Menopause Support (Formerly Vitex Combo)
Our Menopause Support is a tincture formula that does what its name suggests. Namely, it helps relieve the symptoms associated with that difficult time of transition in a woman's life.
- Hinged on black cohosh, a herb with phytoestrogenic qualities that works on the endocrine regulatory system, reducing hot flashes and night sweats
- With dong quai, which has been called "female ginseng"
- Includes chastetree, which works through the pituitary gland and acts as a hormone normalizer
- Has motherwort, a herb aptly named, as it has long been used for female reproductive disorders
- With memory-enhancing sage and adaptogenic rhodiola
- A formula complemented by burdock, which supports the liver and helps it clear excess hormones and reduce high estrogen levels
Use Menopause Support if you're a woman experiencing the uncomfortable symptoms of menopausal life changes.
