Good to know
Hormones are vital chemical messengers that send signals to the body each and every day telling it to perform both mundane and extraordinary tasks. They stimulate, regulate and control virtually all biologic processes from sexual reproduction, to immune function, growth and metabolism. Hormones signal huge changes in our lives such as puberty, pregnancy and menopause.
With age comes a process of hormonal decline where women experience the decline of oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone. This gradual hormone failure has a huge impact on our general wellbeing. Physical and psychological symptoms such as bone thinning, memory loss, low libido, hot flushes, fatigue and depression are common and have been endured by many.
Rebalance is a supplement that can help you through these critical years and can help you embrace change with a positive mindset.
Soya Isoflavones: The active ingredient in soy is isoflavones which mimic the female hormone oestrogen. They are called phytoestrogens (plant derived) and are thought to help reduce the symptoms of menopause, especially night sweats and hot flushes. Isoflavones also have a protective effect on the breast, bones, cholesterol (total and LDL) and the cardiovascular system. The ideal dose has been shown to be 50mg/day.
Red Clover (Trifolium Pratense) contains all four of the specific isoflavones (plant oestrogens) that have been shown to be most beneficial to the human body – genistein, deidzein, formonentin and biochanin A. Taking a dose of over 80mg a day has been shown to reduce nights sweats by 75% and can relieve insomnia in menopausal women. It is also thought to have a protective effect on the heart and bones.
Sage is a fantastic herb that has been used medicinally for hundreds of years. Sage is an antiseptic and an anti-inflammatory and acts to regulate the body’s thermostat helping with night sweats and hot flushes. Sage is also known for its ability to help boost memory, cognition and general well being.
Zinc – Zinc is an essential micronutrient helps the normal functioning of the immune system and maintenance of healthy skin, nails, hair, vision, bones and memory. The WHO reports zinc deficiency is 31% globally and is surprisingly common in the western world. Poor diet, stress and lack of proper absorption are key causes of zinc deficiency. We all require daily zinc to stay alive, hence its status as an ‘essential’ trace element. Zinc is a key structural component for many hormone receptors and proteins that help contribute to healthy mood and immune function.
