Maca is a root vegetable that occurs naturally at high altitudes in the Andes Mountains in Peru. Maca is traditionally used by Peruvians because of its beneficial effect on both physical and mental health. Maca is a so-called 'adaptogen'. Adaptogens are herbs that support the body in dealing with various physical and mental challenges and thus help to stay in balance. Human studies also show that maca has a beneficial effect on the body's own hormone balance during the transition, without having a phytoestrogenic effect. What many people do not know is that there are various types of maca, each with a different phytochemical composition and a different activity. The different types of maca are distinguished by the color of the root tuber (including yellow, red and black). Black maca is, due to the special ratio of the characteristic components of maca (such as glucosinolates and lignans), seen as a typical 'men-maca'. While yellow maca (with other glucosinolates) is more like 'women maca'. Maca-GO® is a specially developed maca concentrate, which consists of a special ratio of maca species that are most effective in supporting the hormonal balance during the transition. Maca-GO® is currently the only maca product that has shown a proven positive effect on the female hormonal system in human studies in women. Maca-GO® is manufactured by Natural Health Ingredients according to a unique production process. The unsprayed maca is treated with care so that the naturally occurring phytonutrients are retained. An additional production step also ensures that Maca-GO® can be optimally absorbed as a supplement.
The most commonly used herb in menopausal symptoms is black cohosh. This should not be missing in Women's Formula Pro 45+. Human studies show that black cohort can provide support for hot flashes, changing moods, irritable feelings and night sweats. However, good quality and standardization are of great importance here. The mechanisms of action of black cohosh are not yet entirely clear, but black cohosh does not contain phytoestrogens, as previously assumed. There are strong indications that it affects the endogenous opiate system and thus the hormone balance, body temperature and mood. It also regulates certain neurotransmitters that play a role in this. The silver cake extract used in Women's formula Pro 45+ is standardized at 2.5% triterpene glycosides, active ingredients from the rhizome of the plant.
Like maca, ashwagandha is a herb with a powerful adaptogenic action, which can help to stay mentally and physically in balance. The active ingredients in the root extract have a regulating effect on the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and provide a relaxing and soothing effect. Ashwagandha is often used in stress situations and in support of emotional stability. Women's formula Pro 45+ contains a large dose of the famous ashwagandha extract KSM-66® from producer Ixoreal. Fourteen years of research preceded the development of this special extract. For KSM-66® a specially developed extraction method is used (without toxic or environmentally harmful solvents). From this a broad spectrum extract is obtained in which the natural properties of the original plant have been preserved. Ixoreal also consciously chooses to use only unsprayed ashwagandha plants. In short, KSM-66® not only has the best quality, but is also the most researched and best-supported ashwagandha extract in the world.
