What is
Pueraria Mirifica?

Pueraria Mirifica is a plant that grows in the forests of northern and north-eastern Thailand. For centuries, the Thais have used the roots of Pueraria Mirifica as traditional medicine, taking advantage of the plant’s anti-ageing and rejuvenation properties to promote youthfulness in women. Pueraria Mirifica is considered one of Thailand’s national treasures.

The main phytochemicals found in Pueraria Mirifica are phytoestrogens, including mirestrol, deoxymirestrol and isoflavonoids - these mimic the healthy functions of the female hormone, estrogen. Containing high levels of phytoestrogens, Pueraria Mirifica is often used in herbal supplements that are formulated for the management of menopausal symptoms and other health conditions associated with low estrogen levels.

 

Why is estrogen 
the essence of womanhood? 

In women, there are two main sex hormones: estrogen and progesterone. Estrogen is responsible for the development and maintenance of the reproductive system and female physical features, such as the formation of breast tissue, regulation of menstrual cycle, etc. - biological traits aspects that characterize womanhood. As women age and especially when menopause sets in, estrogen levels dip significantly. Insufficient estrogen may result in the acceleration of physical signs of ageing, such as loss of skin elasticity, the appearance of wrinkles, dry skin, dull skin tone, mood swings, and even depression

Estrogen defines the essence of womanhood as it plays a key role in a woman’s overall well-being.

When do estrogen levels start declining in women?

Biologically, the life stages of a woman are divided into infancy, puberty/adolescence, sexual maturation (reproductive age), pre-menopausal period, and post-menopausal stage. The levels of the 2 main sex hormones - estrogen and progesterone - reach their peak at around 35 years, which is part of the sexual maturation/reproductive age. The levels of both hormones start their gradual decline after they reach their peak. Around 45 to 55 years of age, or the menopausal period, the levels decline dramatically until they reach their lowest point and then stabilize - this is when the post-menopausal stage begins. You may refer to the chart below.

The declines in hormonal levels have always been associated with health problems in women, especially during the menopausal period. The discomforts/symptoms of low estrogen levels include:

 

What are phytoestrogens and their health benefits?

Phytoestrogens are naturally occurring compounds found in plants and plant-based foods. They have a similar chemical structure to that of estrogen. When they enter the body, the body’s estrogen receptors treat them like they are estrogen. Therefore, they can function like estrogen and provide the same health benefits as those provided by estrogen, but with weaker effects.

Scientific studies have shown that phytoestrogens are beneficial for women looking to maintain the healthy functions of estrogen, especially for those approaching menopause in their early 40s, when their hormone levels fluctuate and cause a variety of health problems.
