How MacaPause Impacts Hormone Health
Here's what's happening ...about the size of a pearl, your hypothalamus gland is command central for your body's internal balance. When you were younger, it instructed your pituitary gland to produce the hormones that signaled it was time to release an egg. This, in turn, signaled your ovaries to produce estrogen and progesterone to support fertilization and growth.
Your hypothalamus also instructed all your other glands to produce and release the right balance of hormones responsible for controlling body temperature, hunger, thirst, blood pressure, heartbeat, fat metabolism, your emotions and your sex drive.
But gradually, your hypothalamus has stopped properly managing your production of hormones. So now, instead of a monthly period, you're dealing with hot flashes, night sweats, exhaustion and mood swings.
Even worse, you may also be dealing with low libido, dryness, wrinkles and thinning hair.
And systems that were naturally supported when your hormones were well balanced, like your heart and bones, may no longer be getting the same amount of hormone support. This could impact your health and well-being.
You need to wake up your hypothalamus!
But, how do you safely turn back the clock and turn on your fountain of youth without adding extra hormones to your body?

Why do we get more wrinkles, brittle nails and even sometimes acne during or post menopause?
The answer, again, is hormones.
The hair on your head is highly sensitive to changes in androgen hormones and thyroid function. When hormones like testosterone and estrogen are out of balance, hair loss can accelerate, and excess androgens can result in acne. Both prolonged-hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism can cause loss of hair.
There are many factors that impact the health of our skin from vitamin E to collagen, hydration, and hormones. For example, estrogen retains moisture to prevent dryness, helps maintain collagen and controls elasticity of our skin which is why as we go through menopause wrinkles seem to get worse!
In addition, without proper iron, women, in particular, do not respond well to hair and skin treatment.
In our clinical trials, and has worked with women for 12 years, we have seen first-hand how Femmenessence:
✔️Balances thyroid function*
✔️Supports iron absorption*
✔️Balances hormones like estrogen and testosterone*
✔️Supports hair retention (less shedding), skin health, and fingernail strength*
In the first 3-5 years post menopause we lose on average 7-10% of our bone density, or about 2% per year. It is the biggest loss of bone density most of us will experience in our lives.
We have all heard for years that calcium, magnesium, Vitamin D and weight bearing exercise are key to healthy bone density, however our diet, the time we spend in the sun and the exercise we do, don’t usually change very much in the first 3-5 years after menopause, so those aren’t the reasons we lose so much bone density during that time.
It is all primarily due to the loss of hormones when you hit post menopause.
Your bone is an active tissue just like your muscle. Your body is perpetually breaking old bone down and rebuilding new healthy bone. In fact you rebuild your whole skeletal structure once every 10 years and your hormones play one of the most important parts!
Estrogen reduces bone loss as it slows osteoclast cells which break down old bone*
Progesterone and testosterone support bone growth as they invigorate osteoblast cells which build bone*
In our published clinical trials, Femmenessence didn’t just support those hormones, it impacted them to such a degree that we saw improvements in bone health. We also saw increased serum calcium levels due to the impact Femmenessence has on metabolism and the body’s overall function.
Did you know that 50% of all deaths in woman post menopause are due to some form of cardiovascular disease?
The reason for this is that the loss and imbalance of hormones like estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, thyroid and many others all negatively impact our heart health.
Healthy estrogen levels increase HDL, or “good” cholesterol, and reduce triglycerides and LDL, or “bad” cholesterol and much much more to protect a women’s heart health.
Women are much more likely to die from a heart attack post-menopause. This increased risk is impacted by declining levels of progesterone, the “relaxing hormone”, which protects arteries from spasm. Women have much smaller arteries than men and spasm of coronary (heart) arteries can adversely affect blood flow to the heart.
Body weight, blood sugar, plaque build-up and hypertension, just to name a few, are also impacted by hormones such as testosterone, thyroid, insulin and cortisol.
