A HAPPIER AND HEALTHIER MENOPAUSE

Going through the menopause is part of life’s natural rhythm. It marks the beginning of a new chapter in a woman’s life and can be a time for renewed self-confidence.  But for many women, these hormonal changes can create an unwanted challenge; with both emotional and physical symptoms to deal with, such as hot flushes, night sweats, loss of sex drive, weight gain and mood changes. Read more on Pukka’s Womankind range

The average age of menopause is around 50 years, but hormone levels can start to change several years before this, typically from around age 45. This is the peri-menopause and is when women can start to experience the first signs and symptoms.

For women that want to support their body naturally, Mother Nature has provided a natural solution: medicinal plants, which have a long tradition of use for supporting women’s health and vitality.

Pukka’s new organic ‘women’s’ range has been formulated by herbalist and Ayurvedic Practitioner Sebastian Pole to help take care of women’s everyday wellbeing, hormonal balance and natural rhythms.

The supplements in the ‘women’s’ range are made with only the highest-quality organic medicinal grade plants that work with nature to nourish and protect the female body. Like all of Pukka’s products, these supplements are free of additives and fillers and other unnatural ingredients.

“A woman’s life is guided by hormonal cycles from adolescence right through to peri-menopause. Herbs help bring balance, stability and strength in times of turbulence, helping the body adapt and thrive in both new and challenging environments.” Sebastian Pole, medical herbalist.

More than just cranberry, Womankind Cranberry Cool contains a balanced combination of natural plants to soothe, cool, relieve inflammation, fight infection and encourage healthy urine flow.
