How it works
The Western herb Black Cohosh indicates it may relieve many of the physical and emotional symptoms that can occur during menopause, including hot flushes, sleeplessness, irritability and nervous tension.
The Black Cohosh extract used in Fusion® Menopause is standardised to provide a consistent dose of compounds called triterpene glycosides, which are believed largely responsible for the herb’s therapeutic effects (calculated as 27-desoxyactein 2.5mg).
In Fusion® Menopause, this Western herb is supported by a synergistic combination of Chinese herbs traditionally used to relieve menopause symptoms such as hot flushes, excessive perspiration, fatigue, irritability, nervousness, insomnia and vaginal dryness.
According to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), most women’s menopausal symptoms are attributed to a deficiency of both Kidney Yin (female energy) and Kidney Yang (male energy), with one pattern of energetic imbalance dominating: either a deficiency of Yin or a deficiency of Yang.
Fusion® Menopause has been carefully formulated to support women whose menopausal symptoms are indicative of an underlying deficiency of Yang relative to Yin. In TCM, when Yin and Yang are out of harmony in this way, the Shen or Spirit is likely to be out of balance too, leading to emotional ups and downs, nervous tension, irritability and sexual disinterest, often accompanied by fatigue.
