Sage

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

Flaxseed Lignans
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.

Original Menopace 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 provide specific nutrients for the following key areas:

Overall Vitality & Wellbeing:

Menopace Plus provides Vitamins B1, B6 and B12, which contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system.

Maintaining healthy Hormone Regulation

During the menopause, levels of specific hormones can change. Menopace Plus contains vitamin B6 which contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity.

Cofactors for Bone Health

Bone health is particularly important for women during the menopause which is why 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 for Heart Health

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

Menopace Plus is available in the UK from Boots, Superdrug, Tesco, Waitrose, Morrisons, supermarkets and pharmacies, health stores including Holland & Barrett. Alternatively you can order online here.

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

What are the active ingredients?

Please see nutritional information click here 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

Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%, is this safe?

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

The Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) 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 NRV, 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% NRV.

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.
