40+ and 55+.
Let us explain 40+ and 55+.
They’re the two heroines we provide to help support you through perimenopause, post-menopause and beyond.
The numbers relate to age and you’ll see on the labels that 40+ is recommended for perimenopause and 55+ is recommended for post-menopause.
But here’s the thing. It really doesn’t matter if you want to take 40+ for the rest of your life or if you choose to take 55+ if you’re 40.
It’s not about age. The hormone balancing trio of herbs – known as EstroG-100™ – is the same in both formulations.
It forms the basis of both of our products and is made up of three herbal root extracts: Cynanchum wilfordii (Milkweed), Phlomis umbrosa (Jerusalem sage) and Angelica gigas nakai (Angelica).
The 40+ formula contains these three herbs only and works with our body’s metabolism to naturally balance estrogen.
Estrogen can go through massive highs and lows during the transition to post-menopause which is why we recommend 40+ for perimenopause.
We’ve added additional ingredients to 55+: Enzogenol®, marine magnesium and vitamin D3.
We did this because while EstroG-100™ takes care of hormonal balance from perimenopause through to post-menopause, a whole raft of other health issues can raise their head once we get through the transition.
Estrogen is a protectant to many parts of our bodies. For example, the lack of it post-menopause means our bones become less sturdy and we become vulnerable to osteoporosis. In addition, we become more at risk of heart disease, cognitive impairment and dementia. Plus estrogen gives us ‘juice’ keeping our joints lubricated and…yep…our vagina.
Many folk around the world are deficient in magnesium and vitamin D3. And that applies to all ages.
We took all that into account when formulating 55+ and together Enzogenol®, marine magnesium and vitamin D3 support bone, heart, brain and eye health.
How long should we take 40+ or 55+ for?
They’re good friends for life. We’re women, so we often need hormone balancing! Someone in our community asked recently if they should discontinue using 55+ as they’d been in post-menopause for a while. The answer? No. The best thing would be for it to become one of their life partners from here on in to help with overall health.
