Evening primrose is a plant native to North and South America, now also found across Europe and Asia. The oil is incredibly rich in omega 6 essential fatty acids, including gamma linolenic acid (GLA). GLA is thought to exert anti-inflammatory effects in the body, leading it to be recommended for a number of inflammatory conditions including rheumatoid arthritis. A clinical trial showed improvement in hot flash frequency, severity and duration on supplementation with evening primrose oil during the menopause. It may also have the potential to improve depressive moods, irritability and anxiety. 

Bacopa monnieri, or brahmi, is an extract from the water hyssop plant, which has been traditionally used in ayurvedic medicine for centuries. This botanical has a high amount of naturally occurring antioxidants, capable of protecting cellular damage from free radicals. It is purported to have short- and long- term memory effects, and help to increase concentration. A number of studies have appeared to confirm this, demonstrating an improvement on retaining new information and word recall. 

Choline is an essential nutrient, with functions similar to the B vitamin family. Although the body produces some choline in the liver, we must also obtain some from the diet or supplementation. Choline is involved in liver function, fat metabolism, but especially brain development and nervous system health. Estrogen plays a crucial role in the production of choline in the body, and with estrogen levels falling dramatically after the menopause, post-menopausal women have a much higher dietary need for choline.  Postmenopausal women were also more likely to show signs of liver or muscle damage on a choline-deficient diet, compared to pre-menopause.

As the richest sources of choline are animal products, vegan or vegetarian diets may provide only small quantities of this nutrient.

Sage is not only a common garden herb, belonging to the mint family, but surprisingly also a nutritional powerhouse containing over 160 different polyphenol compounds. These polyphenols include caffeic acid and rosmarinic acid, which have been attributed to anti-microbial, anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory benefits. Sage is also thought to support cognitive function, concentration and memory, which are often affected during the menopausal transition. Research has even shown sage extract may help to manage symptoms of mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease.

Sage has a long history of traditional use, especially when supporting female hormonal conditions. In more recent years, studies have shown improvements in a number of menopausal symptoms including hot flushes, night sweats, fatigue, heart palpitations, sleep disorders and anxiety. Additional benefits include support for the digestive, immune, and respiratory systems, and even maintaining normal blood glucose.
