Absolute Nutrition's Cambio de Vida - Product Review  Hot

 

Description

Absolute Nutritionís Cambio de Vida Menopause is an all-natural, safe formula for women experiencing perimenopause and menopause. This supplement contains the root and rhizome (underground stem) of the North American plant, black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa L.). Black cohosh has been used for thousands of years in Native American traditional medicine. It has been shown to be effective in relieving menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, irritability, mood swings and sleep disturbances.

Menopause is a natural transition from womenís childbearing years to later life. Perimenopause is the transitional state that can last for ten or more years before actual menopause begins. For many women, the hormonal changes of menopause and perimenopause can create uncomfortable symptoms including hot flashes, night sweats, sleeping difficulties, mood swings and breast tenderness.

Independent studies suggest that black cohosh offers natural, safe menopause and perimenopause support. In one study, researchers administered black cohosh extract, ERT (estrogen replacement therapy) or a placebo daily to 80 menopausal women for 12 weeks. They found that black cohosh improved anxiety, menopause and vaginal symptoms. Hot flashes were reduced from 5 to 1 a day. However, those taking estrogen continued to experience hot flashes up to 3.5 times daily. Many experts believe that black cohosh may be a safe and effective alternative to hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

Taking black cohosh extract, such as Absolute Nutritionís Cambio de Vida Menopause, can help you safely relieve menopausal and perimenopausal symptoms.


Pros

Menopause and perimenopause symptoms affect millions of women in the U.S. Black Cohosh has increased in popularity for treating menopause since the Nurse's Health Study released in 2002 stated hormone replacement therapy (HRT) may increase the risk for heart disease. Absolute Nutritionís Cambio de Vida Menopause can be a natural, safe alternative to HRT for menopausal and perimenopausal women.
Scientific studies have found that Black Cohosh benefits include:

  • Clinically proven, natural agent
  • Safe and effective
  • Reduces symptoms of menopause and perimenopause including hot flashes, night sweats, sleeping difficulties, mood swings, vaginal dryness and breast tenderness.

Cons

It still hasnít been scientifically confirmed whether black cohosh is a phytoestrogen (a plant that exerts the same activity as estrogen). Phytoestrogens may stimulate the growth of breast tumors. Studies have been limited with mixed results. Until more research is done, women with a history of breast cancer or at a high risk for breast cancer should consult with their healthcare provider before taking black cohosh.
Side effects may include abdominal pain, diarrhea, dizziness, headaches, joint pains, nausea, low blood pressure, tremors, and vomiting. Black cohosh is not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women.

Be aware that some drugs may interact with black cohosh including:

  • Tamoxifen
  • Anti-hypertensive (high blood pressure) medications
