Helps Ease Hot Flashes And Menopause Discomfort
Ease hot flashes and menopause discomfort with Black Cohosh, Rehmannia, Damiana & Licorice*
- As we age, women face fluctuating or declining female hormone levels. The physical and mental changes during this time can be very distracting.
- Perimenopause, or “pre” menopause, often starts in your 40s, though sometimes earlier or later. Estrogen levels start fluctuating, and your periods may become irregular, your flow changes, etc.
- Menopause, often late 40s or in your 50s – occurs when you have no period (menstruation) for 12 months straight. Hormone levels are lower, and the body goes through its adjustment.
- For either of these transitions, Estro-G Balance is a gentle, effective way to ease symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, moodiness, irritability and “brain fog”*.
- Our heritage 17 whole-herb blend supports a natural menopause by promoting hormone balance and helping to support the body naturally through mental and physical changes*

What’s the story on licorice and blood pressure?
Licorice is a widely studied natural antiviral, female hormone balancer, and adaptogenic herb that can help address stress and adrenal fatigue. It's also commonly used as a complementary herb used in modest amounts in both Western and Eastern herbal blends. in very high doses, the licorice "glycyrrhizin" can cause elevated blood pressure.
Since 1978 Crystal Star has focused on the functional benefits of whole herbs formulated with secondary and tertiary supporting ingredients. The amount of Licorice in Estro-G Balance is just a small part of the 17 whole herb formula. However, we don’t recommend any form of licorice for people with a history of renal failure as well as people who are on heart medication or steroid drugs. Please discontinue if you become pregnant.
Can phytoestrogens increase risk for diseases like breast cancer?
While it’s true that some herbs like Dong Quai, Red Clover, and Licorice contain natural phytoestrogens (estrogen-like compounds), there is no credible evidence that moderate intake of these herbs in their whole form will increase your risk for estrogen driven disease, like breast cancer.
Dr. Linda Page combined numerous whole herbs in moderate amounts in the formulas. This type of traditional herbal approach reduces the potential for side effects or reactions, and is a primary reason many herbalists choose to blend herbs rather than use high doses of any one herb. The blended herbs in a moderate concentration act more like a food than a drug in the system. They go through normal digestion and elimination like a food, not building up in the system or burdening the body with potential toxicity.
Still, if you have an estrogen-based health problem, it’s a good idea to talk to your doctor before using herbs that can affect hormone balance. Other products on the market use concentrated sources of phytoestrogens, or may be otherwise inappropriate for your unique health needs.
