NUTRITIONAL SUPPORT FOR SYMPTOMS ASSOCIATED WITH A WOMENS MENSTRUAL CYCLE
VITAMIN C (ASCORBIC ACID) is an antioxidant that protects tissues from free radical damage. Ascorbic acid aids in the regeneration of Vitamin Es antioxidant properties. Connective tissue integrity is dependent on adequate Vitamin C. Beneficial prostaglandin synthesis favoring eicosanoids with antithrombotic and vasodilatory actions are positively influenced with Vitamin C.
VITAMIN E is the principal antioxidant of the lipid bilayer of the cell membrane. It protects polyunsaturated fatty acids and lipoproteins (LDL) from oxidation. Vitamin E is important for heart and blood vessel health, immune health and the health of nerve cells and the nervous system. Vitamin E has also been shown to promote healthy menstrual function.
VITAMIN B6 assists in the reduction of fluid retention via regulation of aldosterone. It also enhances progesterone levels and reduces symptoms of irritability and fatigue.
CALCIUM D-GLUCARATE encourages a healthy estrogen metabolism through beneficial regulation of glucuronidation in the liver. Calcium D-Glucarate helps the body dispose of toxins and harmful estrogen metabolic end products.
MAGNESIUM may be beneficial in normalizing brain dopamine often depleted in patients with menstrual cycle dysfunction, where magnesium is often deficient.
CURCUMA LONGA (TURMERIC) is beneficial for uterine, breast and liver health. Curcumin has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties.
DIOSCOREA VILLOSA (WILD YAM) is used industrially as the active agent in the halfsynthesis of steroid hormones such as progesterone. It has anti-spasmodic actions. A common use is for uterine cramping.
CIMICIFUGA RACEMOSA (BLACK COHOSH) main indications for use are premenstrual and dysmenorrheic neurovegetative disorders. Symptoms of sleep disturbances and emotional symptoms have shown positive benefit with the use of black cohosh. Luteinizing hormone levels (LH), but not Follicle Stimulation Hormones (FSH), are significantly reduced with Cimicifuga racemosa extracts. Cimicifuga racemosa extracts have been shown to potentiate the effects of tamoxifen and do not possess stimulatory effects on estrogen receptor positive cells. Black cohosh may help prevent bone loss. Extracts were shown to stimulate bone formation even in ovariectomized rats.
VITEX AGNUS-CASTUS (CHASTE TREE) helps reduce many symptoms of the menstrual cycle including cramping and menstrual flow regulation.
VIBERNUM OPULUS (CRAMP BARK) has a long history of use as an antispasmodic, reducing uterine cramping.
CAULOPHYLLUM THALICTROIDES (BLUE COHOSH) use dates back to the beginning of the 20th century primarily for menstrual ailments and uterine cramps.
ANGELICA SENESIS (DONG QUAI) does not appear to have estrogenic actions; rather it appears to enhance estrogen regulation. Its traditional use is as a blood tonic, enhancing the circulation and providing energy, vitality, and improved resistance to disease.
ZINGIBER OFFICINALE (GINGER) is an inhibitor of prostaglandin synthesis with a long history of use for uterine cramps and pain.
PAEONIA LACTIFLORA (PEONY) traditional use has been for womens hormonal health.
