The menopausal phase of a woman's life starts when her body begins to decrease its estrogen production. This transition process varies for each woman and can include hot flashes, headaches and mood swings. Female Balance is a unique post menopausal supplement combination of plant based wild yam, dong quai, and essential fatty acids that’s combined with potent vitamin B-6 to support the female body's natural ability to maintain proper hormonal function, health, energy, and overall well being.
Vitamin B-6: is a cofactor in 70 different enzyme systems that metabolize amino acids and proteins. Vitamin B-6 is involved in neurotransmitter production in the brain and nerve cells and supports mental function, mood enhancement, and nerve conduction.
Folic Acid: This vitamin plays an important role in DNA synthesis, maintaining the nervous system, and producing red blood cells. Folic acid helps metabolize and promote healthy levels of homocysteine. Additionally, supplemental levels of folic acid promote improved energy levels and heart health. The foundation for any post menopausal supplements.
GLA: Balanced Gamma Linoleic Acid levels promote healthy inflammation and immune responses as well as supports healthy blood pressure levels. An omega 6 fatty acid that supports the body’s heart, nervous, and reproductive systems, GLA is a nutrient used by the body to maintain healthy cells and body functions. The body does not manufacture GLA so it must be supplied through diet and supplementation.
Borage oil powder: Borage oil is the richest source of GLA and contains 20-30% GLA to promote a healthy inflammation response, for optimized immune and heart health in ProHealth's post menopausal supplements.
Wild yam root extract: The active ingredient in wild yam root is a naturally occurring substance called progesterone, which is the primary precursor hormone for estrogen, cortisone, and aldosterone. Wild yam is also helpful in soothing occasional cramps.
Dong quai: A traditional Chinese herb, dong quai contains phytoestrogens (plant estrogens) to promote increased circulation and healthy function of the endocrine system. Every quality post menopausal supplement should include dong quai.
Vitex angus cactus extract (Chaste berry): Chaste berry supports balanced hormone levels by supporting healthy levels of prolactin, a hormone that stimulates milk production during pregnancy from the pituitary gland. High levels of prolactin may be a factor in PMS and menstrual irregularity.
