Tsim Sha , Hong Kong (PressExposure) March 13, 2012 -- Clinical research from Mahidol University has revealed the potential of Curcuma Comosa to act as a substitute to artificial hormone treatments for women suffering from uncomfortable menopause symptoms
Curcuma Comosa is a medicinal plant from the Ginger family that has been used for decades as a women's health supplement and herb for menopause in Thailand. Working in harmony with the female body, Curcuma Comosa helps to improve hormonal balance, relieving and preventing many of the problems caused by fluctuating hormones during menopause, including hot flashes, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, night sweats and mood swings. The remedy, which is nicknamed the 'miracle' herb by traditional Thai practitioners, is used to treat a range of gynecological and hormonal problems in Asia, including postpartum uterine inflammation, amenorrhea (absence of periods) and vaginal prolapse. Clinical studies have also shown that Curcuma Comosa can reduce levels of cholesterol in the blood and help improve muscle tone after pregnancy.
How does Curcuma Comosa work?
Research carried out by the Mahidol University in Thailand has shown that Curcuma Comosa has an estrogenic effect. It appears to increase the effects of estradiol: an important form of estrogen that controls uterine function and is often prescribed in artificial form to treat women with estrogen deficiency, particularly during menopause. The research indicated that Curcuma Comosa works in a very similar way to Hormone Replacement Therapy but without the introduction of potentially harmful synthetic hormones to the body.
By helping to replicate the effects of estrogens on the body naturally, Curcuma Comosa helps to maintain a healthy hormonal balance as women approach menopause. In the midst of ongoing debate about the safety of HRT, it is one of the increasingly popular herbs for menopause for women looking for a safe way to manage their symptoms, naturally.
