Emerita's new and improved formula, now paraben-free.

Many women have found Emerita Phytoestrogen Body Cream, either used alone or in concert with Emerita Pro-gest, to be an effective product for maintaining hormonal balance.

The word "phytoestrogen" comes from "phyto," meaning plant, and "estrogen" due to the ability to affect estrogenic activity in the body. It is important to know that although phytoestrogens may have some similar actions to estrogens, they are not true estrogens such as our bodies produce.

Phytoestrogens can either act as weak estrogens, or provide precursors to substances that affect our estrogen activity. To understand how phytoestrogens work, it is important to understand a little about how our hormones work in general.

Viewed simplistically, hormones are typically manufactured and released by various glands, organs and tissues into our blood stream where they can then travel to target tissues. These target tissues contain receptor sites that are specific to certain hormones. When the hormones bind to the receptor sites, they can initiate an effect on the target tissue.

Phytoestrogens can bind to estrogen receptors in our bodies and have either pro-estrogenic effects, or anti-estrogenic effects on the target tissues. How it affects the tissues depends in part on how much estrogen our bodies are already producing and how saturated our receptor sites are. If our estrogen levels are low, as in menopause, empty estrogen receptor sites can be filled with phytoestrogens, which can exert a weak pro-estrogenic effect (phytoestrogens may be anywhere from 1/100th to 1/1000th the strength of estradiol. If our estrogen levels are high, as in some women who suffer from PMS, then phytoestrogens can compete with our own estrogens for binding to receptors. When the phytoestrogens are successful, they decrease overall estrogenic activity because their effect on the target tissues is less than if estradiol had been allowed to bind.

Many plants contain phytoestrogens, some of which include Red Clover, Licorice, and Soy. These plants have been used to balance hormones and control fertility throughout history.

There has been a resurgence of phytoestrogen research of late as women demand alternatives to conventional hormone replacement therapy. Some studies report positive findings on bone loss reduction in women supplementing with soy phytoestrogens. Other research points to reduction of cardiovascular disease risk similar to that seen with estrogen replacement therapy (ERT). More...

Natural Support for Sexual Vitality.

Emerita Response Cream is a topical cream formulated to support normal female sexual arousal. The arousal phase of female sexual response is characterized by increased blood flow to the clitoris and vagina, causing swelling and heightened sensation in the clitoris, along with vaginal lubrication.

Research has demonstrated that nitric oxide produced by the body promotes blood vessel dilation in the female genital tissues. Emerita Response Cream is a topical formulation that supports this arousal phase with herbs and amino acids that support nitric oxide production and hormone balance.

This new product was created in response to evidence that up to 43% of American women may suffer from some form of sexual dysfunction.
