Beginning in the mid to late thirties, important changes occur in women’s bodies. These changes can affect the way a woman looks and feels as a result of fluctuating oestrogen levels. In the late forties and fifties, oestrogen loss leads to menopause with the following most common clinical symptoms.
Hot Flushes: a feeling of intense heat and sweating.
Night sweats: hot flushes occurring during sleep.
Vaginal dryness: discomfort and pain with intercourse.
Mood swings: anxiety and irritability.
Poor concentration: memory lapses and fatigue.
Skin condition: rapid skin ageing and dry abrasive skin.
The majority of women may suffer one or more of these symptoms. Fortunately, there are some natural alternatives from Arkopharma to assist in the management of these symptoms.
What is Phyto Soya and how can it help?
Clinical research demonstrates that naturally occurring plant compounds known as isoflavones act in a similar fashion to the female body’s own oestrogen. It has also been observed that women who have a diet rich in isoflavones for example, Japanese women, experience a much lower incidence of menopausal symptoms.
Soya is a plant particularly rich in isoflavones. These natural phyto-oestrogens are similar to female hormones. Arkopharma, a leading international company in the field of plant therapy has been studying the natural active principles of plants. This experience and in-depth study has resulted in the creation of the Phyto Soya range of products. The protective action of Phyto Soya aids not only menopausal symptoms (hot flushes) but may also have other health benefits including bone health, healthy cholesterol and skin hydration.
