Hi, I read somewhere that Vitamin A and Vitamin E supplementation wasn't safe in the isolated form. How do you address that? Also, I heard that folic acid supplements lead to an increased risk of breast cancer. Is the folate in this product different from folic acid? Thanks!Hi, unfortunately online blogs/reports often have no scientific basis, and that's the case here. Vitamin A and E have several approved and safe forms, and Folic Acid (esp. in the active Folate form) is highly beneficial and completely safe at the levels used. If you have come across any specific reports that you'd like us to comment on, please feel free to share via Facebook Messenger or [email protected] and we'd be happy to take a look. We wouldn't dream of using any compounds or levels that we aren't completely satisfied with safety-wise.
Is it safe to take your menopause supplement while taking Aromatase inhibitors fir breast cancer?Hi, there is nothing in the Menopause formula that we would expect to interact negatively with Aromatase inhibitor medication. However, please do consult your Doctor because there may be specific nutrients they want you to avoid.
Hi.Are the menopause tablets safe to take after hysterectomy? (because of cancer). thanks.Hi, yes the formula is suitable to take after hysterectomy but please do consult your Doctor before taking any supplements as they can advise based on your individual medical history, and in respect of any medication you are taking. This isn't to give a stock answer, it is because some medical conditions and medication programs mean certain nutrients need to be considered or avoided.
I found your website because I've been looking for one simple multi that would supplement a vegan lifestyle and any nutrients I might be missing by not eating animal products. I love what I'm seeing for your multi! However, now I see you also have the menopause product - but it looks like it has fewer ingredients. Will this support someone in perimenopause AND supplement what I'm missing due to being a vegan at the same time? What is missing from this one that is in the multi and will I need to pick those nutrients up somewhere else?Hi, both formulas are very good for filling in any nutrient gaps missing from the diet (Vegan or indeed omnivorous). The Menopause formula is very similar composition-wise, but is balanced differently to support during Perimenopause and Menopause. It will help to support in what you might be missing, but just lacks some of the highly elevated levels of certain B Vitamins founds in the MultiVit.
I’m allergic to soy , your product contains soy ???Hi, the Menopause formula contains Soy Isoflavones, which offers many benefits in supporting hormone regulation. We use the isolated Isoflavones rather than a wide-ranging Soy extract, so it is worth consulting your Doctor for advice on suitability in relation to your specific Soy allergy status.
Would your product help with anxiety & nausea possible due to the menopauseHi, we have designed the formula to help with both of these symptoms. We hope you find it helps. Please do let us know how you get on.
I am assuming these are cruelty free?Hi, yes absolutely. We are completely against any form of animal testing or cruelty.
Hi I am looking for a product to help with menopausal weight gain. This is not from lack of exercise or diet (I am a vegan, eating healthily) but re hormones.
I did buy an ashwagandha supplement (400 mg) from another company and felt unsettled (mentally) a day after taking it and I notice this is one of the ingredients in your menopause supplement. I suffer from acid reflux (probably another menopausal symptom) and I am aware that ashwagandha can cause stomach upset.
Can you advise please? I really want some way of getting some oestrogen back. The ashwagandha that I was taking was combined with rhodiola.
(long time customer of vegetology)Hi, we recommend giving our Menopause Support supplement a try. It does contain some Aswagandha within a very carefully balanced combination of botanical ingredients. Often with potential botanical active ingredients the balance is the key. Our Omega-3 product (available in Capsules or Liquid) is also worth consideration.
After looking at the menopause and the multi vit I can see there is a slightly different profile. Would it be beneficial to take alternate the two, taking one, one day and the other the next. Or is it preferable to stick to the one.Hi, the Menopause formula is balanced to specifically offer targeted benefits during Perimenopause and Menopause, so we recommend this as an ideal Multivitamin formula during these stages. It is fine to alternate with MultiVit, but not necessarily beneficial.
As a peri menopausal vegan, who has a tendency towards d deficiency and is currently suffering from long covid - I am looking to change up my supplements so I can reduce my fatigue and aid
Recovery whilst also supporting myself through menopause. I currently take a
Multi vit:mineral and your omega 3 supplement. I am wondering if I should change to the menopause supplement and if I should still take omega 3 or take the vollegen. Would it be necessary/useful to take all three?Hi, a combination of our Omega-3 plus Menopause supplement (in place of your existing multivitamin) is the ideal daily regime. Vollagen is a good addition if you are seeking additional Collagen-like skin benefits
I’d like to take your new menopause multivitamin and the bone health multivitamin. On your website you suggest alternating them and taking them on different days. But the recommended dose of each is two tablets per day. Instead of alternating each day, could I take one tablet of each every day?Hi, yes that would be fine to take 1 x Bone Care and 1 x Menopause tablets each day. It's a great idea!
Can the new menopause supplement be taken along with transdermal HRT?
If so is this a more beneficial supplement for a menopausal woman than the usual multivitamin you usually do.
Thanking youHi, there is no reason our Menopause supplement can't be used along with Transdermal HRT, however please consult your Doctor before taking any supplements as they can provide advice based on your individual medical history and medication regime. The formula is specifically designed to help support during Perimenopause and Menopause, so it is more targeted than our standard MultiVit.
I'm looking for a supplement suitable for PMT - specifically changes in mood. I understand that magnesium may be helpful for this. I was just wondering if any of your supplements would be helpful- I’ve noticed the menopause supplement has magnesium but was unsure if I could take it as I’m Not peri menopausal yet.Hi, it is definitely worth a try because in addition to Magnesium and the other key Vitamins & Minerals, the formula contains Soya Isoflavones, Sage, and Ashwagandha, which should be beneficial for your needs. It is fine to take prior to Perimenopause too and can hopefully help to support you. Please let us know if it helps.
Can I take the menopause tablets with the sleep ones? I'm taking Zerochol trying to get my cholesterol down.Hi, we don't recommend taking them on the same day as you will obtain an undesirably high level of Zinc. The best option is to alternative (i.e. Menopause formula on Monday, Sleep formula on Tuesday, repeat).
Do your menopause support multivitamins contain fillers and bulking agents?
Thank youHi, no we don't use fillers or bulking agents. The full ingredient lists are available on the product pages.
Hello! If I take the menopause supplement, do I still have to take a B12 supplement or is the B12 in it sufficient? Thank you!Hi, the Menopause formula has a good maintenance dose of Vitamin B12. Unless you are at high risk of deficiency, or have been advised by your Doctor to take higher doses, we expect the Menopause supplement to be sufficient.
Does your product help with the itching that comes along with being perimenopause????Hi, we are hopeful it will help with re-balance to address the causes of itching, however it is likely you will need a topical product too in order to overcome the immediate urges to itch.
Can I take this with HRTHi, yes the formula is ideal for nutritional support while undertaking HRT.
Is the soy in the Menopause supplement nonGMO? Is it Organic?Hi, yes we use non-GMO material. It is the isolated Isoflavones used in the formula.
I am concerned about one thing, the heavy metals in ashwagandha. Is that an issue in yours?Hi, we use high quality Ashwagandha extract, so heavy metals are very closely controlled and monitored. The formula is also tested for heavy metal content as part of Quality Assurance.
As a menopausal vegan I am currently taking the multivit and omega 3 supplements. Having seen the new menopause supplement I’m now wondering if I should switch the multivit to this one?Hi, it is definitely worth consideration as the Menopause Supplement is specifically designed to support during this life stage, including targeting some of the primary associated symptomatic effects it brings. Our Menopause Supplement + Omega-3 is a great combination!
