Happy Hormones Make for Happy Moms!
Life Choice offers women 3 great products specifically designed for hormone balance.

Two of these products, Progest Liposome Cream and Balanced Female, contain non-GMO soy. Due to mixed messages about safety, soy product usage can be a difficult choice for some women. However, several studies have shown that non-GMO soy can be beneficial for controlling menopausal symptoms.

In the US, the American Institute of Cancer Research found that women who have had breast cancer can safely consume soyfoods. In fact, breast cancer survivors who eat a more plant-based diet can use soy as a healthy protein alternative.

In Canada, researchers participated in a two-year clinical trial evaluating the health effects of soy isoflavones, either alone or with exercise. Over 300 postmenopausal women were studied, and besides improving leg strength, soy either alone or with exercise also lowered LDL-cholesterol by 6%. It also reduced adverse menopausal symptoms, such as: breast tenderness, decreased concentration, depression, fatigue, hot flashes, insomnia, numbness, vaginal dryness and itching, night sweats, subjective weight gain, migraines, anxiety, irritability, and changes in bleeding patterns. Supplementation did not affect two measures of safety, endometrial thickness and mammographic density, which are both assessed to determine the risk of endometrial and breast cancer, respectively. These results agree with a large dataset showing isoflavones don’t affect these markers.

These impressive studies are on non-GMO soy alone! Our Progest Liposome Cream also contains powerful ingredients like red clover extract and rosemary leaf. Notable components of Balanced Female include black cohosh, chastetree berry, and dong quai root.

Our Uplift and Invigorate also promotes hormone balance, along with a firmer, fuller bustline. Here is information about just a few of the ingredients:

Wild Lettuce
This herb has been valued over the ages for its medicinal properties. In ancient times, indigenous women included wild lettuce in their feast menus with a view to avoiding intoxication, while women who had given birth recently used a tea prepared with the herb to enhance lactation or milk production by the mammary glands. Many herbal medicine practitioners also recommended the use of wild lettuce as a diuretic and as a lotion to treat chapped skin, as well as a tranquilizer and pain killer.

Red Raspberry
Helpful in promoting the overall health and well being of a woman during pregnancy, red raspberry is considered a tonic for pregnant women, boosting their overall health and immune system. Those having menstrual irregularities can take red raspberry tea to help regulate their menstrual cycle, and reduce the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome.

Saw Palmetto
Saw palmetto has been used for centuries. Native Americans, dating back to pre-Mayan civilizations, used the berries for food and medicine and particularly for women’s breast disorders. It is also used as an aphrodisiac, and for inhibited sexual desire in women. Saw palmetto is now a popular and effective treatment for prostate enlargement in men but had its origins in natural medicine as a breast enlarger and is still recommended today by many naturopathic physicians for increasing breast size. Known primarily as “a man’s herb”, saw palmetto is indeed sold short, when confined to the treatment of male disorders, for it has definite benefits for womankind.
