Hormone Harmony

Pre-menstrual Syndrome (PMS) can be a profoundly debilitating time before menstruation. For some women the effect on their mood can be so overwhelming, that their condition is often diagnosed as PMDD (Pre-Menstrual Dysphoric Disorder) which is treated in part with anti-depressants.

Even though medical literature describes the causes of PMS as cyclical hormone dysfunction, neurotransmitter dysfunction and underlying depression, it is rare that hormones are investigated and treated specifically to restore peace through emotional and physical balance.

The ingredients in Hormone Harmony have been carefully chosen to reduce pre-menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhoea) and depression, while enhancing metabolism of oestrogens and promoting progesterone to assist with fluid retention, weight gain, anxiety and breast tenderness. The delicate balance of ingredients, can provide a smooth transit through the pre-menstrual phase of a woman’s cycle.

Well, what is in Hormone Harmony?
Hormone Harmony has four ingredients, two lower oestrogens through different mechanisms, one promotes progesterone often low in PMS and one relieve dysmenorrhoea (pain and discomfort) some women suffer pre-menstrually.

Let’s zoom in…
From decades of clinical experience in integrative medicine, our medical inventor of this product has found by improving the balance of progesterone to oestrogens, many pre-menstrual symptoms are alleviated. How is this achieved?

Calcium-D-Glucarate (C-D-G), is D-Glucaric Acid bound to a small amount of calcium as an inactive co-factor. This is not a calcium supplement and the biological effect of lowering the oestrogen tide is driven by D-Glucaric Acid facilitating a phase 2 liver detoxification process Glucuronidation. Glucuronidation naturally metabolises chemicals and fumes as well as oestrogens and androgens.

The other oestrogen lowering component is Cyperus which inhibits the conversion of testosterone to oestrogen as well as blocking the oestrogen receptor alpha receiving oestrogen. Simply said this blocks the symptoms of oestrogen dominance being anxiety, agitation, poor sleep, weight gain fluid retention, breast tenderness and other symptoms.

Apart from lowering oestrogen, how can one boost progesterone where low levels are associated with similar symptoms to oestrogen dominance mentioned above? Chaste berry or Chaste Tree also known as vitex agnes castus has shown to increase progesterone while also having a anti-depressant effect.

Lastly Curcumin in a high bio-available BCM-95 formula has an anti-inflammatory effect blocking the production of pain inducing prostaglandins and other pro-inflammatory cytokines and nuclear promoters of inflammation like Nuclear Factor kappa beta (NFKB) while also helping with depression.

At Life Source we understand that each woman’s journey through the pre-menstrual phase of their cycle may be different and we provide individualized support for ‘Hormone Harmony’ dosing and feedback.

GYNOSTEMMA may also assist in reducing insulin resistance, lowering blood insulin levels, lowering blood sugar levels, lowering fat mass and indirectly reducing androgenic signs and symptoms, raising AMPK production important for insulin sensitivity, common feature of PCOS is insulin resistance. CHROMIUM helps insulin receptor sensitivity by: potentiating the actions of insulin, promoting insulin signaling pathway, reducing the negative-regulators of insulin signaling, enhances AMPK activity.
