V-Estro™ Questions & Answers

Q
What are adrenal glands?
A

Adrenal glands are small triangular glands located on top of both kidneys. One of their functions is to produce sex hormones such as estrogen and stress hormones such as adrenaline.

   
Q
Why are adrenal glands important in menopause?
A

The ovaries, adrenal glands and fat cells all supply estrogen. Once a woman reaches menopause, adrenal glands and fat cells become the main sources of estrogen. Today’s poor eating habits and stressful lifestyles mean that many women reach their menopausal years with worn-out adrenal glands. Maintaining the health of adrenal glands supports both hormonal activity and the body’s ability to cope
with stress.

 
Q
What are the health benefits of phytoestrogens?
A

Phytoestrogens can inhibit rampant cell growth, activate rogue cell apoptosis and regulate the immune system. Soy is rich in phytoestrogens. Population studies have found a link between soy-rich diets and a low risk of breast, endometrial and prostate tumors.

 
Q
What are the health benefits of Chinese yam?
A

Herbalists recommend consuming Chinese yam as a remedy for fatigue, decreased appetite, diarrhea, shortness of breath, frequent urination, thirst and perimenopausal symptoms such as night sweats and mood swings. It also inhibits the formation of cellulite, fights DNA damage, and has neurological and heart health properties. The polysaccharide YP-1 in Chinese yam can help boost immunity by
stimulating T-cell proliferation. Dioscorin, found in Chinese yam, has antioxidant properties that fight free radical damage.

 
Q
What are the health benefits of sage?
A

Sage has immunity-boosting and antioxidant properties. Its tannins help to improve resistance against infection. It is rich in many nutrients and minerals, including vitamin K and calcium for building bones. Sage helps to reduce hot flashes and night sweats during perimenopause.

 
Q
What are the health benefits of raspberry?
A

Raspberries have around 50% higher antioxidant activity than strawberries and 10 times the antioxidant activity of tomatoes. Antioxidants help to protect against free radical damage, which is linked to many diseases. Ellagitannins, anthocyanins and vitamin C contribute to antioxidant activity in raspberry. Raspberry extract has been found to suppress rampant cell proliferation.

 
Q
What are the health benefits of ginkgo?
A

Ginkgo has been used to support heart, brain and lung functions for around 5,000 years. Ginkgo contains terpenoids, which have antioxidant properties and can help to improve blood flow by dilating blood vessels and reducing platelet stickiness. Ginkgo can ease memory lapses by improving blood flow to the brain. Studies indicate that ginkgo is helpful for perimenopausal effects of fatigue,
depression and memory problems and postmenopausal visual or cognitive difficulties. Ginkgo contains flavonoids, with antioxidant properties to help fight free radical damage. Ginkgo extracts may increase natural killer cell activity, boosting immunity. Ginkgo also improves oxygen delivery throughout the body; oxygenated blood has disease fighting properties. Ginkgo teas contain quercetin, which may inhibit estrogen-activated tumors.
