Menopace® Plus

Menopace® Plus is a specially formulated food supplement for women during the menopause who are looking for even greater support. Menopace® Plus provides a unique formula in a handy dual pack combining the original micronutrient tablets with unique active botanical tablets.

With Sage Extract

Plus Active Botanical tablet:

New Menopace® Plus contains an 'active botanical' tablet to be taken alongside the micronutrient tablet. This has been specially formulated for women who are looking for extra nutritional support during this time of change. Each tablet contains an additional 100mg of Soya Isoflavone extract, 250mg Sage extract, 50mg Green Tea extract and 50mg of Flaxseed Lignans.

Active Botanical Tablet provides:

High strength soya isoflavones

Soya is one of the richest natural sources of Isoflavones including Diadzein, Glycitein and Genistein.

With Flaxseed Lignans

Sage

Native to the Mediterranean, Sage is a member of the mint family and is known for its common use as a kitchen herb. Sage is also thought to contribute to the moderation of sweating.

Flaxseed lignans

Lignans are phytonutrients which occur naturally in flax and unrefined grains. Flaxseed has a natural lignan content that is more than 100 times higher than other plant sources. The extract used in Menopace® Plus undergoes a patented partitioning process to provide 10-30 times more lignans.

Green tea

Green Tea has been popular in China for thousands of years, but only recently has the Western world been drawn to using it. The Green tea in Menopace® Plus contains standardised extract of 55% polyphenols, the active components of green tea. Green Tea contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress and may be useful as we get older.

Original Multi-nutrient tablet

The menopause is a natural stage of life that every woman goes through. Thousands of women worldwide have discovered that Menopace®, the UK's No.1 selling supplement for this stage of life, provides effective nutritional support.

The micronutrient tablets provides specific nutrients for the following key areas:

Overall vitality & wellbeing:

Menopace® Plus provides vitamin B1, B6 & B12, which contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system.

Maintaining healthy hormone balance:

Vitamin B6 also contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity.

Cofactors to help keep your bones strong and healthy

Bone health is particularly important for women during the menopause and Menopace® Plus contains magnesium, zinc and vitamin D3 which contribute to the maintenance of normal bones. Menopace® Plus is designed to be taken in conjunction with a calcium supplement such as Osteocare®.

Nutrients to help maintain heart health

Maintaining heart and cardiovascular wellbeing is especially important for older women. Menopace® Plus provides vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid which contribute to normal homocysteine metabolism plus thiamin (vit. B1) which contributes to the normal function of the heart. The handy dual pack contains day marked blister sheets to help you remember to take both tablets each day.

Menopace® Plus FAQ

Why has Menopace® Plus been developed?

Menopace® Plus has been developed by a team of experts including highly qualified pharmacists and nutritionists, and is based upon scientific research evidence, as a nutritional safeguard for women during and after the menopause. The menopause marks the end of the reproductive period when the ovaries stop producing oestrogen. At this time certain vitamins and minerals are particularly important. Each Menopace® tablet contains a comprehensive combination of nutrients, especially for this time including vitamin B6 which contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity. Vitamin D plus magnesium contribute to the maintenance of normal bones plus biotin, pantothenic acid & vitamin B12 with copper and iron which contribute to normal energy release. Menopace® Plus also contains a unique active botanical tablet providing Sage, Green Tea, Flaxseed Lignans and extra Soya Isoflavones for those looking for even greater support. Green Tea extract for example contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.[Top]

When is Menopace® Plus recommended?

Menopace® Plus is an a comprehensive supplement specially formulated for during and after the menopause, and can be continued after the menopause for as long as required. There is no maximum length of time over which Menopace® Plus can be used. Menopace® Plus is also recommended for those women who have an early menopause.[Top]

Can Menopace® Plus be used simultaneously with HRT medications?

Generally, Menopace® Plus may be used along-side medications such as HRT because it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals, and it is free of any drugs or hormones. For specific advice on taking Menopace® Plus with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first.[Top]

How and when should Menopace® Plus be used?

One tablet and one active botanical tablet per day are recommended with or immediately after your main meal, swallow with water or a cold drink. Taking the tablet with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients, and can reduce nausea, which is sometimes experienced if multivitamins are taken on an empty stomach. Menopace® Plus should only be taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Menopace® Plus is taken with plenty of liquid to wash the tablets down.[Top]

Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Menopace® Plus ?

Menopace® Plus has no known side effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended tablet intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately.[Top]

How long does it take before experiencing any benefit in relation to health and general well being?

Results vary amongst individuals, but in most cases we would expect the beneficial effects of the vitamins and minerals in Menopace® Plus to build over several weeks. A regular intake is recommended.[Top]

Is Menopace® Plus recommended with any other Vitabiotics product(s)?

Calcium is a mineral, especially required during the menopause, which is needed for the maintenance of normal bones. Menopace®, Menopace® Plus and Menopace® Night have therefore been designed so that they can be used with Vitabiotics Osteocare® range. There is no need to take additional Osteocare® if you use Menopace® with Calcium.[Top]

Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common - do you have any advice?

Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease.

The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help.

Some Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) levels are above 100%, is this safe?

Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the RDA, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the RDA. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to be considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.

The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the RDA, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% RDA.

All Vitabiotics products has been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.

Vitabiotics avoids 'mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.
