A woman's body goes through many phases in her lifetime. Menopause is a part of natural progression for women and shouldn't be a time of discomfort and illness.
As women approach and pass through menopause, their bodies produce much lower amounts of estrogens, progesterone, androgens, and other hormones causing symptoms ranging from mild discomfort to serious, debilitating and long-term illness such as: osteoporosis, heart disease, endometriosis, PMS, pre-menopause symptoms, weight gain, decreased sex drive, and fibrocystic breasts. Replacement of some or all of the above hormones, that the body has produced throughout life, is often necessary.
Today, millions of women concerned about the effects of aging must decide whether or not to undergo traditional synthetic hormone replacement therapy and suffer its side effects and increased risks of cancer. As we consider the benefit to risk ratio, we must take into account new evidence and ongoing research about natural alternatives to traditional HRT therapy.
What is Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)?
Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) means that the chemical makeup of the replacement hormone is the same as what the human body produces. These natural hormones are made from plants, which contain precursor molecules that the body can chemically process into a variety of bio-identical hormones. Your body recognizes and processes these phytochemicals as food and nourishment, sending it throughout the body, converting it to necessary hormones.
Our Natural HRT formula is made with Protykin® trans-resveratrol, a powerful new plant estrogen (phytoestrogen) and soy isoflavones, with no known negative side effects which are normally associated with traditional hormone replacement therapies.
Women are no longer willing to accept the risks associated with synthetic hormones, and are searching for safer alternatives. An estimated two million women are now benefiting from natural "plant-derived bio-identical" estrogens and progesterone.
Protykin® is a high potency 200:1 standardized extract of Polygonum cuspidatum (root), a powerful antioxidant and cardioprotectant that contains 50% phytoestrogens (natural plant estrogens). As a phytoestrogen, Protykin® (patent-pending) helps maintain normal estrogen activity, reduce hot flashes, balance mood swings and promote healthy bone density. Derived from the root of Polygonum cuspidatum, an herb used in traditional Chinese medicine, Protykin® contains more than 1,000-times the amount of the same antioxidant ingredient in red wine that is believed to promote cardiovascular health and reduce the effects of premature aging.

Promotes cardiovascular health
Helps prevent the effects of premature aging
Protykin® contains powerful phytoestrogens that have been shown to bind to the Human Estrogen Receptor and enhance estrogen-like activity in the body, without causing any of the side effects associated with synthetic hormone replacement therapy (HRT). In fact, research suggests that the phytoestrogens in Protykin® are the same substances in red wine responsible for the cardiovascular health benefits associated with its consumption. These phytoestrogens also have the added benefit of being antioxidants, which provides cellular protection against free-radical attack, protecting the body against environmental pollutants and helps prevent the effects of premature aging.
The phytoestrogens in Protykin® are structurally very similar to Diethylstilbestrol (DES), a synthetic form of estrogen commonly used in Hormone Replacement Therapy. However, these phytoestrogens do not produce any of the side effects associated with DES, such as liver and gallbladder disease, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack and certain types of cancer. In fact,Protykin® may prevent many of the problems DES has been shown to cause.
