The incidence of acute menopausal symptoms and long-term post-menopausal disorders (osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease) is far greater in women in North America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Western Europe compared to women in Asian, Central American and Mediterranean countries. Scientific research has found that the reason for this is due to differences in diet, and specifically in the low intake of isoflavone phytoestrogens in the Western diet.
Falling estrogen levels during menopause bring physical changes requiring lifestyle adjustments that can be debilitating for some women. With increasing age and declining estrogen production, isoflavones become increasingly important, taking over the role of the body’s estrogen. This is where the unique combination of isoflavones in Promensil's Menopause is intended to help. Promensil's Menopause assists women by the supplementation of isoflavones to help manage the symptoms of menopause naturally.
What is Menopause?
Every woman will experience menopause in her own unique way. For some women, menopause will be a gradual phase that is hardly noticed. For others it can be marked with severe symptoms that make going about your daily life close to unbearable.
Menopause literally means the last monthly period of a woman's life. However, it is confirmed when a woman has not had a menstrual period for 12 consecutive months. The gradual decrease in the ovaries production of estrogen during this time is simply the body's natural evolution from the fertile child-bearing years to a whole new stage of life.
For most women, menopause usually occurs between the ages of 45 to 55 years.
Natural midlife changes have begun when your periods become irregular. Peri-menopause refers to the time leading up to menopause when the cycle length and menstrual flow can vary significantly. You may skip a period or your flow may become heavier or lighter. A common symptom is the commencement of hot flashes, which many women describe as a sudden rush of heat that spreads over the upper part of the body and face making the skin flush and causing a sudden burst of perspiration. The onset of hot flashes can often cause embarrassment for women as they can occur at anytime without warning. Night sweats and mood swings are also common during this time and you may find that your sleep patterns change.
Estrogen levels play an important role in a woman's life. They rise at puberty with the onset of childbearing years and then increase and decrease rhythmically with your menstrual cycle. They peak during pregnancy and then decline as you reach menopause and your menstrual cycle ceases.
This decline in estrogen levels during menopause gives rise to common symptoms such as:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Mood swings and irritability
Other symptoms associated with menopause include:
- Reduced libido
- Urinary frequency
- Dry vagina
- Inability to concentrate
If you are currently going through menopause, chances are you are accustomed to more than one of these symptoms. Perhaps it's the intense hot flash when you want it the least, or it's the on again, off again tug of war with the blankets at night as you experience night sweats. The fact is thousands of women begin menopause everyday, so you are not alone.
Many women are also unaware that decreasing estrogen levels can also have a less obvious but more harmful effect on your bone and heart health.
For most post-menopausal women, the visible symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes and night sweats will ease. However, there are the invisible effects of menopause which remain. Both cholesterol, bone and heart health are major long term health issues for women after menopause.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does Promensil do?
- Reduce number of hot flashes
- Promote feeling of well being
- Promote bone health
- Promote heart health
- Promote general well-being
What's in Promensil?
Each tablet of Promensil is standardized to contain a total of 40 mg of four standardized isoflavones, genistein, daidzein, formononetin and biochanin sourced from red clover (Trifolium pratense). The biologically active ingredients are naturally occurring plant compounds, which are NOT chemically synthesized.
Promensil is free from sugar, yeast, milk derivatives, wheat and corn starch, gluten, preservatives, artificial colors and flavors.
How does Promensil work?
Isoflavones are phytoestrogens, which literally means, plant estrogens. Isoflavones are similar in chemical structure to the body's own estrogen, and when consumed in adequate amounts they are able to mimic some of the effects of estrogen to assist with maintaining health and well being. Isoflavones however are weaker than our natural estrogen, and are selective in their action in the body. Isoflavones supplement the needs of women over 45 when levels of hormones are declining.
When will I see a difference?
While this can vary with the individual, most women notice relief from symptoms within 2-5 weeks. The response may vary with the individual. If you have had absolutely no change in your well being after six weeks then you should contact your doctor or call Natrol, Inc., as they may be able to suggest ways to improve the efficacy of Promensil for you.
How to take Promensil
One Promensil tablet per day is sufficient for most women to help manage the symptoms of menopause naturally, however 2 tablets per day may be taken for severe symptoms. To help relieve daytime symptoms, take Promensil with breakfast. If night time symptoms are worse, take Promensil with the evening meal.
Antibiotics may disrupt your gut flora and hence reduce the absorption of Promensil via the gut. Eating yogurt may help to re-establish your gut flora and improve the absorption of Promensil. H2 antagonists such as Zantac and Tazac as well as proton pump inhibitors such as Somac, Zoton and Nexium may also reduce the uptake of Promensil.
If you are currently taking the Oral Contraceptive Pill or Hormone Therapy, it is recommended that you consult your healthcare professional before taking any dietary supplement.
Clinical trials have been conducted throughout the world to demonstrate the benefits of Promensil for the alleviation of menopausal symptoms including hot flashes and feeling of well being. Even more global research is underway to further expand upon their knowledge of isoflavones and health1-5. Promensil trials have been published in scientific and medical journals. All studies were conducted by specialists in universities, clinics and teaching hospitals under Good Clinical Research Practice guidelines. Natrol, Inc. is the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of Promensil products in the U.S.A.
Can I change from HRT to Promensil?
To date, all of the clinical trials with Promensil in post-menopausal women required that no HRT was taken in recent months. In practice, it is anticipated that some time will be needed to allow the body to adjust to the change from synthetic hormones to the natural isoflavone approach. The following suggestions should be discussed with your doctor before any changeover is contemplated:
- Take both HRT and Promensil (one tablet daily) together for a period of time, before gradually reducing the dose of HRT.
- Stop HRT and start Promensil twice daily (or until menopause symptoms are managed), then 1 tablet thereafter.
- Stop HRT and start Promensil one tablet daily. However, there may be significant menopause symptoms associated with an abrupt changeover until the patient adjusts.
Can I use Promensil if I'm still getting regular monthly periods?
Yes. Women can take Promensil while they are still menstruating, in the time leading up to menopause. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding however should not take Promensil without first consulting a doctor.
What is the difference between red clover products and between red clover and soy isoflavones?
Not all red clover products are the same. The leaves of the plant contain the highest amount of isoflavones. Red clover blossoms contain little or no isoflavones so products such as red clover tea will not provide any measurable isoflavone levels.
Red clover and soy are both legumes and belong to the same family of plants. The main difference is that red clover contains four active isoflavones whereas soy only has two. The extra two found in red clover are commonly found in other legumes such as chick peas and lentils.
Promensil™ offers two products to address the needs of aging women. Promensil™ is a clinically tested natural product, containing red clover isoflavones, to help relieve menopause symptoms, such as hot flashes and night sweats, and to support heart and bone health. Promensil™ Post-Menopause promotes bone and heart health for greater vitality after menopause.
