FemGuard + Balance Features:
Chaste Berry Extract (Vitex-agnus castus:
The most commonly
used herb worldwide to provide a balancing effect on
female hormones. Designs for Health, Inc. uses the highest quality
standardized Chaste berry material, which helps the body to
reach an improved balance of feminine hormone levels by promoting
the release of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in
subjects with low levels of production, while prompting a reduction
of FSH output in subjects with elevated production. This
balancing feature is characteristic of "amphoteric" herbs, which
are those herbs which raise or lower levels of a biomarker according
to necessity of the individual. The overall effect on most women
is an increase in progesterogenic effects, prompting more regular
cycles and a more optimal hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis
function. Recently isolated novel flavonoids from Chaste berry
exhibit antineoplastic activity1 and hypoprolactinemic effects.2, 3
Black Cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa):
used herbal compound in female health, it classically is used to
reduce menopausal symptoms by its gentle phytoestrogen action,
as well as its ability to mildly reduce the productionof luteinizing hormone. Luteinizing hormone levels (LH),
but not Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), are significantly reduced by black cohosh extracts. Black cohosh has been shown
to reduce hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness and thinning, sleep disturbances, and emotional symptoms in various studies.
4-7 Black cohosh extracts have been shown to potentiate the effects of tamoxifen. However, it has not generally been shown
to possess stimulatory effects on estrogen receptor positive breast cancer cells. Black cohosh has undergone extensive study,
particularly in Germany, and has been shown to reduce menopausal and premenopausal symptoms. The antispasmodic feature
of this herb can also relieve the cramping associated with menstruation.
Resveratrol (Polygonum cuspidatum): While this herb is most known for
its strong antioxidant, cardiovascular protective, and potentially anticarcinogenic properties, it is also included in this formula
due to its phytoestrogenic action. Resveratrol provides general antioxidant protection, as well as a safe hormonal balancing
effect, particularly in perimenopausal and menopausal women.
