How Meno-Myze Works
Menopause is the end of the reproductive years for women. Progesterone and estrogen levels are low which may impact hormonal responses. 3,4 Vasomotor responses such as hot flashes are the most common sign of this transitional period, but some women may experience sleep disruptions, concerns with cognitive performance, and mood disturbances. 3
The foundational ingredients of Meno-Myze are a proprietary herbal blend known as EstroG-100® containing Angelica gigas nakai root, Cynanchum wilfordii root, and Phlomis umbrosa root. The coumarin compounds in Angelica gigas nakai root help support healthy stress responses and may promote healthy nerve and cognitive functions. 5,6
The high contents of total phenol and total flavonoids found in Cynanchum wilfordii root support healthy vasomotor responses. 7,8 The phytoestrogens found in Phlomis umbrosa root help support healthy bone metabolism. 9,10
Ashwagandha and black cohosh round out the Meno-Myze formula. Clinical research demonstrates their combined effects on healthy vasomotor response. 11 Ashwagandha supports healthy vasomotor response due to its adaptogenic activity and anxiolytic effect. 12,13 The phytoestrogens in black cohosh promote healthy vasomotor response without binding to estrogen receptors or having estrogenic effects. 14,15
