Why take this?
Sona Femikår® Plus is a dietary supplement made with a special blend of concentrated Soy Isoflavones, Omega 3 essential fatty acids, vitamins and calcium - all with known beneficial properties that help women during the menopause by reducing the frequency and severity of associated symptoms.
The Menopause, or "Change of life," can be defined as the time in a woman's life after her menses has stopped. Although not fatal or dangerous, menopause can be extremely uncomfortable and socially embarrassing (hot flushes in particular). Many of the medical problems that women are warned will develop with the onset of menopause (osteoporosis, heart disease) can be prevented or eased by following healthier dietary and lifestyle choices.
What are Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA)?
Alpha Linolenic Acid is a kind of omega-3 fatty acid found in plants. It is similar to the omega-3 fatty acids that are in fish oil, called eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Your body can change alpha-linolenic acid into EPA and DHA. ALA contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.
What are Isoflavones?
Isoflavones, or phytoestrogens, are plant-derived nonsteroidal compounds that possess oestrogen-like biological activity. As well as being an anti-oxidant to help reduce the risk of cancer, isoflavones help to reduce the symptoms associated with menopause and guard against the onset of osteoporosis by protecting against bone loss.
What is Linseed Oil?
Linseed oil or flax, as it is also known, is a source of Omega 3 essential fatty acids known as alpha linolenic acid (ALA). Research has shown that linseed may help reduce the frequency and severity of hot flushes. Linseed oil contains the highest amount of Omega 3 fatty acids among vegetable oils. These fatty acids have a number of important health properties, particularly beneficial for cardiovascular (heart) health.
What about the other ingredients?
Sona Femikår® Plus also contains calcium and vitamin D which contribute to normal muscle function and the maintenance of bone and teeth. Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant, important for immune function and collagen formation and also for the normal function of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, skin and teeth. Vitamin E is anti-oxidant that protects cell membranes and other fat-soluble parts of the body from oxidative damage, while Folic Acid contributes to normal homocysteine metabolism which is important for cardiovascular (heart) health.
