Menopause is the naturally occurring stage in a woman’s life, typically in her 40s or 50s, where the body starts producing less reproductive hormones, including estrogen and progesterone. This decrease in hormones can lead to many uncomfortable symptoms including:
- Hot Flashes
- Night Sweats
- Mood Swings
- Decrease in Energy
Instead of turning to synthetic hormones or prescription medications, many women first look to natural remedies and supplements to help treat their menopause symptoms. Many natural herbs and plants have been used to treat menopause symptoms for thousands of years, and even have scientific studies backing their effectiveness.
Below are 5 natural, science-backed remedies to try out if you’re looking for hormone-free and prescription-free menopause relief.
S-Equol, is a plant-based compound that shares a similar chemical structure with estrogen. Instead of raising estrogen levels (like prescription medications), it binds and activates estrogen-beta receptors to mimic the benefits of estrogen without the side effects.
Black cohosh has estrogen-like effects in some parts of the body but not in others, providing natural menopause symptom relief without the side effects. Black Cohosh can be used for multi-symptom relief from hot flashes, night sweats, sleep irregularity, and mood swings.
The German Commission E, a Federal Health regulatory body, similar to the FDA, has actually approved black cohosh as a treatment for menopausal symptoms.
Not all black cohosh is the same, however. This formula uses black cohosh standardized to contain 2.5% (or 500 mcg) of triterpene glycosides per tablet.
Clinical research shows that taking sage extract 300 mg daily for 3 months reduces overall symptoms of menopause, such as flushing, night sweats, palpitations, sleep problems, and memory, by moderate amounts when compared with placebo.
Evidence shows sage works by boosting hormonal response (specifically to prolactin and thyroid-stimulating hormones) in menopausal women.
In clinical studies, up to 83% of women taking 4 mg rhubarb extract report specific improvements in anxiety, hot flushes, sweating, sleep, mood, quality of life, fatigue, sexual problems, urinary tract problems, vaginal dryness, and joint and muscle issues related to menopause.
Red Clover appears to be especially helpful against psychological symptoms (mood swings, anxiety, and depression) and vaginal atrophy including pain, soreness, and irritation measured through vaginal cytology and patient questionnaires.
It contains plant-derived substances with estrogenic biologic activity. Genistein and daidzein are found in high amounts in red clover and have been linked in research studies to benefits against menopause symptoms.
