As I approached 50, I began to realise that menopause was starting for me. At first, the symptoms weren’t too bad; irregular periods, mood swings and fatigue, nothing I hadn’t dealt with before as a woman! But as the years went on, my symptoms worsened. When the hot flushes began to disrupt my sleep and the brain fog impacted my memory, that’s when I knew I needed to look into getting support.
Initially, I went to my doctor. Not a lot was said and I was given HRT. What I had hoped would solve all, actually did very little for me and I was still left with migraines due to the hormonal imbalances I was facing, alongside the hot flushes that I had hoped would ease. Even trying menopause shampoo like Pantene hair biology. I knew there had to be something better, and that’s when I started researching natural remedies and solutions for menopause relief.
When researching, I found DR.VEGAN’s menopause supplement, MenoFriend®. This product claimed to help a range of menopausal symptoms. Initially, I was dubious about its claims, however, I saw that DR.VEGAN had conducted a series of research across 1000s of women and they found that 88% felt relief from some of their symptoms from the product and I thought this was a good reason to at least give it a try!
The supplement contains a range of herbs and adaptogens which aim to balance hormones and ease the most common symptoms like brain fog, hot flushes, mood swings and fatigue. This includes well-known ingredients such as Wild Yam, Dong Quai, Red Clover (providing isoflavones), Maca Root and B-Vitamins. DR.VEGAN supplements are also plant-based and free from any unnecessary fillers or additives like titanium dioxide. This made me want to try them even more because it was nice to finally find something that was only full of the stuff that would hopefully help me vs the junk that a lot of tablets contain!
On starting the supplements, I initially didn’t notice much difference. However, DR.VEGAN have an expert team of nutritionists on hand that you can reach out to and they assured me the product generally takes a few weeks for your hormones and body to adapt and therefore make a difference. At around week 3, I realised I had started sleeping well again. I wasn’t waking up due to my hot flushes and I did feel less emotional and less on edge. I hadn’t changed my dosage of HRT (which I had combined with MenoFriend® on the advice of the nutritionists) and figured the change must have been due to the supplement! Since then my menopausal symptoms have only improved, I no longer regularly get the migraines that I had previously experienced, my brain fog is much less severe and I finally started to feel like myself again. I would go as far as to say this product is a game-changer, I think I am cracking the menopause at last. Whilst HRT has helped me, so many of my symptoms that had been impacting me on a day-to-day basis were solved with MenoFriend®.
Since then I have subscribed to the product, which is another excellent service that DR.VEGAN offers. This means that my product comes on the same day each month and I don’t have to worry about reordering, plus you get 15% off the RRP! This has been particularly helpful for me, as my busy life tends to mean I forget to reorder until it’s too late! They also come with a handy pill tin which means I have been able to have a supply of supplements in my handbag at all times, in case I forget to take one earlier in the day. I really wouldn’t be without this product now and I recommend it to all of my friends who are experiencing the same thing.
