Hot flashes, mood swings and other discomforts stem from hormone imbalances. But, such imbalances don't just happen. As menopause nears, the ovaries begin to shut down. This leaves your adrenal glands as your only source of progesterone. If your adrenal glands are in perfect health, you'll make enough progesterone, under normal circumstances, to maintain hormone balance. If not, you will be progesterone deficient. Dr. John R. Lee (What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause) believes that nearly all hot flashes, mood swings, night sweats and other related problems are caused by adrenal related progesterone deficiency, or by excesses of estrogen that are caused by the estrogenic chemicals found in plastics.
While hormone balancing factors (like hesperidin and isoflavones) can help calm hot flashes, mood swings, night sweats and so on, they do nothing to strengthen the adrenal glands. Hot flashes, mood swings and so on are bad enough; adrenal weakness can also cause far worse problems in the future. Thus, it is vital to address this aspect of menopausal distress.
As a multiple, ProFema™ provides a complete array of vitamins and minerals. It also provides an ideal blend of calcium and magnesium to build strong bones. It is a complete green food complex, so that you'll have more energy than you've had in years. And, it provides the isoflavones and herbs you need to relieve your discomforts now!
But, unlike any other product we know of, it also provides the Superior Herbs that help rebuild strength in the adrenal glands. Because of that, it helps you feel not just better, but your very best, while also guarding against more serious health challenges in the future. There is simply nothing else in the world like ProFema™.
If you already use a multiple and don't want to change, or have problems taking certain vitamins or minerals, use Transitions™ instead of ProFema™. It is the same herbal formula as ProFema™, but without the vitamins, minerals and other factors.
The adrenal glands are the body’s weapons to help us survive dangerous situations. They secrete hormones that enable us to run more quickly or fight more fiercely, and thus increase our chance of survival when danger is present. Unfortunately, however, the modern world presents us with dozens of “stressors” each day. Any time we feel threatened or pressured, the adrenals kick in. Even loud or unpleasant noises – like car horns, sirens, alarm clocks, etc. – trigger the stress response. This constant adrenal activation undermines adrenal health, and causes energy shortages, fatigue, hormone imbalances, weight gain (especially around the belly), difficulty sleeping, lack of libido and a host of other symptoms and conditions that can range from mildly annoying to wholly debilitating (please see full brochure).
Although modern medicine fails to recognize anything short of full blown Addison’s disease as adrenal fatigue, exhaustion or insufficiency, natural health practitioners see it as a major problem in modern life. And, the only way to deal with it is by avoiding stress, employing relaxation techniques, eliminating foods and other outside agents that trigger an adrenal response (like sugars, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco and recreational drugs), and using nutritional factors that help rebuild adrenal integrity.
The best nutritional factors for rebuilding adrenal strength are botanicals. The best of these botanicals are Cordyceps, Ashwagandha, Holy basil, Rhodiola, Schizandra and Eleuthero (Siberian ginseng). Together, these plants provide countless phytochemicals that rebuild adrenal energy, counteract the physiological effects of stress and renew adrenal integrity.
As with all Pure Essence products, AdrenalEssence™ provides the most potent botanical blends money can buy. While gentle in the ways they work, they are powerful in their ability to work. Each day’s use (2 capsules) of AdrenalEssence™ provides over 31,900 mg of raw botanical power. This is over five times more herbal value than the nearest competitor, and the reason that AdrenalEssence™ will change your life, more quickly and more completely than any other adrenal supplement you’ll find.
The calcium that is vital for strong bones can reach your bones only when sufficient magnesium is also present. When calcium does not reach the bones, it can form plaque in your arteries, spurs on your bones, and stones in your kidneys. It can also cause calcification of brain and other tissues.*
While the dairy industry, modern medicine, and much of the dietary supplement industry tell us we need 1500 mg of supplemental calcium per day, research reveals that the world's strongest bones are built on less than 200 mg of calcium per day, and that cultures with the highest consumption of calcium also have the world's highest rates of osteoporosis.*
The problem, however, is likely not too much calcium, but instead not enough magnesium. Cultures with high rates of osteoporosis get only about 200 mg of magnesium per day and those with the healthiest bones get at least 500 mg of magnesium. The average consumption of magnesium in the United States is less than 200 mg per day.*
Ionic-Fizz™ Calcium Plus is a delicious beverage (actually, a powder you mix gently into water) that provides the world's best-absorbed calcium and magnesium in the ratio that best supports bones. Because its minerals enter the body in ionic form, they are absorbed better than any others you'll find. This product also provides every co-nutrient required for strong bones. It is, in short, the finest bone support supplement ever made. It can be used with any of our vitamin D series products, and with any multiple that does not supply more than 5000 IUs of vitamin D per day.*
Stress is a major factor in modern life. Getting several kids to separate places all at the same time, financial concerns, domestic duties, disagreements, pressures at work, health problems, and other threats to our well being are nearly constant issues. While the body is equipped to deal with these issues on an occasional basis, we were not designed for constant stress.
When we feel threatened or are under pressure, the adrenal glands secrete hormones that help us run more quickly or fight more fiercely, thus increasing our chance for survival. However, as we enter survival mode, normal metabolic processes like immunity, digestion, bone building and reproduction are put on hold. Thus, the more pressure we are under, the less energy our bodies give to daily life needs.
CalmEssence™ provides 150 mg per day of pure L-Theanine (Suntheanine®), an amino acid from green tea that studies have shown promotes a sense of calm, even under extreme pressure. It also provides Honokiol, a phytochemical from Magnolia bark that helps us remain calm. These factors may help reduce the frequency of the stress response being triggered in your body. They may also reduce the intensity of stress responses when they do occur. Any reduction in the amount and/or intensity of stress response is a step toward better health.
CalmEssence™ also provides Ashwagandha, Eleuthero (Siberian ginseng), Schizandra, Rhodiola and Cordyceps, which, combined, provide the most profound adrenal support you’ll find in any supplement. These botanicals rebuild adrenal energy, counteract the physiological effects of stress and renew adrenal integrity. In cases where adrenal exhaustion, or its symptoms (please see full CalmEssence™ and AdrenalEssence™ brochures) are considered severe, CalmEssence™ and AdrenalEssence™ can be used together until you begin to once again feel your best. Then, you can choose between these two products, depending on which you feel helps you feel more like your old self.
