Herbal Formula for Botanical Support for Menopause
Planetary Formulas MenoChange Cimicifuga-Vitex Compound is a comprehensive
botanical preparation, used to support a woman's changing cycle through menopause.
It contains a standardized black cohosh extract, along with wild yam root extract

Chaste tree berry (Vitex agnus-castus). These are combined with traditional
Chinese herbs, including dong quai, renowned for their ability to support a

The Hormone Balance
MenoChange - For A Positive Change. Naturally.
The "change". A challenging transition, with extensive emotional and
physical impact. Because the onset of menopause, beginning as early as age 40,
places unique demands on a woman, Planetary Formulas created MenoChange. This
comprehensive formula integrates the traditional wisdom of herbalists with modern
science. MenoChange combines proven botanicals and herbs to support a safe,
gentle and positive passage.
Estrogen stimulates, affects and balances hundreds of processes. When its level
fluctuates, the body's internal balancing act is profoundly influenced. Periods
become irregular, sleeping patterns change, and women often experience mood swings,
hot flashes or weight gain. The body vainly tries to compensate for estrogen loss
by releasing luteinizing hormone. This causes wild changes in skin temperature,
resulting in hot flashes and night sweats. MenoChange includes specific botanical
phytoestrogens that are structurally similar to estrogen. Research demonstrates
these phytonutrients may help to minimize luteinizing hormone release, thereby
reducing the frequency of hot flashes.
At the heart of MenoChange is black cohosh root (Cimicifuga racemosa) extract,
standardized to 2.5% triterpene glycosides, including 27-deoxyactein. This family
of beneficial compounds may help reduce the occurrence of hot flashes.
MenoChange is further formulated in a base of classic Chinese herbs, featuring
dong quai, the most important Chinese female tonic. Vitex berry (chaste
berry) and wild yam root are added from the North American and European herbal
traditions. Vitex berry, widely used in Europe for menopause, influences the pituitary
gland, which affects the body/s natural production of hormones.
Additional traditional herbs include bupleurum root, epimedium leaf, atractylodes
rhizome, white peony root, poria cocos, gardenia fruit, moutan peony root, anemerrhena
root, phellodendron root, motherwort leaf,ginger root & licorice root. Bone
health is a big concern for postmenopausal women as estrogen is well known to
affect calcium absorption and retention. Therefore MenoChange includes calcium
and magnesium citrate.
