Planetary Herbals Menochange™ Cimicifuga-Vitex Compound is a comprehensive botanical preparation‚ used to support a woman's changing cycle through menopause. It contains a standardized black cohosh extract along with wild yam root extract from Native American herbal traditions‚ and Europe's premier female regulator‚ chaste tree berry (Vitex agnus-castus). These are combined with traditional Chinese herbs‚ including dong quai‚ renowned for their ability to support a healthy reproductive system.
The “change.” A challenging transition‚ with extensive emotional and physical impact. Because the onset of menopause‚ beginning as early as age 40‚ places unique demands on a woman‚ Planetary Herbals created MenoChange. This comprehensive formula integrates the traditional wisdom of herbalists with modern science. MenoChange combines proven botanicals and herbs to support a safe‚ gentle and positive passage.
The Hormone Balance:
Estrogen stimulates‚ affects and balances hundreds of processes. When its level fluctuates‚ the body's internal balancing act is profoundly influenced. Periods become irregular‚ sleeping patterns change‚ and women often experience mood swings‚ hot flashes or weight gain. The body vainly tries to compensate for estrogen loss by releasing luteinizing hormone. This causes wild changes in skin temperature‚ resulting in hot flashes and night sweats. MenoChange includes specific botanical phytoestrogens that are structurally similar to estrogen. Research demonstrates these phytonutrients may help to minimize luteinizing hormone release‚ thereby reducing the frequency of hot flashes.
At the heart of MenoChange is black cohosh root (Cimicifuga racemosa) extract‚ standardized to 2.5% triterpene glycosides‚ including 27-deoxyactein. This family of beneficial compounds may help reduce the occurrence of hot flashes. MenoChange is further formulated in a base of classic Chinese herbs‚ featuring dong quai‚ the most important Chinese female tonic. Vitex berry (chaste berry) and wild yam root are added from the North American and European herbal traditions. Vitex berry‚ widely used in Europe for menopause‚ influences the pituitary gland‚ which affects the body's natural production of hormones.
Additional traditional herbs include bupleurum root‚ epimedium leaf‚ atractylodes rhizome‚ white peony root‚ poria cocos‚ gardenia fruit‚ mountain peony root‚ anemerrhena root‚ phellodendron root‚ motherwort leaf‚ ginger root & licorice root. Bone health is a big concern for postmenopausal women as estrogen is well known to affect calcium absorption and retention. Therefore MenoChange includes calcium and magnesium citrate.
