The menopause is a natural stage of life that every woman goes through as oestrogen levels decline. It usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age, but this can vary considerably.
Thousands of women worldwide have discovered that Menopace, the UK’s No.1 selling supplement for this stage of life, provides effective nutritional support. Menopace is the most trusted menopause supplement brand*.
Optimal nutrition is important during and after the menopause. Menopace Original is an effective one-a-day supplement of 22 nutrients scientifically formulated to be taken during and after this period of change.
During the menopause, levels of specific hormones can change. Menopace contains vitamin B6 which contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity.
Helping to Maintain Menopausal Health
Menopace also provides vitamin B12 and thiamin (vitamin B1), which contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system. The comprehensive formula also contains moderate dietary levels of Soya Isoflavone extract (20mg).
Skin and Hair
As in many stages of life, fluctuations in hormones can affect the skin and hair. Oestrogen has a positive effect on the production of collagen, a substance that forms part of the bone matrix and skin structure. 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, teeth, bones and blood vessels. Menopace also provides biotin which contributes to normal skin health and zinc which contributes to normal hair health.
It is thought that lower oestrogen levels may influence heart and cardiovascular health in older women. Menopace includes thiamin (vitamin B1) which contributes to the normal heart function, whilst vitamins B6 and B12 plus folate contribute to normal homocysteine metabolism. Maintaining healthy lower levels of the blood amino acid homocysteine is independently linked with heart health.
Bone health is particularly important for women during and after the menopause, as bone mass significantly declines. Menopace provides magnesium, zinc and vitamin D which contribute to the maintenance of normal bones. Menopace Original provides 10µg vitamin D, the level recommended as a daily supplement by the UK Department of Health, especially during the autumn and winter.Vitamin D also contributes to the absorption and utilisation of calcium from the diet. Menopace Original is designed to be taken in conjunction with a calcium supplement such as Osteocare.
Vitamin B12, biotin and minerals copper and iron contribute to normal energy release, plus vitamin D contributes to normal function of the immune system.
