The following active ingredients are foun in Feminene:
Black Cohosh is a shrub-like plant native to the eastern deciduous forests of North America. It has been used for centuries to help counteract the symptoms of PMS and menopause.
Vitamin E, or d-alpha tocerpherol, is considered to be a highly effective anitioxidant. Vitamin E has also been shown to play a part in the reduction of hot flashes associated with PMS and menopause, can reduce breast tenderness, and helps support normal heart health maintenance.
Soy is one the richest dietary sources of isoflavones available. Isoflavones are compounds which function as phytoestrogens (plant-based estrogens) in the body, providing health maintenance benefits from their subtle estrogen-like effects.
Dong Quai has been referred to as the female ginseng. Used in traditional Chinese culture, it is prescribed to help maintain proper female health related to menstruation.
Evening Primrose Oil
Evening Primrose Oil, also referred to as EPO, contains gamma linolenic acid, or GLA. GLA is a fatty acid that the body converts to prostaglandin, a hormone-like substance. It has been shown in studies to dramatically reduce the symptoms associated with PMS.
Wild Yam has many beneficial effects. It was discovered to play a role in the controlling of blood sugar levels. It also contains anitioxidant properties and possesses strong antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory qualities.
Vitex (Chaste Berry)
The use of Vitex dates back to the days of Hippocrates. It has been shown to offer relief from breast tenderness, cramping, headaches and acne, and promotes the proper level of prolactin, which can reduce the severity of PMS.
Also known as Shave Grass or Bottlebrush, Horsetail is rich in silicic acid and silicates. It also contains potassium, and over a dozen bioflavonoids.
Similar to Soy, Red Clover also contains high levels of isoflavones, well known for their subtle estrogen-like properties. Red Clover has been considered as a possible alternative to estrogen in some menopausal women.
Also known as Passion Flower, Passiflora has shown to contain flavonoids that have relaxing properties believed to help reduce the anxiety associated with PMS and /or menopause.
Valerian Root contains many essential oils that can have a calming effect. It has also been shown to have a positive effect on sleep quality without increasing total time spent asleep.
Sage has one of the longest histories of use as a dietary supplement. It is a leafy herb used for a variety of purposes, including helping control hot flashes. Some essential oils found in Sage are also considered to have powerful antioxidant qualities.
St. Johns Wort
St. Johns Wort is herbal-based mood regulator that has gained a great deal of popularity in the last few years. It works by inhibiting the reuptake of the nuerotransmitters dopamine, seratonin, and norepinephrine, allowing more of these nuerotransmitters to be available in the brain.
Vitamin B Blend
Featuring seven different B vitamins, Feminene™ packs a potent blend of these beneficial ingredients into each serving. Vitamin B deficiencies have been associated with a wide range of health challenges, ranging from moodiness to cardiovascular complications. Vitamin B6 and B12 also help reduce homocysteine levels, which has been shown to be a key risk factor in maintaining a healthy heart.
Women's Health in the 21st Century
Women's lives today can be especially challenging . As a 21st century woman,
finding the right balance of career, family, friends and commitments in
today's never-stop-moving lifestyle is a delicate process that can be easily
upset. Add the growing demands of maintaining proper female health to the
scene and the situation becomes even more demanding - especially for women
facing potential nutritional deficiencies, a lack of proper exercise, a
sedentary lifestyle and a stress-filled environment.
As if these challenges weren't enough, a large number of women also suffer the effects of Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS). Irritability. Bloating. Feelings of frustration. The desire to curl up on the couch with a purring cat, watch TV, and finish off that last box of chocolates.
The good news is that eventually, as you age, PMS - and your menstrual cycle - both stop. The bad news is that it is promptly replaced by menopause. Hot flashes. Night Sweats. Mood swings and depression. A brand new set of physiological and psychological aggravations.
Relief Strategies for PMS and Menopause
Today's women are becoming less and less comfortable with traditional medical treatments available for symptoms associated with PMS or menopause. From hormone replacement therapy to prescription drugs, some of the treatments - and some of the potential side effects - can be significant. For centuries, traditional Chinese and Indian medicine have used vitamins, herbs and other natural remedies for a wide range of ailments as well as for proper health maintenance. In fact, in the last decade, natural-based nutritional supplementation as an alternative way to maintain proper health has moved more into the forefront of American healthcare. Mounting scientific evidence indicates that a carefully planned nutritional and exercise program can help maintain proper health. Nutritional supplement sales continue to grow each year in and more and more women are choosing the natural approach to female health maintenance.
