AM/PM Menopause Formula 60 tabs | Integrative Therapeutics
Natural, safe and hormone free, 24-hour relief of menopause symptoms.*

Benefits*

  • Both AM and PM tablets contain black cohosh, which has been clinically studied to relieve the symptoms of menopause including hot flashes, sweating, occasional restless sleep and occasional irritability.*
  • AM formula contains green tea and ginseng for daytime energy.*
  • PM includes L-theanine, valerian, and hops to promote sleep and relaxation.*


Key Features*

  • Contains the studied dose of standardized black cohosh.*
  • Advanced formula that is more powerful than black cohosh alone.*

This hormone-free, natural solution to menopause symptoms will support you all day and all night. This simple, two-tablet formula contains black cohosh and energizing herbs for the day, and black cohosh with relaxing ingredients that support sleep for the evening.*

How Does It Work?:
AM and PM formula:

Black Cohosh and menopause*
Black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) has traditionally been used for relief of menopausal complaints, especially hot flashes. Although the exact mechanism of its action has not been fully elucidated, the strongest evidence for the use of black cohosh comes from the results of clinical trials. A series of open clinical studies in more than 800 subjects demonstrated good efficacy of black cohosh extract in relieving hot flashes. Several double blind, placebo-controlled studies also demonstrate that black cohosh extract is beneficial in relieving menopausal symptoms.7-8*

The German Commission E monograph for black cohosh does not recommend its use for longer than 6 months, because of the lack of long-term safety data. However, to date, no evidence of toxicity or serious side effects has ever been reported in women.9,10*

The primary constituents in Cimicifuga racemosa extract are glycosides, specifically triterpene glycosides that include cimicifugoside, actein, and 27-deoxyactein. The Cimicifuga racemosa extracts used in AM/PM Menopause Formula are standardized to these triterpene glycosides measured as 27-deoxyactein.9,11,12*

Early research hypothesized that black cohosh exerted estrogen-like effects.11 Recent laboratory research shows that black cohosh binds to the estrogen receptor; however, it does not affect the luteinizing hormone level and does not exhibit estrogen-like effects.13 Thus, there is currently no consensus as to the biological effect of this binding.9,12-15 In small, as-yet unpublished human studies, there is indication that Cimicifuga racemosa does not alter estrogen levels and does not change the thickness of the lining of the uterus.14*

The question of how black cohosh works at the cellular level is currently being addressed in several ongoing research projects.15 To date, there is no definitive published data available to clearly describe the process; however, forty years of clinical studies on a standardized black cohosh extract show efficacy in the relief of hot flashes, profuse sweating, occasional sleeplessness, and support of mood.10,16*

Clinical Trials on Black Cohosh*
A randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study compared women who took standardized black cohosh extract with women taking conjugated estrogen or a placebo. At the end of the study, the women taking the standardized black cohosh extract showed improvement relative to the placebo as measured by the Kupperman Menopausal Index, the Hamilton Anxiety Scale, and the maturation index of vaginal epithelium. No clear improvement of menopausal complaints was observed in the control group. This study demonstrated clinical and statistical improvement of symptoms by the women taking the standardized black cohosh extract.7,17*


AM Formula*
Ginseng*
Ginseng has an ancient reputation as a tonic. In folk medicine, ginseng has been ascribed “masculine” properties; however, ginseng has been used by both men and women for a variety of applications. The Complete German Commission E Monograph has approved ginseng to combat fatigue and weakness, as a restorative for declining stamina and impaired concentration, and as an aid to convalescence.18 A double-blind, placebo-controlled study with 384 symptomatic postmenopausal women showed a tendency towards slightly better overall symptom relief, and a significant improvement in mood and well-being after supplementation of ginseng extract for 16 weeks.19*

A recent study of postmenopausal women with menopausal syndromes reported that when Korean red ginseng was used for 30 days, Cornell Medical Index (CMI) and State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) score was decreased with significant improvement in fatigue, poor sleep quality, and depression. 20 Therefore, Panax ginseng appears to be useful for relieving menopausal complaints.21*

Green Tea*
Green tea is a dried product of the fresh shoot of the tea plant (Camellia sinensis) from which numerous biological activities have been reported.21 One component is caffeine. Caffeine has been extensively studied as an ergogenic (energy producing) aid. It has shown consistent ergogenic effects for the support of overall health, stamina, and the reduction of fatigue.21*


PM formula:
The ingredients in the PM tablet of AM/PM Menopause Formula are included to promote relaxation and sleep. Poor sleep quality can lead to medical, psychological, and social disturbances. Conventional medical treatment for sleep problems includes psychological and pharmacological approaches. 26*

However, use of frequently prescribed sleep or sedative medications can lead to dependency and cause unwanted side effects or problematic withdrawal symptoms. The following herbs, commonly used for their relaxing or sedative properties, do not demonstrate side effects such as tolerance, habituation, and addiction.26,27*

Valerian*
Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) has been reported to have sleep inducing and calming effects in in-vivo studies and clinical trials. A placebo-controlled, crossover trial of 128 volunteers reported 400 mg of valerian extract at bedtime led to improved sleep quality, decreased sleep latency, and reduced the number of night awakenings. Two other clinical studies using 400-900 mg valerian before bedtime also demonstrated improved sleep quality. In a double-blind, cross-over, placebo-controlled trial, subjective sleep latency and wake time after sleep-onset were reduced by more than half after a 900 mg dose, with a smaller effect after 450 mg. One electroencephalographical (EEG) study reported 135 mg of aqueous, dried extract of valerian, taken three times daily, improved delta sleep and decreased stage 1 sleep. 26-32*

Recently, two human trials also demonstrated that valerian extract was effective in improvement of sleep structure and perception in subjects. 33,34 In general, clinical studies with valerian extracts suggest that the mild sleep-inducing effect of valerian decreases sleeps latency and improves sleep quality. 32*

L-Theanine*
L-theanine is one of the major components of amino acids in green tea. However, L-theanine does not contain any caffeine, even though it is from green tea.*

L-theanine's effect on brain amino acids and neurotransmittors has been investigated. In clinical trials, L-theanine causes significant increases of certain neurotransmitter concentrations in brain, which promotes muscle relaxation and improves sleep. 35,36*

Hops*
The dried strobile of Hops (Humulus lupulus) is a popular sleep aid. Hops have been used for centuries for gastrointestinal health support, and have more recently been used to support healthy sleep. Key constituents of hops include a volatile oil, valerianic acid, phytoestrogenic substances, tannins, and flavonoids. Hops have been demonstrated to induce sleep. 26,37*



Recommendations:
AM: One (white) AM tablet in the morning.*
PM: One (purple) PM tablet approximately 30-45 minutes before bedtime. It may take four to five weeks to achieve full benefits. Continue use to maintain benefits.*
