Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) - Is it safe for menopause?
Recent research has found that HRT, the traditional treatment for menopausal symptoms may actually do more harm than good. But worry not, there’s an alternative far safer and we’re here to break it down to you.
First of all, what is HRT?
Available in the form of tablets, gel, skin patches, and implants, Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) replaces hormones (predominantly estrogen and progesterone) that your body no longer produces during menopause. However, the 2 main hormones used in HRT are mostly synthetic oestrogen and progestogen that are not naturally-derived.
The adverse side effects of HRT are actually similar to PMS; bloating, breast swelling, headaches, mood changes, nausea or even vaginal bleeding. As worrying as these effects sound, they’re typically not considered serious. The more serious side effects to HRT include increased risks of breast cancer, blood clots, and stroke. *gasps*
Moreover, those with a history of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, womb cancer, blood clots, liver disease or high blood pressure are not advised to take HRT.
Okay, so if I shouldn’t take HRT, what should I take then?

The Science Behind
The main ingredient, Pueraria Mirifica in lolvita™ cleverly mimics the biological action of estrogen to fill in the gap of estrogen deficiency, which is the cause of menopausal symptoms. It works without actually increasing the amount of estrogen which disrupts the body’s natural hormonal system. The best part is, it’s also considered the safest and most potent phytoestrogen as its structure is similar to the ‘friendly estrogen’ produced in our body, estriol (E3).
