55+ Ingredients

55+ comprises: EstroG-100™ 257mg, Enzogenol® 50mg, Marine magnesium 125mg (equivalent 40mg magnesium), Vitamin D3 300IU.

Pure EstroG-100™ – a patented formulation combining the roots of three herbs: Cynanchum wilfordii (Milkweed), Phlomis umbrosa (Jerusalem sage) and Angelica gigas nakai (Angelica).

Cynanchum is a climbing vine, Phlomis are sage-like herbs and Angelica is used as a food, herbal remedy and flavour. These herbs have been used for hundreds of years as culinary herbs in Korea and have a long history of use.

Phlomis umbrosa is wild harvested, while Cynanchum wilfordii and Angelica gigas nakai are cultivated.

Enzogenol®

Enzogenol® is a whole plant extract derived from the bark of New Zealand radiata pine trees using a water-only extraction process. It contains more than 80% proanthocyanidins by weight making it a potent antioxidant. Antioxidants play an important role in reducing oxidative stress and damage associated with the ageing process. In scientific research, Enzogenol® has been shown to support cardiovascular and eye health as well as healthy brain function in relation to mental clarity and focus.

Marine Magnesium

Magnesium is an essential component of our DNA and plays an important part in our overall health including normal nerve and muscle function, heart rhythm, blood pressure and bone integrity. However, 60-80% of adults don’t consume the recommended daily intake of magnesium in their diets. 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 used. 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 a highly absorbable marine magnesium derived naturally from the clean waters of Iceland.

Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3 is sunshine in a capsule. In addition to its well-known role in supporting bone health, it supports healthy immune function, mood, sleep, joints and weight. For women, vitamin D levels generally start to decline during the midlife transition.

55+ FAQ

What is EstroG-100™ (the hormone balancing ingredient in 55+)?

EstroG-100™ is a proprietary standardised herbal ingredient that supports hormonal balance and supports women in pre-, peri-, and post-menopause.

How was EstroG-100™ discovered?

Dr Jae Kim, the inventor, is a Korean medical doctor who studied these plants for many years. Dr. Kim developed some screening tests to find out which plant extracts had the best efficacy and least side effects. He screened 71 different extracts with his E-screen assay before finding the best combination. The EstroG-100™ combination was the best at supporting estrogenic activity and estrogen specific alkaline phosphatase (ALP) induction.

Does EstroG-100™ contain estrogen?

No, EstroG-100™ does not contain any estrogenic properties or well-known phytoestrogens such as coumestans, isoflavones, genistein, daidzein, biochanin A and formononectin. Unlike all the other herbal ingredients for menopause, EstroG-100™ does not bind to estrogen receptors alpha and beta and it does not proliferate MCF-7 cells. In addition, in contrast to other phytoestrogen products, EstroG-100™ was confirmed not to affect FSH/E2, uterus weight, BMI and body weight.

If EstroG-100™ contains no phytoestrogens, then how does it work? What is its mode of action (MOA)?

The available scientific evidence suggests the mechanism of action for EstroG-100™ supporting menopausal balance and bone metabolism is due to its support for a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM). Certain plant compounds in EstroG-100™ support balanced estrogen metabolism. This works in harmony with your own body’s metabolic and biochemical pathways.

Can I expect better or faster results with a higher dose?

The published scientific studies all used the same dose of EstroG-100™. However, we have anecdotal evidence from many years of usage that showed some women had benefitted by taking EstroG-100™ more frequently.

Why is EstroG-100™ called a proprietary herbal ingredient?

EstroG-100™ is patented in the USA, Canada, Japan, China, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, and is soon to be patented in EU, Brazil, Mexico and other Asian countries. This means it is proprietary, and you can only get EstroG-100™ from the licensee who is Meno-Me® Ltd in New Zealand.

Who should not take 55+?

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

How is it best to take 55+?

Take two capsules daily. It is important to take 55+ daily to get the best results.

How long does it take?

This varies with individuals (thankfully we are all different!) – but based on our scientific research, you can expect to notice support within six weeks. However, when we look at our experience, it can take from one to four weeks. The fastest case we know of was within two days! Optimum results are usually reached within 12 weeks.

What can I expect when taking 55+?

Every woman is different. The effects can be dramatic for some and more subtle for others, with reports of an overall sense of calmness occurring. We recommend that you keep taking 55+ throughout your post-menopause even if the effects fluctuate at times. This will enhance a more balanced hormonal experience during your menopausal journey compared to not taking 55+.

How long should I take 55+ for?

It is advisable to keep taking 55+ throughout post-menopause.

Why do I experience fluctuations, even when I am taking 55+?

Everything in nature has rhythms and cycles – peaks and troughs. There is no stronger example of the ebbs and flows in our body chemistry than a woman’s monthly cycle. Some women will experience much higher peaks and lower troughs than others, and will therefore have more severe experiences than others.

55+ supports balance for these highs and lows, but will not eliminate them to a flat line. This is because of the way 55+ works; to help balance your own natural hormone levels. 55+ does not contain estrogens but works to support your own naturally produced hormones. As such it will smooth but not completely flatten the cyclic rhythm. This is the most natural way to manage your menopause and results in outstanding quality of life scores when measured in our scientific research.

Are there any possible adverse reactions from 55+?

There were no noted adverse reactions during the scientific studies. However, there may be a temporary itching or rash on the skin for people who are sensitive to taking new materials. 55+ helps purify the bloodstream, and urticarial (skin rash/hives) may very rarely occur due to the detoxification process. Should this happen reduce the dose to one capsule per day, or every second day. If symptoms persist stop taking for a week and then resume.

Is 55+ suitable for women with endometriosis?

55+ does not have estrogen activity and has not been specifically tested for safety or efficacy for endometriosis. However, in the menopause scientific studies, endometriosis was not a requirement for the exclusion of participants in the trials. Only patients with cervical cancer, endometrial cancer, breast cancer, and sex hormone-related cancers were excluded.

Is 55+  suitable for women who have underactive thyroid?

EstroG-100™ (the hormone balancing ingredient in 55+) has not been shown to affect thyroid function, but no studies have been conducted to prove safety for women with an underactive thyroid. However, in scientific studies for menopause, subjects with thyroid disease participated where their medical practitioner judged them suitable.

Can you take 55+  together with other supplements?

Yes. There are no known interactions with 55+.

Can you take 55+ together with other medicines?

If you are taking anti-thrombotic or anticoagulant medications consult with your doctor before taking 55+.

Can men take 55+?

There is no harm in men taking 55+ but there is no evidence it will assist them in any way.

How should I store 55+?

Keep in a cool dry place, away from direct sunlight and moisture.

What is the shelf life for 55+?

55+  is shelf-stable for three years (36 months).

Where can I purchase 55+?

55+ is sold on our website www.meno-me.co.nz, www.healthpost.co.nz, www.pachealth.co.nz and selected independent hair and beauty salons.

LotsaLocks™ Information

Hair loss can occur at any age but is most common in menopause. While women rarely become bald, about two-thirds of midlife women note thinning and some degree of baldness.

This heartbreaking side effect of menopause is not talked about by almost half of women who experience it – a bit like menopause itself – and can lead to psychological distress.

Not surprisingly, the cause of this is hormonal. Estrogen and progesterone keep the hair in the growing phase making it grow faster and stay on the head longer. When levels of these hormones decline during menopause, hair growth slows, and hair loss becomes more pronounced. At the same time, the body produces more androgens which cause the hair follicles to shrink and increase hair loss.

LotsaLocks™ by MenoMe® contains keraGEN-IV®, a keratin protein that has been shown in scientific studies to support strong hair follicle anchoring thus supporting hair maintenance and density. It is rich in cysteine, which is essential for the production of glutathione, the master antioxidant that supports shiny, healthy-looking hair.

keraGEN-IV® is a pure keratin protein in a digestible and functional form that is ethically sourced from the wool of sheep raised in New Zealand.

LotsaLocks™ also contains Biotin, one of the B complex vitamins that is well known for supporting healthy hair.

Post-menopause


This is the time when menstruation is well and truly over, the ovaries have stopped producing high levels of sex hormones and for many ladies, perimenopause symptoms subside.

Estrogen has protective qualities and the diminished levels mean organs such as your brain, heart and bones become more vulnerable. It’s also a key lubricant so your lips may become drier, your joints less supple and your vagina might be drier. In addition, your thyroid, digestion, insulin, cortisol and weight may alter.

At this juncture, a woman might experience an increase in the signs of reduced estrogen but she should have a decrease of perimenopause symptoms. That said, some women will experience symptoms like hot flushes for years or even the rest of their lives.

Perimenopause

Peri = ‘near’

Most females begin to experience the symptoms of perimenopause in their mid-forties. Your progesterone levels decline from your mid-30s but it’s generally from around 40 that the rest of your sex hormones begin to follow suit. 

Perimenopause is a different experience for every woman and some women may barely notice it. The first indicators are usually changes to the monthly cycle. This means that for some ladies, this can be accompanied by things like sore breasts, mood swings, weight gain around the belly, and fatigue as time goes on.

For those with symptoms it can be a challenging time physically, mentally and emotionally.

Importantly, perimenopause lasts – on average – four to 10 years. The transition is usually a gradual process and many women enter perimenopause without realising.
