What Is It?
MenoVive offers a unique combination of lignans, flavonoids and adaptogenic herbal extracts to promote menopausal comfort, emotional well-being, sexual function, cognitive function, and cardiovascular health for women throughout menopause.*
Uses for MenoVive
Menopausal Comfort: HMRlignan™ contains the lignan 7-hydroxymatairesinol, a precursor to enterolactone, which has been associated with a healthy estrogen-to-progesterone ratio. As a result, lignans have demonstrated supportive roles in moderating hot flashes and menopausal comfort. Lifenol® hops extract contains 8-prenylnaringenin (8-PN), supportive for menopausal comfort, antioxidant defenses and bone health. Two randomized, doubleblind, placebo-controlled studies indicated that Lifenol hops extracts provided support for general menopausal discomfort, night sweats and hot flashes. Questionnaire results scored at six to eight weeks after supplementation suggest that hot flashes were reduced by three to four times compared to placebo. In a randomized controlled trial, resveratrol supplementation decreased menopausal symptoms from moderate/severe to mild in 78.6% of patients.*
Emotional Well-being: Ashwagandha, rhodiola and maca extracts are powerful adaptogens offering support for positive mood and relaxation. Two randomized controlled trials indicate that ashwagandha offers support for occasional stress and promotes healthy sleep, cognitive function and relaxation. In addition to promoting emotional well-being, maca also offers support for sexual function.*
Cellular Health: Lignans have demonstrated supportive roles for breast, uterine, cervical, bone and cognitive health. Importantly, dietary intake of lignans and healthy serum enterolactone levels are also positively associated with healthy cardiovascular function. Recent research suggests that rhodiola may act as a selective estrogen receptor modulator to support cognitive, cardiovascular and bone health related to menopause. Grape seed extract and resveratrol support menopausal comfort, as well as bone, cognitive and cardiovascular health. Numerous studies suggest grape seed polyphenols promote healthy blood vessel relaxation and antioxidant defenses to promote cardiovascular health.
