Perimenopause is an important transition in a woman’s life, as she moves from her reproductive years into later life. Many women (research suggests the majority of women) experience uncomfortable symptoms during perimenopause that affect their quality of life.
That’s why we designed Estrolene for Perimenopausal Support. Our all-natural, time-tested blend of herbs and nutrients can help ease and support your transition through perimenopause. Our formula is designed to alleviate the most common signs and symptoms of perimenopause like hot flashes, night sweats, mood-related symptoms, and the loss of bone density that can lead to osteoporosis.
The herbs in Estrolene have been used for centuries to support women during the menopausal transition. We’ve taken the best of traditional medicine and combined it with modern research to create a product that is safe, gentle, and effective. Let’s take a look at some of the amazing benefits Estrolene has to offer.
Our comprehensive blend of herbs and essential nutrients includes three of the most important vitamins and minerals for women during perimenopause. Vitamins D, E, and calcium can help address perimenopausal symptoms while also supporting immune health and healthy bone density.
Vitamin D, which is often called the “sunshine vitamin,” is a necessary nutrient for calcium and phosphorus absorption. Most of our vitamin D comes from sun exposure, as our skin converts UV rays to this essential nutrient. We consume additional vitamin D in oil-rich fish like salmon and sun-exposed mushrooms.
According to research, at least 50% of people are vitamin D deficient, meaning they do not get enough of this important vitamin either through diet or sunshine. This can be especially problematic for perimenopausal women, for who decreasing bone density can lead to osteoporosis and a greater risk of fracture from falls. As we age, our bodies become less efficient at synthesizing vitamin D from the sun. Decreasing levels of estrogen during perimenopause affect this process as well, making supplementation even more important for women in this age group.
In addition to helping prevent osteoporosis and fractures, vitamin D supplementation may be useful in managing other signs of perimenopause like sleep and mood disorders, vaginal dryness and irritation, urinary incontinence, and fatigue.
Vitamin E is an important antioxidant vitamin that helps to mitigate cellular damage caused by free radicals in the body. The oxidative stress associated with free radical damage can inhibit the osteoblastic activity that formulates new bone growth. This interference can lead to osteoporosis. Researchers are realizing the importance of vitamin E supplementation in perimenopausal women, for whom low vitamin E levels are associated with greater fracture risk.
Studies have long shown that calcium levels tend to be lower in perimenopausal women, potentially leading to a higher risk of osteoporosis and fractures. Calcium and vitamin D supplementation has long been recommended in populations at risk of fracture due to bone density loss. The two nutrients are typically recommended together since vitamin D aids in calcium absorption.
Fluctuating hormone levels during perimenopause lead to insufficient calcium absorption and increase the risk of osteoporosis. Since the majority of women do not consume enough calcium and vitamin D in their diets, supplementation can be beneficial in ensuring levels are high enough to protect against osteoporosis.
Proprietary Herbal Blend
The proprietary blend of herbs in Estrolene was designed with research and safety in mind. We chose time-tested herbal gems that have a wide-ranging reach in their therapeutic effects.
Red clover isoflavones, magnolia bark extract, black cohosh root, chaste tree berry, and pueraria mirifica root together address the primary complaints of women during perimenopause. Hot flashes, night sweats, mood and sleep-related problems, and symptoms of vaginal dryness and loss of libido can all be improved with Estrolene’s custom herbal blend.
Red clover isoflavones are phytoestrogens extracted from the red clover plant. They are a safe, effective approach to treating symptoms associated with perimenopause, especially vasomotor symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats.
Hot flashes and night sweats are some of the most common complaints from women during perimenopause. They can be uncomfortable, distressing, and affect quality of life and sleep. Red clover isoflavones have been shown to significantly lower the frequency and intensity of these uncomfortable vasomotor symptoms. In addition, studies have shown that red clover isoflavones can improve the quality of vaginal tissue to alleviate symptoms like dryness and irritation and may also improve healthy triglyceride levels.
Magnolia Bark Extract
Magnolia bark extract comes from the bark of the magnolia tree and has long been used as an herbal treatment in traditional Chinese medicine. Magnolia bark is known for its natural phytoestrogen like compound called “honokiol.” Researchers have been studying honokiol for its neuroprotective qualities and effectiveness in treating conditions like anxiety and insomnia.
For perimenopausal women, magnolia bark extract has been shown to reduce symptoms of hot flashes and night sweats, but it additionally helps with anxiety, irritability, sleep issues, vaginal dryness, and loss of libido. This herbal extract appears to be a perimenopausal powerhouse!
Black Cohosh Root
Black cohosh root, a native North American member of the buttercup family, has been used for centuries to address a number of common physical ailments. Known as Sheng Ma in the Chinese medicine pharmacopeia, black cohosh root is an important herb used in heat-clearing formulas. It is one of the most effective herbs in treating a wide range of perimenopausal symptoms from hot flashes and night sweats to vaginal dryness, mood-related symptoms, and sleep issues.
Studies have shown that black cohosh is even more effective in reducing the number and severity of hot flashes than other natural treatments like evening primrose oil (EPO). It really is an amazing and versatile herb!
Chaste Tree Berry
Chaste tree berry, or vitex, is another herb with wide-ranging effects. A native Mediterranean plant, it can be used to treat premenstrual, perimenopausal, and fertility-related complaints.
Pueraria Mirifica Root
Pueraria mirifica is a plant native to Southeast Asia. Part of its name is derived from the Latin word for “miraculous,” referring to its documented use as a rejuvenating and anti-aging herb as far back as 13th century AD. Today, this tradition is continued in Pueraria mirifica’s use as an herb to treat symptoms associated with perimenopause.
Research shows that Pueraria mirifica root is effective in reducing vasomotor symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats. It has also been shown to improve vaginal tissue health in perimenopausal women, alleviating symptoms of vaginal dryness and pain during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia).
