Nutritional balance during and after the menopause
Optimal nutrition is important during and after the menopause. Menopace is an effective one-a-day supplement of 22 nutrients scientifically formulated for 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), 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 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.
Nutrients for Heart 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.
Minerals for Bone 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. 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.
Vitamin B12, biotin and minerals copper and iron contribute to normal energy release, plus vitamin D contributes to normal function of the immune system.
