Herbs to restore balance
Ashwagandha acts on the endocrine system (which produces hormones) by encouraging hormone balance and reduces hot flashes and anxiety.
Maca has hormone normalising effects and helps with hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood swings and sleep problems.
Lavender Flower helps to improve the quality of your sleep. During menopause progesterone levels decrease which is a sleep-producing hormone, making it difficult to fall asleep as well as stay asleep.
Cinnamon helps provide warmth to the body and is effective in helping to cope with hot flashes. It also helps to reduce insulin resistance, a common condition when the cells stop listening to the hormone insulin, resulting in weight gain.
Turmeric helps the liver to clear out old hormones, alleviating many menopausal symptoms.
Ginger has been used for centuries to help with hot flashes and night sweats and with its anti-inflammatory properties is can be effective in reducing body aches and joint pain sometimes associated with menopause.
