Remifemin 60 tablets



There was a time when menopause marked the end of active life for a woman. With the average life span of women at 78, this is no longer true today, as women will be spending another 30 years of their lives after menopause happens.

As such, many women today consider menopause to be an exciting new chapter of their lives, where they no longer have to worry about menstrual periods, unplanned pregnancies, young children and financial planning. The post-menopausal years are indeed the golden years!

Yet, menopausal symptoms are sometimes bothersome. They consist of hot flushes, sleeplessness, anxiety, moodiness and depression, which affect not only the women undergoing menopause but also the people around them.

Understanding the symptoms and taking the necessary steps to relieve menopausal discomfort can help ease the transition. More important is knowing that that there is help available and no woman needs to suffer in silence with menopausal complaints.

  What is menopause?

Menopause marks the end of female fertility, with the cessation of ovulation and menstruation in a woman. With menopause, the ovaries stop producing the hormone estrogen, commonly known as the ‘female hormone’ as it is responsible for the feminine characteristics in women.

Menopause typically occurs between the ages of 47 and 55. Before menopause is confirmed, most women will start experiencing menopausal or climacteric symptoms such as:

  • Hot flushes and profuse sweating
  • Mood swings
  • Troubled sleep patterns
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Headaches & dizziness
  • Palpitations

Menopausal symptoms can be managed with various ways, a popular option being the Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). However, HRT has been linked to increased risks of female conditions such as endometrial, ovarian and breast cancers over the last few years. This has resulted in many women resorting to alternative and natural therapies such as Dong Quai, black cohosh, red clover and soy, in the recent years for menopausal relief. All these herbs have been used for generations since ancient times by women to reduce or relieve menopausal complaints for a better quality of life. Scientific innovations have now making these herbs available in easy-to-consume and hygienic form for modern women.

Apart from supplements, it also helps to practise a healthy lifestyle when undergoing menopause. Here are some tips:

  • Maintain a balanced diet –take less salt and fats, especially those hidden in processed foods 
  • Learn to relax and unwind- avoid overstressing yourself with work 
  • Exercise more, as it keeps your weight down and releases endorphins, the happy hormone, in your brain 
  • Stop smoking and avoid excessive caffeinated drinks 
  • Take calcium and vitamin D daily for optimum bone health 
  • Visit your gynecologist for regular check-ups 
  • Stay active in social activities or learn a new hobby
  • Spend more time with friends and family 
  • Keep a positive outlook on life 
  • Take omega –3 supplements to protect against increased risks of heart disease and maintain healthy cholesterol levels
