PhytoBalance II is a standardized herbal formula designed to provide multifaceted support for the body during the hormonal changes that occur during menopause and menstruation. This formula contains phytoestrogens, natural substances in plants that bind to estrogen receptor sites and exhibit weak estrogen-like activity. Black cohosh helps maintain healthy levels of luteinizing hormone, allowing for optimal comfort and physical well-being during menopause. Chastetree is used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve symptoms associated with menopause, such as hot flushes. It helps maintain healthy prolactin secretion and may also promote healthy dopamine levels. In addition, black cohosh and chastetree are used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve premenstrual symptoms. Chastetree is also used in Herbal Medicine as a hormone normaliser to help stabilise menstrual cycle irregularities. It has been associated with promoting healthy menstrual luteal phase length and menstrual regularity for some women, helping to maintain healthy reproductive system function.
