Menopause Relief Cream

Menopause Relief Cream

NOT A HORMONE CREAM -BALANCE YOUR HORMONES NATURALLY
75% of women experience symptoms associated with menopause

MECHANISM OF ACTION

The major ingredients in BioGest®, specialized extract of Wild yam herb, Rose geranium and Sage essential oils, have been individually used to help hormonal balance that may be upset by the effects of menopause.

The addition of vitamin E, Flaxseed oil and a homeopathic dilution of both Wild yam and progesterone, ensures optimal absorption and assists in production of the enzyme cascade to facilitate hormone balancing.

Symptoms of menopause occur because oestrogen and progesterone levels are out of balance. BioGest naturally helps your body to balance its oestrogen and progesterone levels with photo-oestrogenic essential oils, Rose Geranium and Sage that have a balancing effect on oestrogen levels, and therapeutic doses of a specialised extract of Wild yam herb, homeopathic Wild yam and homeopathic progesterone.

BioGest Menopause Relief has been on the market for 10 years, is safe, and does not have any known side effects. It is one of the few natural products shown to be effective in clinical research, backed by an independent, double blind, placebo-controlled trial..

CLINICALLY EFFECTIVE

A randomized double blind placebo controlled study of 23 menopausal women over a 5 month period was used to assess the effectiveness of BioGest Menopause Relief cream for the treatment
of menopausal symptoms.

Results showed that BioGest Menopause Relief cream is effective in the treatment of vasomotor (hot flushes and night sweats) and physical (particularly aching in muscles and joints, decrease in physical strength, feeling a lack of energy, and changes in appearance of texture of skin) symptoms of menopause. It was not shown to improve the psychosocial or emotional symptoms that are often associated with menopause.

This study highlighted the diversity of symptoms associated with menopause and supports the usage of natural treatments including BioGest Menopause Relief cream for the most common menopausal symptoms.
