NOTE: Menopausal Formula has been reformulated and is now called Women's Vitality Formula.
Menopause brings a unique, yet nearly universal set of symptoms for all women - hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and insomnia, for starters. These symptoms are of course extremely disruptive to a woman’s everyday life, not to mention their often sudden emergence that can throw a woman's entire life out of balance.
Mountain Peak’s Menopausal Formula was made for women that want a natural approach to hormone balance and menopause symptoms. The ingredients in it support a woman’s two main hormones, estrogen and progesterone, while also supporting luteinzing hormone which plays an important role in menopausal symptoms.
Best Uses For Menopausal Formula:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Mood swings associated with hormonal changes
- Perimenopause (when periods become irregular)
- Menopause (when periods have stopped for at least a year)
- Low libido
Here’s How Menopausal Formula Works:
Black Cohosh has a long history of use in the Native American culture for treating hot flashes, menstrual cramps and other health issues specific to women. Black cohosh works to reduce these symptoms by supporting leutinizing hormone (LH), which in turn functions to stimulate release of estrogen in healthy levels from the ovaries through the perimenopausal time.
The black cohosh used in this formula is obtained from one of the world’s most relied-upon producer of standardized herbal extracts, Madaus Gmbh in Germany.
Chaste Tree (Vitex) works primarily on the pituitary gland in the brain to stimulate the release of luteinizing hormone which supports healthy levels of estrogen and progesterone, thereby decreasing deficiency symptoms. Chaste tree has been shown to have estrogenic and progesterone activity.
Wild Yam (Dioscorea) contains diosgenin which has similar effects to progesterone and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). It also enhances binding of estradiol (E2) to estrogen receptors, thereby support estrogen’s effects in the body.
Soy Isoflavones are phytochemicals derived from soy that contain genistein and daidzein. Research has shown these compounds to have powerful estrogenic activity, helping balance estrogen's actions in the body. When estrogen levels are high, isoflavones will moderate the effect of estrogens and when low, it supports estrogenic activity. Soy isoflavones in this product are certified non-GMO.
Licorice Root (Glycyrrhiza) is an herb with widespread uses throughout the body. It’s included in this formula for its synergistic hormonal balancing effects, namely by supporting cortisol levels and its anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties.
Burdock Root supports immunity, and has liver-protective effects. Ensuring liver health indirectly supports hormone balance, as this organ is responsible for clearing ‘old’ hormones out of circulation.
Passion Flower (Passiflora) is a very mild sedative and helps balance mood swings.
Magnesium is included in Menopausal Formula for its bone-supportive role; deficiency contributes to impairment of osteoblast (bone-building cells) activity while tipping the scale toward osteoclast (bone-resorbing) cellular activity. (Bone is continuously ‘recycled’ and there’s a balance between building and tearing down older bone structures).
Silica is a mineral that plays an important, yet often overlooked role in bone development.
For a gentle, effective way to balance female hormones through the peri-menopausal (when periods become irregular later in life) and menopausal (one periods have stopped for one year) time frames, Menopausal Formula is a great way to reduce hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, mood swings and insomnia, so you can enjoy this part of your life!
