3 to 6 consecutive months
This product can be used
when the menstrual cycle starts to become irregular with or
without the appearance of the other clinical signs associated
with the menopause.
Menopause is recommended in presence of soya allergy, because
the ISOFLAVONES included in this formula originated from the Red
Clover and not from soya’s bean. This product is free of wheat,
soya, corn, yeast, peanut, gluten, egg and dairy products. It
does not contain preservatives, sweeteners, colouring agents,
artificial flavours and is exempt of GMO.
Mechanism of action:
Viazen Menopause helps
to relieve menopause discomforts in several ways. Red clover
isoflavones seem to be responsible for the majority of the
therapeutic benefits while contributing to control the
This effect is
associated with affinity (due to the similarity of their
chemical structure) of the isoflavones to estradiol receptors
and their capacity to act as agonists and antagonists.
Biochanine and formononetine are the main isoflavones present in
the red clover.
These molecules are
respectively metabolized in vivo in genisteine and diadzeine.
Moreover, these four isoflavones have an anti-androgenic
activity. It seems that the red clover also has a regulating
action on the RNA messenger of progesterone receptor. Black
cohosh is approved by the Commission E and the World Health
Organization, as a specific treatment to relieve menopause
symptoms, and it is largely widespread in Europe.
glycosides, the phenylpropanoids, the organic acids, the
polyphenols and the lignanes are the main active components
having shown a pharmacological activity. Black cohosh doesn’t
seem to have significant direct oestrogenic effects, but rather
an anti-oestrogenic effect. Its therapeutic action would also be
associated to a serotoninergic effect and as an agonist effect
to opiates receptors, which help reducing the physiological
stress associated to menopause.
Magnesium comes to
potentiate the regulation of the hormonal and nervous functions,
thus allowing the reduction of the stress level. The scientific
literature emphasizes that the oxidative stress (radical free >
antioxidants) is increased in the course of menopause, which is
associated with the process of ageing and the development of
Viazen Menopause formula
includes several sources of antioxidants, in order to counter
this process. The alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is an important
antioxidant. Its molecular structure enables to neutralize
several types of free radicals. This molecule also has the
capacity to recycle other antioxidants, including vitamin E,
vitamin C and the antioxidant enzyme glutathion, mainly
synthesized by the liver. Supporting liver detoxification
process ensures a more effective bio-transformation of
Several components of
black cohosh and red clover have also antioxidant activity. In
addition, black cohosh, red clover and magnesium offer a
protection against the loss of bone mass and thus contribute to
prevent the osteoporosis. Lastly, magnesium and the ALA are
necessary to energy production (ATP) and so will contribute to
reduce general tiredness, often present in the course of
The ingredients’ synergy of Viazen Menopause is the key of the
effectiveness of this SUPERIOR FORMULA.
