Women are increasingly looking to maintain health naturally during the menopause.
Menopace® is a comprehensive formulation of 21 nutrients, which can be taken alongside or independently of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).
During menopause, a woman's ovaries produce less oestrogen and progesterone.
Menopace® includes vitamin B6 to contribute to the regulation of hormonal activity.
Menopace® also provides vitamin B12 and thiamin (vit. B1), which contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system.
It also contains moderate dietary levels of Soya Isoflavone extract (20mg), to provide Daidzein, Glycitein and Genistein isoflavones which are naturally occurring plant compounds.
Oestrogen has a positive effect on the production of collagen, a substance that forms part of the bone matrix and is known to help keep skin supple and taut.
After the menopause, oestrogen levels and hence collagen production can significantly decline.
Menopace® includes vitamin C which contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin, cartilage, bones and blood vessels.
Bone health is particularly important for women during and after the menopause.
Menopace® provides magnesium, zinc and vitamin D which contribute to the maintenance of normal bones.
Vitamin D also contributes to the absorption and utilisation of calcium from the diet.
Menopace® is designed to be taken in conjunction with a calcium supplement such as Osteocare®.
It is thought that lower oestrogen levels may influence heart and cardiovascular health in older women.
Menopace® includes thiamin (vit.B1) which contributes to the normal function of the heart whilst folate, vitamins B12 and B6 contribute to normal homocysteine metabolism.
Maintaining healthy lower levels of the blood amino acid homocysteine is independently linked with heart health.
