Women's Health

A woman's nutritional needs are unique and change as she travels through life.

Monthly hormone fluctuations place unique demands on a woman's body.  A delicate interplay of hormones orchestrated between the ovaries, adrenal glands, uterus, pituitary gland, and hypothalamus gland can influence well-being, moods, energy, blood sugar levels, fertility and immunity.

Nature's Sunshine offers products that help women achieve overall balance.

Women's Formula

This combination is designed to provide the nutrition necessary for proper balance of the female reproductive and glandular systems.  It is an herbal source of iron, magnesium, manganese, selenium, silicon, sodium, B vitamins niacin and riboflavin and vitamins A and C.

Caution:  Pregnancy and nursing.

F.E. Formual

Black Cohosh, a principal herb in this formula, is widely known for its ability to help support the mature woman's body as she encounters normal glandular imbalances and physical changes.  In fact, women have used it for decades to help "keep cool" during menopause.

F.E. Formula is a potent timed-release version of this trusted herb.  F.E. Formula is standardized to a 2.5 percent concentration of triterpene glycosides (the key active component) and includes dong quai, a noted Chinese herb, to further support the glandular system.

Each tablet provides 80 mg of black cohosh (concentrated extract).  A slow-release matrix process ensures a full 10 hours of support.

Caution:  Pregnancy and nursing.

Maca

Maca, a rainforest herb that is a member of the radish family, grows in the Andes mountains of South America.  Women have reported for centuries that the herb helps ease symptoms of postmenstrual syndrome and menopause.  It is not known by what mechanism maca accomplishes this, but it is thought that the herb regulates the thymus/pituitary axis and thus balances hormonal changes in the body.

Evening Primrose Oil

Women have relied on Evening Primrose oil to relieve the discomforts of PMS for centuries.  Evening Primrose Oil owes much of its reputation to the presence of gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an omega-6 fatty acid.  Evening Primrose oil promotes a prostaglandin that inhibits the action of prolactin-which is found in high levels in women with PMS.  High levels of prolactin can cause progesterone levels to drop causing PMS symptoms.  Evening Primrose oil is also helpful for relieving cramping and heavy bleeding.

Wild Yam & Chaste Tree

Wild Yam & Chaste Tree is an herbal formula designed to balance the glandular system with a special focus on female hormone activity.

The combined benefits of Wild Yam & Chaste Tree may be helpful for treating numerous female complaints associated with a woman's reproductive system, whether from over-or under-active glandular function.

Wild Yam contains a compound called diosgenin, which is similar to the hormone progesterone.

The diosgenin is wild yam (approx. 40%) mimics progesterone's effect upon the body and has become increasingly popular in the treatment of PMS and menopausal symptoms.  Progesterone buffers the negative effect of elevated estrogen levels.

Calcium/Magnesium

Women entering menopause are at a high risk of developing osteoporosis unless they consume bone-building nutrients like calcium/magnesium and vitamin D.

The minerals calcium and magnesium are also beneficial for heart health and the relief of PMS and menopausal symptoms.

Flax Hull Lignans

Recent studies have revealed that the substances called "lignans" within plants have specific anti-estrogenic activity, which can prevent and treat certain hormonal conditions related to estrogen overload.  most of this research is being carried out in preventing and treating breast cancer and symptoms of menopause.

Flax seed is by far nature's richest source of plant lignans.  Some 27 different lignans are found in the fibrous hull of flax seed, with the most researched lignan being SDG (secoisolariciresinol diglycoside).

Nature's Sunshine's Flax Hull Lignans are derived through a unique mechanical extraction process that leaves all 27 lignans in the final product.  Flax Hull Lignans are certified organic.  While most competitive products contain only 1.6% lignans, Nature's Sunshine's Flax Hull Lignans contain a remarkable 8-9% lignans.

Furthermore, the SDG lignan is a potent antioxidant and has also been shown to enhance immune system function.

Vitamin D3

Vitamin D, also known as the sunshine vitamin, has become recognized as an essential nutrient in the prevention of many diseases and chronic conditions associated with aging.  Specifically, vitamin D is beneficial in helping prevent the following:  breat and many other cancers, depression, osteoporosis, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), diabetes, autoimmune disorders, mood disorders, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), inflammation, arthritis, cardiovascular disease, and respiratory ailments.

Medical professionals now recommend adults receive at least 100 IUs of vitamin D per day.
