Among the best natural herbs scientifically proven to benefit women’s health are:

Regular consumption of this herb can elevate estrogen levels, thus helping in treating fertility disorders caused due to lowered estrogen levels. In addition, clinical research shows that the herb red clover is a rich source of essential body nutrients like calcium, thiamine, niacin, potassium, and vitamin C.
Red clover is beneficial for women suffering from PMS or from symptoms of menopause such as hot flushes, vaginal dryness and night sweating, which are all indicators of lowered estrogen levels in the bloodstream.
BestSource™ Red Clover Herb, available in 100gm pouches, is prepared from dried flowers of the red clover herb. These flowers are handpicked from red clover plants in the Himalayas. Prepare a red clover tisane to enjoy its pleasant and soothing flavor while gaining rich health benefits.
2) Ashwagandha: Ashwagandha is a herbal magic potion for women’s health due to its myriad benefits – from stress reduction to premature aging to enhanced fertility and much more. This natural herb with its anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and immunity-building effects plays a major role in combating many women health issues including stress, mood swings, PMS and menopause-period symptoms like hot flashes, night sweating and heightened anxiety, depression, etc. Its active ingredients (steroidal alkaloids and steroidal lactones) are important fertility hormone precursors and stimulate blood flow to reproductive organs.

3) Nettle Leaf: Nettle leaf offers tremendous health benefits for both men and women. Research shows its immensely potent effect in the treatment of allergies, urinary problems, and skin ailments. The leaves, root, and stems of this plant offer powerful diuretic and antioxidant properties. Some of the best-known uses of nettle leaf in supporting female health include:
- Regular consumption of nettle leaf tea aided effective resolution of urinary tract infections that are quite common among women.

- In pregnant and lactating mothers, nettle leaf provides a rich source of Vitamin K and helps in increasing milk production.
- Women approaching menopause often complain of joint aches. The onset of osteoporosis is a common symptom of menopause. Nettle leaf contains “hox-alpha” – an agent that deters the production and action of prostaglandins and cytokines, both identified as major causes of joint inflammation.
Research shows that eight of every 10 women suffer from anemia. Nettle leaf, being a rich source of iron, helps in maintaining the hemoglobin count in the bloodstream.

Treatment and management of stress and its manifest disorders like PMS are essential for good living. Passionflower offers a natural way to manage this. Passionflower is a natural relaxant that is very effective in treating sleep apnea, anxiety disorders, and stress through its ability to increase the levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. Research shows its effectiveness to be equivalent to that of many benzodiazepine medicines currently being prescribed to treat stress. Passionflower can be consumed as a tea infusion or as a tincture.
Including natural herbs such as nettle leaf, chamomile, red clover, and passionflower in the daily diet is a natural, safe, and effective way to get and maintain a decent and healthy lifestyle for women.
