Menopause can be a bit of a wild ride. Hot flashes can descend like an army of locusts at the most inopportune times, but there is other unpleasantness related to hormonal changes including anxiety, insomnia, moodiness, headaches and vaginal dryness. Symptoms tend to be erratic, vary from woman to woman and can start in your 40s, up to 10 years before your periods actually stop.
Black cohosh is a plant in the buttercup family that is proving to be a natural alternative to hormone replacement therapy. Preliminary research 1,2 shows that it balances the hormones that cause discomfort during perimenopause and menopause. It works with the neurotransmitters in the brain to quell hot flashes, anxiety, sleep, depressed mood, headaches, vaginal dryness and inflammation.3
Each capsule of Nested Naturals Menopause Care includes 40 mg of pure black cohosh root extract. Grinding up the root into a powder doesn’t yield very much of the active ingredient, but it’s an easy and cheap process. That’s why so many herbal supplements use powder forms. We buck the trend and use an extraction process that allows us to guarantee that you are getting a concentration of the good stuff. Because you’re looking for more than an herbal placebo, right?
We add other menopause supporting herbs to the formula. Dong Quai(Angelica) also known as the “female ginseng” in Traditional Chinese Medicine, is a blood tonic that is known to relieve hot flashes, vaginal dryness and depression.3,4 Chamomile can help with insomnia and anxiety that are common symptoms of menopause.5,6 Milk Thistle supports the liver which is critical for hormone balance and elimination.7
Nested Naturals Menopause Care is a harmonious blend of herbs formulated to support women in perimenopause and menopause. Black cohosh works together harmoniously with Dong Quai, Chamomile and Milk Thistle to help balance your hormones and relieve the discomfort of menopause.
