Fem Adapt - 60 Veggie Capsules
Fem Adapt was formulated with the most effective natural substances known to help relieve the symptoms associated with menopause. It is used in herbal medicine to help relieve premenstrual symptoms, including pain associated with menstruation, muscle and joint pain associated with rheumatic conditions (such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and/or fibrositis), pain associated with neuralgia (such as sciatica) and to help ease nervous tension/nervousness (sedative and/or calmative).
Symptoms of Menopause Menopause refers to the permanent cessation of ovulation and menstrual periods in women, which can occur either naturally or as a result of medical or surgical intervention. It is a natural physiological event that results in a decreased production of sex hormones – estrogen and progesterone – by the ovaries. The primary symptoms of menopause include hot flashes and night sweats. Secondary symptoms can include anxiety, mood swings, depression, loss of libido and vaginal dryness. Hot flashes are thought to result from a decline in circulating estradiol (E2) that induces a thermoregulatory dysfunction mediated by the hypothalamus. Hormonal Balance Studies have shown that phytoestrogens such as lignans from flax and genistein from soy isoflavones have direct effects on some of the hormonal pathways that are involved in menopausal symptoms. This combination may also be effective in reducing the risks of post-menopausal-related osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. AOR’s Fem Adapt formula provides safe and effective relief for menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats and protection against diseases for which the risk increases after menopause like cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.
