Meet Endogize, EndoFlex and Sclaressence.
Endogize is one of Young Living’s strongest supplements and is designed for both men and women. In my research I saw conflicting articles on who it was specifically designed for, yet the conclusion one could draw from the ingredients in this one is that yes, both can take it and it is equally beneficial for both men and women.
For a more performance enhancing supplement, Powergize would be the next choice.
Endogize has a number of ingredients including naturally derived DHEA from wild yams, muira puama root, Epimedium leaf, Eurycoma Longifolia Root Extract, and Ahswagandha. Most of these ingredients are adaptogenic, meaning, they are natural substances which are considered to help the body adapt to stress and to exert a normalizing effect upon bodily processes. In other words, Adaptogens are plants and mushrooms that help your body respond to stress, anxiety, fatigue and overall wellbeing. Adaptogens bring your body back to a steady balance by managing both physical and mental stressors.
The first one is Muira puama, which has adaptogen like characteristics but isn’t considered an actually adaptogen. This plant possesses antioxidant and neuroprotective properties as well as health benefits associated with stressful situations. This is why It’s said to have those characteristics and could possibly be helpful during times of stress.
Also, Muira puama is used for preventing sexual disorders and to increase interest in sexual activity (as an aphrodisiac).
Epimedium is another herb in Endogize that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat fatigue, arthritic pain, nerve pain, and sexual dysfunction, (think erectile dysfunction). I hope you’re seeing a pattern of uses for these specific herbs.
Eurycoma longifolia is yet another herb used for erectile dysfunction (ED), male infertility, increasing sexual desire in healthy people, and boosting athletic performance.
Ashwagandha is the last herb that I want to mention in our supplement here. This is one that is worth a further look for all manner of help and stress reducing.
Ashwagandha is a medicinal herb that assists with several health situations such as improving blood sugar levels, reducing inflammation, improving mood and memory, reducing stress and anxiety, as well as a boost in muscle strength and fertility. Pretty much reducing stress and anxiety seem to be thematic when researching adaptogens in general, but particularly Ashwagandha. Again, this one is worth taking a further look at on your own researching time. As a reminder, it is also a key ingredient in Powergize, one which we will look more closely at in the new year.
Endoflex is an essential oil blend found in both the Vitality line, (meaning you can take it internally) and as a topical oil. Both are the same formula, it’s just you cannot sell a cosmetic usage product as a dietary supplement. So, you simply work around such rules.
This is, as the name implies, an essential oil created for support to the endocrine system, with a further nod to the thyroid. It is recommended to use in conjunction with Thyromin. In order to maximize healthy thyroid function.
The oils blended in Endoflex are Geranium, Spearmint, Sage, Myrtle, Nutmeg , & German Chamomile. Each of these supports the endocrine system beautifully, yet if you find yourself needing more support in a certain area, consider adding one of the single oils that target that specific need. For example- I often use endoflex over my adrenal glands and top it off with Nutmeg in the morning. Or when I ma needing a little more hormone support, I will add geranium and/or Myrtle over my abdomen after the endoflex. Layering essential oils is a stunning way to increase more targeted support.
On an emotional level, EndoFlex helps the mind become more relaxed, and balanced while increasing the feeling of a high self worth and esteem. When used intentionally, this oil blend will release the emotion of sick and tired, and/or control and stuck. Endoflex is an oil that really helps with balance, even more so that Valor, if I’m honest as it helps you see your work vs play with fresh eyes, because your endocrine system becomes more in balance. For example- if you are more prone to play or pause because work requires a lot of energy, Endoflex gives you that gumption needed to get a move on. It energizes us or even renews our energy to make necessary changes to a relationship, projects we are involved with, or just something that is needing a significant shift in the right direction.
When you hear the word Sclaressence, I hope you think balance, balance, balance! There are only four oils in the one, Peppermint, Sage Lavender, Fennel and Clary Sage-with Clary Sage being the top oil in the blend. As we know, Clary Sage has been long used to balance women’s bodies by righting their moods and hormones. Sclaressence will help women understand that their first loyalty is to themselves. As women, we may tend to over give and not give to ourselves which, honestly, can lead to imbalance both physically and emotionally, as well as spiritually. It also gives women the perspective of self care and self love is critical when caring for others. We cannot love and care for others properly or effectively if we do not do this for ourselves.
I'd love to hear you findings either after using these three or if you have been using them already, share with the class what has worked and why!
