This blend of standardized herbal extracts provides multifaceted support for the body during the hormonal changes that occur during menopause. PhytoBalance II contains phytoestrogens, natural substances in plants that bind to estrogen receptor sites and exhibit weak estrogen-like activity. Black cohosh helps maintain healthy levels of luteinizing hormone, allowing for optimal comfort and physical well-being. Preliminary studies suggest that sage extract helps support menopausal comfort, including hot flashes and night sweating. Vitex moderates prolactin secretion, possibly by enhancing the inhibitory actions of dopamine in prolactin-secreting cells. Grape seed extract is included to support cardiovascular and cognitive health. Research suggests the proanthocyanidins from grape seed promote menopausal comfort, as well as vascular integrity to support healthy blood flow.
