|Looking after your bone health is a priority during the menopause,Vitabiotics Menopace Calcium - 60 Tablets is a comprehensive formulation of 24 nutrients including 700mg of calcium.
The menopause is a natural stage of life that every woman goes through as oestrogen levels decline. It usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age, but this can vary considerably.
Thousands of women worldwide have discovered that Menopace, the UK's No.1 selling supplement for this stage of life, provides effective nutritional support. Menopace is the most trusted menopause supplement brand*.
Menopace Calcium is specially formulated to provide advanced support for women, to be taken during and after the menopause, combining the original Menopace formula with added calcium which is needed to help maintain normal bones. The unique formula of 24 nutrients includes vitamin B6 which contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity, as well as 100mg Soya Isoflavones.
As we get older, particularly around the time of the menopause, our bone density can decrease as a result of the natural reduction in our oestrogen levels. Calcium helps to reduce the loss of bone mineral in post-menopausal women.** Low bone mineral density is a risk factor for osteoporotic bone fractures‡, so it is especially important to make sure we safeguard our intake of calcium during this time.
Menopace Calcium provides 700mg calcium, plus magnesium, zinc and vitamin D, which all contribute to the maintenance of normal bones. Based on the latest research, Menopace Calcium provides 'the sunshine vitamin', vitamin D which plays a role in many areas of health, including the normal absorption and utilisation of calcium found in diet as well as contributing to the normal function of the immune system.
During the menopause, levels of specific hormones can change. Menopace Calcium includes vitamin B6 to contribute to the regulation of hormonal activity.
Overall Vitality & Wellbeing
Menopace Calcium provides vitamins B1, B6 and B12 which contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system, plus pantothenic acid, iron and copper to contribute to normal energy release.
Skin and Hair
Oestrogen has a positive effect on the production of collagen, a substance that forms part of the bone matrix and skin structure. During the menopause, oestrogen production can significantly decline. Menopace Calcium includes vitamin C which contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of the skin, cartilage, bones and blood vessels. Zinc contributes to normal hair health.
Lower oestrogen levels may influence heart and cardiovascular health in older women. Menopace Calcium includes thiamin (vitamin B1) which contributes to the normal function of the heart whilst folate, vitamins B12 and B6 contribute to normal homocysteine metabolism. Maintaining healthy lower levels of the blood amino acid homocysteine is independently linked with heart health.
