Planetary Herbals Botanical Approaches to Women's Health Care
Planetary Herbals has drawn on centuries of continued use, combined with the expertise and experience of modern clinical practitioners, to provide women with an array of formulas and single ingredients unequaled for supporting gynecological health. Planetary is featuring the following products in May.
Women's Dong Quai Treasure™: Dong quai is the primary botanical used by herbalists and naturopathic physicians to support women's reproductive and gynecological health. In Chinese herbalism, dong quai was seldom used as a single ingredient. Most often it was combined with other key botanicals, including peony, ligusticum, and rehmannia. It was this classic combination that contributed to dong quai's legendary reputation for maximizing the health potential of the female reproductive system.
Women's Dong Quai Treasure unites this classic Chinese combination with three primary herbs used in Native American traditions to support female health: cramp bark, blue cohosh, and false unicorn.
Menochange™ is a dynamic botanical combination, designed to support a woman's changing cycle. Formulated over a decade by herbalist and licensed acupuncturist Lesley Tierra, Menochange features black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa), and vitex, enhanced with select botanicals including dong quai and motherwort. Menochange offers you ten years of a leading herbal clinician's experience, integrated into one formula.
Full Spectrum™ Vitex Extract tablets and Vitex Liquid Extract provide two dynamic chaste berry products. Modern research suggests that vitex affects the hypothalamus and pituitary glands, thus influencing hormonal balance. Specifically, research suggests that vitex inhibits the secretion of prolactin, which in turn helps support a healthy menstrual cycle. The tablets combine a concentrated extract, standardized to 0.5% agnusides, with whole berries. Combining standardized amounts of important constituents with pure botanicals is Planetary Herbals' guarantee that all the important primary and secondary compounds are present.
