Symptoms Such as Hot Flashes
Menopause is a natural process that occurs due to the changes in the hormone levels in a female body, namely progesterone and estrogen. The fact is that hot flashes and insomnia can be avoided. The supplement market offers a great variety of products specially designed for relieving hormonal fluctuations in menopausal period. MenoQ promises to restore hormonal harmony. It is a new formula that addresses the menopause symptoms such as hot flashes, feeling tense and anxious for no reason, weight gain without changing the diet, loss of sexual desire, night sweats, irritability and mood swings. These symptoms can become a real burden for many women.
MenoQ is manufactured in an FDA approved manufacturing facility in the United States of America. There is an official website which seems to be informative at first sight, but when I started looking for the name of the company producing the product I failed. There is no information about possible side effects of using MenoQ as well. They only claim that stick to some control standards and guarantee purity and safety of their ingredients.
MenoQ contains a great amount of ingredients, so it's difficult to say whether they are used in proper proportions. The manufacturer doesn't mention dosages of each ingredient in the product. They only praise how good these components are. Let's have a look at them.
Vitamin D (Cholecalciferol) is important for maintaining the health of bones due to its ability to improve calcium absorption in the bones. This vitamin D can also positively influence your mood, which is important for each person. But I cannot see how this ingredient can prevent menopause symptoms.
Vitamin K (Phytonadione) helps to fight osteoporosis which leads to the loss of bone mineral density. The matter is that this substance can only partly help to strengthen bones but it cannot remove the influence of menopause on this sphere of women's health. The same can be said about Calcium (as Citrate & Phosphate), the next ingredient of MenoQ. It makes bones stronger but nothing else. To have permanent effect you will need to take Calcium all the time but it can be harmful for your health. So, this is not the best way to protect your bones
Phosphorus (as Calcium Phosphate) has a positive effect on the hardness of bones. Women become less subjected to possible fracture but they cannot be protected to the fullest. Red Clover Flower Powder and Red Clover Powdered Extract are the first ingredients which can potentially remove night sweats and hot flashes. These flavones can fight estrogen dominance as well.
Green Tea Leaf Powdered Extract is said to combat hot flashes but there is a possibility that it will worsen the condition. Besides, it contains caffeine which can be unhealthy for women with certain illnesses and diseases.
Guggul Gum Resin Powdered Extract is beneficial in the treatment of many ailments, including for bone health. It also can help to lose weight but this ingredient cannot remove the root problem of menopause. Chaste Berry Powder is usually used for PMS but it has little to do with menopause. So it can be of little help when used to fight such menopause symptoms, as weight gain, hot flashes, and fatigue.
Dong Quai Powder is said to contain phytoestrogens which are able to restore the balance of progesterone and estrogen in the human body. Unfortunately, it can effective only when used in higher dosages. And we don't know what amount of this powder is contained in MenoQ.
Soy Isoflavones are said to have estrogen-like effects but this fact hasn't been scientifically proven yet. So, you cannot trust your hormones to these substances. Wild Yam Root Powder is promised to raise the levels of progesterone relieving sleeping troubles, night sweats, mood swings, etc. Black Cohosh Root Powder is claimed to cause a decline in night sweats, hot flashes, and feelings of anxiety but there is no clinical proof of this claim.
Cnidium Monnieri Fruit Powder is said to be a natural aphrodisiac but it proves to be ineffective in raising a sexual desire and libido. Besides, it's unable to remove dryness of vagina which is the main problem in sexual relations with a man. Black Pepper Extract is like an additional ingredient in the supplement that helps the body to absorb other compounds in the formula.
The manufacturer doesn't mention any chance of experiencing side effects of using MenoQ. Thus, I can conclude that something is concealed. The product may be unnatural of ineffective. There is also no information about the dosage of different ingredients in the supplement. According to a number of big clinical studies, the product can increase the risk of bleeding disorders and cardiac diseases. Menouquil is prohibited to be used in the period of pregnancy and breast-feeding as one of its ingredients, dong quai, can be unsafe for the baby. This component negatively influences the uterus muscles. One report links the product's herbal combination with birth defects in children whose mothers used the supplement.
Another restriction for using MenoQ is that it can worsen bleeding disorders. The main ingredient of the supplement has a property to slow blood clotting, at the same time increasing the risk of bleeding and bruising in many patients. The supplement should be avoided by women who suffer from the following hormone-sensitive conditions: uterine cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, uterine fibroids and endometriosis. Its main ingredient, Dong quai, functions as estrogen which can worsen the condition.
People with protein S deficiency may have blood clots; that's why they should refuse from products containing dong quai. If you're planning to have a surgery, stop using MenoQ at least two weeks before it. Don't start taking the supplement without consulting your doctor.
"Took MenoQ for relief of Hot Flashes. Took as directed and it had no effect whatsoever"
"I decided to give MenoQ a try. The hot flashes never went away. After 3 weeks, I started having bad lower back pain. I gained 5 pounds. During week 4, I began having abdominal cramps"
"I've been taking menoQ as recommended for two weeks, with no results at all"
It can be order via different retailer websites such as Amazon, GNC, Walmart. One bottle of MenoQ contains 120 pills. It is recommended to take two tablets of the product twice a day with a glass of water. The first dosage should be taken in the morning before breakfast and the second one about one hour before going to bed.
I don't think that MenoQ can take proper care of your menopause symptoms and health in general because it has a great number of serious drawbacks. First of all, the product can be dangerous because of its side effects and health restrictions. It hasn't been checked in any serious clinical studies, so one cannot trust its manufacturer. MenoQ can be purchased only online. There isn't enough information about each of the product's ingredients.
There are some advantages, however. The supplement's manufacturer offers a 60 day money back guarantee. You may get an opportunity to receive a coupon code (REV10) that will give you 10% discount for all purchases at the official website of MenoQ. The product doesn't remove all symptoms of menopause. Summing up, I cannot recommend MenoQ to usage as the modern market offers a great variety of other products that can cope with menopausal symptoms much better and safer.
