For many women, the transition from pre- to post-menopause can be arduous. Changing hormone levels can lead to increased risk for both heart disease and osteoporosis, while inducing uncomfortable shorter-term issues such as vasomotor symptoms (hot flushes, night sweats), insomnia, vaginal dryness, mood changes, and reduction in libido.
MenoVantage PE is a potent formulation of botanicals and nutrients at clinically relevant doses for reducing peri-menopausal symptoms. Black cohosh (Actaea racemosa) is one of the most studied botanical extracts for menopausal symptom relief. Randomized double-blinded trials have shown a reduction in climacteric symptoms without an estrogenic effect when a standardized extract is used. Chasteberry (Vitex agnus-castus) extract is well known for modulating FSH/LH levels and mitigating premenstrual symptoms, and holds promise for reducing menopausal symptoms as well, particularly difficulty sleeping. Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis) has a long history of use in traditional medicine for reducing menopausal symptoms.
The traditional botanicals found in MenoVantage PE are complemented by gamma-oryzanol, derived from rice bran. This natural substance has been found not only to reduce menopausal symptoms in 85% of participants, but also to improve cardiovascular risk factors, including LDL-cholesterol, a concern for many perimenopausal women. Hesperidin, a citrus bioflavonoid derived from oranges, provides relief for vasomotor symptoms of menopause, as well as potent anti-inflammatory and metabolic benefits.
