What does Viridian Organic Female Herbal Complex do?

Lets look at the ingredients of the organic Female Herbal Complex.

What does Shatavari do?

Shatavari is actually a species of asparagus, that is native to India and the Himalayas. It has a traditional application as a female adaptogen. It is naturally high in isoflavones - the well known phytoestrogens found in soya foods. It has been used in Ayurvedic medicine as an antispasmodic, against menstrual cramps, and is also believed to be a uterine tonic - helping to regulate uterine function during different stages of the menstrual cycle. In this context, it is sometimes referred to as a uterine sedative, as many studies have confirmed its ability to reduce excessive spasmodic activity of the uterus wall.

What does Oat Seed do?

Oats have been used as a restorative remedy for centuries. It had a specific usage for those with nervous disorders, particularly nervous exhaustion. Of most relevance here is the impact that oats have upon cholesterol. One issue that arises in women of menopausal age, is an elevation of LDL cholesterol, as estrogen levels fall. Oats contain a compound called beta glucan, which is a type of soluble fibre that has been shown in several clinical trials to bind to LDL cholesterol, carrying it out of the body via the bowel.

What does Holy Basil do?

Holy basil, known as ‘Tulsi’ in Ayurvedic medicine, for centuries. It is a well known anti-inflammatory, working as a natural COX-2 inhibitor. It is also a highly regarded adaptogen, helping to reduce the physiological impact of stress, such as prolonged cortisol elevation. In this context, holy basil is a wonderful mood stabiliser, and stress reliever.

What does Agnus Castus do?

The basic mechanism of action underlying agnus castus is its effect on enhancing corpus luteal development (thereby correcting a relative progesterone deficiency) via effects through the pituitary gland. Agnus castus has a profound effect on the hypothalamus and on pituitary function, helping normalise other hormones and reducing both prolactin and the estrogen-to-progesterone ratio.

What does Sage do?

Sage is another herb that has a long standing tradition in Women’s health. Sage is well known as an antispasmodic, inhibiting serotonin and acetylcholine mediated tissue contractions, which suggests some potential application in menstrual dysfunction (Barnes et al, 2002). It has commonly been used as a remedy for hot flushes, associated with the menopause. There are century’s worth of empirical data for this application, although there is very little in the way of clinical data.

What does Fennel do?

Fennel has been used in the herbal practice of virtually every single culture on earth. It is most often used as a digestive tonic, to ease bloating and digestive cramps. Recently however, it has been discovered that fennel seeds contain significant levels of phytoestrogens which can bind to oestrogen receptors, reducing some of the symptom patterns that are associated with declining oestrogen levels. Compounds in fennel are also known to enhance liver function, which can have a bearing on oestrogen recycling. Fennel seeds have also traditionally been used to encourage the flow of breast milk.

What does Artichoke do?

Artichokes have been used in herbal medicine in the British Isles for decades. It has long been viewed as a liver herb, and has found its way into all manner of detox products and regimes. Artichoke has a valid reputation in the management of elevated LDL cholesterol levels. The active constituents in artichoke, caffeoylquinic acids have been shown to notably reduce cholesterol biosynthesis (Fintelmann & Menssen, 1996).

Dosage - 1-3 capsules daily with food.
