ESTROgain contains

Isoflavones from Red Clover and Soy Bean. Isoflavones have similar properties to estrogen and progesterone. Changes in the hormonal balance cause many of the problems associated with menopause, and isoflavones have been shown to help alleviate some of the symptoms linked to menopause, such as hot flushes, nighttime sweating, irregular sleeping etc.

Vitamins B2 and B6 have also been shown to have estrogen-like effects and have been demonstrated to have beneficial effect in combating menopause problems.

Antioxidants - Resveratrol, Green Tea Extract, Vitamins C and E, Copper and Selenium etc - are nutrients that have the capability to help protect the DNA, proteins and fat in the body and to prevent cell damage. It has been documented well that protection against oxidative stress is of great importance for the health and wellbeing during and after menopause.

Nutrients that aid the maintenance of a healthy nervous system and psychological function. Many of the ingredients in ESTROgain™ have been shown to be of importance in the maintenance of a healthy nervous system and psychological function, e.g. reduction of stress and depression. It is well known that menopause and the changes in body functions related with menopause, may cause mental strain and depression. By adding nutrients that are important for the maintenance of a healthy nerve system and psychological function, we hope to make life better for our consumers.

Bone-building and healthy cardiovascular system. It is well known that the risk of cardiovascular diseases and osteoporosis increases after menopause. We have therefore included a number of nutrients that help protect the cardiovascular system and the maintenance of bones. In countries with low intake of calcium it may in addition be wise to add a calcium supplement. Magnesium, zinc, copper and vitamins D and K that are all important for the production of strong bones, are contained in ESTROgain™. For cardiovascular health it may similarly we wise to add a supplement of omega-3 fatty acids.

What is menopause?

Menopause is a normal part of life, just like puberty. It is the time of a woman’s last menstrual period, and when she is no longer fertile. Normally, a doctor will define menopause as one year after the last menstrual period. This is because during this stage of life, menstruation cycles may vary – with a break in the menstrual cycle for several months followed by occasional menstruations.

The transition usually has three parts: perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause.
- Changes usually begin with perimenopause. This can begin several years before a woman’s last menstrual period. Changing levels of estrogen and progesterone, which are two female hormones made in the ovaries, might lead to symptoms.
- Menopause comes next, the final end of the menstrual periods. After a full year without a period, you can say the woman has been “through menopause,” and perimenopause is over.
- Postmenopause follows perimenopause and lasts the rest of your life.

The average age of a woman having her last period, menopause, is 51 years. But, some women have their last period in their forties, and some have it later in their fifties.

Throughout their reproductive years, women’s ovaries produce the female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone. These hormones not only prepare the womb (uterus) for a possible pregnancy, but they also affect things like the skin and mucous membranes. Every month a new egg matures inside a follicle in an ovary. The follicle produces hormones itself. If the mature egg is not fertilized after it is released from the ovary (ovulation), the woman has a menstrual period. During the time leading up to menopause the ovaries gradually make less and less hormones. A woman has reached menopause when her ovaries stop releasing eggs. All of the egg cells a woman will ever have are already inside her ovaries when she is born. It is thought that there is a link between the time when a woman reaches menopause and the time when her supply of egg cells is used up. Before the age of about 40, the number of follicles that mature decreases gradually. After that, the number decreases quite quickly, until no more follicles mature.
Women might go through menopause at a younger age as a side effect of a treatment, such as the removal or radiation of both ovaries in the treatment of cancer. This is known as induced or artificial menopause. Although induced menopause usually causes similar symptoms to natural menopause, the issues surrounding induced menopause are often very different.

If a woman would like to know for sure whether she has entered menopause, a doctor can measure the levels of various hormones in her blood. But the levels of hormones in her blood will not tell her anything about whether she could still get pregnant, or whether it is worth considering treatment if she has menopause-related problems.
The overall level of estrogen gradually decreases during menopause. This changes the balance between estrogens and other hormones. The body also reacts to the reduction in estrogen by producing more of another type of hormone called follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH).
These changes are typical during menopause. But measuring hormone levels is usually not a reliable way to determine whether a woman’s menopause is already over. This is because hormone levels can fluctuate a lot around the time of her last menstrual period. Looking at ovarian activity cannot provide any definite answers either. Even if a woman's periods are already very irregular, she might still get pregnant.

Symptoms of menopause

Menopause is in itself not a disease. Still, many women experience problems during perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause.

Signs or symptoms at menopause may vary. That’s because estrogen is used by many parts of the body. As you have less estrogen, you could have various symptoms. Here are the most common changes you might notice at midlife. Some may be part of aging rather than directly related to menopause.

  • Change in your period. This might be what a woman notices first. The periods may no longer be regular. They may be shorter or last longer. One might bleed less than usual or more. These are all normal changes, but to make sure there isn’t a problem, it is recommended to see one’s doctor if:
    • Your periods come very close together
    • You have heavy bleeding
    • You have spotting
    • Your periods last more than a week
    • Your periods resume after no bleeding for more than a year
  • Hot flashes. Many women have hot flashes, which can last a few years after menopause. They may be related to changing estrogen levels. A hot flash is a sudden feeling of heat in the upper part or all of your body. Your face and neck become flushed. Red blotches may appear on your chest, back, and arms. Heavy sweating and cold shivering can follow. Flashes can be very mild or strong enough to wake you from your sleep (called night sweats). Most hot flashes last between 30 seconds and 10 minutes.
  • Vaginal health and bladder control.Your vagina may get drier. This could make sexual intercourse uncomfortable. Or, you could have other health problems, such as vaginal or bladder infections. Some women also find it hard to hold their urine long enough to get to the bathroom. This loss of bladder control is called incontinence. You may have a sudden urge to urinate, or urine may leak during exercise, sneezing, or laughing.
  • Sleep. Around midlife, some women start having trouble getting a good night’s sleep. Maybe you can’t fall asleep easily, or you wake too early. Night sweats might wake you up. You might have trouble falling back to sleep if you wake up during the night.
  • Sex.You may find that your feelings about sex are changing. You could be less interested. Or, you could feel freer and sexier after menopause. After 1 full year without a period, you can no longer become pregnant.
  • Mood changes.You might find yourself more moody or irritable around the time of menopause. Scientists don’t know why this happens. It’s possible that stress, family changes such as growing children or aging parents, a history of depression, or feeling tired could be causing these mood changes.
  • Your body seems different.Your waist could get larger. You could lose muscle and gain fat. Your skin could get thinner. You might have memory problems, and your joints and muscles could feel stiff and achy. Are these a result of having less estrogen or just related to growing older? Experts don’t know the answer.

Two common health problems can start to happen at menopause, and you might not even notice.

Osteoporosis. Day in and day out, your body is busy breaking down old bone and replacing it with new healthy bone. Estrogen helps control bone loss, and losing estrogen around the time of menopause causes women to lose more bone than is replaced. In time, bones can become weak and break easily. This condition is called osteoporosis – a common problem among elderly people where women are more at risk than men.

Heart disease. After menopause, women are more likely to have heart disease. Changes in estrogen levels may be part of the cause. But, so is getting older. As you age, you may gain weight and develop other problems, like high blood pressure. These could put you at greater risk for heart disease.

Prevalence of symptoms and treatment options

Several population studies have been carried out mapping the prevalence of menopausal symptoms.

According to an American study, 85 % of all women report one or more symptoms, and close to 10 % visit a doctor for their symptoms. Hot flashes are reported by 6 – 13 % during the early stages of perimenopause to 33 – 63 % during the later stages of the menopausal transition. Among women who have entered the early postmenopausal period as much as 79 % of all women experience these problems.
Depressed mood affects 28 – 29 % of all women, again somewhat higher during the early postmenopausal period. Sleep symptoms affect 31 % during the perimenopausal period, increasing to approx. 45 % during the first three years of the postmenopausal period. Various forms of sexual dysfunction are also widespread with 42 % during the perimenopausal period rising to 88 % after menopause.

Cognitive symptoms (e.g. problems remembering names) were reported by 31 % of participants before the menopausal transition, increasing to 42-45 % during perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause.
Vaginal dryness, which is a problem of only 4 % of women in perimenopause, increases to 21 % closer to menopause and as much as 47 % three years into postmenopause.
Urinary incontinence is another problem appearing during and after menopause. As many as 57 % of the women in a study reported incontinence problems. Somatic symptoms include stiffness and soreness. Both of these symptoms increase during menopause and reach as many as 57 % two years after menopause.

A Norwegian study generally show lower rates of menopausal symptoms. Whether this has cultural, genetic or dietary reasons is unknown. In this Norwegian study 36 % of the respondents reported daily hot flashes. Bothersome hot flashes increased with age and peaked 1-2 years after menopause. Night sweats and vaginal dryness were also studied in the same investigation. Also here findings are lower than in the American data with night sweats affecting approx. the same number of respondents as hot flashes, while vaginal dryness affected 39 % of the respondents at the later stages of menopause.

Osteoporosis and coronary diseases are not considered as menopausal ailments. Still, the risk of these diseases increases during and after menopause. A food supplement, e.g. Osteosyl® for bone health and/or a change of lifestyle in order to avoid high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and other risk factors linked to coronary diseases may be therefore be a good advice. In this connection it is also important to obtain enough physical exercise, avoid overweight, eat fruits and vegetables as well as avoiding smoking.

Treatment options

Staying healthy after menopause may mean making some changes in the way you live.

General recommendations include:

  • Don’t smoke. If you do use any type of tobacco, stop - it’s never too late to benefit from quitting smoking.
  • Eat a healthy diet, low in fat, high in fiber, with plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain foods, as well as all the important vitamins and minerals.
  • Make sure you get enough calcium and vitamin D in your diet or with vitamin/mineral supplements if recommended by your doctor.
  • Do weight-bearing exercise, such as walking, jogging, or dancing, at least 3 days each week for healthy bones. But try to be physically active in other ways for your general health.

Medical treatment

During perimenopause, some doctors suggest birth control pills to help with very heavy, frequent, or unpredictable menstrual periods. These pills might also help with symptoms like hot flashes, as well as prevent pregnancy.

If a woman is bothered by symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, or vaginal dryness, her doctor might suggest taking estrogen (as well as progesterone, if you still have a uterus). This is known as menopausal hormone therapy (MHT). Some people still call it hormone replacement therapy or HRT. Taking these hormones will probably help with menopause symptoms. It also can prevent the bone loss that can happen at menopause.

Menopausal hormone therapy has risks. That is why the U.S. Food and Drug Administration suggests that women who want to try MHT to manage their hot flashes or vaginal dryness use the lowest dose that works for the shortest time it’s needed.
One alternative is to take phytoestrogens – estrogen-like substances present in certain plants, e.g. red clover and soy (as contained in Estrogain™).
