Having hit ‘the change’ last summer, I started getting really bad hot flushes, amongst other symptoms, and after a few months I felt I needed some help. Thankfully being a beauty/wellness blogger, I was offered the chance to sample some Promensil natural menopausal supplements. So, rather than turn to HRT as I prefer natural products, I decided to give them a whirl to see if I could gain some relief.
Promensil Menopause Double Strength Supplements
Containing 4 varieties of Isoflavones, these high strength natural supplements are recommended as a starter dose, for taking during the early stages of menopause, ideal for me. These contain 80mg of the Isoflavones, and I’ve been taking one a day (recommended dose), for around 7 weeks now. Read my results further on in the post.
As you’ll see from the below image, these are suitable for vegans, vegetarians, and allergy sufferers.
There are 3 Promensil varieties :
Promensil Double Strength – Starter (each tablet contains 80mg of Red Clover Isoflavones – available in packs of 30 or 90 tablets) price – from £25.55
Promensil Original – Maintenance (each tablet contains 40mg of Red Clover Isoflavones – available in packs of 30 or 90 tablets) price from £20.40
Promensil Post Menopause – Aftercare (each tablet contains 40mg of Red Clover Isoflavones, Calcium & Vitamin D – available in 30 tablets) price from £21.99
These contain Red Clover extract, which is said to be one of the richest concentrations of Isoflavones, known as phytoestrogens, water-soluble chemicals that act like estrogens. Red clover also provide a good source of nutrients including magnesium, calcium, chromium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, thiamine, and vitamin C.
The Isoflavones (or phyto-oestrogens), in Red Clover, are similar to the female hormone oestrogen. Studies performed by the brand, have shown that they can be helpful in reducing hormonal hot flushes, and health in menopausal women. Plus, they may even help bone health and the risk of heart attacks.
Statement from Promensil : ” Promensil is the only menopause supplement backed by over 15 years of scientific research with proven effectiveness and safety on helping menopausal women. Promensil extracts isoflavones from whole red clover plants harvested just before they blossom. The standardisation process used in the manufacture of Promensil ensures that each tablet in every pack supplies 40mg of isoflavones”.
My hot flushes started almost 2 years ago, but were really spasmodic. Then, last summer my periods completely stopped, and I had frequent day and night flushes. Being the summer, it was pretty awful during the heat and I found them pretty full-on. They continued that way through to the Autumn with soaking clothes, flushed skin and a sometimes, anxious feelings of being trapped during the bad tropical moments. So, I started taking the Promensil in November, even though I was a little sceptical.
Since then, I’ve found a real change in my flushes. Obviously the weather is colder, but I am wandering if these have really helped. I don’t get night sweats anymore, which were terrible. I also have hardly any flushes during the day, and any I do are extremely light. My hormonal mood fluctuations seem to have improved a little, although I can’t say if this is due to the supplements. My forgetfulness and fatigue issues are unchanged, but as I suffer with Fibromyalgia, these supplements aren’t going to help my pain or ‘fibro fog’.
I’m impressed with the results so far, as constant hot flushes really are horrendous. I’m sure they’re easier for many during colder spells, but even when I get little stressed or anxious, they’re now greatly reduced. It’s cheaper for me too, as I’m not getting through so much facial spring water sprays to cool the skin. I’d certainly recommend trying a course and sticking with these, for at least a couple of months to see any results.
I also try to include plenty of Omega-rich fatty acids in my diet, by eating nuts, mackerel and linseeds. Plus antioxidant snacks and drinks, vitamin-rich Kale, and I cook with nutrient rich coconut oil. I make sure I exercise (pain allowing), by regularly using my pilates reformer and walking. Exercise helps release endorphins which help fight depression, keeps the body healthy and strong, maintains weight and helps ease stress, all of which are helpful during menopause. I also use massage with aromatherapy blends, to help improve mood and health.
If you fancy trying one of the 3 Promensil supplements, depending on your menopausal stage, I’d suggest starting a good couple of months before summer. That way, your body has built up the supplement and you may start to reap the benefits. I’m continuing to use Promensil to see how I go through the warmer months this time round. I appreciate some women don’t suffer with too many symptoms, but frequent hot flushes and sweats really are horrible, so any help is good in my book.
Are you menopausal and feel Promensil Red Clover supplements are something you’re like to try?
