Two basic types of herbs for menopause


Phytoestrogenic herbs


These are the herbs or plants that contain natural phytoestrogen, a type of chemical compound, which is similar to the women body estrogen. These herbs work by replacing the lost natural body estrogen with the plant hormones, phytoestrogen. Aside from this, there are other elements of phytoestrogenic herbs that are considered beneficial to menopausal women such as amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Generally, these herbs are an alternative to disorders relating to low hormonal/estrogen levels.


Most popular phytoestrogenic herbs:


· Ginseng. Used to improve your overall vitality and energy, this is a dried root from one of the Araliaceae herb species.


· Ginkgo. Used to enhance memory, prevent memory-related diseases such as Dementia, Alzheimer’s and others. This herb is one of the oldest herbal medicines used in China.


· Dong Quai. Most effective in treating gynecological complaints caused by the change in hormonal production.


· Red Clover. Diseases treated are skin disorders and bronchitis, asthma and spasmodic coughing.


· Black Cohosh. Symptoms treated include depression, night sweats and hot flashes.


Non-estrogenic herbs


In contrast with the phytoestrogenic plants, non-estrogenic herbs, as the name suggests, are those plants that do not produce estrogen chemical structures. These plants are widely recognized by the doctors and medical experts because of their effectiveness to relieve women’s menopause symptoms. Furthermore, they are considered completely safe and do not provide side effects.


The right non-estrogenic herbs contain nutrients that can nourish endocrine system, eventually balancing your hormonal levels. With the proper application, occurrences of the loss of hormones will be reduced as they can promote your body to naturally produce the needed healthy level of estrogen hormones, without the distracting side effects.


Specifically, non-estrogenic herbs will provide relief to the following disorders relating to menopause symptoms:


- majority of the menopause symptoms


- hormonal imbalance


- osteoporosis or bone mass loss


- infertility


- sexual intercourse problems


- cardiovascular disease


It is important to note, however, that even these herbs are a natural treatment you need to research on the kind of plant that you are going to take as not all of these will relieve and alleviate you from those menopause symptoms. There are herbal plants that can cause many other side effects, may it be minor or major.
