Linwoods MENOLIGNA has been developed specifically for women during the menopause stage of life. Our New Product Development team have selected only the highest quality natural ingredients backed by research, chosen for their specific benefits for female health and wellbeing.
Flax Hull Lignans
Lignans are naturally occurring phytoestrogens found in flaxseed which mimic the role of oestrogen. Flaxseed is particularly abundant in the lignan, secoisolariciresinol diglycoside (SDG). Lignans are found in the inner layer of the flaxseed hull. We have significantly increased the level of lignans in our MENOLIGNA blend to provide 300mg of SDG lignans per 30g serving.
Sprouted Flaxseed and Milled Chia
Cholesterol levels can increase during or after menopause, due to reduced levels of oestrogen (1) . Both Sprouted Flaxseed and Milled Chia are high in Omega 3 (ALA) which contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.
Reduced oestrogen levels can also impact your sleep causing exhaustion and fatigue (2). Sprouted Flaxseed and Milled Chia are high in Magnesium which contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Quinoa Sprouts are high in Vitamin B6 which contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity.
Acne can occur when hormone levels become unbalanced and your skin may become more dry, thin and sensitive (3). Quinoa Sprouts also contain Vitamin B2 which helps support the maintenance of normal skin.
Marine based Calcium, Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K2
Women lose bone rapidly in the first few years after the menopause which increases the risk of osteoporosis (4). Therefore, it’s important during the menopause to increase daily intake of calcium into the diet (5). Linwoods MENOLIGNA contains Marine based Calcium and Vitamin K2 which is needed for the maintenance of normal bones, and Vitamin D3 which contributes to normal absorption of Calcium.
Coenzyme Q10 is an enzyme that helps generate energy in your cells. Your body naturally produces CoQ10 but this production declines with age, making dietary sources important in helping maintain adequate levels.
