having just read another discussion it seems Menopace has helped some people, has anyone taken this or Menopace Plus? Am really trying to find something that helps? My head has been funny all day and my stomach has been aching all day.

    Hi ruth, my sis in law swears by menopace and is feeling better.

    I am perimenopausal an have been reading about it on here an some great ladies havegiven me some great advice especially for supplements to take that may help with my symptoms.

    So, recently I have been taking high doses of vitamin b6 and not sleeping very well either so I have been taking magnesium an hour before bed an im sleeping so much better.

    hope this might help

    Hi Ruth 

    i never used menopace, even the plus seems to have so little of each vit..

    i just used the vits that i knew worked for me.. ( i had a ten year peri ) 

    i found Rainforest food Maca 5.1 amazing in peri and still take it post meno.

    100mg B6 is very good for anxiety, etc etc .

    B12 5000mcg for energy 

    Vit E 400iu 

    solgar Chelated Magnesium .. ( doesnt upset the stomach like citrate and oxide) 

     1000mg Kelp ( simply supplements) as was having hair loss, took it for years, then i stopped for a while and my hair was coming out again, now its all stopped now i restarted it a few months ago.

    i take a few supplements and vits 

    Good luck

      Hi Jayneejay 

      i have read that Maca root can make you gain weight and make your bum and boobs bigger? Did you experience this as I don't want that to happen, also how long did the Maca take to work and how much did you take! Thanks Jay, it's so good to have someone to talk to about this.

      Hi, it is difficult to say as I take it with other things too but tingling in hands has gone, sickness not so bad now and dizzyness gone.  Bladder problems remain though and anxiety not much better.  I also take a multi vit, vit C, B complex and rose hip for joints. I think it is worth a try.XX

      Hi ruth 

      i am one of those that lost weight in peri and still in post meno..

      i didnt gain any weight at all .. I lost it...

      infact i only weight 114 lb ( 8 stone 11 ) i am 5ft 6 

      lost more lately but have been abit poorly..

      weight fell off me over peri and post meno, never been over weight, but was heavier than i am now..

      B6 helps with peri weigh gain, and muffin top tummy.. 

      When i think back Maca took about a month to kick in, thats taking daily, no fogetting. I take what i mentioned above, x 1 its equivilant to 2500mg just one capsule.. ( rainforest food Maca 5.1) 

      i shared info on another discussion about it and how good it is for menopause and sex drive etc..

      Forgot to say..

      i used Estroven Max also for a couple of years that was good..

      tried Menapol plus ( simply supplements) for a long while but didnt rate them for me ... I dont take either now, as post meno .. 

      still have my 150mg B6

      150mg B1 


      Solgar Chelated Magnesium 

      Maca 5.1 capsule

      Vit E 400iu

      Vit C

      Natecal ( Calcium and Vit D) 

      1000mg Kelp.

      That seems to work for me ..

      you will find tour own balance as you try things, it takes time, and they need a few weeks to take effect .

      Hi Ruth 

      no Maca didnt give me headaches at all..

      the only time i had migrainey headaches was at the end of peri ( just before my last three periods) .. I knew when i felt sick and a headache that a period was on the way.. 

      never had a headache since peri ended and now post meno 

      still take my 2500mg Maca Capsule daily
