Vitabiotics Menopace Plus - 56 Tablets
For those who want EXTRA nutritional support during the menopause
Menopace® Plus is a specially formulated food supplement for women during the menopause who are looking for even greater
support. Menopace® Plus provides a unique formula in a handy dual pack combining the original multinutrient tablets with a
unique active botanical tablets.
Plus Active Botanical tablet:
New Menopace® Plus contains the additional benefits of an ‘active botanical’ tablet to be taken alongside the
multinutrient tablet. This has been specially formulated for women who are looking for extra nutritional support during
this time of change. Each tablet contains an additional 100mg of soya isoflavone extract, 250mg sage extract, 50mg green
tea extract and 50mg of flax lignans.
Active Botanical Tablet provides:
High strength soy isoflavones - Soy is one of the richest natural sources of isoflavones including diadzein, glycetine and
genistein. These phyto-nutrients are widely consumed by women during later life.
Sage - Native to the Mediterranean, sage is a member of the mint family and is know for its common use as a kitchen herb.
Flaxseed lignans - Lignans are phytonutrients which occur naturally in flax and unrefined grains. Flaxseed has a
natural lignan content that is more than 100 times higher than other plant sources. The extract used in Menopace Plus is
further enriched to provide 10-30 times more lignans than flaxseed. The principle lignan in flax is secoisolariciresinol
diglucoside, or SDG. When ingested, micro-organisms in the gut convert SDG into active mammalian lignans, which may be
helpful in maintaining health during the menopause.
Green tea - Green tea has been popular in China for thousands of years, but only recently has the Western world
discovered its remarkable health benefits. Green tea contains a number of powerful antioxidants, which can help to protect
the body from free radical damage, which is particularly important as we get older.
Why has Menopace® Plus been developed?
Menopace® Plus has been developed by a team of experts including highly qualified pharmacists and nutritionists, and is
based upon solid scientific research evidence, as a nutritional safeguard for women during and after the menopause.
The menopause marks the end of the reproductive period when the ovaries stop producing oestrogen. At this time certain
vitamins and minerals are particularly important. Each Menopace® Plus tablet contains an effective combination of
nutrients, especially for this time. These include B vitamins, chromium selenium and vitamin D3, which helps maintain
calcium levels in the body. There's special emphasis on vitamin B6, zinc and magnesium too, which are used by the body in
the production of G.L.A. (gamma linolenic acid). G.L.A. is a precursor of the body's own hormone like substances, which
help regulate changes in hormone balance.Menopace® Plus also contains a unique active botanical tablet providing sage,
green tea,flax lignans and extra soy isoflavones for those looking for even greater support.
What do you need to know before starting to use Menopace® Plus ?
Menopace® Plus does not contain any hormones, and can be taken with or without HRT.
When is Menopace® Plus recommended?
Menopace® Plus is an effective supplement specially formulated to help maintain health and vitality during and after
the menopause, and can be continued after the menopause for as long as required. There is no maximum length of time over
which Menopace® Plus can be used. Menopace® Plus is also recommended for those women who have an early menopause.
Can Menopace® Plus be used simultaneously with HRT medications?
Generally, Menopace® Plus may be used along-side medications such as HRT because it contains only moderate levels of
vitamins and minerals, and it is free of any drugs or hormones. For specific advice on taking Menopace® Plus with
medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first.
How and when should Menopace® Plus be used?
One tablet and one botanical tablet per day is recommended with or immediately after your main meal, with a full glass
of water or a cold drink. Taking the tablet with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients, and can reduce
nausea, which is sometimes experienced if multivitamins are taken on an empty stomach. Menopace® Plus should only be
taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Menopace® Plus is taken with plenty of liquid to wash the tablets down, and
not tea or coffee as this may cause the tablets to disintegrate too early.

Menopace® Plus has no known side effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended tablet intake. In case of
overdose, seek medical advice immediately.

How long does it take before experiencing any benefit in relation to health and general well being?
Results vary amongst individuals, but in most cases we would expect the beneficial effects of the vitamins and minerals
in Menopace® Plus to build over several weeks, with noticeable results in one to three months. A regular intake is
Is Menopace® Plus recommended with any other Vitabiotics product(s)?
Calcium is an essential mineral, especially during the menopause to help maintain healthy strong bones. Menopace® and
Menopace® Plus have therefore been designed so that they can be used with Vitabiotics' Osteocare® range.
Some Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) levels are above 100%, is this safe?
Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the RDA, whereas for others the safety level is
much closer to the RDA. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of
its upper safe level.
The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent b
asic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the RDA,
have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas
have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% RDA.
All Vitabiotics products has been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and
minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.
Vitabiotics avoids ‘mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe,
moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach
which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.
