The modern woman leads a busy life juggling work, parenting and trying to maintain a happy home. It’s not uncommon for women to feel overwhelmed as they struggle to balance life’s demands, often feeling emotional, moody desperate and overwhelmed. This can translate into feelings of hopelessness, frustration and sadness. Oestrogen Dominance, arising from a woman’s hormones being out of balance, can lead to problems such as uncontrollable emotions, irritability, persistent mood swings, stress, anger, hormonal issues, fluctuating/painful periods, fatigue and difficulty sleeping. The Beauty Book decided to do some research and learnt that Oestrogen Dominance is a condition where women have deficient, normal or excessive oestrogen but have little or no progesterone to balance its effects in the body. The Beauty Book visited our local pharmacy to find a product that can help with Oestrogen Dominance. We were excited to learn about 30 PLUS NuWoman, a natural supplement designed especially for women to bring hormones back into balance. An inspection of the back label explained the product is packed with many key nutrients – Cimi-max, an patented extract of Cimicifuga racemosa (Black cohosh)
, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B9 (Folic acid), Vitamin B12
, Calcium and Chromium Picolinate
. We were also excited to learn that 30 PLUS NuWoman is completely hormone free.
Our Experience with 30 PLUS
The instructions state that it would generally take two menstrual cycles to notice results. One of The Beauty Book’s writers decided to trial the product for a few months and was over the moon with the results. Often experiencing mood swings and the highs and lows of life, in addition to unsettled sleep, life improved dramatically. She found she enjoyed greater periods of calm in her life and more settled sleep; she was so impressed that she decided to keep taking it. Further research on Oestrogen Dominance showed it can also be responsible for weight gain and terrible period pain. It’s thought there are several factors linked to Oestrogen Dominance. Specifially:
- Excessive consumption of non-organic meat, especially poultry – the high levels of hormones present in these animals can skyrocket oestrogen levels in the consumer.
- Increased phytoestrogens (oestrogen mimicking chemicals found in plants such as soy and red clover), ingesting PBA’s (from food and water kept in unapproved plastic containers), chemicals (such as parabans) in beauty products, and other chemicals contaminants in our environment.
- Oral contraceptive pill and hormone replacement therapy.
- Every increasing stress facing women in the 21st century.
