San Francisco CA (PRWEB) October 29, 2010
Femmenessence, the commercial name for a highly concentrated ingredient, Maca-GO® has demonstrated improvements in hormone production in post menopausal women such as estradiol, progesterone, thyroid, adrenals, as well as a reduction in FSH and cortisol.
The release of the Journal of the American Medical Association publication last week entitled, Estrogen Plus Progestin and Breast Cancer Incidence and Mortality in Postmenopausal Women, has again raised concerns over the safety of hormone replacement therapy. Further emphasizing the need for more research into new, safe alternatives that address the underlying cause of hormone loss in women, rather than just introducing exogenous hormones into the body to partially appease the problem.
Femmenessence has been developed as a result of research into supporting the body’s own production of hormones through the Hypothalamus Pituitary Adrenal Axis, addressing the actual cause of these issues, the body’s own production of all hormones.
Doctors are already finding that patients on Femmenessence may not need Hormone Therapy at all or much lower levels for even shorter periods of time, thereby reducing risk and providing women with an option to support them throughout the last 50 years of their lives, not just a few years while on Hormone Therapy.

The research also demonstrated that the improved hormone and metabolic function resulted in the exact health benefits we would expect from improved hormone balance of increases in HDL and bone density in conjunction with reductions in LDL, triglycerides and body weight.

NOTES TO EDITOR
- There is considerable debate over the Women’s Health Initiative data which focused on Premarin, an equine estrogen and synthetic progestin hormone therapy, in higher doses and for a longer duration than the standard protocol currently being used by US doctors. Research has shown that estrogen only treatments don’t seem to increase the risk of breast cancer, although, in women with a uterus this therapy raises uterine cancer risk by five times. A French study, published in 2008, did not detect an increased risk of developing breast cancer with the use of bio-identical estradiol and progesterone. In light of this conflicting data there is a critical need for alternative options that can support a woman’s own hormone production, balance her pre-menopausal hormones to potentially delay onset of menopause and support her foundational health throughout menopause and beyond, without administering potentially harmful, exogenous hormones.
- Slowing the onset of menopause, or improving a woman’s transition, is not out of the realm of possibility. Women in many cultures do not experience the change or symptoms as early, or as dramatically, as those in the United States, with diet and lifestyle appearing to be key influencing factors. Furthermore, modern medicine continues to discover the ability to “turn back the biological clock” as shown by findings in a study demonstrating the ability to grow new brain cells into old age through regular exercise. Bone density can be increased, high cholesterol levels reversed and blood pressure regulated through nutrition and exercise, even into old age. Additionally, it appears expression of certain genes that increase susceptibility to adverse health conditions can be prevented in children, through preconception health of parents.
- To date, the well-known traditional, natural alternatives have not proven to be the solution. Soy, red clover and black cohosh only have a 45-60% success rate at reducing menopausal symptoms, predominantly hot flashes and night sweats, with limited impact if any, on vaginal dryness, loss of libido, mood and energy. This is due to their lack of effect on the body’s own hormone production, which is the causative, core issue. It is this dramatic loss of hormones during menopause that not only initiates menopausal symptoms, but also increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and bone density loss. National statistics emphasize a woman’s risk for cardiovascular disease, the number one cause of death, which increases drastically at menopause and doubles with early menopause (prior to age 46). Also, women lose on average 7-10% of their bone density in the first 3-5 years of menopause, which has been relatively unchanged for the previous 25 years of her life.
