Leading up to and during the years a women goes through menopause many undesired physical and emotional symptoms often arise, such as increased stress, forgetfulness, mood changes, breast tenderness, and in certain cases osteoporosis. All of these unpleasant symptoms are a result of a women’s body adjusting to the major decrease in female hormonal production by the ovaries. Western medicine’s treatment for these issues often includes hormonal replacement therapy (HRT). While HRT often alleviates the negative effects of menopause in the short term, long term impacts of HRT are less than desirable. Thrombosis and uterine cancer are both linked to HRT.
For woman looking for an alternative method to balance their hormones during menopause, deer antler velvet may be the answer. Pantocrine, an active ingredient in deer antler velvet, is officially recommended for menopausal issues in Russia.
