THE EFFECT OF MACA IN MENOPAUSAL SYSTEM

Studies have found increased rates of depression in women aged 45 to 54 years, range often associated with menopause occurrence, however the factors underlying these increased rates are not still fully understood. Climacteric symptoms are closely associated with menopause (Schindler, 2006), and are one of the main factors associated with higher rates of depressive symptoms among woman at midlife (Bosworth et al. 2001)

Hormone therapy is a common and effective treatment for relieving menopausal symptoms and preventing menopause-associated health issues (Combaire and Depydere, 2015), however many woman have become reluctant to continue or start the therapy due to side effects and potential health risks involved (WHI, 2002, Dailey et al. 2003,). Some woman seek for complementary and alternative therapies instead (Kronenberg, 2002, Geller et al. 2005) such as natural products like Maca.

Maca, Lepidium meyenii, is an herbaceous plant native to the Peruvian Central Andes. It has been cultivated since pre-Columbian times between 3800 and 4500 meters above sea level for its medicinal and dietary properties, including energizing and ffertility-enhancing effects among others (Esparza, 2015 and Sifuentes et al. 2015)

Additionally, some findings have shown that the use of Maca is effective in reducing psychological symptoms such as anxiety and depression, and lowering sexual dysfunction in postmenopausal woman (Brooks et al. 2008), as well as reducing the Kupperman menopausal index (Lee et al. 2011).

There are indeed several hormonal effective treatments for menopausal complaints; however natural products, for instance Maca, have proven to alleviate menopausal symptoms, such as depression, anxiety and sexual dysfunction. In this sense, Maca represents a complementary and alternative therapy for many women.

Maca and Hormonal System Works

The hormonal system, scientifically known as the endocrine system, controls nearly every bodily function. The endocrine glands monitor and regulate the production of hormones, which act as chemical messengers by relaying signals between cells and organs. For example, in women, the hormones estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone influence processes as diverse as mood regulation, sexual and reproductive processes, and metabolism, among others.

When the endocrine system is working correctly, its work goes largely unnoticed. However, when hormone levels become unbalanced or start to decline, women may begin to experience hormonal disorders, such as menopause symptoms. Maca from Isula Nature helps to nourish glands in the endocrine system balancing the hormonal system.

What Causes Hormonal Imbalance in Women?

There are two main reasons for hormonal imbalance in women: aging and natural fluctuations of reproductive hormones.

How Aging Decreases Hormonal Function

Aging brings about two factors that impact the endocrine system’s functionality. First, the different hormonal glands – thyroid, ovaries, adrenals, and others – progressively become less efficient. Additionally, a woman’s body is less nourished because of a reduced capacity to absorb nutrients from food. The combination of these two factors decreases hormonal function as a woman approaches menopause.

When going through natural menopause, women experience hormonal imbalances as a consequence of the aging process. This can manifest as a variety of menopause symptoms such as hot flashes, loss of libido, weight gain, hair loss, and many others. The cumulative impact of hormonal imbalance may also lead to long-term changes in the body, such as vaginal atrophy and osteoporosis.

How Hormonal Fluctuations Affect Women

Although a woman’s hormones fluctuate naturally during her menstrual cycle, hormones may also become unbalanced during certain stages of reproductive life, including puberty, pregnancy, post-partum, and menopause.

Because hormones – especially estrogen – play such an important role in the body, these hormonal changes often trigger a variety of hormonal disorders, such as PMS, irregular periods, mood swings, acne, and breast tenderness, among others.

In addition, poor health habits and genetic predisposition may increase the likelihood of hormonal imbalance prior to menopause.

How Isula Nature Supports the Hormonal System

Isula Nature is rich in nutrients, particularly ones that support the hormonal system. It contains vitamins, minerals, and beneficial alkaloids shown to naturally nourish and stimulate the hormonal glands. All of these nutrients are instrumental in maintaining both the hormonal system and whole body in top condition. Unlike phytoestrogenic herbs or hormonal medicines, which simply replace the missing hormones with external ones, Isula Nature helps support the hormonal system naturally by providing the necessary nutrients. By improving the endocrine system’s functions, Isula Nature offers a holistic approach for hormonal balance and overall health.

Benefits of MACA from Isula Nature

Hormones have many important functions in the body. By supporting hormone production, MACA offers a wide range of health benefits to women, from relieving the symptoms of menopause to increasing energy and vitality. Keep reading to learn about the main benefits of MACA.

Alleviates Other Hormonal Disorders

Relieves Menopause Symptoms

The menopause transition starts as women begin to experience sharp fluctuations in hormone levels. This happens because the body is preparing to permanently end the menstrual cycle. Hormonal imbalance has a direct effect on many functions such as appetite, sexual function, sleep, mood, and body temperature, which triggers a wide range of menopause symptoms.

  • Hot flashes and night sweats. Estrogen plays a role in regulating the hypothalamus, the part of the brain that serves as the thermostat of the body. When estrogen levels fluctuate during menopause, the hypothalamus may have moments of malfunction, resulting in hot flashes and night sweats. MACA balances estrogen levels, helping to keep the hypothalamus regulated.
  • Loss of libido and vaginal dryness. When estrogen levels are low, the vaginal walls tend to have less moisture. Sex drive is more complex, with low testosterone and high follicle stimulating hormone often contributing to a loss of libido, along with psychological factors. MACA naturally supports the production of the necessary sex hormones.
  • Weight gain. High testosterone levels can cause fat to be accumulated around the midsection, and since estrogen regulates fat distribution, hormonal imbalances and natural changes in metabolism can lead to weight gain. Macafem balances out hormone levels to aid in weight loss and help keep off the pounds.
  • Constipation and bloating. High estrogen levels can contribute to constipation, and progesterone’s regulation of water retention means that low levels can lead to bloating. MACA alleviates menopausal digestive problems by balancing these hormone levels, whether they start out too low or too high.
    • Other menopause symptoms. Breast pain, joint pain, headaches, hair loss, memory lapses (brain fog), itchy skin, irregular periods, dizziness, and other symptoms also stem from changes in hormone levels during menopause. By stimulating the hormonal glands, MACA balances hormone levels and relieves these symptoms.

  • Mood swings, anxiety, and depression. Estrogen affects mood through its regulation of serotonin, the main mood neurotransmitter. If estrogen levels are out of balance, changes in temperament ranging from irritability to depressed mood and panic attacks can occur. MACA uplifts mood by evening out estrogen levels, thereby balancing serotonin.
  • Sleep disorders and low energy. Decreased estrogen levels impact different parts of the sleep cycle and metabolism, while progesterone imbalance reduces sleepiness. MACA balances both estrogen and progesterone levels to promote quality sleep and greater energy levels.

Alleviates Other Hormonal Disorders

Because Isula Nature nourishes the endocrine system, it can help in managing other symptoms and disorders related to imbalances in hormone levels.

  • Relieves PMS symptoms. There is a delicate balance between estrogen and progesterone during most of the menstrual cycle, but when menstruation approaches, production becomes unbalanced, triggering a range of unwanted PMS symptoms, such as breast swelling and tenderness, cramping, fatigue, and irritability. MACA alleviates these symptoms by encouraging a more constant hormone production.
  • Increases energy and vitality. Because estrogen plays a role in regulating the hypothalamus and pancreas, lower estrogen levels can result in fatigue. MACA nourishes the endocrine glands, helping them produce a balanced amount of estrogen and other hormones, thereby supporting energy levels.
  • Eases residual postmenopause symptoms. After a woman has spent a full year without menstruating, she is said to have reached postmenopause. However, many menopause symptoms will not go away immediately: up to 50% of women may find themselves experiencing hot flashes three years after ending menopause. MACA  helps minimize these symptoms by supporting the hormonal system as it adapts to permanently lowered hormone production.
  • Relieves PMS symptoms. There is a delicate balance between estrogen and progesterone during most of the menstrual cycle, but when menstruation approaches, production becomes unbalanced, triggering a range of unwanted PMS symptoms, such as breast swelling and tenderness, cramping, fatigue, and irritability. MACA alleviates these symptoms by encouraging a more constant hormone production.
  • Helps prevent osteoporosis. Throughout life, bones lose and gain bone mass. The hormone estrogen is directly related to bone mass regeneration. When estrogen levels decrease, bone regeneration also decreases, resulting in bone loss. Cumulative bone loss often leads to osteoporosis. MACA supports estrogen production, which directly helps prevent bone loss.
