This soy-free combination is designed to support healthy estrogen function in bone, heart, brain, breasts, vagina and other estrogen sensitive tissues. EstroMend may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals who wish to support healthy estrogen function and help to mitigate symptoms associated with low estrogen levels.
EstroMend is a Hormone Specific Formulation formulated by Dr Joseph J Collins and provided by Douglas Laboratories®, created to safely support the optimal function of estrogen through the use of hormone specific adaptogens, hormone specific agonists and hormone specific functional mimetics. This formula may be used as part of a hormone health program with dietary and nutrient support. In addition, this formula may be used by clinicians as an adjuvant to promote optimal hormone health in patients who have been prescribed bioidentical hormone replacement therapies. Pueraria & Trifolium provide isoflavones that support 2-hydroxylation, glucose utilization and bone health. Phytoestrogens that mimic the functions of estrogens without proliferative actions, include Cimicfuga, Humulus, and Salvia which support and minimize the changes and symptoms that are sometimes experienced during menopause. The phytoestrogens found in Dong Quai also help to increase vaginal lubrication by maintaining mucus tissue health. Adaptogens with nootropic and neuroprotective properties such as Bacopa, Centella, Salvia and Schisandra support cognition, memory and the facilitation of learning; functions associated with optimal estrogen function.
