Pffafia (also known as Brazilian ginseng, Suma and Paratudo) has been known to Amazon Indians for thousands of years and extensively studied by American and Japanese scientists – it is very popular with women going through the menopause or PMS in these countries, to relieve symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Pffafia has been documented to contain a significant amount of plant sterols, which are thought to have oestrogenic properties or activities (most notably, sitosterol and stigmasterol). It is also an adaptogen and restorative tonic.
Soya isoflavones and red clover: Isoflavones are oestrogen-like compounds that can help to modulate the effects of the stronger oestrogen and testosterone produced by the body. Four trials have now shown that isoflavones, found in high levels in both soya and red clover, can halve the incidence and severity of hot flushes, as well as help to relieve the other symptoms of menopause, such as irritability and vaginal dryness.
Wild yam: The starting material in the manufacture of “the Pill”, the root and bulb of wild yam contain the chemical diosgenin, which can be made into various steroids (such as oestrogen and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)). As such, it is often used as a natural alternative to oestrogen therapy, for vaginal dryness in older women, for PMS (premenstrual syndrome), menstrual cramps, weak bones (osteoporosis), low energy levels and sex drive. Some women even apply wild yam creams to the skin to reduce menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes.
Sage leaf: contains diterpene bitters, volatile oil, flavonoids and rosmarinic acid. It has a tonic effect on the female reproductive system and is recommended for irregular menstruation and menstrual cramps. As a result of its oestrogenic effect, it has also been shown to be effective in alleviating the following symptoms of menopause, including anxiety, fatigue, night sweats, hot flashes and mood swings.
Siberian ginseng: is a tonic herb, which can support health and well-being. As an adaptogen, it helps the body to perform at optimum levels and counter the ill-effects of stress. A rich source of phytonutrients and eleutherosides, ginseng is also used by many women to counteract the symptoms of menopause.
Long-term intake of amounts greater than 10mg of vitamin B6 daily may lead to mild tingling and numbness.
