As you are all well aware, I generally try to share as much personal experience as possible when I'm writing about a product here. However, I decided to spare you all on this one and NOT share personal details, since the topic in question is PMS. You can thank me later ;) But I will say that I have been using one of the products for a short while now and have not had any side effects and I have been pleased with it.
The At Last Naturals line of products is an all-natural line of products designed for women and developed by a woman. These products were developed to deal with a variety of the not-so-fun issues that we face as women. Here's some information on the products that was provided to me by At Last Naturals:
Wild Yam Cream
This natural cream is rich in diosgenin, a plant compound derived from wild yam that is structurally similar to those found in the body that can naturally help support women gently and effectively during times of imbalance. This, together with its exceptional moisturizing properties, the Wild Yam Cream assists the body in fighting hot flashes, mood swings and other menopausal, perimenopausal and PMS related issues. Suggested retail price: $16.95
Formulated for women experiencing more bothersome symptoms, such as hot flashes, mood swings and other menopausal, perimenopausal and PMS related issues, the extra strength gel offers a higher concentration of diosgenin (derived from wild yam). At Last Naturals Wild Yam Extra Strength Gel assists the body in fighting more severe symptoms related to menopausal, perimenopausal and PMS. Suggested retail price: $21.00
The non-irritating, water-based gel formula with Vitamin E provides naturally soothing relief for vaginal dryness and to help restore a women’s natural lubrication. Use every day, during sexual activity or as frequently as needed. Suggested retail price: $8.95
Wild Yam Meno-Herbs®
An all-herbal tablet formulation containing not only diosgenin, a plant compound derived from wild yam, but also a proprietary blend of key botanicals, such as red clover, dong quai, black cohosh, raspberry, chaste tree berry and other important herbs for women. It works synergistically to help balance and support the female system. Suggested retail price: $16.00
Meno-Herbs2® (with Protykin®)
An all-herbal, proprietary tablet formulation made with 10 botanicals, as well as Protykin®, a standardized Trans- RESVERATROL high potency 200:1 extract of Polygonum cuspidatum (root). This powerful antioxidant and cardioprotectant contains 50% phytoestrogens (natural plant estrogens). As a phytoestrogen, Protykin® helps provide natural menopause relief by helping maintain normal estrogen activity, reducing hot flashes, balancing mood swings and promoting 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. In addition, the formula contains red clover, black cohosh, dong quai, wild yam, raspberry, chaste tree berry and other important herbs for women that work synergistically to help balance and support the female system. This unique, extra-strength herbal combination provides a rich source of isoflavins and natural plant estrogens. It can be taken alone or as a safe and effective adjunct to the entire At Last Naturals® topical line.Suggested retail price: $24.50
Equigest® Progesterone Cream
This external cosmetic progesterone cream is applied to specific areas of the body to deliver just the right combination of quality ingredients to help maintain a healthy hormonal balance. At Last Naturals® Equigest® Progesterone Cream contains USP micronized progesterone (the process of micronization allows for steady, even absorption). USP classifies the progesterone as the highest quality available. It is formulated in a cream base that also contains vitamin E, vitamin A and pure aloe vera. Suggested retail price: $26.00
