At Nutrition FX we have been helping women through the menopause since 2003. In that time we have answered a wide variety of questions about the menopause and FX menopause 3™, it’s impact on well-being, what therapies may work and what are placebos. 6 questions are asked more than any others:
FX menopause helps most women. By adding FX menopause to your existing diet you add extra phytoestrogens. By increasing your intake of phytoestrogens you may reduce the causes of flushing and night sweats. Please see Menopause Management; Your Options, part of the National Menopause Awareness Campaign, kindly supported by Dr Chris Steele MBE.
FX menopause is a proprietary extract of phytoestrogen from Mung beans. Mung beans have been a part of Asian cuisine for thousands of years. When sprouted they are usually just called bean sprouts.
Yes. Not withstanding FX menopause being an extract from a conventional food. The supplement has been tested to confirm that it is non-toxic when consumed in high volume and over an extended period of time. These medical grade tests confirm that FX menopause is safe to use throughout the menopause years and during post menopause.
How quickly depends on you and your body; individual results may vary. Given that you use the correct intake for your stage of the menopause and don’t forget to take any capsules, your well-being should start showing noticeable signs of improvement within 4 weeks. The average delay between adding FX menopause to your diet and seeing the benefits is the same as what you would experience with HRT or any other effective therapy.

Phytoestrogen are sterol molecules found naturally in many fruits, vegetables and seeds (over 1000 known). We all consume phytoestrogen, often daily, and these are readily used throughout our bodies. During the menopause years and beyond, when the level of oestrogens that we produce falls, proactively supplementing with phytoestrogen can significantly enhance well-being, offering the same “feel good, look good” factor enjoyed by many Asian women.

No. FX menopause does not contain Soy isoflavones.
Menopause is a natural biological process; the permanent end of menstruation and fertility. It is defined as occurring 12 months after your last menstrual period.
Menopause is not a medical illness. Even so, the physical and emotional symptoms of menopause can disrupt your sleep, reduce your energy, be the cause of uncontrollable feelings like sadness and loss and reduce your long term health and appearance.
Hormonal changes, principally a reduction in oestrogen, cause the physical symptoms of menopause; mistaken beliefs about the menopausal transition are partly to blame for the emotional ones.
It is important to realise that the menopause does not mean the end of your life is close; you've still got as much as half your life to go. Secondly, menopause does not take away your sexuality and femininity.
You may be one of the many women who find it a release to stop facing periods and worrying about pregnancy.
What is very important, even though menopause is not an illness, you should not hesitate to get help if you're having moderate to severe symptoms. Many therapies are available, from lifestyle adjustments to hormone therapy.
