Agnocasto


Explanation:
Si usano gli estratti dei fiori di questa pianta della macchia mediterranea; in farmacia (e forse anche in erboristeria) si trovano preparati liquidi o in compresse, ognuno ha dosaggi molto diversi (si passa dai 4 mg al giorno dei tedeschi, ai 20 mg al giorno degli svizzeri ai 300 mg per capsula del preparato italiano). Questa erba contiene due tipi diversi di progesterone, in Svizzera viene usata per attenuare i sintomi premestruali (ci sono anche studi clinici in internet), in Italia per attenuare i disagi legati alla menopausa, in Germania è normalmente usata per regolarizzare il ciclo e anche perché aiuta l'annidamento dell'uovo fecondato.
