The herbs and nutrients in this formula are included in small amounts because of the extra effectiveness obtained from their synergistic values.
Agnus castus is also well known as chaste berry. It has been added because it has the effect of stimulating and normalising the functioning of the pituitary gland, thus helping to increase the ratio of progesterone to oestrogen. This herb works just as well, whether the person has a hormone excess or deficiency, because it acts as a regulator, helping to stabilise hormonal signals. It has also been shown to stimulate libido, reduce hot flushes, and help improve vaginal dryness and breast tenderness.
Black cohosh is an old Native American remedy. It contains phyto-oestrogens and is excellent for menopausal problems because it helps to balance female hormones, reduces hot flushes, joint pain. This herb when used in combination with agnus castus increases their combined effectiveness in balancing female hormones during this period of transition. It lowers high blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and reduces mucus production. It relieves back pain, and is good for arthritis. Helps with many pre-menopausal symptoms.
Damiana and Beth root are both used to stimulate muscular contractions of the intestinal tract and bring oxygen to the genital area. It is used as an energy tonic and aphrodisiac, as well as to remedy sexual and hormonal problems. Vitamin B6 was shown to double the amount of magnesium in red blood cells after 100 mg was given twice a day for four weeks. Vitamin B6 is also needed for choline to function, and choline is needed to clear oestrogens from the liver.
Kelp is important in this formulation because of its high nutritional content, in particular it is high in zinc, manganese, chromium, selenium, cobalt, calcium, magnesium, iron and iodine, and because of its ability to regulate the thyroid gland. The liquorice plant root has oestrogen and progesterone-like effects and it contains quite powerful adaptogens (substances that restore hormonal balance and help to cope with stress). Liquorice influence adrenal hormones, responsible for stress and has widespread uses for a number of hormone-related conditions probably because adrenal and sex hormones are closely related. Saw palmetto acts as a diuretic and urinary antiseptic.
The flowers of the red clover plant are used because of the high levels of phytoestrogens combined with isoflavones. Red clover is one of the few plants to contain all four isoflavones. Two specific oestrogen dominance type conditions that would benefit from the use of red clover include fibroids and endometriosis. Ropufa N6 (borage oil) has been extensively documented as an excellent source of GLA (Gamma-linolenic acid) an essential fatty acid that many women have found to relieve unpleasant menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, irritability, mood swings, and to help a person “feel normal” and be able to “get on with their lives”.
