Throughout a woman’s lifetime, her body naturally goes through transitional hormonal states. These times of hormone imbalance often cause various physical and mental changes in a woman’s body. Keeping the body and mind balanced through the hormonal fluctuations of PMS and menopause is vital to maintaining an optimal quality of life. Full Moon was created to naturally support a woman’s body by establishing hormonal stability.
One of the ingredients in Full Moon, Wild Yam, is a rich source of natural progesterone. When ingested, the body easily and safely converts diosgenin into progesterone. Wild Yam helps to maintain a balance of hormones in the body.
Dong Quai is another main ingredient found in Full Moon. The Chinese have used Dong Quai for centuries to treat all female problems. Dong Quai has phytoestrogens that exhibit estrogenic activity. In fact, the phytoestrogens in Dong Quai are virtually identical to the estrogen produced by the body. The two molecules are so similar that the body can recognize the phytoestrogens from Dong Quai as its own estrogen – another example of nature healing nature! Dong Quai has the ability to balance estrogen levels, ease PMS symptoms, and relieve anxiety.
Each of the remaining herbs in Full Moon are well known for their ability to relieve menstrual related problems. Today we can choose healthier methods for correcting hormone imbalances and preserve the beauty and health of a woman.
