Reduce Estrogen Anxiety with Natural Alternatives.



Women's Health Solutions- Woman's Choice

As women approach age 35 and beyond,they can experience a variety of symptoms, some of which are related to declining estrogen levels. This normal occurrence often causes discomfort, including sleep disturbance. Studies suggest that isoflavones may help women meet nutritional needs during this time of life. Isoflavones have a chemical structure similar to the body's natural estrogen, which may account for these effects.


There are three primary isoflavones in soybeans: genisteindaidzein and glycitein. In various experimental models, isoflavones have exhibited properties that suggest they may help lower the risk of cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis and may help relieve menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes. Research suggests that the low Japanese breast cancer mortality rate may, in part, be due to consumption of foods containing soy isoflavones. In addition to breast cancer, soy isoflavones may help reduce the risk of several other types of cancer, including lung, colon and prostate cancer.

Woman's Choice is rich in natural sources of isoflavones, including Black Cohosh, Red Clover extract and Kudzu Root. It also contains antioxidants that assist the body's defense against the effects of free radicals.

Discussion Points

  • A perfect herb for "boomers": With the baby-boomer generation seeking more natural alternatives to health care, black cohosh easily could become one of the top-selling herbs in the world. It's already one of the biggest sellers in Europe, which has enjoyed the health-enhancing benefits of this herb for years.

  • Have you had your isoflavones today?: If you want to stay healthy, the answer should be "yes." Isoflavones offer numerous health benefits, such as helping to maintain cholesterol levels that are already within a healthy range. Also, preliminary studies show that soy isoflavones may increase bone mass.

  • Combine with other products: Combine with Herbalife's Woman's Advantage with DHEA, Xtra-Calcium® and Nature's Balance Cream to further promote women's health.

Did You Know?

Of all the phytochemicals that exist in the foods we eat, perhaps none has received as much attention as a group of phytochemicals found almost exclusively in soybeans –isoflavones.Isoflavones are being studied by scientists, medical experts and nutritionists throughout the world. In the past three years alone, more than 1,000 medical and scientific papers have been published on isoflavones alone.

The wild red clover plant is high in isoflavones and has been used to help a wide variety of conditions.

Like red clover, kudzu root also is high in isoflavones. It has been popular for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine and has been recommended for allergies, headache and angin

Superior nutritional tonic especially for women.

 


Tang Kuei Plus.

Tang kuei has been used for centuries in China as a general nutritional tonic, particularly beneficial for women because of its reputation for balancing hormonal shifts in females. The root of the plant is a rich source of B vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium and essential oils.

In the Chinese systemtang kuei is considered a "superior" herb that can be taken on a daily basis. It is often added to soups and broths to increase the nutritional value of these dishes.

When used in coordination with tang kuei, chamomile adds to the root's calming effect. Known for its ability to soothe smooth muscle tissue, chamomile is perfect for calming a nervous stomach, menstrual cramps and other stress-related physical maladies. Chamomile eases tension, making it ideal for promoting a restful night's sleep and may be sipped in tea form before bedtime.

Tang kuei sometimes is referred to as dong quai or Chinese angelica sinensis. The tang kuei substance we use for health benefits is derived from the root of the plant. The yellowish pulpof the root is the part that is processed into tablet form.

Herbalife has drawn from the health-enhancing benefits of these herbs to formulate Tang Kuei Plus. This all-natural product nutritionally supports the female system and can help alleviate a variety of physical disturbances.

Discussion Points

  • Support in a bottle: There is nothing comfortable about female cramps, but there is a way to seek comfort naturally. Women of all ages can turn to Tang Kuei Plus to bring about a healthy solution to the fight against cramps.

  • It's not just for "that time of the month": Aches, pains and general body discomfort can affect you any day of the month. Tang Kuei Plus can help you feel more like yourself without any side effects associated with over-the-counter products. It can be used by men as well.

  • Combine with other products: Use with Herbalife's Xtra Calcium® to further promote women's health.

 

Did You Know?

The root of the tang kuei plant contains calcium. Calcium may help prevent cramps by maintaining normal muscle tone. Muscles that are calcium-deficient tend to be hyperactive and, therefore, more likely to cramp. Calcium has been reported to reduce discomfort during the menstrual phase of the cycle and reduce water retention during the premenstrual phase. Studies have shown calcium supplementation improves premenstrual symptoms.

Dietary support for urinary health.

Triple Berry Complex

For many womenurinary-tract infections are a common and bothersome occurrence. Approximately 50% of women have experienced at least one urinary-tract infection by the age of 30 and many women develop chronic or recurrent problems. The good news is that help is available from one of nature’s most versatile tart fruits - the cranberry. This ruby-red berry has long been used for urinary support, but it’s also super-charged with antioxidant properties that can help guard against the damaging effects of free radicals.

Triple Berry Complex is an exciting product that combines the goodness of whole cranberrieswith nutrient-rich blueberries and the herb, bilberry, to help support urinary health. This time-released supplement delivers benefits over a 24-hour period, so you take just one capsule a day. If you’ve been drinking cranberry juice or cranberry- juice cocktail to help promote urinary health, Triple Berry Complex is an ideal alternative that’s natural, calorie free and convenient to use.

Discussion Points

  • Cranberry research: Why are cranberries associated with helping to promote urinary- tract health? Cranberries and blueberries contain condensed tannins called proanthocyanidins that prevent E. coli bacteria from attaching to cells in the urinary tract. These findings appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine.

  • Good news for the "blues": Blueberries are the second most popular berries in the United States... and with good reason. They not only taste great, but they are rich in antioxidant properties that can help fight the damaging effects of free radicals.

  • Combine with other Herbalife's products: Combine with Herbalife's Herbal Aloe Vera Drink for enhanced good health.

Did You Know?

Researchers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Human Nutrition Research Center at Tufts University fed extracts of blueberries, strawberries or spinach to rats and compared their health to rats who received no supplements. All the animals that were given supplements showed improvements in short-term memory compared with those rats that didn't get fed the botanicals. In addition, the rats who got the blueberry extracts also showed distinct improvements in balance and coordination.

Extra protection for your bones!

 

Xtra-Calcium

 

 

Calcium is an essential mineral the body needs for strong bones and teeth. In addition, calcium encourages a strong, steady heartbeat, keeps blood pumping efficiently and maintains nerves and muscles. In short–calcium pretty much helps keep your whole body working the way it should!


Your body's entire skeletal system and your teeth are composed of calcium. If your body isn't getting enough calcium through your diet, it will take what it needs from your bones to make up for it. Over time, this process can lead to osteoporosis, a crippling disease that can make bones very fragile and more susceptible to fracture.

As you age, your body stops producing bone and may begin to lose it. To maximize your peak bone density, make sure you get plenty of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D now, with Xtra-Cal!

It's never too late to start increasing your calcium intake. For people in their 40s and 50s, increasing calcium levels can help you maintain the bone you have. Xtra- Cal offers one of the most concentrated forms of calcium available in a tablet. It also is formulated with other vitamins and nutrients, including magnesium and vitamin D, that can promote healthy bones and skeletal health. Three tablets supply 100 percent of the U.S. Percent Daily Value of calcium intake for men and women over 40.

Discussion Points

  • Bone up on calcium: Calcium is essential to the health of bones, teeth and skin, yet few adults get enough of it in their diets. Three Xtra-Cal tablets a day supply 100 percent of the U.S. Percent Daily Value for calcium intake.

  • Ward off weak bones: To help prevent bone weakness and osteoporosis in the future, make sure you're getting plenty of calcium now. Bone development slows down around age 30 and bone strength continues to decrease throughout the rest of your life. Increasing calcium intake is health maintenance for bones and teeth.

  • Combine with other products: Xtra-Cal can be used in conjunction with the Thermojetics® Weight-Management Programs and Herbalife's entire line of nutritional products to boost your overall nutrient intake-including calcium.

  • Did You Know?

More than 28 million Americans are afflicted with osteoporosis. Although mainly considered a female problem, men are also vulnerable to osteoporosis and should make sure they consume enough calcium to ward off future bone loss.

Magnesium is a mineral needed by every cell of your body. About half of your body's magnesium stores are found inside cells of body tissues and organs, and half are combined with calcium and phosphorus in bone. Only one percent of the magnesium in your body is found in your blood. Magnesium helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, and bones strong. It is also involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. Although magnesium is present in many foods, such as spinach, nuts, seeds, and some whole grains, it usually occurs in small amounts. As with most nutrients, daily needs for magnesium cannot be met from a single food.

 Xtra-Cal is one of the most concentrated forms of calcium available in a tablet.
