Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when levels of the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone fall, also known as the “change of life”.
Hormone Replacement Therapy has been used in an effort to revamp low oestrogen levels but HRT has a dark side. Over the last 20 years studies such as the Million Women Study (UK) and Women’s Health Initiative (US) have found a significant increase in the risk of breast cancer and heart disease from HRT.
HRT isn’t the only option – Nature has provided us with many remedies like
- Spear Mint Tea
- Sweet Potatoes
- Black Cohosh
- Dong Quai
- Red Clover
- Soy Products like Nutri5®
What is Nutri5®?
Nutri5® is a strawberry-flavoured instant soya shake mix which contains a unique combination of high quality soya protein, soya fibre and soya germ. The soy isoflavones in Nutri5® are quite similar in structure to human oestrogen, and as such trigger similar responses in the body. It was developed as the result of over 20 year’s research into the benefits of soya by Dr Lars Hoie.
Given this, Nutri5® can help to alleviate the discomfort associated with menopause such as hot flushes, sweating, restlessness, and irritability.
“I am a loyal user of many Nikken products and in Spring 2009 I was introduced to Nutri5®. I am 55 years old and began suffering from night sweats and disrupted sleep, so I started taking Nutri5® twice a day. After only my 2nd week I noticed a difference! My hot sweats decreased and I slept all the way through the night until the morning. I highly recommend anyone suffering from menopausal symptoms to try Nutri5®, it has really helped me cope with the discomfort of menopause.” – Kerstin Olofsson, Sweden
