Hot flashes, mood swings and other discomforts stem from hormone imbalances. But, such imbalances don't just happen.
As menopause nears, the ovaries begin to shut down. This leaves your adrenal glands as your only source of progesterone. If your adrenal glands are in perfect health, you'll make enough progesterone, under normal circumstances, to maintain hormone balance. If not, you will be progesterone deficient. Dr. John R. Lee (What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause) believes that nearly all hot flashes, mood swings, night sweats and other related problems are caused by adrenal related progesterone deficiency, or by excesses of estrogen that are caused by the estrogenic chemicals found in plastics.
While hormone balancing factors (like hesperidin and isoflavones) can help calm hot flashes, mood swings, night sweats and so on, they do nothing to strengthen the adrenal glands. Hot flashes, mood swings and so on are bad enough; adrenal weakness can also cause far worse problems in the future. Thus, it is vital to address this aspect of menopausal distress.
Transitions is the only supplement you'll find that addresses both immediate hormone imbalances and the weaknesses that cause them. Because of this, it will help you feel not just better, but your very best, while also guarding against future health problems in ways that other supplements simply can't.
