Soy seeds (Glycine max)
No other food contains as much phytoestrogen (natural plant estrogens) than soy. Phytoestrogens do the same work as human estrogens in the woman's body, though they are not that strong. By attaching themselves to the body's estrogen receptor sites phytoestrogens decrease estrogen levels in the period of perimenopause and increase estrogen levels in the postmenopausal period. In other words, they maintain the balance of estrogens in the body of the menopausal woman. Also according to recent investigations, soy not only ease and eliminate menopause and early menopause symptoms but also make the heart healthier. Moreover, long term use of soy don't have side effects and is absolutely safe.
Vitamin E (d-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate)
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that has showed to be an effective treatment for such menopause and postmenopause symptoms as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, urinary discomforts, etc. But Vitamin E has other benefits for health as well. It has a positive healing effect on Alzheimer's disease and cancer. Vitamin E also reduces the risk of heart attack. Statistics say, that women who took vitamin E over a two-year period reduced their risk of fatal heart attacks by 40%. Vitamin E can be successfully combined with other antioxidants such as selenium, chromium, beta-carotene, and vitamin C to create a synergistic effect.
Damiana leaf (Turnerna diffusa)
Damiana is a well-known aphrodisiac and stimulant. It is a yellow-flowering shrub that grows in Central and South America. Damiana is indicated to smooth depression and relieve anxiety. It induces euphoria and relaxation, setting the perfect sensuous mood. This aphrodisiac herb is also used in case of sexual disfunction resulting from stress or emotional strains.
Black Cohosh root (Cimicifuga racemosa)
Black cohosh is a perennial American herb, whose rootstock is widely used in medicine. But primarily it is used for alleviation of menopause and early menopause symptoms. Usually it takes up to 6 months to treat such menopausal symptoms as hot flashes, sleep disorders and mood disturbance. Extract of black cohosh is also highly efficient in the treatment of several neurovegetative menopause symptoms, as it works just like estrogen. Read Black Cohosh Fact Sheet Here.
