There are a lot of jokes about hot flashes, but these menopause symptoms aren't very funny when they interfere with your ability to function and relax at home, at work or in social situations. Night sweats and poor sleep, mood swings and other phenomena related to the natural shifting of hormones before, during and after menopause can all be reduced or prevented with the right natural health support. Why a Menopause "Kit"?
It's been found that certain natural products provide relief for certain symptoms of menopause, but also that some herbs and nutrients offer even greater relief when used in combination. Each Holista Menopause Kit
contains a bottle of 100 Black Cohosh soft gelatin capsules and a bottle of 90 soft gelatin capsules of Evening Primrose Oil. Holista also makes its Menopause Kit
a cost effective choice. What is Black Cohosh?Black Cohosh
is the most popular and tested herbal extract for use in treatment of menopause symptoms. Black Cohosh has been used by women for centuries to ease hot flashes, mood swings, sleep disturbances, tension, anxiety, changes in libido, and night sweats. Each Holista Black Cohosh softgel contains a standardized amount of key active herbal compounds, for reliable effectiveness. Black Cohosh also has mild sedative and anti-inflammatory qualities. It is also helpful for PMS symptoms as these are, like menopause, related to shifting hormonal balance.What does Evening Primrose Oil do?Evening Primrose Oil
(EPO) contains the Omega-6 essential fatty acids gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and linolenic acid. These nutritional compounds are vital components of hormone-like substances called prostaglandins. Prostaglandins control inflammatory responses in the body, helping to ease menopause and menstrual discomfort and improve mood swings. Evening Primrose Oil is also used to support the immune, nervous and cardiovascular systems, improve skin conditions, arthritis and allergies. I thought EPO was for PMS?
Yes, EPO is an excellent source of omega-6 essential fatty acid that can provide relief of PMS symptoms, however, men and women with a wide variety of ailments - cardiovascular disease, respiratory problems, such as asthma, arthritis, eczema and other skin problems including acne - may benefit from EPO. Research has shown that EPO may also help children with ADD and ADHD. The omega-6s in EPO help the body form prostaglandins, fatty compounds that maintain and regulate hormones and other body functions. This is why this supplement is so useful for hormone-related conditions.
Women entering menopause can experience many symptoms. Some, such as mood swings, odd muscle twitches and tingling, and sleep disturbances, may not seem related to the change of life, but they can be. Before a woman turns to medications, that can have their own "symptoms" and repercussions, she may be wise to try a natural approach to managing menopause. She may discover everything she needs for a smooth transition in this menopause kit
