When women age‚ they may experience uncomfortable symptoms. A red‚ flushed face accompanied with sweating is common‚ and tends to be related to changes in circulation in the blood vessels. Aging can interfere with your everyday life and comfort. All of these symptoms tend to result from changes in hormone levels that occur‚ such as decreased levels of estrogen or progesterone. However‚ you don't have to despair.
While stopping menopausal or perimenopausal symptoms is nearly impossible‚ there are ways to help alleviate their effects by decreasing their frequency or severity. Pure Encapsulations' Black Cohosh 2.5 provides natural black cohosh extract. This herb‚ also known as Cimicifuga racemosa root‚ is found throughout North America and Europe. It can allow your body to maintain healthy levels of luteinizing hormone (LH)‚ which is produced by the pituitary gland; older women may produce too much of it in some cases. As a result‚ you may feel healthier and more comfortable‚ so menopause doesn't have to mean becoming inactive or not doing the things you love.
In addition‚ this supplement's main ingredient may also bond to estrogen receptors in your body‚ Finally‚ it may support healty levels of bone mass‚ which may sometimes weaken with age.
One vegetable capsule provides 250 milligrams of black cohosh extract. The contents have been standardized to give you 2.5% of triterpene glycosides‚ which may help improve your mood and promote sleep while lessening annoying night sweats.
Each bottle of Black Cohosh 2.5 by Pure Encapsulations contains 120 capsules‚ which should last for about two to four months at the recommended dosage of one or two capsules daily‚ in divided doses between meals.
