Hormone Helper is a balancing herbal tincture formulated to support hormonal shifts. The active ingredient, Vitex berry, alters the balance of hormones in those who are menstruating. It regulates hormones such as estrogen and progesterone by reducing the levels of the hormone prolactin. The overall effect of this rebalancing is decreasing the symptoms of PMS.
Women involved in a recent trial reported a decrease in irritability and mood swings, as well as reduced cravings and swollen breasts.
These hormone balancing properties are also thought to have beneficial effects in women who are going through the menopause.
Some of those given Vitex have reported a reduced amount of night sweats and hot flashes, as well as a better mood, and better sleep.
IMPORTANT: Vitex berry lowers estrogen and raises progesterone. So if you have low levels of estrogen and high levels of progesterone, Hormone Helper is not for you.
Signs that you may have high estrogen/low progesterone thus needing Hormone Helper:
Severe PMS symptoms, mood swings, irritability, heavy bleeding, weight gain, anxiety, bloating, breast tenderness, hair loss
Signs that you may have low estrogen/high progesterone thus NOT needing Hormone Helper:
Vaginal dryness, irregular/absent periods, depression, headaches/migraines, low libido
**Applied to the skin, there is some evidence that Vitex works as an efficient insect repellent, and can keep fleas and mosquitoes from biting for up to six hours!
Do not use Hormone Helper in conjunction with the birth control pill or hormone replacement therapy (HRT), or if you're taking medications for IVF treatment. Using Vitex may render the medications less effective as they may work against each other.
Organic Ingredients: Vitex berry & Grain Alcohol (100 proof vodka)
Suggested usage: Shake well before using. Take one dropper bulb (approx. 30 drops) in juice or water 2-3 times daily. Up to 3x a day. Vitex works extremely well, but it can be a little slow-acting. It may take several weeks of use (4-12) before the best results are achieved. The longer a woman has had hormone imbalance, the longer she may need to use Vitex.
