How Chastetree Berry Balances Women’s Hormones

Chastetree berry supports the female hormonal system and is a key herb ingredient in NutriPlex Foods’ Female Health Daily. Current scientific literature, as well as a long history of use in traditional healing, supports the use of chastetree berry to help put the hormonal system back in balance.

The Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance

It’s very common for women, from puberty to menopause, to experience discomfort prior to their periods. The medical community has grouped accompanying concerns together and called them premenstrual syndrome. Symptoms vary in intensity from woman to woman, and may include breast tenderness, bloating, cramping, changes in body temperature, anxiety, headaches, and fatigue.

These symptoms are ultimately the result of a hormonal imbalance. This is usually brought on due to a lack of essential nutrients in the diet as well as environmental and emotional factors (such as stress, anxiety, depression, and others) that negatively affect the female hormonal system.

Chastetree Berry Helps Balance Hormones

Chastetree berry has been used for more than 2500 years in the Mediterranean region by natural healers to ease the effects of premenstrual difficulties. Like every plant that is used in healing, chastetree berry has an array of nutrients rather than just a single chemical of benefit.

Although chastetree berries are not a source of female hormones, their effect on dopamine — an important neurotransmitter that sends messages to the hormonal glands — leads to balanced hormones. By acting on the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland, chemicals in chastetree berries are said to change the amounts of estrogen and progesterone in the body.

When the hormones are in balance, many of the primary symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome and menopause are reduced or even completely eliminated.

How Chastetree Berry fits into Female Health Daily

Along with herbs Dong Quai and Black Cohosh, Chastetree berry is a key ingredient in Female Health Daily and provides a gentle and natural way to bring balance to the female hormonal system. Taking FemPlex on a daily basis will give your body the nutrients it needs to find harmony, energy, and equilibrium over the many phases of hormonal cycles.

A unique way to break down fats and cholesterol

The inability to use fats from our diets is one of the biggest health problems facing Americans today. Good fats power our nerves, brains, skin, hormones, and more. However, most of the fatty foods we eat are actually not easy for our bodies to process and we end up discarding the good along with the bad.

We need help breaking down fats like oils, butter, grease, and lipids. When we can’t properly process these substances, common symptoms occur including gas pains, indigestion, blocked arteries, poor hormonal health, nervous system problems, fatty liver, and gallbladder disease.

Get extra digestive support with ox power.

The job of properly processing fats, depends on a healthy digestive system. The human gallbladder contains a very powerful detergent called bile that is capable of breaking down stubborn fats into smaller particles to be used throughout the body, or to be eliminated if they are not useful. If the gallbladder and liver aren’t working up to speed or are overworked, reinforcements might be needed.

Ox bile is a little-known but very powerful ingredient that can be used to not only boost digestion power, but also break down cholesterol. Bile also helps absorb fat-soluble vitamins (vitamin A, E and D), and balance helpful bacteria in the digestive tract.

Find ox bile in Digestive Enzymes

Even though it can be extremely helpful for digestive problems, ox bile is not something you find on your average grocery store shelf. Fortunately, we’ve included it in our Digestive Enzymes formula along with pancreatin, beets, and other ingredients that aid digestion.

This little-known flower can restore your vital tissues

In formulating our Tissue Support supplement, we wanted to choose ingredients that are beneficial for supporting and regenerating tissues of the skin, internal organs, and the cardiovascular and respiratory systems.

With this in mind, we included wild pansy, a little-known flower that grows on the shores and islands along the Gulf of Finland. It also happens to have one of the highest concentrations of a helpful flavonoid called rutin.

Rutin – wild pansy’s powerful flavonoid

Rutin is a flavonoid, which is a food property that protects against health issues like coronary heart disease, cancers, eye diseases, lung problems, and inflammatory bowel disease.

When you eat foods rich in flavonoids, you provide our bodies with an array of antioxidants (molecules that defend against oxygen-robbers called “free radicals”). This protects the cellular integrity of your internal organs, blood vessels, smooth muscle tissues, and skin. Antioxidants also lend a powerful boost to the immune system.

Every flavonoid is a little different and rutin is especially good at targeting capillaries, strengthening blood vessel walls, and improving skin health and elasticity. This can be helpful with issues such as bruising, incontinence, and hemorrhoids.

Beyond Rutin – Additional Beneficial Phytochemicals

In addition to rutin, wild pansy includes other helpful phytochemicals like violutoside, violanthin, scoparin, orientin, violaxnathin, triterpene saponins, methyl-salicylic acid, flavonoids, tannins, coumarin. Each has powerful properties that protect our bodies against disease and destruction.

Find Wild Pansy in Tissue Support

Add wild pansy to your daily routine with Tissue Support to benefit skin, organs, and overall health. In addition to wild pansy, Tissue Support also includes many other flavonoid and anti-oxidant-rich foods such as dandelion, Shiitake mushrooms, echinacea, and bilberry.

5 Ways Beets Benefit Your Body

The nutrient complexes in beets are full of essential B vitamins, proteins, and antioxidants that support many vital body functions.

This is why we’ve made beets a key ingredient in our BFood Complex formula.

While there are hundreds of benefits from eating beets, here are five key ways they can keep your body running smoothly:

1) Beets detox your liver.

The liver is the body’s main organ for eliminating toxins ingested from personal care products, the environment, unhealthy food, as well as natural cellular processes.

The following nutrients in beets have been shown to cleanse and detoxify the liver:

  • Betaine helps liver cells eliminate toxins.
  • Pectin is a fiber that gets rid of toxins that the liver has already eliminated and keeps them from returning to the body.
  • Betalains are pigments with anti-inflammatory properties that encourage the detox process.

2) Beets promote digestion.

Bile is a key component in the digestive process. It is needed by the liver and gallbladder to break down fats into smaller particles to be used by the skin, organs, and nerves.

Beets are full of vital nutrients that support bile flow including betainemineralsvitamin C and B complexes, and more.

3) Beets help in the production of good cholesterol.

Good cholesterol creates hormones, allows nerves to communicate with one another, and enables the brain to function.

Key plant chemicals found in beets like folatevitamin Cpotassiummanganese, and more, promote healthful levels of good cholesterol.

4) Beets support cardiovascular health.

Eating beets helps prevent cardiovascular diseases in multiple ways, making conditions like atherosclerosis, heart attacks, and strokes are less likely to develop.

In particular, the presence of the nutrient betaine lowers the levels of homocysteine in the body which can also be harmful to the blood vessels.

The fiber in beets also works to strip excess LDL cholesterol from the walls and help to eliminate it from the body quickly.

5) Beets nourish the skin.

All foods that support the liver also support the skin. This is because the liver is the site of the production of good fats, vitamin Avitamin B12, and other essential substances that keep the skin moist, supple, and protected from the environment.

We’ve already shown how effective beets are at supporting the liver, thus, they are excellent nourishment for the skin as well.

Find Beets in BFood Complex

These are just a few of the many positive effects that beets have on our bodies.

How Cow Glandulars Boost Energy Levels

The key to boosting energy levels and reducing stress can be found in the adrenal glands of cows. Glands are bodily organs that secrete hormones. Clinical use of bovine adrenal glands by nutritionists have made clear their positive effects on the human adrenal system.

Our adrenal glands are under constant pressure

Our adrenal glands sit atop the kidneys and have much to do with providing energy. In times of sudden stress, the adrenals release a hormone called adrenaline that supplies immediate strength, speed, and energy. In response, the adrenals excrete a hormone called cortisol to lower stress.

However, when there’s excessive or repetitive stress, cortisol creates inflammation and wears out the adrenal glands — leading to chronic fatigue and low energy. Symptoms include always feeling tired, being overwhelmed by stress, or feeling like you’re blacking out when you stand up. More serious illnesses such as Addison’s Disease and Cushing’s Syndrome can occur as well.

Bovine glandulars replenish our adrenals

Consumed in the form of supplementation, bovine adrenal glandulars have been shown to replenish our adrenals and support all hormonal functions in the body. This in turn bolsters our energy reserves, reduces the strain of cortisol-triggered inflammation, and allows us to process and respond more efficiently to stress.

Adrenal Energy is the best source of bovine glandulars

The best way to support the adrenal glands is through quality supplementation with adrenal nutrition and vitamin C foods (acerola cherry).

These nutrients are contained in NutriPlex Foods’ unique product called Adrenal Energy, used by natural healthcare practitioners nationwide. Adrenal Energy, unlike other products, uses adrenal substances from free-range, drug-free cattle to avoid toxicity and to ensure maximum nutritional value.

Milligrams Don’t Matter

Forget About the Milligrams

When you pick up a bottle of, say, vitamin C at the store, there’s a nutrient panel that tells you how many milligrams of vitamin C each tablet contains. Good, right? — Not really.

You see, when there’s a listing of milligrams, or IUs, on a nutritional supplement, it means the nutrient you’re looking for was either extracted (or “isolated”) from a food or, even worse, made synthetically in a lab. You wouldn’t be able to count the number of milligrams of vitamin C in a product if it were made with an actual orange because every orange has a different amount of vitamin C in it — no two oranges are the same…

The problem is, when nutrients are isolated or synthetically created, the co-factors that would normally accompany them in the nutrients’ natural state are missing. And, in order for a nutrient to work in your body, it needs the entire complex with all of its co-factors.

Co-factors are helper nutrients that make it possible for a vitamin or mineral to be used by the body. Without co-factors, it‘s impossible for your body to obtain the full nutritional value from a vitamin or mineral.

But I notice a difference when I take 100 mg of vitamin C…

Sure you do. That’s because your system can force the vitamin C to work by stealing co-factors from other parts of your body — where they were being used by other processes — to make it effective. So, while the vitamin C might seem like it’s doing its job for now, there are consequences to pay: Side Effects.

Especially through prolonged use of synthetic or isolated vitamins or minerals, all this “stealing” of nutrients from other parts of the body takes its toll: Your body eventually runs out of its supply of certain co-factors and begins to break down.

“Whole” Means Never Needing to Steal

When you consume a vitamin or mineral in its whole food form, all of the co-factors needed to make the nutrients work in your body already come with it, as part of the package — they’re built into the complex, the way nature intended them to be — so there’s no need to steal them from other parts of the body, where they’re also needed.

We’re proud our whole food formulas don’t list milligrams

When you use NutriPlex Foods’ whole food supplements, you won’t find any milligrams or IUs listed on the bottle. When working with whole food complexes, you can forget about milligrams and focus on complete nutrition. And when you forget about the milligrams, you can forget about the side effects, too.

Taking a NutriPlex Foods “whole food” supplement means you’re getting an abundant supply of nutrients and all the co-factors they need to work. That’s why, on every one of our product pages, you’ll find a list of nutrients within the original food complex under the “Ingredients” subheading.
