Things to Consider When Buying Menopause Supplements

Navigating the world of supplements may seem overwhelming, given the multitude of options. Yet, if you're considering supplements to support you during the stages of menopause (perimenopause, menopause, or post-menopause), it's vital to choose ones aligned with your specific needs. Tailoring your supplement choices to address your health considerations can effectively support your body, give balance to your whole system, minimise your menopause symptoms, and pave the way for a smoother transition into post-menopause.

When choosing a vitamin or supplement, especially for perimenopause or menopause support, it's important to consider the following factors:

1. Ingredients Transparency: 

When selecting supplements, always choose brands that provide clear and transparent information about the ingredients in their products. Knowing what you're putting into your body is crucial for making informed decisions about your health. It’s estimated that 90% of all vitamin supplements contain manufacturing fillers added to cut costs and prolong the shelf life. Always ensure your chosen supplements are free from these unnecessary chemicals and focused solely on delivering the vitamins and minerals you need without unwanted additives.

2. Natural and Clinically Proven Ingredients:

Opt for supplements that use natural ingredients with proven efficacy. Ingredients like adaptogens, vitamins, minerals, and nootropics that have scientific backing or evidence of traditional medical use for their benefits and results. And be aware that, while they may sound good, multivitamins and supplements with a long list of ingredients often offer insufficient amounts of the vitamins and nutrients needed for optimal health.

3.Tailored Formulas: 

Perimenopause and menopause symptoms vary, so choose supplements that offer tailored solutions. Whether you need support for hormonal balance, hot flushes, improved mood, mental resilience or to combat fatigue, a supplement line that provides options for specific needs is best. 

At The Menopause Co., we firmly believe that there's no one-size-fits-all solution to menopause health. With over 34+ recognised menopause symptoms, each woman's journey and combination of symptoms are uniquely her own. Therefore, we take an individualised approach focused on custom combinations of targeted supplements for results you can genuinely feel.

4. Quality Manufacturing and Testing:

In the loosely regulated world of supplements and vitamins, be cautious of products made in uninspected facilities with minimal testing and checks. In Australia, opt for products either approved by the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) or, like The Menopause Co. products, produced in a compounding pharmacy that's licenced and qualified to make medicine using pharmaceutical-grade ingredients. This ensures that what's on the label is what's actually in the product and that it meets high-quality standards.

5. Compatible with Perscribed Menopause Medications:

Ensure that the menopause supplement you choose is compatible with any prescribed menopause medications you may be taking. It's important to avoid potential interactions or conflicts between supplement ingredients and medications.

All of our formulations at The Menopause Co. have been carefully created so you can mix and match to target your unique combination of symptoms and are compatible to take alongside prescribed menopause medications. When you purchase our products, we ask that you confidentially disclose any medications you are taking. If there is any concern, our pharmacist will contact you directly to discuss.

  

    Remember, if you have any concerns about adding new supplements to your daily routine, it's best to consult with your healthcare professional or menopause specialist.
