The nutrients in Harmony slow down the breakdown of estrogen in your liver, so you keep more of what you make
Potomac, MD (PRWEB) October 3, 2008
For the 6,000 U.S. women entering menopause each day (Source: North American Menopause Society), Harmony provides a fresh, new natural option to address their symptoms, according to Linda Werner, Vice President and General Manager of Women's Health at Healthy Directions.
"For the last 32 years, I've made it my personal crusade to research and find a safe, natural way to overcome the unpleasant symptoms of menopause," says Dr. Lark. "I've discovered eight specific nutrients women can take before, during, and after menopause that relieve those symptoms and I've put them together in my Harmony formula."
Harmony Hormone Balance for Women includes:
- Klimadynon-- This patented form of black cohosh from Germany was used in a double-blind, placebo controlled trial of 40-to 60-year-old women. The women who received this form reported an 80% reduction in hot flashes.
- Melatonin --Your pineal gland releases the hormone melatonin at night, helping you fall asleep. However, around age 40, melatonin levels begin to decline. Studies suggest supplementing with 300 mcg of melatonin--the amount you'll find in Harmony--can help you sleep better at night.
- Indole 3-Carbinol (I3C) -- Often found in cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli and cabbage, I3C is one of the few natural substances that influence your hormone levels directly, helping to bring them back into balance. Several studies suggest taking an ample dose of I3C (at least 300 mg) helps your body properly metabolize the estrogen you're still making. Harmony gives women 300 mg of I3C, the research dose, so they can control the breakdown of estrogen in their bodies.
- Para-Aminobenzoic Acid (PABA)--One of the best ways to help slow down estrogen metabolism is with PABA. Science suggests higher PABA levels help to reduce hot flashes, insomnia, and mood swings.
"The nutrients in Harmony slow down the breakdown of estrogen in your liver, so you keep more of what you make," says Dr. Lark. "It's the next generation of menopause support."
