Natural Female Support by Life Extension
Life Extension Natural Female Support
For many years, women had limited options for relieving menopausal symptoms. Those who advocated safer approaches were vindicated when clinical studies confirmed that synthetic estrogen-progestin drugs increase risk of breast cancer, stroke and other diseases.
Fortunately, natural plant-based extracts have been discovered that reduce menopausal complaints and support healthy estrogen metabolism during menopause and beyond. These findings have resulted in a new proprietary formulation combining a patented hops extract with a super-standardized lignan (HMRlignan™).
Menopause, Hot Flashes, Postmenopausal Women
This patented hops extract contains a phytoestrogen (8-prenylnaringenin) that offers natural female support during menopause.*2 In two human clinical trials with this special hops extract, menopausal women experienced significantly fewer hot flashes along with improvement in a variety of other menopausal complaints.
This hops extract (called Lifenol®) has been combined with HMRlignan™ to make it even more useful. A recent study indicated that postmenopausal women using 50 mg HMRlignan™ daily over 8 weeks experienced a 53.5% reduction in hot flashes as well as a reduction in other common menopausal complaints.5 In addition, clinical data suggests that a lignan-rich diet supports breast health.
Estrogen, Menopausal Symptoms, Menopausal Complaints
Life Extension’s new Natural Female Support offers powerful nutritional support to help decrease menopausal complaints and maintain healthy estrogen metabolism during menopause.
For optimal benefit, in addition to standardized extracts of hops and plant lignans, Life Extension recommends postmenopausal women take a variety of nutritional ingredients like curcumin, cruciferous vegetable extracts (e.g., sulforaphane, carnosic acid), omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D and calcium-D -glucarate to support healthy estrogen metabolism and cellular integrity.
