Nature’s plant oestrogen mimics
Several plant foods (especially soya foods, alfalfa sprouts and linseed) and herbs (Dong quai and black cohosh) contain oestrogen-like compounds called phyto-oestrogens. These are structurally similar to natural oestrogens and are capable of stimulating some oestrogenic activity in the body, although to a lesser degree. They therefore help in all conditions associated with a deficiency of oestrogen.
And there’s even better news. Phyto-oestrogens, because they compete with the body’s own oestrogen for oestrogen receptors, but have a lower oestrogenic activity; they can also help conditions in which excess oestrogen production is a problem, such as in some menstrual problems and breast cancer. Phyto-oestrogens therefore help to balance the female oestrogen cycle.

How often should I take Hormone Helper?
One tablet of Hormone Helper should be taken on a daily basis for best results.
