Red Raspberry
Raspberry leaf has been a favorite of herbalists for female problems for centuries. No one knew exactly why, but it really seemed to help. Recently a series of tests were conducted and it was found that an as-yet-unidentified ingredient in the leaves causes smooth muscle fibers to obtain a normal tone. In specific studies of the uterus they found it would both relax a uterus that was too tense and cramping and would tighten up a uterus that was too soft and flaccid. It is easy to see why midwives always gave raspberry leaf to women for several weeks both pre and postpartum. They found that it made for an easier delivery and a faster rebound. It also stimulated the flow of milk after delivering a baby.

Damiana Leaf
Although best know as an aphrodisiac a reputation that goes all the way back to the Mayan civilization, that is not why it is used here. This herb contains volatile oils which are rich in beta sterols. These are natural plant created hormone like substances which can be used by the human body as hormones which may be missing in the endocrine cycle. In this case it allows the female body to have a substance which it can use to balance the female hormone cycle.

Squaw Vine
As you can probably guess from the name, the herb was used extensively by the American Indians for female problems. It did not take the pioneer ladies long to learn to depend upon it too. It was always taken quite heavily in the last weeks of pregnancy as it aided in carrying the child to full term and gave an easier delivery. It was also used to ward off threatened miscarriage and to reduce uterine cramps associated with menstruation. It was even admitted into the National Formulary as a treatment for female problems in 1926.

Cramp Bark
Once again we have an herb whose ability was so great that it soon gained a name to match its deeds. Cramp bark was greatly valued by Indians and pioneers alike for its ability to relax muscle spasms of all types. It worked on arms, legs, backs and especially well for internal cramps whether of the stomach, intestines or the uterus. Its action is very similar to that of Squaw Vine and both were frequently used together to relieve menstrual pains and to prevent miscarriage.

Black Cohosh
This herb has been found to have a vasodilating action that promotes better circulation. Thus it acts to help normalize blood pressure and create a general sense of relaxation. It also helps to relax uterine muscles and relieve cramps. It also contains some plant sterols which seem to have estrogenic activity.

Licorice Root
This is one of the most under rated herbs available to mankind. It is literally loaded with plant sterols, beta sitosterol and stigmasterol in particular, as well as glycosides, estriol, glizersterone and phytosterol. These are pro hormones.

Gotu Kola
This herb is not a part of the kola family and does not contain any caffeine. It is highly valued in the orient because it is a tonic herb loaded with compounds called adaptogens. Adaptogens help us cope with stressful situations. It has also been shown to have substances which stimulate the development of healthy connective tissue. It has been found effective in preventing scar and keloid formation cellulite, varicose and prolapsed veins, and it has remarkable anti stress and anti anxiety benefits as well as elevating mental function through improved acetylcholine production (a brain neurotransmitter required for clear thinking).

Saw Palmetto
This is an American herb which grows along the southeastern coast. The berries contain a high amount of fatty acids in conjunction with plant sterols. This combination makes it a very active herb, especially in assisting the body in balancing its hormone levels.
