What Every Woman Should Know!
In Dr. Northrup’s groundbreaking book, The Wisdom of Menopause, there is an entire chapter on herbal approaches to menopause. In addition, there is a section on bioidentical hormones for those women who require them. When the menstrual cycle ends, the body decreases its production of estrogen and progesterone. Consequently, many menopausal women and post-menopausal women need something to replace the loss of natural estrogen.
Chemical substitutes can help to alleviate both the psychological and physiological changes that women will experience. Chemical therapies, however, must be conducted under a physician’s close guidance, and are not without risk. Many women, when faced with the choice of taking this risk, simply try to “tough it out”…certainly not a pleasant alternative!
So…….Is There Another Way?
Absolutely! A better and safer solution could be to use Pueraria mirifica, which is a natural plant estrogen found in nature.
Pueraria mirifica contains phytoestrogens that can supplement estrogen insufficiency in the body. Phytoestrogens (meaning plant-estrogens), are plant sterols which have a structure that is different from mammalian estrogens, thus creating different effects. They are also known as adaptogens, meaning that they nourish and tonify estrogen-sensitive tissue.
How Does This Work?
The human body contains various types of receptors; one type of receptor is the estrogen receptor which is found on cells throughout the body including the genital tract and even the brain. Estrogen receptors stimulate estrogenic activity and send their respective signals throughout the human body. There are two types—alpha and beta. Mammalian estrogens combine with the alpha receptor and result in cell growth…..not always a good thing.
Phytoestrogens, on the other hand, combine with the beta estrogen receptors. They thus act as natural SERMS (selective estrogen receptor modulators). They do not promote cell growth but have other estrogenic effects.
What Does This All Mean?
When Pueraria mirifica is taken, its potent phytoestrogens circulate throughout the body and get picked up by the estrogen receptors on the surface of the brain, blood vessels, bone, breast, and ovarian cells. The ensuing estrogenic activity helps to restore normal function to the body which may have slowed down due to lack of estrogen.
The phytoestrogens found in Pueraria mirifica act as a substitute for the body’s estrogen.
Phytoestrogens are natural, and safe.
