The useful supplements in menopause

Menopause is a natural and physiological phase that should not scare and whose symptoms can also be alleviated thanks to the intake of supplements.


Menopause is a physiological phase that every woman must go through sooner or later and which often brings with it symptoms and disorders that can worsen the quality of life.

What is menopause

Menopause, in a woman’s life, coincides with the cessation of the menstrual cycle and the loss of reproductive function.During the climacteric , i.e. the transition period from premenopause to postmenopause, a progressive reduction of ovarian activity occurs : starting from premenopause the levels of progesterone and estrogen decrease, while there is a progressive increase in the hormones FSH and LH , until reaching a plateau and the cessation of menstruation.

The disorders that can occur during menopause are different and vary from woman to woman in intensity, type and duration. The climacteric phase is generally between 42 and 54 years old and can last up to ten years, a period in which most women show a series of typical symptoms and ailments.

Disorders of menopause

Major menopausal disorders include vasomotor symptoms leading to hot flashes and night sweats .

Often, these symptoms are accompanied by sleep disturbances , irritability, and mood swings, such as depression and anxiety . Also, during menopause you can feel fatigued, have difficulty concentrating or suffer from breast tenderness.

In the postmenopausal period, disorders of the urogenital system may then appear, with vaginal dryness , irritation, incontinence and decreased desire . To these are added bone and joint disorders (osteoporosis and joint pain), cardiovascular disorders and metabolic alterations that can lead to an increase in body weight .

Generally, hormone replacement therapy is used to relieve the symptoms of menopause, but it is also possible to obtain relief through supplements formulated to promote the well-being of women at this stage of life.
Supplements for menopause

The supplements useful for menopause are formulated with ingredients of plant origin capable of relieving the typical symptoms of this period and improving the quality of life.

Among these we find phytoestrogens, substances that perform an action similar to estrogen , and capable of relieving hot flashes, night sweats, problems affecting the uro-genital system and bones.

Species rich in phytoestrogens are for example soy Glycine max ), pueraria or “kudzu” ( Pueraria lobata ) and red clover ( Trifolium pratense ) characterized by high quantities of isoflavones and cumestranes.

In addition to phytoestrogens, supplements for menopause also contain other plant extracts that can promote blood circulation, relieve migraines, counteract mood disorders, improve sexual desire and prevent weight gain.

The Profem plus supplement , easily available in pharmacies and parapharmacies, is for example formulated with extracts of griffonia ( Griffonia simplicifolia ) and green tea ( Camellia sinensis ): the former is a species used to promote relaxation (sleep) and mental well-being and it is useful in case of mood disorders while green tea is known for its antioxidant and tonic action, to promote concentration, memory and counteract physical and mental fatigue. Furthermore,

both griffonia and green tea help maintain a healthy weight, an important aspect not only from the aesthetic point of view but also to avoid an excessive load on the bones which, with age and menopause, tend to weaken.Profem plus exploits these extracts in synergy with the isoflavones of soy , kunzu and red clover and is enriched with zinc , a mineral that promotes the immune system response and helps regulate the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats and keep bones healthy.Finally, Profem is gluten-free and naturally lactose-free and contains probiotics that help keep the intestinal microbiota healthy and balanced, which is important for the well-being of the whole body as it is involved in the immune response, mood regulation and assimilation. of macro and micronutrients essential for the correct functioning of the organism. 

The 6 probiotic microorganisms contained in Profem plus are in a “gastroprotected microencapsulated” form. 
The use of this production technique guarantees the vitality of the microorganisms even during the gastro-intestinal transit.
