Avlimil provides potent genistein isoflavones. If estrogen levels are low, these isoflavones are structurally similar to estrogen and help balance your body’s hormone levels. Isoflavones have been widely studied for their positive effects on menopausal health, including hot flashes, sweating, bone health, and cardiovascular function.
Black Cohosh Root
Originally found growing profusely in the Ohio River Valley, Black Cohosh Root was boiled by Native Americans to address women’s gynecological issues and used after childbirth. 19th Century American Eclectic Physicians (what we would today call naturopaths) believed Black Cohosh was the most useful solution to menstrual cramps.
Black cohosh root contains a natural estrogen that is similar to human estrogen and has been used for stress, menstruation and menstrual cramps, and to support healthy estrogen levels in women. Black cohosh root is the most popular herbal supplement in Europe for women experiencing premenopause symptoms.
Sage Leaf Extract
Sage leaf has a long history for its use as a medicinal herb. Sage leaf may help relieve mental exhaustion and enhance the ability to concentrate. Refreshed and alert, women can enjoy the physical and emotional pleasures of an active lifestyle.
Sage also contains estrogenic substances and contains an aromatic oil that makes it a powerful natural antiperspirant. This is especially useful in menopausal women plagued with sweating and hot flashes.
Red Raspberry Leaf
Red raspberry has been dubbed the “Vine of Female Vitality.” The leaf of the vine is the part that is most often used as herbal medicine. Red raspberry leaf is widely known for its normalizing effect on the uterus. Traditionally, midwives and herbalists claim that it also helps tone the ligaments of the uterus to ease childbirth and regulate menstrual flow.
