The Benefits of Wilford’s Cynanchum for Menopause

This root from the milkweed family is indigenous to Korea and contains several medically active compounds. Cynanchum wilfordii, or Wilford’s Cynanchum, is a traditional Korean medicinal herb with incredible benefits for managing menopause symptoms.

  • Reduces Hot Flashes and Night Sweats: A study published in 2017 showed that using Cynanchum wilfordii extract reduced hot flashes and night sweats in menopausal women by up to 28% over an 8-week period. This is an encouraging result for those seeking relief from these uncomfortable symptoms.
  • Enhanced Sleep Quality: Another 2017 study found that Cynanchum wilfordii extract improved sleep quality in menopausal women after 8 weeks of treatment. This could be due to its ability to reduce hot flashes and night sweats, which are known to interfere with sleep.
  • Relieves Vaginal Dryness: Research has shown that Cynanchum wilfordii extract is effective at reducing vaginal dryness in postmenopausal women. This can lead to improved sex life as well as decreased risk of infection.
  • Improves Bone Mineral Density (BMD): A 2018 study found that taking Cynanchum wilfordii extract increased bone mineral density in postmenopausal women. This means it may help prevent osteoporosis, which is a common side effect of menopause.
  • Has Antioxidant Properties: Studies have shown that Cynanchum Wilfordii extract has antioxidant properties, which means it can help protect against oxidative damage caused by free radicals. This may improve overall health and wellbeing during menopause.

 As you can see, there are many potential benefits associated with using Cynanchum wilfordii extract for menopause relief. It may help reduce hot flashes and night sweats, improve sleep quality, relieve vaginal dryness, increase bone mineral density (BMD), and even provide antioxidant protection against oxidative damage caused by free radicals. If you’re looking for a natural way to manage your menopause symptoms, consider giving this traditional Korean medicinal herb a try!
