Women’s Health – Coping With Menstrual Problems and Issues Related to Menopause

Women’s health is a growing concern. Whether you are a younger woman coping with menstrual problems or a woman experiencing issues related to menopause, there may be some convenient solution to help solve some of your problems. Shaklee has the best solutions for both problems in GLA Complex, Menopause Balance Complex and Menopause Balance Complex Cooling Lotion.

Menstrual Issues

Menstrual issues may be solved by using Shaklee’s GLA Complex, which is designed to promote menstrual health with a combination of Borage oil, Sunflower seed oil and Vitamin E to reduce inflammation and provide for healthy hormonal balance.

o Borage oil contains both linolenic acid and gamma linolenic acid (GLA) which helps to form certain types of prostaglandins that promote healthy hormonal activity during the menstrual cycle. Production of the right type of prostaglandin may help to ease and promote healthy blood flow and reduce PMS symptoms. Borage oil is higher in GLA than many other plant products and is readily absorbed making it an ideal ingredient in young women’s health supplements.

o Sunflower seed oil is high in omega fatty acids which may help to reduce inflammation. It is also high in lignans, linolenic acid and other phytonutrients which promote all over health and may help to balance mood, important in women’s health issues related to the menstrual cycle.

o Vitamin E natural concentrate (d-alpha tocopherol) is known to be a highly active antioxidant which helps scavenge free radicals which may contribute to stress and body damage. Most women are deficient in Vitamin E and taking a quality supplement with vitamin E may help promote young women’s health by reduction the symptoms of PMS and improving skin appearance which may be a particularly troubling portion of the menstrual cycle.

Menopausal Issues

Menopausal symptoms may be reduced with Shaklee Menopause Balance Complex supplement containing Black Cohosh, Flaxseed, Soy and a proprietary Blend of Dong Quai, Red Clover and Licorice extract all designed to replace waning hormone levels with natural phytosterols which may reduce some of the more troubling symptoms of menopause. Menopause Balance Complex Cooling Lotion may be applied to the skin to naturally protect against temperature fluctuations which contribute to night sweats, hot flashes and difficulty sleeping. The cooling lotion contains a blend of Black Cohosh, Evening Primrose, Flaxseed and Soy in a moisturizing base of highly absorbable Jojoba oil.

o Black Cohosh is the primary ingredient in most women’s health supplements for those dealing with issues related to the onset of menopause. Black Cohosh has been proven to reduce symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes. It may also help with other symptoms such as insomnia, irritability, and mood imbalance. It is high in phytoestrogens which act to naturally supplement waning hormone levels during and after the onset of menopause, making it an essential part of a woman’s health regimen.

o Flaxseed, both extract and oil is known to be high in healthy essential fatty acids. Omega fatty acids have been shown to promote the health of many body systems including heart, brain and joints. It may help to reduce bad cholesterol, protect against memory loss and reduce inflammation which may contribute to conditions such as arthritis, all common women’s health issues for those nearing menopause.

o Soy has been shown to contain isoflavones, which also act as phytohormones to promote health in women. Phytohormones may protect against diseases such as cancer and may reduce some symptoms of menopause.

o Dong Quai has long been used in Asia to treat conditions of women’s health problems including those related to menopause. It has been called “female tonic” because it has a mild estrogenic effect important in the treatment of menopausal symptoms.

o Red Clover is known to be high in phytoestrogens and other plant based sterols which may reduce symptoms of menopause. It has been used as a women’s health supplement for many years to reduce occurrences of hot flashes and night sweats which are a particular problem for many women.

o Licorice Root is thought to balance the hormones by acting as a phytoprogesterone. This may help to restore the natural balance of estrogen and progesterone which are both important in the maintenance of women’s health.

o Evening Primrose oil and extract have been used to promote healthy sleep during menopause. This is particularly important as many women complain of insomnia and frequent nighttime awakenings. Sleep difficulties are common both due to hot flashes and night sweats but also due to an inability to relax. Evening primrose oil provides women’s health benefits by reducing menopausal symptoms and promoting relaxation.

o Jojoba oil is highly absorbable and promotes moisture retention when applied to skin. It is the best vehicle for creams as it allows for better absorption of other ingredients while acting as an excellent moisturizer, important for aging skin.
