Estro-Mend is a soy-free blend of herbs used in Herbal Medicine that helps ease nervous tension, while relieving pain associated with menstruation and symptoms associated with menopause.
A complex interaction of hormones regulates menstruation. Imbalances of hormones, including estrogen, can result in menstrual pain and premenstrual symptoms, which often include changes in mood, energy, attention, appetite, sleep, physical comfort (breast tenderness, bloating) and quality of life. Phytoestrogens, including black cohosh, mimic the functions of estrogens without proliferative actions, and help relieve menstrual pain and premenstrual symptoms.
Significantly less estrogen is produced in the period before menopause. Hormonal fluctuations during this time can result in common menopausal symptoms, including hot flushes and vaginal dryness. Phytoestrogens also support and minimize the changes and symptoms that are sometimes experienced during menopause. Studies have found that black cohosh helps relieve menopausal symptoms, such as hot flushes, excessive sweating, insomnia and vaginal atrophy. As menopause may result in sleep disruption, Estro-Mend also contains hops, which can relieve nervousness and aid sleep.
