PHYTOESTROGEN PLUS contains plant source ingredients with known phytoestrogen activity, including black cohosh, chaste berry, dong quai, red clover, and soy isoflavones. All these plant source ingredients are in the form of standardized extracts in order to guarantee potency. Phytoestrogen Plus also contains gamma oryzanol (a substance derived from rice bran that has the proven ability to reduce hot flashes) and Vitamin E. The ingredients are contained in a preservative-free gelatin capsule.
NUTRITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS & APPLICATIONS: Phytoestrogens are a group of compounds found in plants that influence estrogenic activity in the body. They either can act as weak estrogens or provide precursors for substances that affect estrogen activity. Phytoestrogens can bind to estrogen receptors in the body and exert either pro-estrogenic effects or anti-estrogenic effects on the target tissues. How phytoestrogens affect bodily tissues partly depends on how much estrogen the body produces (or retains) and partly on the saturation of receptor sites. When estrogen levels are low (as in menopause) empty estrogen receptor sites can be filled with phytoestrogens that can exert a weak pro-estrogenic effect (phytoestrogens may be anywhere from 1/400th to 1/10,000th the potency of estradiol). When estrogen levels are high (as in some women who suffer from PMS and endometriosis) phytoestrogens can compete with the body's own estrogen for binding to the receptors. When the phytoestrogens bind to receptors, they exert a weaker effect compared to when endogenous estrogens are allowed to bind. Gamma oryzanol and Vitamin E have been included in the formula in order to give a broader range of nutrients that can support body function. Phytoestrogen Plus is designed primarily to support women’s health during perimenopause and menopause, and also may be helpful for women experiencing PMS symptoms.
