This product is temporarily unavailable. Imbalanced hormones can lead to a range of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), menstrual cycle irregularities, hormonal acne, and menopause symptoms. Some women have elevated levels of estrogen and low levels or progesterone, for example. To address those problems, these vegetarian capsules from Preferred Nutrition blend two traditional herbs (Saw Palmetto and Chasteberry) with two minerals (Zinc and Copper) involved in the production of hormones to balance the hormonal levels.
Product Notes:Saw Palmetto can compensate for that estrogen dominance by inactivating estrogen receptors and preventing the destruction of progesterone, and it also reduces how much of the natural skin lubricant sebum gets produced due to testosterone's activity in the process (which help clear up the skin, since too much sebum can clog pores and cause acne). Vitex or Chasteberry, the other traditional herb that's often used for these types of issues, has been shown to be able to increase progesterone production and balance estrogen and testosterone levels by affecting how much luteinizing hormone (LH) the pituitary gland produces, and inhibiting how much prolactin gets secreted.
