What is Menapol™ Plus?

 

As women age, natural fluctuations in hormone levels can cause imbalances throughout the body. Menapol™ Plus is an invigorating herbal complex that may help to ease women through the uncomfortable transitional period of the menopause. This exciting formula is designed to nourish and revive a tired body by helping the body’s systems regain a natural equilibrium.

A ground breaking formula

 

We invite you to try this expert formulation for women’s health. Each Menapol™ Plus EasyGest capsule provides:

    Red Clover 500mg – our red clover extract is a rich source of plant oestrogens that are thought to mimic the female hormone oestrogen when in the body.

      Liquorice Extract 500mg – extracts taken from the root of the liquorice plant have been used for thousands of years in Western and Eastern cultures, particularly in traditional Chinese medicine.

        Dandelion Root 500mg – although many people consider this to be a common garden herb, dandelion root is rich in beneficial nutrients, including vitamins A, B, D, iron and magnesium.

          Acai Berry 250mg – these much-loved super-berries are considered to be one of the most nutritionally complete foods in the world and boast an ever-increasing list of benefits.

            Soya Isoflavones 20mg – naturally contains the phytoestrogens daidzein and genistein; substances that are thought to act in a similar way to the female hormone oestrogen in the body.

              Chamomile Extract 80mg – the active ingredients taken from the chamomile flower include essential oils and flavonoids, which as widely believed to offer calming effects.  

                Cranberry Extract 1260mg – this highly concentrated cranberry extract provides 1250mg of fresh cranberries. CranRich is made using 100% whole fruit, including the skin, seeds, fibre and juice.

                  Siberian Ginseng 150mg – this popular herb is often referred to as an adaptogen, which may help to strengthen the body’s resistance to mental and physical stress, and boost energy.

                    Q: Can menapol plus be taken with sage. I have been taking menapol plus for two years with great results except recently a few more flushes have started again. A friend told that sage was quite good.
                    A:

                    Unfortunately as we do not stock sage we are not aware of any possible interactions between this and our menapol plus. However, as they are both used to treat the same ailments you may find it better to take one or the other and see which one works best for you.

                    Q: Can you take these whilst also taking HRT?
                    A: Unfortunately, as we are not medically trained, we are unable to advise on whether this would be safe or not. We kindly ask that you contact your local pharmacist or GP who will be able to advise you further.
                  • 6th March 2015 - menapol plus
                    Q: although i do suffer with hot sweats ,my main problem with the menopause is constipation and vaginal dryness. can menapol plus help with these symptoms.
                    A: As a common reason for vaginal dryness is declining oestrogen levels, the Red Clover contained within the Menapol Plus helps to mimic the hormone and therefore should help with this problem. Another ingredient of the Menapol Plus is dandelion root, which is naturally high in magnesium. Magnesium is often used as a supplement to help alleviate constipation and so this may also help you. Please be aware however, that we are not medically trained, therefore if you do have any specific concerns, we would advise to consult your GP.

                    Q: I am presently taking 2 tables of Menapol plus daily with my breakfast. They worked straight away on one a day then increased to 2 a day when the flushes came back. Although I very rarely get how sweats at night I find that once I have my lunch I go bright red and stay that way most of the day. Having read some of the Q&A I was thinking about trying the Black Cohosh but see that it is going to be discontinued. Is there something else you could recommend or should I split my tablets and have one twice a day instead?
                    Kindest regards,
                    Susan
                    A: Many of our customers who take the Menapol Plus do find it beneficial to split the dosage up and have one in the morning and one in the evening, so you may want to try this. Although we are discontinuing our Black Cohosh product code E189, we have recently introduced our new Black Cohosh product code B939 which is THR registered and will not be discontinued.

                    Q: Hi I am a regular customer of simply supplements, currently on Raspberry ketones and green coffee beans. Is this product ok to take along side of these.
                    A: Yes, you can take the Menapol Plus alongside the Raspberry Ketones and Green Coffee Bean extract. However, as we are not medically trained, if you do have any particular concerns we do advise that you contact your local pharmacist or GP.
                  • 6th January 2015 - Breda Ryan
                    Q: My sister who is 51 has developed oestrogen breast cancer, I was on HRT but my doctor has told me to come of it. Are Menopol safe for me to take as there is plant oestrogen Soya Isoflavones 20mg in the ingredients. I am fit and healthy only for severe night sweats and hot flusher. Thank you.
                    A: Unfortunately, as we are not medically trained, we would be unable to advise on whether this supplement is safe for you to take. We kindly ask that you contact your local pharmacist or GP who will be able to advise you further.
                  • 8th December 2014 - Annette
                    Q: I believe Black cohosh can be good for hot flushes, but as I am on Alendronic Tablets and Calcichew D3 due to mild liver disease and osteoporosis I cannot take these. Can I take Menapol Plus ?
                    A: Unfortunately, as we are not medically trained, we would be unable to advise on whether or not this product would be safe for you to take. We kindly ask that you contact your local pharmacist or GP, who would be able to assist you further.

                    Q: Hi does menapol plus help with joint pain . I am peri menopausal. And joints ache wrists fingers ankles also muscle tension thanks.
                    A: Whilst we do not specifically advertise our Menapol Plus as effective for helping with joint pain, due to some of the ingredients contained within the product, such as liquorice extract, it may benefit your joints. However, if it does not, we would recommend an alternative product for your joints, such as Glucosamine.

                    Q: Can I take sertraline with menopausal plus and hyaluronic acid (both your products)?
                    A: Unfortunately, as we are not medically trained, we are unable to advise on whether our Menapol Plus and Hyaluronic Acid would be safe to take with prescription medication. We kindly ask that you seek advice from your local pharmacist or GP prior to taking these.
                  • 11th November 2014 - Helen
                    Q: I am considering taking menapol but want to know how long will I need to take it for? Also when I finally stop taking it will my body still have to go through the hot flashes again before it stabilises?
                    A: As Menapol is a supplement that you can take daily, you can continue taking this until you feel that you no longer need to. Supplements can take up to six weeks to fully integrate into your system, and therefore you may not feel the benefits straight away. However, as everyone is different, some people can feel a difference almost immediately, whereas it may take a little more time for others. Please be aware that we are not medically trained, therefore if you do have any specific concerns, we do recommend that you consult with your GP.

                    Q: Hi I have just purchased menthol plus as referred to from a friend . I am premenopausal and only have slight hot flushes at night but muscle and joints really ache does the menthol aid this problem too thanks.
                    A: Our Menapol Plus should be able to help with your symptoms. Sometimes, muscle and joint ache are associated with low levels of oestrogen, therefore the ingredients in the Menapol Plus, such as the Soya Isoflavones, should help regulate your oestrogen levels and in turn, help with those symptoms. If you find after a while that this is not improving, please do not hesitate to contact us again and we may be able to recommend an alternative supplement for you.

                    Q: is it safe to take menapol plus along with plant stenol
                    many thanks
                    A: Yes, you can take both Menapol and Plant Sterols along side each other, as long as you are not exceeding the recommended dosage for either of them. Please be aware however, that we are not medically trained, therefore we do suggest that you seek advice from your local pharmacist or GP if you have any particular concerns.

                    Q: Hi,
                    Can you please let me know if you ever plan on producing these in a vegetarian capsule? I have been taking them for about 2 years now but being vegetarian, I have to spilt the capsule, tip the contents into my mouth and wash the powder down. The products good but i'm not sure i'm getting maximum efficacy and its not the nicest way to take a supplement. I'd be grateful if you could come back to me... Thank you
                    A: Unfortunately, this product is still contained within a gelatin capsule. However, many of our products are now formed using vegetarian capsules. Please be assured that this suggestion has been passed onto the relevant department, and will hopefully be considered for future changes in the capsule in the near future.
                  • 14th September 2014 - Val
                    Q: I am 51 had a hysterectomy at the age of 27. Over the last two years I have been suffering with low moods, sleepless nights, hot sweats. I had a blood test and was informed by me doc in was in the menopause. I went on HRT for three months but due to my sister dying at the age of 48 of Breast cancer I have came of them. But my symptoms come back right away. This week I ordered from you menapol, red clover and black cohosh and started to take them all. I noticed a big improvement in a day, but my apatite increased and I felt tired. Do I need to take all three ? Plus do I take the tabs together two in the morning or one I morning one in evening
                    A: You do not necessarily have to take all three of those supplements together. Usually, I would recommend just starting off with the Menapol on it's own, as this is a combination of quite a few ingredients. I would recommend that you take one capsule in the morning, and one in the evening. If you find that your symptoms are not improving, you can try taking one tablet of Black Cohosh a day, alongside, to see if this improves the symptoms. As the Menapol already contains Red Clover, this is not essential for you to take this on top of the Menapol as well. Please be aware however, that we are not medically trained, therefore we do suggest that you seek advice from your GP or local pharmacist if you have any particular concerns.
                  • 14th September 2014 - Sandy
                    Q: Is it okay to take valerian complex with menapol plus. A bit concerned when i read valerian can cause liver damage.
                    A: It is safe to take both of these products together, as long as you are not exceeding the recommended daily dosage. Please be aware however, that we are not medically trained, therefore if you do have any medical conditions, or are taking prescription medication, then we do advise to seek advice from a doctor or GP.
                  • 9th August 2014 - Jackie Wiesinger
                    Q: I've had several bladder infections & my GP told me that I have estrogen deficiency he prescribed prescribed cream to use twice a week but I find it very uncomfortable, would taking Menapol Plus help with the deficiency & the bladder infections. I do take your cranberry tablets every day.
                    A: The ingredients contained within our Menapol Plus capsules are taken from plant oestrogens which are designed to mimic the female hormone oestrogen. However we must inform you that we are not medically trained, so we would advise you to check your GP or Pharmacist before taking any supplements.
                  • 31st July 2014 - carol hendley
                    Q: I have just ordered menapol plus as I have suffered with hot flushes and sweats for a few years. Is it ok to take with probiotic max and omega 3 fish oils?
                    Thanks
                    A: With regards to taking different supplements together, one of the many benefits of natural herbal medicines is the safety parameters when mixing several vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Providing that you do not take more than the recommended dosage of each supplement, we are not aware of any reason why you are not able to combine the 3 supplements.

                    Q: Can I take Menapol Plus with Cymbalta 60 mg per day?
                    A: Some herbal supplements may interact with prescribed drugs. We advice that you check with a pharmacist or doctor before combining herbs with drugs.
                  • 15th June 2014 - Agnes Roberts
                    Q: Can I take Menapol plus if I have had a DVT?
                    A: If you are taking anticoagulant medicines for Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) we advice that you speak to your GP or pharmacist before combining herbs with drugs. There are certain ingredients that do not agree with certain prescribed medicines and may cause interactions. However, if you are not taking any medications then taking Menapol Plus is safe. Our Menapol Plus™ capsules are manufactured in the UK to EU standards that guarantee quality and potency. We have rigorous quality control systems in place to test each capsule at every stage, from the sourcing of the raw materials to the finished product.

                    Q: I am 51 and just started with night and morning sweats. Also for last 6 months or so having wierd aches and pains in knees, toes, hands etc. have been taking 2 x glucosamine for a few months now but i dont think its helping much, so last month started your red clover one a day alongside one glucosamine a day. Wondering whether i can change to the following: menapol plus (instead of red clover) and rosehip supplement (instead of glucosamine) ? Or some combination of the above, and how much to take?
                    Thank you
                    A: The speed at which supplements take effect can differ slightly from person to person, which means that some people can experience results quicker than others. We normally advise 4-6 weeks of daily supplementation for optimum benefits to be achieved, however, this period can be shorter. You can switch supplements if you feel that you do not see any benefits after taking them for some time. Menapol plus is a combination of different essential ingredients tailored to women's needs. You may take 1 capsule after breakfast and another after dinner. As for your knee and hand, we recommend taking our GluComplex Gold which is a combination of Glucosamine, Chondroitin & MSM with added GreenShell™ mussel & Mangosteen to help reduce joint pain. Take two tablets, one after breakfast and another after dinner.

                    Q: Do the tablets have the THR stamp on them I am very weary about taking supplements
                    A: Our Menapol does not have a THR stamp. However, at Simply Supplements our Menapol Plus™ capsules are manufactured in the UK to EU standards that guarantee quality and potency. We have rigorous quality control systems in place to test each capsule at every stage, from the sourcing of the raw materials to the finished product.

                    Q: Can any of the menapol plus ingredients cause digestive problems, I've been taking them for a couple of months and I've started having digestive problems.
                    A: Many women begin to experience problems with their digestive system during the peri-menopause and the menopause. Digestive problems during the menopause include excess wind or constipation, weight gain and abdominal pain. That said, we are also aware that everyone's bodies reacts differently with various supplements. Therefore our advice would be to try and switch to a different herbal supplement like soya isoflavones or red clover and see the difference. However, if digestive problems persist, check with a pharmacist or GP to find an effective solution for your symptoms.

                    Q: I have been taking starflower oil 1000 mg 1 capsule a day for the last 6 months and my hot flushes stopped immediately. They have started to come back again. Is it possible to take menapol tablets with starflower oil ?
                    A: Yes, Menapol Plus and Starflower Oil may be taken together as long as you do not exceed the recommended daily dose per supplement. Please also know that you must consult a GP or pharmacist before combing herbs with drugs as some ingredients may interact with each other.

                    Q: I have just started HRT - Elleste duet 1mg but before deciding to change after a rather difficult year I found Menapol Plus and had been taking them for approx. 2 weeks and personally found them very good. Would be safe to continuing taking these a long side this type of HRT?
                    A: Most women consider the supplements safer than HRT as HRT results in a lot of cumbersome outcomes. Our Menapol Plus contains an impressive combination of potent and safe ingredients known to help the body’s systems regain a natural equilibrium and maintain a balanced state of mind and mood. We are pleased to know that the supplement is working for you as it is for majority of our female customers approaching and during the menopause. Unfortunately, we cannot confirm whether menapol plus is compatible or safe taken with HRT. We suggest to consult your GP regarding this.

                    Q: Can I take menopol plus and soya isoflones together?
                    A: Yes, you can take both products together but please know that Menapol Plus already contains 20mg of Soya Isoflavones. Therefore, it would be best if you take 1-2 capsules of Soya Isoflavones instead of 3 when taking it with our Menapol Plus.

                    Q: Hi there. I am 48 yrs old with a 10 yr old son & recently had a total abdominal hysterectomy due to an ovarian mass. I am having lots hot flushes & night sweats plus other symtoms of the menopause... I have just ordered menapol plus, flaxseed oil capsules1000mg, vitamin E capsules 400iu & soya Isoplavones,kudzu root,red clover & evening primrose capsules.... My question is am I safe to take all of these & how long will it take to feel any benefits from them. I will look forward to hearing from you.x
                    A: First of all, please know that some herbal supplements may interact with prescribed drugs. So if you are taking prescribed medication always check with a pharmacist or doctor before combining herbs and drugs. You do not have to take different supplements containing the same ingredients as you may exceed the recommended daily allowance on some of them. We suggest combining 1 herbal product with 1 fat or water soluble supplement. Try Menapol with Evening Primrose Oil or Vitamin E or Red Clover with Vitamin E or Flaxseed Oil.

                    Q: The first 6 months of taking Menapol Plus x2 daily they worked perfectly. Now the hot flushes and night sweats have returned with a vengeance! I bought Red Clover but understand from your Q&A's that I shouldn't take it as a separate supplement with Menapol Plus. What is the maximum dosage I can take of Menapol Plus and is it safe to take Black Cohosh or Soya Isoflavones with it? Which one will best help to reduce the hot flushes and night sweats?
                    A:

                    The best thing to do is find out which supplement suits you best. If you find that Menapol Plus is no longer as effective as when you started taking it, we suggest that you switch to another supplement. Taking either Black Cohosh or Red Clover should help with hot flushes or night sweats. We suggest taking one or the other to begin with. You can take up to 4 tablets daily of Black Cohosh and 1 of the Red Clover. In addition, we recommend deep breathing, or relaxation breathing or paced respiration, involve breathing in deeply and exhaling at an even pace. Do this for several minutes while in a comfortable position.

                    Q: I find if i take a menapol plus at night i find it hard to drop of to sleep does anyone else find this take 1menapol plusi i
                    A: Everyone’s body responds differently to supplement products and ingredients which is why some tend to experience side effects while others do not. If you still can’t decide which supplement is more your speed, you can always try one product for the first month the other for the next. We recommend trying some of our products under the same range as Menapol Plus like Red Clover or Soya Isoflavones. Just remember that the way that it fits into your regime is ultimately what matters.

                    Q: Im taking 2 x 1 tablet each day, but nigh sweats are still a problem what is the best time to take the second tablet at the moment im taking it around 7pm. My sweats are a lot better and were brilliant when I first started taking the tablets but now they seem to be waking me up again.
                    A: Where you have to take two or more capsules of the same preparation, it is a good idea to spread these out over the day in order to maximize absorption and cause less fluctuation in blood levels. We suggest to take one after your breakfast meal and one after your evening meal. You may also want to consider trying other products from the same range which offers the same benefits such as Red Clover or Soya Isoflavones.

                    Q: I am 59 and had sudden menopause about 10 years ago because of surgery on my ovaries. I still get some menopause symptoms, such as hot flushes and trouble getting off to sleep. I take 5-HTP supplements before bed and find these help a little with sleep - I wonder if Menapol can be taken as well as 5 HTP? Thanks.
                    A: We have not heard any side affects associated to taking both supplements together and should be safe as long as you do not exceed the recommended daily intake of each supplement. Please be aware however that 5 HTP should not be taken at the same time as prescription anti-depressant drugs, except under medical advice or supervision.

                    Q: Have just ordered menapol plus is it ok to take it along with your red clover 1000mg supplements.
                    A: We would recommend that you take either Menapol Plus or Red Clover 1000mg tablets. This is because both these supplements provide high levels of the same ingredient - Red Clover. Taking both together on a daily basis may cause you to exceed the recommended dosage.

                    Q: Just started taking menapol plus been taking two tablets for the last five days and I have really tingly lips is this a side effect of the tablets been trying to find information on side effects and cant. 
                    A: According to our information, tingling in the mouth/lips is one of the few menopause symptoms women may not recognize. However, in order to find out if it is the tablet that is causing this, we suggest to stop taking Menapol Plus for a few days and consult with your GP.

                    Q: Received my order today & keen to get started! Can't wait to banish the flushes & get a good night's sleep!! Do you recommend that they are taken with a meal. 
                    A: We recommend to take this supplement immediately after food. Do not take them with coffee or tea, as these may interfere with absorption.

                    Q: I have just turned 40 and I am being told I am in the early stages of menopause. Can you tell me how Menapol may effect my weight as I have just recently lost 5.5 stone. Will this product cause a bleed and will it help with the hot flushes? I have so many questions and feel my GP isn't supporting me with answers.
                    A: We have not had any reports of customers experiencing weight gain whilst taking the Menapol Plus. However, supplements can have different effects on different people, so we could not guarantee this. Many customers find that Menapol Plus can help to reduce common symptoms caused by, and relating to, the menopause including hot flushes.

                    Q: I have been on hrt for approx 20 years with no problems. Came off for a while it couldn't stand the hot sweats. My doctor said that I could take them in alternate days. I still got hot flushes and feel I need to come off after being on them for so long. Can I go on Menapol straight away when I've topped hrt. I was recommended by a nurse that I spoke to today. Thanks
                    A: Although HRT is an accepted medical treatment to reduce menopause symptoms, many women are unwilling, or unable, to take it. Taking natural herbal supplement is a safe alternative to HRT. You should be able to start taking menopause supplements once you have come off HRT.
                  • 17th July 2013 - Penstar
                    Q: Does Menapol plus provide any natural progesterone? I have asked my GP for advice but she is not trained in natural alternatives. She did advise that HRT is given with progesterone to protect the womb, (not sure from what). I am very interested in trying menthol plus but do not want to cause any problems with my womb by doing so. I am also taking Glucosamine Sulphate 2KCI, 1000mg, 2 tablets daily. Can they be taken alongside Menapol plus? Again my GP couldn't answer this for me.
                    A: Menapol Plus contains natural estrogen found in key ingredients within this complex supplement. We would not recommend this product while on HRT however, we recommend this as an alternative should HRT not work for you. We have rigorous quality control systems in place to test all products at every stage, from the sourcing of raw materials to the finished products. You can therefore be assured of its potency. Please also know that everyone reacts differently to certain supplements. What may be beneficial for some people may not necessarily be to others. Glucosamine & Menapol can both be taken together.

                    Q: I've been using HRT patches for some years and plan to swop to Menapol plus. I've had no problems with HRT just feel I'd like come off it now! Can you offer any suggestions or hints for the transition from one to another?
                    A:

                    We currently supply several products that are recommended to help women through this difficult time. Menapol Plus is one of our most popular supplements in this range as it is a comprehensive mixture of lots of different ingredients that are found to help with symptoms of the menopause. Providing that you do not take more than the RDA, there should be no problems. If you are taking any other prescription medication alongside this, we do recommend that you consult your GP prior to taking.

                    Q: I am 46 years of age with a 9 year old son. I have a history of fertility issues including ivf from 15 years ago. I was diagnosed with immature egg release then went on to have a child 9 years ago naturally. My symptoms of menopause started about 3 years ago with night sweats and mood swings and my periods all over either heavy or two days and irregular. I feel under the weather durring this time and not all together with it and suffer terrible lethargy and bouts of tiredness. I recieved menapol a week ago and take as perscribed 2 tablets per day.My question is will it take long for the effects to begin and is their anything else to help my symptoms.
                    A:

                    As supplements are not prescription medicines, they will work in different ways for different people and this includes the length of time it will take for them to work. Generally, supplements can take anything up to 6 weeks to take effect.

                    Q: I have been taking Menopol Plus for the last 6 months. At first i found such an improvement with the hot flushes and night sweats, i even managed to sleep through the night. Now, for the last 2 weeks i find that the night sweats and the hot flushes through the day have returned. Can you recommend anything else i can take with the Menopol Plus please? Could i take the Black Cohosh until it's discontinued or is there something else maybe?
                    A:

                    We would certainly recommend our Black Cohosh 200mg tablets to you. Please click HERE to view.

                    Q: At what age can one start taking these please? and can they be opened and take just the inside powder please since i dont swollow capsules?
                    A:

                    As Menapol Plus contains natural oestrogens, we would not recommend taking this supplements whilst still of child-bearing age, unless advised to do so by a doctor. Many women start to take this product at the first signs of the menopause.

                    As our Menapol Plus is in Easygest capsule form, the capsules can be pulled apart so that you can sprinkle the powder onto food or into water if preferred.

                    A:

                    Providing that you do not exceed the recommended daily dosage for these three products, they are safe to take in combination, as they do not contain any of the same ingredients and there are no known interactions. If you do have any medical concerns, we would advise that you consult with your GP.

                    A:

                    Supplements such as vitamin E and omega 3 have powerful anti-inflammatory properties to aid in healing ovarian cyst. Always tell your doctor what supplements you are taking especially when under prescribed medications.

                    Q: I have been taking menopausal supplement and black cohosh. Menopol plus sounds good but it doesnt contain black cohosh or dong quai. Will it stop the hot flushes, tiredness, and moods swings if it does not contain the black cohosh and dong quai?
                    A:

                    As supplements work in different ways for different people, you may find that this product is helpful to you despite the fact that it does not contain the Black Cohosh or Dong Quai. This product has been reformulated to no longer contain Black Cohosh as, due to new EU legislation, we will soon no longer be able to supply Black Cohosh. This is why it is now available as a single supplement, and will be discontinued in the near future.

                    We would recommend both of these products for you, as they have both been shown to aid with the symptoms that you have advised of. Menapol Plus is a unique formulation of ingredients that help to relieve the symptoms of the menopause, and does contain Soya Isoflavones, so you may perhaps find this product more beneficial However, as supplements are not prescription medicines, they will work in different ways for different people.

                    Q: I am 65 years old and think I must be through the menopause by now. However, in the past few weeks I have been tied, anxious, on edge, weepy and short tempered. I am convinced I need some sort of supplement. I have read the reviews and reel happy about taking Menapol, but is is suitable for someone who has gone through the menopause. 
                    A:

                    We recommend Menapol Plus to aid with all symptoms caused by and related to the menopause, so we would still recommend this product for you.

                    Q: Can you tell me whether this is the best product you have for combined TERRIBLE mood swings, anxiety and panic attacks (all due to the menopause). Or is there something else you would recommend for the dealing with the more "mental" side of menopause?
                    A:

                    We do recommend Menapol Plus for the symptoms that you have advised of, and this product has been specifically designed by our nutritionists to combine the most essential nutrients into one unique formulation.

                    Q: Can I carry on using Sepia when I start Manapol Plus? I currently take 240C Sepia a day.
                    A:

                    As Sepia is not a product that we supply, we would be unable to comment on whether you would be safe to take this alongside our Menapol Plus. If you do have any concerns we would advise that you consult your GP.

                    Q: i have been having really bad hot flushes through the night and horrendous mood swings for the past 3 years, they are lasting about 2/3 months then stop for about 6 months then start again i havnt had a period for 7 months now i am waiting for a delivery of menopol plus and was wondering if i could start taking it straight away even though my menopausal symptoms have stopped for the time being
                    A:

                    We recommend this product for the treatment of symptoms caused by the menopause, and as supplements can take anything up to 6 weeks to take effect we see no reason why you shouldn’t begin taking them straight away. If you do have any concerns, we would advise that you consult your GP.

                    A:

                    Providing that you do not exceed the RDA of either product, there should be no harm in taking them alongside one another. If you do have any concerns, we would advise that you consult your GP.

                    Q: I've just discovered your website and want to know if Menapol helps hairloss. I am in my early fifties and believe that I am going through the menopause but with very little symptoms - fortunately. However, the one thing that is affected is my hair, which is falling out from the roots at a rate that is becoming too stressful to ignore. I wondered if Menapol will help to balance the oestrogen levels in my body, thereby reducing the hair loss.
                    A:

                    Although Menapol Plus is not a product that we specifically advise for the treatment of hair loss, you may find it helpful. Supplements work in different ways for different people, therefore all supplements will have different benefits for each person. A product that we would suggest specifically for this is Hair Care Plus, click HERE for more info.

                    Q: I am looking for a product that will relieve vaginal atrophy and dryness due to menopause. Do any of your products promise that?
                    A:

                    Our Menapol Plus has been formulated to aid menopausal symptoms, however supplements can work in different ways for different people. Therefore you may find this to be beneficial. As we are not medically trained, we would advise that you consult with your GP in regards to this.

                    Q: I am aged 51 and think I have started the menopause. My main sympton at the moment is suffering from hot flushes, night sweats and sleepless nights. I definitely want to try Menapol Plus and wondered if I should just try it on its own or maybe also take Black Cohosh. Please could you advise.

                    A:

                     Our advice will be to take one or the other in order for you to find out which one works for you. The Menapol Plus contains multiple key ingredients whereas the Black Cohosh only has one. Having said that, both products are equally good and used by the majority of our customers undergoing menopause.

                    Q: Is it ok to take Menapol Plus whilst I am taking St Johns Wort tincture?
                    A:

                    Unfortunately, as we are not medically trained, we could only advise that you consult your GP in regards to this.

                    Q: I have the distinct feeling I am perimenopausal ... the irregular periods, spotty face, ratty moods kinda give it away. Oh, and the fact that i'm 47 years old ! Is this product suitable for me even although I am not having flushes or anything like that ? My Mum didn't so i'm hoping I get that from her !
                    A:

                    This product has shown to be beneficial for relieving symptoms related to the menopause; therefore we would advise that you firstly consult your GP to verify whether you are pre-menopausal, as it may be that they could recommend a specific supplement or prescription medication for yourself. If they do advise that this is the case, then we would certainly recommend this product.

                    Q: Why has the formula changed? The last menapol plus I bought from you contained Valerian, Dong Quai, Wild yam, Agnus Castus and Black cohosh as well as the red clover. This formula doesn't contain any of these?
                    A:

                    The reason for the change is that certain ingredients can now no longer be sold under the guidelines of the new EU directive. Unfortunately the ingredients that you have mentioned are some of the ones affected. We do, however, still supply Red Clover 42mg in the Menapol Plus.

                    Q: I have been taking menapol plus for just over a week and it has really helped with the hot flushes thank god but i have had period like dull stomach pain for the past few days could this be a side effect?
                    A:

                    Soy products have been known to cause side effects amoung people who are allergic. One of these side effects is stomach complaints, therefore we would advise that you consult your GP to ensure that you are not allergic to soy products as Menapol Plus contains 20mg of Soya Isoflavones.

                    Q: Has there been any reports of Menopol Plus making hay fever worse. I was wondering if the red clover can effect hay fever.
                    A:

                    We are not aware of this supplement making hayfever worse, however, if you are finding that this is causing your hayfever to worsen then we would advise that you stop taking it and consult your GP.

                    Q: I have just started taking the mini pill so is it ok to take Menapol as well?
                    A:

                    Unfortunately, as we are not medically trained, if you are taking prescription medication alongside a supplement we could only advise that you consult your GP with regards to any side effects that may occur.

                    Q: when is the best time of day to take menapol
                    A:

                     There is not necessarily a better time of the day to take Menapol, however we would advise that you try to take it at the same time everyday, i.e with breakfast or an evening meal. If you have any concerns we would always advise that you consult your GP.

                  • 14th April 2011 - SD
                    Q: I have just purchased these tablets but not sure how many I should take. Is it best to start taking two a day and then reduce to one a day or just take one a day. I have read many reviews but no one mentions how many they take a day. If I took two a day is it best to take both tablets at the same time, also is there a specific time of the day these should be taken.
                    A:

                     The RDA is 1-2 tablets daily, therefore as long as you are not exceeding this dosage it is really personal preferance whether you take 1 a day or 2 a day. We would advise that you try to take the tablet at roughly the same time every day, however this can be morning or evening depending on which is best for you. If you have any further concerns, we would advise that you consult you GP.

                    Q: I am looking for a supplement that I can safely use for my horse. She is what one would call a Moody Mare. I have successfully given glucosamine to a horse in the past - so many gramms per kg etc.
                    I am hoping that something like this would help my mare's moodswings each month. If so, what ratio - g/kg should I try?
                    many thanks
                    A:

                     We do not supply a specific supplement for horse's, however some studies have shown that equine joint supplements that contain glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM have been found to be very effective in treating joint pain. With regards to the mood swings, I am afraid that we could only advise that you consult your vet, unless of course they are caused by pain in her joints and therefore a glucosamine supplement may benefit her. Again, however, we would always suggest that you consult your vet beforehand.

                    Q: Can I take this along with 5htp tablets?
                    A:

                     As long as you don't exceed the dosage of either product, then there should be no problem in taking these together. If you are concerned, we would always advise that you consult your GP beforehand.

                    Q: Tablets arrived today but not sure to start with 1 or 2 daily - flushes worse in evening and early morning. Took 1 this morning - how long do I wait to see an improvement (hopefully)
                    A:

                     The recommendation is 1 to 2 tablets daily, therefore is it completely personal choice. We would advise that you allow 3-6 weeks for the supplement to get into your system before you notice a difference.
