EZestro™ is Edica Naturals' solution for when a woman is experiencing the unpleasant symptoms of menopause. It is a natural approach to managing this life process which every female experiences at some point in her life.

Menopause occurs for most women in their mid-forties to mid-fifties and occurs when the ovaries stop producing reproductive hormones such as estrogen. Estrogen is an extremely important hormone, it has a direct effect on the health of the uterus, mammary glands, menstrual cycle, lipid metabolism, collagen production and fat distribution.” It has been generally assumed that “these symptoms are associated with a decline in estrogen, but they are also indicative of a low thyroid function, especially night sweats and insomnia.” (1) The symptoms can range from mild to severe. Severity of the symptoms depends on the health of the woman’s adrenal glands and the levels of her thyroid hormones. Low levels lead to worse symptoms. It has been generally assumed that “these symptoms are associated with a decline in estrogen, but they are also indicative of a low thyroid function, especially night sweats and insomnia.” (1)

EZestro™ is a natural supplement for women going through perimenopause or menopause that alleviates symptoms without compromising overall health. It allows women to live a balanced and quality day to day life, free from the side effects of more traditional pharmaceutical therapies.

History of Menopause Treatment

References to menopause before the 20th century are hard to find. A French physician in 1821 first coined the term menopause leading to an increasing interest in female health during the mid 19th Century. In the 1930s people started describing it as a ‘deficiency disease’ and consequently a number of crude therapies were prescribed. Among other absurdities, the crushed ovaries of dead animals and semen from human males were both thought to be effective treatments for menopause. While prescriptions became less outrageous, it wasn’t until the 1970's that menopause was recognized as a legitimate medical condition. Menopausal symptoms were now ascribed to estrogen deficiency and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) became popular. Pharmaceutical companies then began production of menopausal medications.

In the 1970s the International Menopause Society was established. Following that was the formation of the ‘First International Congress on Menopause’ was organized in Paris, France in 1976. Various countries have since formed national societies on menopause. Oddly, the recognized symptoms of menopause differ throughout the world. In the West, menopause is characterized by hot flushes, in Japan it’s shoulder pain and in India weak vision is the hallmark of menopause. The age at which menopause begins is also higher in West compared to developing countries like India where 45-47 years of age is standard.

Characteristics of Perimenopause and Menopause

North America women usually develop menopause around the age of 52. Generally, there is a period of 8 to 10 years leading up to menopause called perimenopause. During this time women will often have irregular menstrual cycles and more severe cramping in addition to cramping outside of menstruation. Once menopause begins estrogen levels can fluctuate causing uncomfortable hot flashes. Skin can appear blotchy and increased heart rate can be experienced. As estrogen levels in the body decline, a woman’s internal thermostat tries to cool the body down and rebalance the hormones. This is called “flushing”. Additionally, erratic sleep, bloating and mood swings can be experienced.

Additional symptoms can include low libido, dizziness, vaginal dryness, depression, memory loss, difficulty concentrating, joint pain, headaches, nausea, high blood pressure, incontinence and an increased risk for heart disease due to declining levels of progesterone. (5)

Bone loss or osteoporosis is another common symptom of menopause. As collagen levels decline the bones weaken and low progesterone levels due to declining estrogen cause inflammation which prevents the body from rebuilding bone. The beginning of osteoporosis is known as “osteopenia”. During this initial stage bone can be strengthened through natural therapies and exercise.

Traditional Treatments

“The most common form of treatment for premenopausal women is the birth control pill, while treatment for menopausal women is traditionally hormone replacement therapy with estrogen.” (2 ) “ Ironically these common treatments allow estrogen to further shut down the thyroid, causing symptoms that further interfere with hormonal levels.” (3 ) When this occurs the thyroid no longer operates properly which in turn creates another list of problems for the menopausal woman. The hormones produced by the thyroid can no longer stimulate fat cells to burn fat. (4) Weight gain becomes a potential issue. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is the most common form of treatment for these midlife changes. It has many negative side effects which can include blood clotting, breast cancer, stroke and heart disease

EZestro™ to the Rescue

Now we come to EZestro™ – a natural, plant based, highly effective means of managing the challenges of menopause. The main ingredient in EZestro™ is Estro-G 100. Two of the standardized extracts this contains are Angelica and Cynanchum Wilfordii. These are formulated to relieve menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, vertigo, fatigue and vaginal dryness. They also support healthy blood pressure and improve cardiovascular health. In 2012, a study was released designed to evaluate the effectiveness of Estro-G 100 in managing menopausal symptoms. (10) The research trial was completed over the span of 12 weeks and “ … involved 64 participants - premenopausal, perimenopausal, and postmenopausal women”. (11) White Hispanic, white non-Hispanic and African American Women were randomly appointed to either the Estro G 100 group or the placebo group. Eleven symptoms were compared between the two groups of women after using Estro-G 100. The Estro-G group showed a significant improvement without any weight gain.

Menopause is a time during a woman’s life when sleep, day to day living, relationships and sanity may all suffer as a result of changing hormonal levels within the body. These negative side effects can be managed and even avoided all together. There is no reason to engage in unnatural therapies which have the potential to lead to other health problems. EZestro™ is a wonderful alternative for women going through physiological changes who wish to lead active and happy lives.
