Menopause Complex

Red Clover is a flowering plant that women have used for centuries to help relieve common menopausal symptoms.  Red clover contains isoflavones, a type of phytoestrogen.  Phytoestrogens have a similar chemical makeup to oestrogen, the female hormone that declines as a woman goes through the menopause. Hence why red clover is used to ease menopausal symptoms.

The average age for a woman in the UK to reach the menopause is 51 and usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age.  However, some women experience the menopause much earlier, either naturally or because of cancer treatment for example.  Regardless of age, the symptoms women experience during the menopause are unpleasant to say the least.  The ten most common symptoms during the menopause are:

  • Hot flushes
  • Fatigue/low energy
  • Dry skin
  • Problems sleeping
  • Changes in mood
  • Weight gain
  • Night sweats
  • Brain fog
  • Stress
  • Cognitive changes

Our new product development team have carefully selected ingredients to help ease these symptoms.  In addition to Red Clover Extract our Menopause Complex contains the following ingredients:

Magnesium

Magnesium may be one of the most important health-promoting minerals.  Magnesium is involved in energy production, nerve function, muscle relaxation and bone and tooth formation.  Research indicates that magnesium is beneficial for the prevention and treatment of heart disease.  It may increase bone density in postmenopausal women, helping to stem the onset of osteoporosis.

 Vitamin B1

Also known as Thiamin.  Most of us get enough thiamine in our diets to meet our basic needs, but many nutritionists believe that some people, especially older adults, are mildly deficient in this B vitamin, which makes a vital contribution to a healthy metabolism, a properly functioning nervous system and helps with the normal function of the heart.

 Vitamin B2

Also known as Riboflavin.  It has been credited with counteracting migraines, preventing sight-robbing cataracts, healing skin blemishes and much more.

Vitamin B3

Often referred to as Niacin.  Niacin is needed to release carbohydrate foods.  It’s also involved in controlling blood sugar, keeping skin healthy and maintaining the proper function of the nervous and digestive systems.  Niacin can help maintain a healthy brain and nerve cells and there’s some evidence to indicate that it can help ease depression, anxiety, and insomnia.

Biotin & Vitamin B5

These two vitamins play a vital role in sustaining efficient metabolic function.  Biotin helps promote healthy hair, skin, and nails.  It also helps the body to use carbohydrates, fats and protein and may improve blood-sugar control in people with diabetes.  Vitamin B5 helps promote a healthy nervous system and may alleviate migraines and indigestion.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is probably involved in more bodily processes than any other vitamin.  Many women do not obtain enough of this critically important nutrient from their daily diets.  As well as regulating hormonal activity vitamin B6 can help prevent cardiovascular disease and strokes, can help to lift depression and ease insomnia.

Vitamin B12

This vitamin is plentiful in most people’s diets however after the age of 50 people have a limited ability to absorb it from food, therefore supplements may be beneficial.  Vitamin B12 is used to help treat and prevent anaemia.  It also helps support the normal function of nervous system, normal psychological function, normal function of the immune system and can also reduce tiredness and fatigue.

Folic Acid

Folic acid is necessary for every function in the body that requires cell multiplication.  It helps produce key chemicals for the brain and nervous system, yet nine out of ten adults consume too little of this vital nutrient.

Every women’s experience of the menopause is different and there’s no one size fits all.  What may work for one, may not work for another.  Menopause is not an illness, it’s a natural part of life, though its symptoms can be difficult to deal with.  Our Menopause Complex provides important vitamins and minerals to help alleviate and prevent these symptoms.
