How it works

Most women experience menopause between 45 and 55 years of age.

It’s a gradual process that leads to the end of the monthly period, and in turn the reproductive years. The hormones oestrogen and progesterone fluctuate during this time and periods become lighter until they eventually stop.1

Many women experience menopausal symptoms, some of which may include:

  • Hot flushes
  • Poor sleep
  • Irritability
  • Aches and pains1

Black cohosh: traditionally used to relieve menopausal symptoms

Black cohosh relieves a wide range of menopausal symptoms including hot flushes, irritability, mood swingsdisturbed sleep and mild rheumatic aches and pains based on its traditional use in Western herbal medicine.

Dong quai: traditionally used to enhance blood health

As well as being used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to reduce menopausal symptoms, dong quai is a blood tonic that’s traditionally used to invigorate Jing (also known as kidney essence).

According to TCM philosophy, Jing is a form of life force energy that’s stored in the kidneys and declines with age. This is one of the reasons that a healthy kidney organ-meridian system is considered the foundation of good health in Chinese medicine, especially during times of transition between life stages, including menopause.

Vitex: traditionally used to maintain healthy reproductive hormones

Vitex is a herb used in traditional Western herbal medicine during menopause to maintain healthy reproductive hormones.
