Women Formula Testimony.
My name is George.
“I bought the Women Formula for my wife about two weeks ago and have started noticing certain changes in her response and drive for sex. Since I married her she has never initiated sex and even if I make the attempt to initiate it, her response does not show one who is much interested. But since I introduced the Women Formula to her everything has changed completely.
This past Sunday 17th March, 2019 she did not go to church. On my return she prepared fufu with light soup and after joining me in the meal, she held me to the bedroom for a hot afternoon sex.
The next day, Monday she waited for me to dress and just as I was about leaving for work she held me to the bed to make love to her before leaving. That day, I got to work late.
The Tuesday following, she got home before me and actually came to back to wait for on the street I normally pass. When we got home, she went straight to the bathroom and on her return she literally dragged me from the living room to the bedroom for hours of sex. I am so elated with the coming of this Women Formula. The Women Formula tea has really revitalised my marriage. She also sleeps very well at night. God bless Dr. NYARKOTEY for coming up with the medication to save our marriages”.
Ingredients research details.
The Hibiscus is known to help women to reclaim their sexuality, vitality and authenticity and has aided many women who have been sexually traumatized. It also helps women to overcome all that stereotypical, degrading imagery that the media pumps out at us which leads us to feeling a combination of inadequacy, shame, belittlement and a sense of being objectified (and this goes for men too). Hibiscus apparently also helps to promote a steady flow of loving kindness throughout the body and soul — an important trait of the feminine aspect of sexuality.
“Hibiscus flower and leaf is used to regulate menstrual cycle and to treat problems incurred during the menstrual period,” says Patrick Kabugo, a researcher and herbalist. He explains that the drink stimulates blood flow in the uterus or the pelvic region because it has shown emmenagogue effects”.
Hibiscus tea can be one of the best health drinks for women. Do you know why? Well, it contains all the essential antioxidants to fight against the aging signs and makes a woman look 5 times younger than her actual age. Besides this, it calms the hot flashes during menopause times. You might not understand this unless you have gone through it. Women, who have experienced this discomforting hormonal imbalance will know how vital it is to consume something that relaxes the annoying side effects of menopause. Moreover, benefits of hibiscus tea are highly effective for curing acne not only in women but also for men.
According to studies keeping your intake of antioxidants up is a great way to prevent health issues, and hibiscus has the bonus of also containing loads of the well-known antioxidant vitamin C. In a Taiwanese laboratory study, extract from Hibiscus sabdariffa was found to be toxic to cancer cells, and especially effective in killing human gastric carcinoma cells, and has also been shown to kill leukaemia cells.
Hibiscus extract has even shown promise in adding metabolic function which is great news for those with metabolic syndrome or anyone looking to lose weight, particularly if you suffer from obesity. Studies have found after just one month with daily doses an impressive improvement in glucose, cholesterol and triglyceride levels as well as insulin resistance. Even more impressive is the decrease it causes in serum free fatty acids, high levels of which are associated with obesity and uncontrolled diabetes.
There is no denying the powerful healing benefits of this deliciously fragrant tropical drink, with new studies continually proving the benefits of what the Egyptian Pharaohs enjoyed as a refreshing, healing beverage. As with most potent natural healers, it is not to be enjoyed in large amounts without caution, and should be avoided by pregnant women altogether. Researchers attribute these effects of hibiscus extract to the potent levels of polyphenol compounds, found in hibiscus flowers, also recognized for their disease prevention, antioxidant and anti-aging properties.
The dried calyces of the hibiscus flower used to brew the tea are known to contain high levels of antioxidants essential to our body’s natural daily detox efforts. They also work to prevent disease and fight low-grade chronic inflammation, which research has linked to cancer, heart disease, diabetes, IBS, Crohn’s and so many more chronic diseases and health issues.
Extracts from the Hibiscus sabdariffa flower prevent bacteria from adhering to the urinary tract, and a recent six-month study involving forty women with a history of frequent UTIs revealed that the use of hibiscus extract decreased the likeliness of infection by 89 percent. Hibiscus boasts a range of powerful compounds that prevent E. coli from adhering to the urinary tract and bladder wall linings. Both the flower and calyx are abundant in bacteriostatic polyphenols, including flavonoids, sambubiosides, and proanthocyanidins. In particular, the flavonoid gossypetin (-hexahydroxy flavone) found in hibiscus has been identified as a distinct antimicrobial compound with powerful effects.
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, clinical trial, women taking hibiscus experienced a 77% reduction in UTIs. Sixty-one women participated in the 6-month study, and 59 women completed the entire study. All of them had a history of frequent UTIs (more than four per year, including one or more in the three months prior to the start of the study). The women were randomly assigned to one of three groups receiving a daily dose of 200 mg of hibiscus extract standardized to 90% polyphenols; 200 mg of hibiscus extract standardized to 60% polyphenols; or placebo. Compared to the control group, women taking the hibiscus concentrations experienced a 77% decrease in infections, as well as overall improvement in urinary comfort.
According to in vitro research, hibiscus also reduces contamination of both E. coli and Candida albicans, the fungus responsible for yeast infections. The antimicrobial effect was found to be immediate and complete after only one day. In addition, when hibiscus was compared to cranberry in vitro, the hibiscus had a stronger antimicrobial effect, particularly against Candida albicans. Consuming hibiscus tea daily during weight loss may help lower high blood pressure and cholesterol levels. A review published in 2013 in the journal “Fitoterapia” reports that although more research is needed to determine specific recommendations, consuming hibiscus tea lowers blood pressure in people with type 2 diabetes. The review showed that the tea may help lower total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglyceride levels, while increasing high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, which is the good cholesterol.
Ginger (Zingiberofficinale), on the other hand in this invention is used for ages in the East, has a very peculiar flavor. It is slightly sweet, refreshing, and spicy. The part that use is the rhizome because of its properties. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger, responsible for much of its medicinal properties. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. According to a review of 12 studies that included a total of 1,278 pregnant women, 1.1-1.5 grams of ginger can significantly reduce symptoms of nausea.
In one study, consuming 2 grams of ginger per day, for 11 days, significantly reduced muscle pain in people performing elbow exercises. Ginger does not have an immediate impact, but may be effective at reducing the day-to-day progression of muscle pain. These effects are believed to be mediated by the anti-inflammatory properties.
Osteoarthritis is a common health problem. It involves degeneration of the joints in the body, leading to symptoms like joint pain and stiffness. In a controlled trial of 247 people with osteoarthritis of the knee, those who took ginger extract had less pain and required less pain medication. This area of research is relatively new, but ginger may have powerful anti-diabetic properties. In a recent 2015 study of 41 participants with type 2 diabetes, 2 grams of ginger powder per day lowered fasting blood sugar by 12%. It also dramatically improved HbA1c (a marker for long-term blood sugar levels), leading to a 10% reduction over a period of 12 weeks. There was also a 28% reduction in the ApoB/ApoA-I ratio, and a 23% reduction in markers for oxidized lipoproteins. These are both major risk factors for heart disease.
Chronic indigestion (dyspepsia) is characterized by recurrent pain and discomfort in the upper part of the stomach. It is believed that delayed emptying of the stomach is a major driver of indigestion. Interestingly, ginger has been shown to speed up emptying of the stomach in people with this condition. After eating soup, ginger reduced the time it took for the stomach to empty from 16 to 12 minutes. In a study of 24 healthy individuals, 1.2 grams of ginger powder before a meal accelerated emptying of the stomach by 50%.
Menstrual pain (dysmenorrhea) refers to pain felt during a woman’s menstrual cycle. One of the traditional uses of ginger is for pain relief, including menstrual pain. In one study, 150 women were instructed to take 1 gram of ginger powder per day, for the first 3 days of the menstrual period. Ginger managed to reduce pain as effectively as the drugs mefenamic acid and ibuprofen. High levels of LDL lipoproteins (the “bad” cholesterol) are linked to an increased risk of heart disease. The foods you eat can have a strong influence on LDL levels. In a 45-day study of 85 individuals with high cholesterol, 3 grams of ginger powder caused significant reductions in most cholesterol markers. This is supported by a study in hypothyroid rats, where ginger extract lowered LDL cholesterol to a similar extent as the cholesterol-lowering drug atorvastatin .Both studies also showed reductions in total cholesterol and blood triglycerides. Cancer is a very serious disease that is characterized by uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells. Ginger extract has been studied as an alternative treatment for several forms of cancer. The anti-cancer properties are attributed to 6-gingerol, a substance that is found in large amounts in raw ginger. In a study of 30 individuals, 2 grams of ginger extract per day significantly reduced pro-inflammatory signalling molecules in the colon .However; a follow-up study in individuals at a high risk of colon cancer did not confirm these findings. There is some, though limited, evidence that ginger may be effective against pancreatic cancer, breast cancer and ovarian cancer.
Oxidative stress and chronic inflammation can accelerate the aging process. They are believed to be among the key drivers of Alzheimer’s disease and age-related cognitive decline. Some studies in animals suggest that the antioxidants and bioactive compounds in ginger can inhibit inflammatory responses that occur in the brain. There is also some evidence that ginger can enhance brain function directly. In a study of 60 middle-aged women, ginger extract was shown to improve reaction time and working memory. There are also numerous studies in animals showing that ginger can protect against age-related decline in brain function.
Gingerol, the bioactive substance in fresh ginger, can help lower the risk of infections. In fact, ginger extract can inhibit the growth of many different types of bacteria (29, 30). It is very effective against the oral bacteria linked to inflammatory diseases in the gums, such as gingivitis and periodontitis . Fresh ginger may also be effective against the RSV virus, a common cause of respiratory infections. Ginger increases blood flow, especially to the sexual organs. It also warms the blood and optimizes body’s temperature. Many cultures have used ginger as an aphrodisiac, as it can be made into a sweet tea or added to soups. As for its other benefits, ginger is also high in potassium, magnesium, and copper. It is a great anti-nausea substance, and has anti-inflammatory effects.
Considering the trend of changing features of the hormonal imbalance during the menstrual cycle and/or menopause, as well as the variations in the specific hormonal imbalance from person to person, it would be advantageous to introduce a compound which adapts to meet the specific needs of each person, both over time and from person to person. Herbs have been found to meet such needs says Thomas Newmark and Paul Schulick 1999.
The human body is able to identify the chemical components in which it is deficient. An interesting and important feature of herbal interaction with the human body is the fact that the body will only absorb from an herbal compound those chemical components in which the body is deficient. Those chemical components of the herbal compound which are not needed simply pass through the body without undue stress placed on the body. Thus, although it is known to use certain herbs to relieve symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance in women, the benefits associated with the use of herbs makes it continually desirable to provide alternative herbal compositions for providing such relief. It is also continually desirable to provide an herbal composition which, in addition to relieving symptoms of hormonal imbalance, is also able to scavenge oxygen free radicals, thus providing antioxidant benefits.
In conclusion women’s formula is for the general wellbeing of women.
