447 women with various menstrual complaints (1,016 PMS, 734 corpus luteal insufficiencies, 320 uterine myomas, and 167 menopausaul symptoms) after an average of 5 months vitex supplementation, the efficacy was rated at 90 percent with 31 percent of women reporting absence of previous complaints.
•Peony and Paeonolide for Menstrual Cycle Support
Peony is a herb with a traditional history, historically used by Native Amreicans. Peony contains different active compounds, one of which is paeonolide. Paeonolide has been found to have anti-inflammatory properties, and may be useful in menstrual cramping. Peony also helps to support normal DHEA, prolactin, and progesterone levels. Because peony helps balance healthy progesterone secretion, peony ultimately provides value to ongoing estrogen-related health.
•Licorice Root for Menstrual Health
The major active component in licorice root is glycyrrhizin. Glycyrrhizin has estrogenic and anti-estrogenic capabilities. Licorice root plays a role in supporting the adrenal glands. By helping regulate the adrenal glands, licorice root extract helps to alleviate menstrual symptoms.
