Herbs for Women:Make Informed Decisions
Today, women, more so than men, are taking greater personal responsibility for their own, and in many cases, their partner's, health outcomes.
Leading the category of herbs for women is the herb of choice for the relief of menopausal symptoms, which undoubtedly is Black Cohosh. Its track record leaves no doubt about its efficacy and you are unlikely to find herbal supplements for the relief of menopausal symptoms that do not include it. The benefits of Black Cohosh can be complemented with Wild Yam and Pasque Flower, and Chasteberry is another herb with a reputation for maintaining hormone balance during menopause.
Mood swings, and feelings of depression and anxiety associated with menopause are problem areas where Ginkgo Biloba and Pasque Flower have established therapeutic benefit
Other common herbal ingredients in supplements for women include green tea extract for its antioxidant properties, rhodiola for energy, the "super food" spirulina, the mineral and vitamin laden barley grass and wheat grass, and the versatile licorice root.
Before using herbal supplements claiming therapeutic properties specifically beneficial for women, find out what is in them and research the properties of their ingredients. Importantly, make yourself aware of any undesirable side effects they might have and interactions with other medications you might be taking.
These are simple precautions, well worth the effort because the information is readily available.
