The cessation of a woman’s menstrual cycle typically occurs in midlife, during the late 40s or early 50s, and signals the end of the fertile phase. For some women, the accompanying signs and effects that can occur during the transition years can be strong enough to significantly disrupt daily activities and sense of well-being. Femarin includes five key ingredients that provide proven phytoestrogen shown to support a woman’s unique needs during this period. Specifically, Femarin’s formula addresses hormonal balance, supports normal levels of inflammation and provides antioxidant support, as well as cardiovascular and bone support.
Femarin is a unique blend of botanicals formulated to provide targeted support for a comfortable and balanced menopausal transition. Femarin includes the synergistic blend of gamma oryzanol, black cohosh root extract, Dong quai, licorice root and trans-resveratol in therapeutic doses to promote female hormonal balance before and during menopause.
2 capsules per day in divided doses or as recommended by your health care professional
Black cohosh has been shown to significantly reduce mild menopause-related symptoms, even when compared to other regimens in double-blind, placebo-controlled studies. This botanical has been widely used for more than 40 years in Europe and is approved in Germany for premenstrual discomfort, painful menstruation and menopausal symptoms.
Resveratrol, a polyphenol found in grapes and red wine, has been shown to have an effect on free radical scavenging and antioxidant properties in various tissues. Similar in structure to estrogen, trans-resveratrol provides a range of supportive activities including hormonal balance and promoting normal inflammatory balance.
Licorice Root Extract
The active components of licorice root include glycyrrhizin and isoflavones. Licorice root’s isoflavones have been shown to exert a balancing effect on estrogen levels. When estrogen levels are too high, it will inhibit estrogen action, and when estrogen are too low, it will increase estrogen action.
Gamma oryzanol (ferulic acid) is a natural compound extracted from rice bran oil. Gamma oryzanol was first shown to be effective for relieving hot flashes in the early 1960s. A recent study of 40 women given a dose of 300 mg/day of gamma oryzanol showed a reduction in menopausal symptoms in 85% of female subjects.
Considered by many as the woman’s herb, Dong quai (Angelica sinensis) is native to China and Korea, where it is considered as a “female ginseng” due to its ability to support a regular and healthy menstrual cycle and menopausal transition
