Getting Relief! Natural menopause supplements…



If you are feeling the effects of any of the menopause symptoms to the point where they are interfering with your ‘normal’ life or causing upset and anxiety; hot flushes, mood swings, weight gain, sleeping problems/night sweats, joint pain, loss of sex drive… then you will want to take a supplement to ease the symptoms.

Below are the 3 top-rated natural supplements for symptom relief. Google online to find where you can purchase any of these, or ask at your local pharmacy or health store.

1. Menoquil – an all-natural, maximum strength menopausal relief supplement that only contains clinically proven active ingredients, it essentially works to balance hormone levels to relieve harsh menopause symptoms. It also promotes weight loss, helps increase sex drive, and is only one of a few menopause supplements being offered with a money back guarantee. Menoquil is also among the most affordable menopause supplements being sold for $39.95 per bottle.

2. Estrovera – the primary active ingredient is a special rhubarb root extract that has been shown to reduce the severity of hot flashes and other common problems during menopause. It can also reduce other menopause symptoms like anxiety, sleep disturbances, joint pain, vaginal dryness and muscle weakness. According to customer feedback, this is one of the most effective menopause supplements for hot flashes. However, it is not very effective in providing considerable relief to other menopause symptoms like low sex drive, anxiety and sleep problems. It is sold online for $30.95 plus shipping.

3. Menopace – contains 21 nutrients to support healthy hormone production. There are different variations like the Menopace plus calcium, Menopace night formulation and Menopace with added red clover isoflavones. Most customer feedback and reviews are positive saying it helps relieve menopause symptoms but there is also some feedback saying it only offers minimal relief (although it is the UK’s number one seller for menopause). It is being sold online for about $20 for a 30 day supply.

Break through all-natural formula for menopause symptoms – ELIXCELL

I discovered a press release for Elixcell this week, a break through formula that focuses on restoring and providing the right amino acids in the right ratios to deal to menopause symptoms. It claims to be the ultimate natural solution.

Amino acids – which combine in the body to make protein (the building blocks of our bodies) – are seriously lacking in the foods we eat today. And they play a vital role in functions such as digestion, anti-ageing, cellular repair and recovery, hormone regulation and many other important bodily functions and processes.

I like the sound of this! I’ve read books before that talk about the lack of amino acids, or an imbalance of amino acids in our bodies due to the food that is produced from depleted soils, or mass produced via artificial means to get to market quicker, or stored too long etc. I’ve also read about an Australian farmer who cured himself of cancer by putting the good stuff back into his soil and growing his vegetables in it, then eating them daily.

Elixcell supposedly contains a full spectrum of natural amino acids, including those the body needs for menopause relief. It makes sense that if our diet is not giving us the amino acids for the body to retain the right ratios then things can get out of whack, especially with regards to hormone balance…. then when we arrive at menopause, it affects the severity of menopause symptoms.

I’ve just signed up for my free first month’s supply!
Normally I like to try things before I share them on The Me in Menopause, but I want to tell you all about this now, since you can secure your own free first month’s supply while it’s available and see if it makes a difference for you. There’s merit in me trying and then blogging the results, for sure….. but with a free trial up for grabs, as well as the fact that our amino acid levels and balances are all going to be different AND our menopause symptoms are all different, my results might not be your results.

Hey, it’s natural, it makes good common sense, it’s going to do good things for your health in general, it’s free for 30 days…… you only need to write a review on the Facebook page once you have completed your first month.
It is $80 a bottle monthly beyond the trial though, FYI.

The company is called Life Bio Labs, and they are here in Australia. I do hope they are shipping world-wide…. I will try and find out.

For those of us who don’t fancy taking HRT, or cannot risk it (like those of us with CFS), then a natural supplement that targets hormone balance and our bodies natural ability to regulate menopause symptoms sounds like something we might like to try!
If you take up the offer too, please let me know how it goes for you… I’d love to hear from you.

My TOP 2 for Menopause

Vitamin B6
I cannot get by without taking vitamin B6. It’s fabulous for evening out the hormonal mood swings. In fact it’s a mood stabilizer that controls hormone production in the brain, and regulates hormone levels in the body. Decreased levels of B6 can lead to agitation and depression, so if you are being plagued by menopause mood swings that come on without warning and leave you feeling like the ‘old’ you has been replaced by some sort of mid-life monster from the deep, get straight onto vitamin B6 and take it every day.

Magnesium
It has so many functions and benefits but is often something we are lacking. It helps to maintain normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy immune system, keeps the heart beat steady, and helps bones remain strong. It also helps regulate blood glucose levels and aid in the production of energy and protein. I find it keeps my CFS aches and pains at bay. It’s not the greatest tasting supplement in powder form but adding it to a smoothie and masking the taste with banana or cacao works really well.
You can also buy it as a bath soak, body scrub or body spray…. and you should do because it absorbs better and faster by being applied externally. I love my magnesium bath soaks, they are a part of every week for general well-being and for making sure I’m not kept awake with aching muscles.

About me

I’ve always been interested in health and fitness…. which turned out to be a good thing when fertility treatment in my 30s took a toll on my health, leading to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and early onset menopause. More about Lynda...

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so
    much about this, like you wrote the book on it or
    something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but none-the-less, this is a magnificent blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

    Hi, it’s Lynda here. Some ladies have been asking for an update on Elixcell. After my first bottle, I purchased a second bottle, since I’d had good results with the first. My symptoms – hot flushes, mood swings mostly – had lessened. I felt a wee jolt of energy and just felt better in myself. With the second bottle I didn’t notice the same amount of impact…. but that’s the way my body does things, so don’t be put off by that! I often get a good result that doesn’t continue, like my body say’s ‘ah ha, I see what you’re doing, let’s go back to being hot and exhausted because that’s so much fun!’ Things that work well for others may not for me. So, if you are suffering with bad symptoms that are impacting your day to day, give it a go…. your body might not self-sabotage 🙂
