Menopause Ease Tea

Menopause is a transitional phase in a woman’s life and can often be uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have to be unbearable!

The nourishing tea blend below helps support menopausal women in many ways.

Red Clover Blossoms (Trifolium Pratense): Red clover is a flowering plant in the bean family (fabaceae) and is phystoestrogenic. A diet rich in phytoestrogens reduces the adverse symptoms associated with menopause. As the body’s estrogen level (and other hormones) begin diminishing, the estrogen receptors pick up the phytoestrogens and provide a continual source of natural estrogen that is released slowly. This creates a gentler easing into menopause and reduces hot flashes.

Milky Oat Tops or Oatstraw (Avena Sativa): this entire plant, from top to bottom, is rich in minerals and trace nutrients like silica, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, calcium and vitamin B. The calcium and magnesium support the health of the bones and is essential for menopausal women as osteoporosis risk increases during this phase of life. Oatstraw also moistens the glands, eases anxiety, and soothes the nerves.

Nettles Leaf (Urtica diocia): Nettles is a mineral rich plant that is revered for its ability to strengthen the adrenals, ease anxiety, naturally cool the body, increase overall energy and build the blood. When the blood is healthy it protects the bones and heart. With higher risks of both heart disease and osteoporosis for menopause and post-menopausal women, nettles leaf is an excellent herbal ally.

Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius): the benefits of taking ginseng during the menopausal years are cumulative – meaning, the longer you take it, the better you’ll feel. Ginseng has been used for thousands of years in Eastern medicine to increase stamina, boost brain health and memory, enhance libido and nourish the kidney yin. Ginseng can reduce the intensity and frequency of hot flashes, lift depression and regulate endocrine function. It’s not a cure-all, but it certainly has earned its status as a panacea.
