Product in Focus
Remifemin® is a natural herbal product used for the relief of the symptoms of menopause. Remifemin® contains a plant extract used by millions of women around the world and is a result of more than half a century of medical research. Remifemin® is recognised as one of Germany's foremost natural products made specifically for women's health at the age of menopause.
Menopause is a gradual process. The events preceding and following menopause amount to a huge change for women both physically and socially. Physically, this process has three stages:
- Perimenopause (before menopause)
The period leading up to menopause, or the transition to menopause is a stage that can begin several years before menopause. Everyone has different symptoms at different times (and at different ages). While every woman will experience perimenopause in her own unique way, the transition Is often characterised by erratic periods, hot flushes, night sweats, irritability and mild anxiety.
This refers to your final menstrual period. The menopause itself is said to have occurred after 12 consecutive months of no periods. The above symptoms are often present during this time too, although often less intense.
This term refers to the time after menopause. Some menopause related symptoms may still occur.
In contrast to soy or red clover, Remifemin® does not contain any phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens such as isoflavones are known to mimic hormones and can lead to some nasty side effects similar to those of HRT. Remifemin contains a high potency, standardised extract of Black Cohosh which has been heavily studied for over 60 years and proven to provide safe and effective relief of menopausal symptoms.
Remifemin® is a proprietary extract from Cimicifuga racemosa that has been available since 1956 and the subject of numerous medical studies. Remifemin® does not contain phytoestrogens and does not exhibit oestrogen-like effects. It represents a natural alternative for women experiencing the uncomfortable symptoms of menopause.
As with most medicines the effectiveness can vary from person to person. Some women have experienced excellent results during the first two weeks, whilst others have reported more relief after four weeks. For the best results Remifemin® should be taken for at least twelve weeks and then continued if it provides the desired level of relief.
Remifemin Plus St. John’s wort is a new product in the Remifemin range which is formulated for women experiencing severe symptoms of menopause often experienced during peri-menopause such as intense hot flushes and night sweats.
Along with an increased amount of the proprietary extract of Actaea racemosa (Cimicifuga racemosa/black cohosh), Remifemin® Plus also contains St. John's Wort to assist with psychovegetative symptoms such as low mood, nervous tension, irritability and agitation.
