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. 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'. MacaHarmony® is a specially developed maca concentrate, which consists of a confidential ratio of maca species that are most effective in supporting the physical and mental balance of the woman. MacaHarmony® 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 extra production step also ensures that MacaHarmony® can be optimally absorbed as a supplement.
The herb monk pepper (Vitex agnus-castus) is known as one of the most important women's herbs. The extract from the berries of the monk pepper, used in Women's Formula Pro, is standardized on two of the typical ingredients, namely aucubine and agnusine. Monk Pepper has a harmonizing and regulating influence on the neuroendocrine system in general and on the female hormones in particular. It can provide support in that phase of the monthly cycle in which women may feel somewhat irritable or have alternating moods. Monk pepper is frequently used in various discomforts around menstruation, even in the regular world, thanks to the many scientific studies that confirm the effectiveness of monk pepper in women of childbearing age.
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 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.
One of the most precious spices on earth is saffron, extracted from the styles and stamps of the saffron crocus (Crocus sativus). Saffron is best known for its culinary application to give dishes a rich taste and color. But saffron has also proved its great value as a food supplement. Various studies show that the use of saffron extract contributes to a positive state of mind. Affron®, the saffron extract in Women's Formula Pro, is made from unsprayed saffron that is grown in Spain under strictly controlled conditions. Only then is it possible to obtain a pure extract of the best quality and with the highest content of active ingredients. Affron® contains a high content of Lepticrosalides®, the name given by the producer to the spectrum of active ingredients in their saffron extract, including safranal, crocine and picrocrocine. The effectiveness of Affron® is substantiated with multiple human studies.
