Frequently Asked Questions
Asensia® does NOT contain hormones. As a result, Asensia® does not elevate hormone levels to an artificially high level, but instead raises them to what’s normal for a younger woman. The Asensia® formula has been shown at a Stanford University School of Medicine study, to improve progesterone levels in women in child bearing age. Many women self report improvement within 1 week, almost all within 1 month of taking Asensia® daily. The Asensia® formula significantly improves the negative symptoms of hormone decline and imbalance that naturally occurs as a woman ages and that can be accelerated by exposure to endocrine (hormone) disruptors. It achieves this primarily by naturally balancing progesterone levels.
The most important effects of properly balanced progesterone in women include reduction of mood swings, improvement of brain functioning, (especially memory and thought development processes), helps to maintain vascular and cardiovascular health, lower risk of endometrial cancer, increased strength and resilience of bones to help reduce risk of osteoporosis, reduces risk of gallbladder disease and promoting a healthy digestive tract, contributes to a healthy immune system and helps convert stored fat into energy.
Some of the most common signs of hormone imbalance in younger women are:
Use of birth control and contraceptive pills – Taking birth control pills suppresses your body’s ability to produce progesterone. Without enough progesterone, estrogen is left unchecked and many women become estrogen dominant.
Inconsistent lifestyle and chronic stress – Since some progesterone is produced in your adrenal gland, chronic stress depletes the adrenal gland and renders it unable to adequately produce proper progesterone.
Endocrine disruptors – If you have a poor diet that includes processed foods, hormone treated livestock or poultry, use cosmetics with parabens or non BPA plastics for food or drinking, you’re coming into contact with endocrine disruptors that mimic estrogen. Too much estrogen may lead to estrogen dominance.
Obesity – While not a cause of hormone imbalance in young women, it is considered a risk factor since fat cells can often produce estrogen.
Asensia® can help balance your ratio of estrogen to progesterone elevating symptoms of hormone imbalance in younger women.
Some things you might experience based on women using Asensia®:
“Resetting” of your cycle where you start or stop your cycle on a day not typical for you.
Lighter, heavier or bleeding again after you’ve stopped as part of the normal path of hormone decline.
Here’s what each key ingredient does:
An amino acid that helps increase nitric oxide. Nitric oxide helps increase circulation and has been shown to improve ovarian response. It can also increase sexual response and libido.
Chasteberry (Vitex agnus-castus)
Acts on the hypothalamus and the pituitary. It is believed to stimulate the release of luteinizing hormone (LH), and mildly inhibit follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). The result is a shift in the ratio, favoring progesterone to estrogen helping the body produce more of its own progesterone.
A powerful antioxidant. It helps to promote proper inflammatory response in the body which in turn may translate in better stress management. The combination of the antioxidants green tea, vitamin E and selenium improves the function of any one antioxidant alone.
