Commentary

Menopause is a natural biological process that occurs twelve months after a woman’s last menstrual cycle. Consequently, women are no longer fertile after menopause. While the timing varies, the average age of women experiencing menopause is 51 [1,2]. Menopausal symptoms include hot flashes (sudden feelings of heat in the upper part of the body), irregular periods, sleep problems, weight gain, vaginal dryness, and mood changes [1,2]. Menopause 6 is a novel herbal remedy that has shown the ability to reduce these and other symptoms of menopause.

In addition, Menopause 6 exhibited significant effects in adjusting female sexual hormones and also dysfunctional immune system besides its effects on some psychological disorders. Pars Bioscience is pleased to be the first to make this product commercially available.

Menopause is most commonly caused by a natural decline of estrogen and progesterone, the two female reproductive hormones that regulate menstruation [2]. As these hormone levels decline, a woman’s menstrual periods eventually become more irregular until menopause. It is not surprising, then, that most menopause treatments focus on increasing estrogen and progesterone levels. Hormone therapy is the most common and effective treatment for hot flashes associated with menopause. However, hormone therapy has been shown to increase the risk of breast cancer and blood clots. Forms of alternative medicine, such as herbal supplements, acupuncture, and yoga, have also been used to treat menopausal symptoms [1,2]. While not regulated by the FDA, herbal dietary supplements are among the most common complementary treatments for menopause. Menopause 6 has been clinically shown to reduce and adjust menopausal symptoms by regulating female sex hormones [3-6], balancing the levels of these two hormones that may be due to dysfunctional immune system [7-10] (certain allergies, autoimmune thyroid disorder and antibodies to hormone production) and other factors such as psychological disorders and stress. As a result, Menopause 6 is a promising new therapy for women struggling with hot flashes, mood swings, or other symptoms of menopause (Figure 1).
