Natural Menopause Supplements

Foundation - Your Starting Point to a Healthy Menopuase

Perimenopause and menopause is a complex process for women during midlife. In the past, it was known, quite appropriately, as "the change of life", as so many things change over this period of time. Estrogen levels drop. Menstruation becomes irregular and then ceases. Fertility departs. Hormonal balance alters significantly. For several years, the pituitary hormones in the brain, which control the reproductive cycle, fluctuate rapidly, causing sudden and frequent changes in body temperature and perspiration - the well-known hot flushes and night sweats. In addition, these hormones can trigger mood swingsbrain fogextreme fatigue, joint pain, the list goes on.

At the same time that all these changes are going on, a great many women are experiencing the busiest, most stressful, and most exhausting time of their lives. From the demands of work to the needs of schoolchildren (often in the teenage years, testing boundaries and knowing how to push our buttons!) and the care of elderly relatives, women often have it tough.  

Menopause supplements that work

Eventually, once we reach post-menopause, the body settles into its new hormonal balance while symptoms start to ease, this can take time, which is why our formulas were developed to support your body and your needs whichever stage you are at, be it perimenopause, menopause, or post-menopause. 


Good menopause health starts from the foundation up

We created Foundation to give you the perfect supplement foundation to support you on your journey of menopause health and is designed to be your starting point to help ease the troublesome symptoms of menopausal years. Containing powerful herbal actives supported by clinical science or strong tradition of medical use, this intensive formula helps maintain healthy hormone balance, both brain and reproductive; softens the sudden drop in estrogen by buffering with plant estrogens; increases stamina while having a calming effect; and promotes a smooth transition into a long, healthy later life.

Black cohosh as a menopause treatment

Black Cohosh has a long history of use and is famous among herbalists as a remedy for menopausal symptoms, particularly hot flushes and night sweats. This herb regulates the pituitary hormones, reducing the frequency and severity of hot flushes and sweats.

This review concluded menopausal women experienced a 26 percent reduction in their night sweats and hot flushes when supplementing with black cohosh. 

Chinese herbal medicine for menopausal symptoms

Astragalus is considered one of the great tonics in Chinese medicine. It is used to increase stamina and as an adaptogen (helping your body respond to stress and anxiety), and as an overall wellbeing and longevity tonic. As a bonus, it relieves spontaneous sweating as well the sweating of exhaustion, which is said to occur with the slightest physical exertion. It is a gentle herb, by no means weak, and highly respected by herbalists in both the East and the West.

Peony and Licorice are used together in traditional Chinese medicine to act as phytoestrogens to balance the reproductive hormones. As plant estrogens they have a mild hormonal effect in their own right, reducing the effect of the body's hormonal swings and easing symptoms. Peony is also a lovely calming herb, helping with mild anxiety.
