Menopause is a rite of passage in every woman’s life. Although it’s a natural event, the symptoms aren’t always what we expect. Treat fluctuating hormones at the source and ease into a new period. Our Meno tincture may support:
- Hot flushes
- Excessive perspiration
- Low libido
Menopause, perimenopause and postmenopause are stages in a woman’s life when her monthly period stops. This is the end of a woman’s reproductive years – almost puberty in reverse. Menopause typically occurs in your late 40s to early 50s and symptoms result from a decline of oestrogen and progesterone. Perimenopause can start 8 to 10 years before menopause. Monthly periods will become irregular and may become longer, shorter, lighter or heavier. As menopause nears, the ovaries no longer release eggs into the fallopian tubes, and you’ll have your last menstrual cycle. Menopause is the point when a woman no longer has her period for at least 12 months (without an illness or pregnancy). Symptoms vary in every woman but they can be intense and disrupt daily life. They may include hot flushes, night sweats, mood changes, concentration problems, sleep problems, vaginal dryness, weight gain and slowed metabolism.

Also known as Salvia miltiorrhiza (SM), this herb targets menopausal problems as it promotes heart and blood vessel health. Dan Shen appears to thin the blood by preventing platelet and blood clotting. It also causes blood vessels to widen, which can improve circulation. In a review article, Zhou et al. (2005) assume that the dried root of Salvia miltiorrhiza is a commonly used traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for improving body function (e.g. promoting circulation and improving blood flow). Dan Shen also supports insomnia due to palpitations or a tight chest. It’s been used in China to treat neurasthenic insomnia, because of its tranquilising effect. It decreases the release of norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin during brain ischemia. Studies have also have shown that SM could relieve postmenopausal symptoms and suppress bone resorption. Bone resorption rates are much higher in post-menopausal older women due to oestrogen deficiency related to menopause. Studies with rats have also shown that Dan Shen improves stress-induced menopausal depression.*

This herb is actually a berry. It helps invigorate and nourish many aspects of our being, assists in stopping excessive sweating related to hot flushes and is known to help settle the mind. Schisandra berries have gained a reputation as an anti-aging herb because they are particularly high in antioxidant compounds and other phytonutrients. It contains multiple active ingredients, including Schizandrin B, which enhances glutathione production from the liver. Glutathione is critical to protect the body from chemicals and toxins in our modern environment. Schisandra contains lignans to restore the nervous system, and even a mild phytoestrogen that protects the heart in post-menopausal women.*

Shan Zhu Yu has been used for at least 2,000 years in Chinese herbal medicine. It is a herb that ‘stabilises and binds’ and is used principally to reduce heavy menstrual bleeding and unusually active secretions including copious sweating or excessive urine. Also known as Cornus officinalis, the chemical constituents from terpenoids, flavonoids, tannins and furans provide it with a wide biological use including hypoglycemic, neuroprotective, heart-protective, hepatoprotective and nephroprotective activities. Shan Zhu Yu may also be efficacious against depression in postmenopausal women.*

Mu Dan Pi (MDP) is one of the most commonly prescribed single herbs for the treatment of psoriasis and other inflammatory symptoms. MDP, also known as Moutan Cortex Radicis, is a TCM derived from the root bark of Paeonia suffruticosa. Its bioactive components exhibit anticancer, antimicrobial and antioxidant properties and are widely used for the treatment of diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular and neurological disorders.*
