Why it’s worth supplementing your lifestyle with herbs during menopause

  • 1 min read

Menopause is an inevitable process and various ailments can be associated with it. It’s a very difficult phase in life, however it can be made a little easier if you compliment your lifestyle with herbs. Thankfully nature has given us a way to cope with this particular period.

Menopause completely changes the female body, which is often accompanied by a long list of troublesome symptoms and dangers: hot flashes, hyperactivity, sagging skin and muscles, heart disease, vaginal dryness, increased risk of osteoporosis or certain cancers. In many cases, it is worth looking to herbs to support the body and mind. So which herbs will help you survive menopause?

Agnus Castus, restores the hormonal balance and helps to alleviate the discomfort associated with menopause in women. This fantastic herb contains compounds that send the pituitary gland a signal to increase luteinizing hormone production and decrease the amount of hormones being produced to stimulate follicle growth.

Indirectly, this makes progesterone production spike. This is beneficial to pre-menopausal, peri-menopausal and menopausal women, as during these stages progesterone levels fall, making oestrogen – previously on par with progesterone – the most dominant hormone. This imbalance is responsible for the feelings of anxiety, stress and panic associated with the menopause, in addition to tension headaches, palpitations and digestive problems.

We recommend 2 cups a day of agnus castus infusion for a better hormone health! Depending on taste, feel free to blend agnus castus with other feminine health herbs such as chamomile and damask rose.

Do not consume if taking dopamine-related medications or Parkinson’s disease medications, the pill, fertility drugs, HRT or undergoing any other hormonal treatment.
