Menopause and Andropause

Menopause and Andropause

At some stage in life, both male and females will encounter hormonal decline

Sooner or later females will reach their menopause and males will reach their andropause also known as the time in life when reverse changes from the teen age are happening.

For females, this marks the end of menstruation and for males the production of sperms starts to be reduced. The overage age when menopause and andropause are reached are about 50, but can also start in as early as mid 40's.

For females the menopause is the end of egg production and this occurs as a result of falling levels of female sex hormones, oestrogen's and progesterone that also regulates menstruation. Drop in female hormones does not happen overnight but will gradually reduce over a period of time.

For males, drop in testosterone makes less sperm production and for some, erections will also be less frequent or drop out all together. This period is also a time when both males and females realises that in fact they are transgender, but has suppressed their real "me" over a long periode of time.

During the peri-menopause period the drop of female hormones will also result in possible changes like deepening of the voice, thinning of hair, facial hair start to grow, breasts starts to drop down and getting flat and the vagina are getting dry. Many women experience both physical and emotional symptoms without seeking medical advice. However, there is treatments available that can ease menopausal symptoms that are severe or distressing.

Oestriol (estriol) the strength in a weaker hormone

One of the three principal hormones in a female body is oestriol (estriol) while in males an important hormone is Aldosterone. Both females and males produces oestriol in the placentas and the level is not much different between females and males. Often oestriol is named "good oestrogen" and oestradiol "bad oestrogen" in the same way as we find good and bad cholesterol. Studies have shown that estriol reduces symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness. Because oestriol is a weaker type of oestrogen's it also more safe then the more potent types but being weaker does not mean it's less effective and it's a better choice for BHRT (Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy).

Some research even suggests that oestriol has good benefits on bone density and may also help improve cardiovascular risk factors (heart health ) post-menopausal urinary tract health and shows promise in reducing the brain lesions of multiple sclerosis (MS).

The body naturally makes three oestrogen hormones namely oestradiol, oestrone, and oestriol where oestriol offers a wealth of potential health benefits without the dangers of other more potent oestrogen's, natural or synthetic.

For many, fear of cancer and DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) prevents many female and males from restoring youthful hormone levels and this is understandable when we know that many reports shows the danger of taking synthetic hormones such as Premarin and Provera (medroxyprogesterone).

Many people are also skeptical to herbal HRT and often this is caused by not only using less potent natural hormones such as Soy, Red Clover, Wild Yam (although many HRT preparations are extracted from Yams the human body is incapable of breaking down the Yam into the sex hormones therefore they cannot have any effect on oestrogen or progesterone receptors) but also these products are not subject to the strict regulations which apply to drugs. Often there is no or little control or regulation of the quality and contaminants in such products and some herbal products can in fact contain small amount of active drugs, which can be extremely dangerous for consumption. Some herbal preparations have also been found to contain contaminants such as arsenic, lead and mercury as well as yeast, mould and germs. Such contaminants are extremely toxic to the liver and kidneys and to your health.

MiroHealth from Anne Selene contains several herbs where the main herb is Pueraria Mirifica (Kwao Krua) which is well known for its highly potent Miroestrol a very similar chemical structure as found in the safest human oestrogen Oestriol. The effect of taking MiroHealth, Miroestrol is about 3000 times more potent than the estrogenic activity shown in soy Isoflavones Genistein. Further more, MiroHealth has more than 1000 times the estrogenic activity of i.e. other fytoøstrogens found in i.e. Red Clover, Soy and Yam.

AldoHealth from Anne Selene contains the male hormone Aldosterone, which is a natural male hormones and are so to say vital for blood circulation as well as new tissue generation. Taking AldoHealth may therefore resulting in improved erectile dysfunction and in the same time enlargement the sex organs, which again gives strengthen sex organ muscles and improve sexual activities.

AldoHealth will therefore increase the body cerium aldosterone hormones which promote blood circulation (also at penis area) and tissue generation resulting in enhanced organ muscles which gives better sexual stamina and erectile function for sexual performance. Furthermore as AldoHealth has an effect in inhibiting cAMP phosphodesterase it would also take part in controlling numerous diseases such as asthma, diabetes hypertension, hepatomas, psoriasis and somewhat cancer.

MiroHealt is a perfect alternative for HRT for menopause symptoms while AldoHealth is perfect for andropause symptoms.
