Uses For ProSoothe II
Menstrual Comfort and Support: Traditionally used and clinically studied, chaste tree provides significant beneficial support for the hypothalamus and pituitary via its balancing effects on hormone secretion. Research suggests that it mediates healthy luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) secretion and helps balance estrogen and progesterone. It also moderates prolactin secretion. Zinc’s role in cyclical hormone function is linked to its ability to maintain healthy prolactin secretion. Calcium plays a role in healthy smooth muscle function and cyclical comfort. Vitamin D has similar effects, attributed to its ability to promote healthy calcium levels, cyclic hormone function and neurotransmitter activity. Healthy intracellular magnesium levels have been associated with maintaining positive mood during the luteal phase. Magnesium also plays an important role in nervous system sensitivity, providing support for muscle comfort, breast comfort and occasional anxiety associated with the menstrual cycle. A number of studies indicate the positive effect of vitamin B6 on premenstrual mood as well as its crucial role in enhancing the effect of magnesium. Vitamin E research suggests that it helps lessen breast tenderness as well as nervous tension and fatigue associated with the menstrual cycle. Relora® may help diminish stress-related sugary snack cravings and support emotional wellness while rhodiola supports energy and mental function.*
