Herbs for Menopause
There are many herbs for menopause that
can provide substantial relief from your symptoms and get you back on
the road to emotional balance, better quality sleep and a much greater
sense of well-being. These provide safe alternatives to the dangers
associated with synthetic prescription hormones often used in hormone
Menopause can become quite distressing
and many symptoms associated with premenopause and menopause can become
quite disruptive. Chronic fatigue, intense mood swings, hot flashes
and night sweats can, along with the many other signs and symptoms of
menopause, interfere with daily life to the point of exasperation.
Soy isoflavones have shown to
greatly reduce fatigue, hot flashes and night sweats. They also improve
fat-free muscle mass, increase bone density and create a healthier mental
balance by reducing mood swings, anxiety and depression. Isoflavones
have been proven over and over again in studies to be effective in menopause
Red clover is another isoflavone and
is one of the many herbs for menopause that also provides significant
menopause relief. Red clover
is a wild plant that has long been known throughout history to fight
many conditions, such as cancers, arthritis, and respiratory illness.
It is also a highly effective menopause treatment. Isoflavones act as
estrogen receptors and help balance the effects of fluctuating estrogen
as they have an estrogen-type effect within the body.
Soy isoflavones and red clover are not
only essential herbs for menopause, but also help your body better absorb
Vitamin C and calcium. Red clover contains additional calcium and Vitamin
C and has many other essential vitamins and minerals including niacin,
magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and thiamine. It also creates stronger
arteries, improves blood flow and helps prevent the formation of blood
Sage extract and blessed thistle
are two more safe, effective herbs for menopause. Sage is in the mint
family and originally comes from the Mediterranean area. You may know
sage more as a common kitchen ingredient, but it is also a phytoestrogen
and is especially effective in the treatment of hot flashes and night
sweats. Blessed thistle provides relief from the additional menopause
symptoms of headaches and gastrointestinal distress and is an additional
source of calcium, phosphorus, manganese, iron and the Vitamin-B complex.
Other herbs for menopause include
Don Quai and black cohosh. Black cohosh has been found to
greatly reduce the frequency and intensity of hot flashes and night
sweats. Some studies have found it more effective in the treatment of
hot flashes and night sweats than standard hormone replacement therapy.
It is also effective against fatigue, mood swings, menstrual irregularity,
heart palpitations, insomnia, depression and vaginal dryness.
Don Quai has been used in Asian countries
for centuries and is known as one of the many effective herbs for menopause
as well as PMS. It is very effective in creating female hormone balance
and regulating your body’s hormones as it has an estrogen type affect
within the body. Most menopausal women taking Don Quai notice a substantial
reduction in symptoms and experience long-term menopause relief with
its continued use.
