40+ and 55+ Ingredients

herbal-powder

One of the many questions we get asked about 40+ and 55+ is the ingredients* we use.

Here they are along with a few frequently asked questions.

*Both 40+ and 55+ are based on EstroG-100™ – a scientifically tested trio of herbal roots extracts. They support the body’s response to hormonal changes such as body temperature, mood, energy levels, healthy joints and sleep.

40+Ingredients

40+ supports women in pre-, peri- and post-menopause. We suggest taking two capsules (together) every morning or evening.

EstroG-100™

EstroG-100™ combines the roots of three herbs:

  • Cynanchum wilfordii (Milkweed)
  • Phlomis umbrosa (Jerusalem sage)
  • Angelica gigas nakai (Angelica)

3 root herbs of EstroG-100

Cynanchum is a climbing vine, Phlomis are sage-like herbs and Angelica is used as a food, herbal remedy and flavour.

Phlomis umbrosa is wild harvested, while cynanchum wilfordii and angelica gigas nakai are cultivated.

These herbs have been used for hundreds of years as culinary herbs in Korea and they have a long history of use. It’s the blend of these three particular herbs that provide their support for hormonal balance.

Q. What can I expect when taking 40+/55+?

Every woman is different.  The effects can be dramatic for some and more subtle for other Meno-She’s who report feeling calmer. There can be fluctuations from month to month. The mistake some people make if this happens is to stop the 40+/55+.

40+ and 55+ will help to balance peaks and troughs, but will not eliminate them to a flat line. This is because of the way 40+ and 55+ works to support your own natural hormonal balance.

Q. Are there any adverse reactions from 40+?

There weren’t any noted during our scientific studies. However, there may be temporary itching or rash on the skin for people who are sensitive to taking new materials. 40+ helps purify the bloodstream, and urticarial (skin rash/hives) may occur due to the detoxification process. If this happens, reduce the dose to one capsule per day or every second day. If signs persist stop taking for a week and then start again.

Q. Can you take 40+ and 55+ together with other supplements?

Yes. There are no known interactions with 40+/55+.

Q. Can you take 40+/55+ together with other medicines?

If you are taking anti-thrombotic or anticoagulant medications, it’s best to consult with your doctor.

Q. Who should not take 40+/55+?

Pregnant or lactating women and those taking anti-thrombotic or anticoagulant* products should consult their health practitioner before taking EstroG-100™.
*There have been no reported interactions or side-effects when taking anti-thrombotics or anticoagulants while on MenoMe® 40+/55+ or the active ingredient EstroG-100™. However, one of the herbs, Angelica, is known to have anticoagulant and anti-thrombotic effects when taken in higher doses. Therefore in Korea, the Food and Drug Administration require an advisory statement on health functional foods containing Angelica. This advisory is not required in other countries, including New Zealand and Canada, where it’s registered as a Natural Health Product.

Marine Magnesium

Natural Magnesium sourced from seawater has been added to support normal nerve and muscle function, sleep, and heart and bone health.

Magnesium is an essential component of our DNA and plays an important part in our overall health including normal nerve and muscle function, normal heart rhythm, normal blood pressure and bone integrity. However, 60-80 per cent of adults don’t consume the recommended daily intake. In addition, absorption of magnesium from the small intestine decreases and excretion from the kidneys increases as we age. For these reasons, magnesium supplementation is increasingly being used but the quality of magnesium depends not only on its source but also its bioavailability – the ability to be absorbed and utilised by the body. 55+ uses highly absorbable marine magnesium derived naturally from the clean waters off the Irish Coast

Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3 has also been added to support normal bone health, sleep, mood and weight.

It’s our sunshine in a capsule. In addition to its well-known role in supporting bone health, it also supports healthy immune function, mood, sleep, joints and weight. For women, vitamin D levels generally start to decline during menopause.
