Emerita Phytoestrogen Body Cream
Phytoestrogen Body Cream includes phytoestrogen plant compounds that have been clinically shown to help women manage their perimenopausal and menopausal estrogen balance.
Phytoestrogens are plant-derived compounds that can produce mild estrogen-like effects in the body. Many women use our Phytoestrogen Body Cream to help if their estrogen level is low, as it is in menopause. Others find it to be helpful if their estrogen levels are high, as is the case for "estrogen-dominant" women. Phytoestrogen Body Cream is a good companion to Pro-Gest® and in finding your own natural balance.
Massage about ¼ to ½ teaspoon into your skin on areas like your wrists, arms, thighs or tummy. There is no need to take a break as with Pro-Gest. Phytoestrogen Body Cream may be used alone or as a companion to Pro-Gest®.
While Phytoestrogens are not chemically identical to the hormones our body makes, they fill empty estrogen receptor sites and produce mild estrogen-like effects. Used during perimenopause, phytoestrogens can occupy some estrogen receptor sites instead of stronger estrogen, therefore resulting in a lower overall estrogen level. They have been clinically shown to help women manage their perimenopausal and menopausal estrogen balance.

Emerita (e-MER-ita) is a woman-owned company that's been in the business of serving women over 40 since the 1970s.
It began as a family business, which youngest daughter Sharon MacFarland took over in 1983 at the age of 23. Since then Sharon built it into Emerita, a leading national brand of natural wellness products for women.
In the early days, the company marketed natural menopause products through the Transitions For Health catalog and through physicians' offices. The catalog even appeared in an episode of Sex & the City.
Then in the 1990s, the company's flagship progesterone cream Pro-Gest was introduced at natural food stores, launching a whole category of natural wellness products for women over 40. Since then, Emerita has expanded its offerings to include sexual vitality and skin care products, as well.
Emerita has long been a socially-responsible company that's respectful and empowering of its employees, operating in an open and collaborative fashion. It also has a long history as an advocate for women, valuing education about women's health issues.
