A Familiar Story…

Imagine you're Linda, a 52-year-old project manager with a flair for gardening and a passion for weekend hiking. Life is busy, fulfilling, and active. But lately, you've been feeling like you're on an unending rollercoaster—thanks to menopause.

It starts on a typical Monday. You're presenting in a team meeting when a sudden wave of heat washes over you. The room feels like it's a hundred degrees, and you're struggling to keep your cool—literally. It's your third hot flash of the day, and it's only 11 AM. As the day progresses, these waves of heat become your unwanted companions, interrupting your focus and dampening your confidence.

Come night, sleep should be your sanctuary, but it's far from peaceful. You toss and turn, blankets on and off, trying to get some rest while battling night sweats. The next morning, you're as exhausted as if you'd run one of your weekend trails.

The mood swings are the hardest. You feel like you're in a perpetual fog, sometimes sunny, sometimes stormy. Yesterday, you teared up over a spilled coffee and snapped at your partner over dinner for something trivial.

It's not you, and you hate feeling this way.

Understanding Menopause and Its Symptoms

“Most women had limited knowledge and negative attitudes towards the menopause, leaving them unprepared to cope with the physical and psychological changes associated with this stage of life.”1

This transition typically begins between the ages of 45 and 55 but can start earlier or later. The average age for Canadian women is 50.1 years old.2 It is a natural biological process, not a medical illness, but it can cause significant discomfort in someone’s day-to-day life. The overmedicalization of a natural process also encourages a negative dialogue about a transition period that millions experience every year!1,3 The most common symptoms include:

  • Hot Flashes and Night Sweats: Sudden waves of heat that can cause sweating and discomfort, whether during the day or night.
  • Mood Swings and Irritability: Emotional cycles that are taxing and possibly strain personal relationships.
  • Sleep Issues: Difficulty sleeping due to night sweats or increased anxiety.
  • Vaginal Dryness: Decreased estrogen levels can lead to dryness, which can cause discomfort and even bleeding during and after sexual activity.

Natural solutions for menopause from A.Vogel

A.Vogel has crafted two standout supplements, MenoForce and MenoSupport Complex to assist women in managing all of the wild symptoms, naturally and effectively.

Sage-Based Support for Menopause

MenoForce harnesses the therapeutic benefits of freshly harvested sage, a herb that is well-known in traditional remedies for its health benefits, particularly in women experiencing hot flashes.

  • Clinically Proven: MenoForce has undergone three separate clinical trials, revealing its significant impact on reducing the frequency and intensity of hot flashes and night sweats. One study showed a 50% reduction in hot flash frequency in just four weeks, escalating to 64% by the eighth week.4 The intensity of hot flashes also decreased dramatically, with severe episodes reduced by up to 79%, and the most intense by 100%. Furthermore, a follow-up randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study echoed these findings, showing a 39.2% improvement in overall menopause symptoms as per the Menopause Rating Scale, and a significant 55.3% improvement in hot flash severity within just one month. These numbers reflect tangible changes, where participants felt a profound impact on their quality of life, underscoring the potential of MenoForce as a reliable aid during menopause.5
  • Simple and Safe: This sage-based supplement requires only a single daily tablet. It is crafted from organic, non-GMO sage, bringing you high quality and safety without synthetic additives.

Daily Support Complex

  • MenoSupport Complex: This product is formulated with soy isoflavones, magnesium and hibiscus. Soy isoflavones act like estrogen in the body, helping to stabilize hormonal fluctuations that occur during menopause.6 Magnesium aids in improving sleep, quality and reducing irritability,7 while hibiscus is known for its cardioprotective effects.8 This is especially important considering women’s risk of cardiovascular disease and events increase in the first few years of menopause.9

Consult your Healthcare Provider: always consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new supplement regime, especially important during menopause, and if you were taking other medication’s or have underlying health conditions.

Combine with Lifestyle Changes: best for results, combine these products with healthy lifestyle changes. Regular exercise, a balanced diet, and staying hydrated can further help manage symptoms and enhance overall well-being during the transition.
