Finding our way through menopause


As women, we have two significant hormonal shifts in our life: the first being teenage puberty and then the change of life leading into menopause.  Although these are certainly natural transitions in life, they can be extremely challenging when our bodies have difficulty adapting to fluctuating hormones.

If you’re a woman, there is no bypassing menopause. However, the way a woman transitions depends on a number of factors, from her genetics and diet to her overall lifestyle. In modern day living, chronic stress can be a contributing and exacerbating factor that can make it potentially even more challenging.

Protracted levels of stress in the younger years can often contribute to a more difficult time transitioning into menopause. The list of symptoms of hormonal transition includes irritability, sleeplessness, hot flashes, vaginal dryness and headaches, just to name a few.

As you enter into perimenopause leading up to menopause, your ovaries slow down and produce less progesterone, testosterone and estrogen, forcing your adrenal glands into a back-up role.  If you are currently under stress or if you had significant stress when you were younger (particularly, chronic stress), your adrenal glands may not be functioning optimally and that is often when those nasty menopause symptoms rear their head.

We can mitigate against the symptoms and impacts of menopause by considering diet, supplementation and overall lifestyle, including everyday stress management tools such as exercise, yoga and meditation.

When it comes to supplementation, PURICA Rebalance Menopause Relief is a hormone-balancing formula that was specifically designed to help women maintain their quality of life through the physical and mental discomforts that can be typically associated with this phase of life. It helps to support the three key glands that work together to provide balance for a woman’s hormonal health; the adrenals, ovaries and thyroid.

PURICA Rebalance Menopause Relief contains a synergistic, proprietary blend of hot-water extracted herbs – Giant Angelica, Wilford’s Cynanchum and Sok-Dan  – working in tandem with three certified organic micronized mushrooms; Chaga, Cordyceps and Lion’s Mane. All the ingredients have been carefully assessed to ensure women derive the maximum benefit from the formula with minimal risk.

PURICA Chaga, which is grown in a certified organic facility and micronized for superior absorption and assimilation, is one of the featured ingredients in PURICA Rebalance Menopause Relief. It helps relieve stress, increases energy and promotes youthfulness of the skin, hair and nails. Meanwhile, Cordyceps helps enhance vitality, libido and immune response by providing all-important support for the adrenal glands. Lion’s Mane helps improve memory and cognitive response, along with digestion.

The proprietary blend of three hot-water extracted herbs – Giant Angelica, Wiford’s Cynanchum and Sok-Dan known as EstroG-100 — have been clinically shown to reduce the symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, nervousness, occasional sleeplessness and mood swings.

There is no question that menopause can be challenging. Yet by following this three-pronged approach of healthy dietary changes, lifestyle adjustments to manage stress and supplementation on the strength of natural products such as PURICA Rebalance, we can significantly help smooth the transition to embrace this new chapter in life.
