Who should use Meno Support?
For all women who are
- are entering menopause (perimenopause)
- are in the menopause (menopause) and also for
- after menopause (postmenopause)
to compensate somewhat for the decline in estrogen naturally and without side effects, and to reduce the associated mood disorders.
In addition, the increased need for certain micronutrients during and after menopause is balanced and the risk of osteoporosis is reduced.
Signs and accompanying symptoms of menopause
Menopause usually announces itself in women from their mid-40s with irregular and absent periods, sometimes heavier or lighter. In addition, there are unpleasant symptoms such as:
- Hot flashes
- Reduced desire
- sleeping problems
- body aches (muscles, bones)
- exhaustion and listlessness
- mood swings
Of course, this reduces the overall quality of life of women - even measurable in studies with the "Quality of Life Index". Those who experience menopause themselves or have witnessed it in someone in their family or circle of acquaintances will be able to confirm this.
Those who have not yet experienced it themselves or with someone can imagine menopause like the premenstrual phase in even more unpleasant, because the hormonal fluctuations are more extreme. Especially during perimenopause and menopause, there are more significant fluctuations between estrogens and progesterone. First estrogen increases more than normal and then permanently low estrogen levels occur during menopause.
In addition to the directly perceptible lower quality of life due to all the mood disorders, there is also a significantly increased risk of osteoporosis due to the lowered estrogen levels.
How plant extracts and micronutrients can help
The decrease in estrogens, which is ultimately responsible for all the mood disorders (hot flashes, sweating, reduced desire, sleep problems), can be compensated for in particular by natural phytoestrogens. These plant substances are similar in structure to the body's own estrogens and can thus dock onto the estrogen receptors and develop effects comparable to those of the body's own estrogens.
That is why Meno Support contains a special soy extract with a very high isoflavone content in a scientifically proven dosage of 60mg.
Fewer hot flashes and improvement in quality of life:
Included in this systematic review and meta-analysis is a study that looked at whether women would tend to use a non-hormonal treatment if it produced a 50% reduction in hot flashes - which soy isoflavones can. 70% of women would rather go for the herbal option with no side effects.
The scientists even explicitly say that the results of all the studies analyzed justify the recommendation that women who do not want hormone treatment should try isoflavones for menopausal hot flash relief.
