Blossom Phase 2



(Blossom Phase 2) – This formula is taken during phase 2 of the menses after bleeding during the Follicular phase.

In Chinese medicine the Follicular phase of the cycle requires the body to have a strong energy reserves, sufficient supply of blood, yin and body fluids in order to produce a good quality egg. These tend to decline with age, overwork, lack of nourishment, and overexertion over a long period of time. Chinese herbs can be very helpful in managing the symptoms of this pattern.

This formula helps tonify the blood and yin and hormones needed for this particular phase.

The Follicular phase of the cycle, is the week after finishing menstruation leading up to ovulation. This is the when the body is working hard to grow that ovarian follicle into a healthy, good, quality egg. During this phase, the hormone estrogen increases, causing the lining or the endometrium of the uterus to thicken in order to receive a fertilized egg should you become pregnant. The increase of another hormone, FSH or follicle-stimulating hormone, stimulates the growth of ovarian follicles. Usually each follicle contains an egg and by late in the follicular phase only a single follicle will remain active. This surge in estrogen helps to thicken the endometrium and trigger a spike in another hormone called LH or Luteinizing hormone. This increase in LH causes the follicle to rupture and release an egg this is the precise moment in which ovulation occurs.
