Just that really, I'm thinking of taking menopace, has anyone tried it? Did it work?

The ingredients (original) look like any other vitamin supplement. Which version were you looking at, and what benefits would you like?

Cartenoids, hops, chamomile, green tea, red clover, soya, isoflavones, you could consume them in other ways, too.

I was recommended this by friends and have just bought the original stuff on a 3 for 2 offer, hoping the mix of vitamins is a good one. Only started yesterday but thought was worth a go. Didn't want to pay the silly amounts they wanted for some of the other versions though.

There is nothing in the list of ingredients that you couldn't get from a healthy diet, with the addition of soya milk or yoghurt for isoflavins/ phytoestrogens The rest is just Vit B, C and trace minerals that are in all foods if you eat a varied diet.
Save you money and eat more fruit, veg, oily fish and a soya yoghurt.

I have a healthy diet, thanks, I was looking for experiences of people who had taken it, as per the op

That's interesting you were recommended it by friends milli it will be interesting to see if you notice a difference

Hi I use Menopace botanicals and i am glad i do. I suffer with quite bad joint aches particularly in my elbows. It keeps the pain at bay. I know it's the menopace as I ran out on holiday as soon as I restarted taking it things were fine. My advice is try them and see how you go

I've started taking these plus black cohosh and have noticed a difference in the night sweating, which was getting ridiculous. Time will tell if it's psychosomatic or actually working!

That sounds promising, I hope it continues

Costa, I know you were looking for experiences and I can't help there. Sorry! But I just thought it worth mentioning that it may be worth looking at the ingredients- as another poster mentioned- to see what you'd be taking. What works for one of us may do nothing for someone else, especially in peri when everything changes daily. All things in vitamin and mineral supplements are food or herb based, so you might be better off focusing on your worst symptoms then choosing a single product specifically for that. The RCOG has a downloadable leaflet on alternatives to HRT - herbs and so on- and the research on them all.

I've found I don't get palpitations when I take it x

Costacoffeeplease Sat 01-Oct-16 22:19:16

Oh, that's good, palpitations is one of my less welcome symptoms smile

Doesn't mean it will be the same for you but fingers crossed!
