Over the years menopause and the associated symptoms have gained more publicity. In fact the amount of publicity received probably understates the suffering women experience while going through the change. Not only do many women experience the change (symptoms), but they also reach a point of their life that child bearing is no longer possible. Both are life changing experiences. Fortunately nature has built different herbs to buffer the changes. One of those herbs is Black Cohosh from the Buttercup Family of plants. The formulation that I use in my office is made by Metagenics called Black Cohosh Plus. It helps to relieve menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes/night sweats, irritability and mood swings. Part of the formulation also includes lemon balm and motherwort, herbs traditionally used to ease tension, support relaxation and support a better night’s sleep. I know there are many different herbs out on the market. The key to all Metagenics’ herbal formulas is the extraction process. It is only the essence of the plant that gives the benefits and with Metagenics it is the essence of the plant that you get in the tablet. If you have more questions about this or other products please call me.
Yours in better health,
