EstroMend, provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a synergistic blend of herbs that support healthy estrogen receptor function, healthy metabolism of estrogens, and functional mimetics of estrogen. This soy-free combination is designed to support healthy estrogen function in bone, heart, brain, breasts, vagina and other estrogen sensitive tissues.† EstroMend is a Hormone Specific Formulation provided by Douglas Laboratories and formulated by Dr. Joseph J Collins. EstroMend was created to support the optimal function of specific hormones through the use of hormone specific adaptogens, hormone specific agonists and hormone specific functional mimetics. This formulation may be used as part of a hormone health program with dietary and nutrient support. In addition, this formulation may be used by clinicians as an adjuvant to support optimal hormone health in patients who have been prescribed bioidentical hormone therapies.
FUNCTIONS The primary functions of EstroMend are to support the natural production of estrogen and support how tissues throughout the body respond to estrogen. This is accomplished by supporting the function of estrogen producing glands, and by supporting the function of estrogen responsive tissues through the use of herbs that have phytoestrogen properties and t mimic the actions of estrogen. The synergistic combination of specific herbs in EstroMend support important functions associated with optimal estrogen health and support symptoms of low estrogen levels, such as menopausal, gynecological, memory, mood, sleep, urinary, and vasomotor. 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.
INDICATIONS 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.
