A daily food supplement to contribute to the regulation of hormonal activity, the maintenance of normal bones, the normal energy yielding metabolism, energy release and reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Made with vitamin B6, vitamin D, Magnesium, Zinc, Biotin, Copper, Iron, Soya isoflavones, Red clover extract, Sage leaf extract and freeze dried Manuka honey.

The Manuka honey is sourced from our very own Manuka Doctor hives nestled in the luscious green mountains of New Zealand. The honey is freeze dried into powder form and added to our formula which is lovingly made in the UK to the very highest standard. The MGO (methylglyoxal) level in Manuka Honey is derived from DHA (dihydroxyacetone) which is naturally present in the nectar of the Manuka Bush.

Manuka honey (MGO 300)

This high-strength honey – made by bees collecting nectar from New Zealand Manuka bushes – contains the active ingredient methylglyoxal (MGO), which has an antimicrobial [1] and also anti-bacterial effect on the body, according to a 2018 study by Ulster University [2]. Our Manuka honey is harvested from Manuka Doctor hives high in the New Zealand mountains, and then freeze-dried into powder.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity (EFSA) and is readily available in red pepper, garlic, nuts, fish and meats.

Not only does vitamin B6 help relieve depressive symptoms in menopausal women, it has also proven effective in relieving hot flushes [3].

Manuka Plus Meno-Hive contains 10mg of vitamin B6, over 714% of your recommended daily intake.

Vitamin D

A lack of estrogen weakens your bones as you age; vitamin D works to slow down and minimise the weakening process and has been proven in clinical trials to maintain healthy bones (EFSA). If you do not get enough vitamin D, you are at greater risk of bone loss and broken bones as your body needs vitamin D to absorb calcium [4].

Magnesium, Zinc, Copper, Calcium

Trace minerals such as magnesium, zinc, copper and calcium are all essential for health. They help promote strong bones and are involved in the interaction of more than 300 enzyme reactions and the formation of healthy bones and teeth [5].

According to the European Commission, Magnesium can also help reduce feelings of tiredness and fatigue [6].

Biotin is another B-vitamin, which can be of help for menopausal symptoms. Biotin, is needed to help your nervous system function normally and for optimum psychological health, says the European Commission, contributing to normal energy yielding metabolism and energy release [7].

Soy Isoflavones

Although no authorised EU health claim, Soya isoflavones are a class of antioxidants often referred to as phytoestrogens which have a similar structure to that of the hormone estrogen, the female hormone that declines with the menopause, and can attach to and activate estrogen receptors in your body [8].

Red Clover

Red clover (Trifolium pratense) is a legume which also contains isoflavones. For this reason, it may have benefits for menopausal symptoms. One small study found that red clover supplementation decreased menopausal symptoms and reduced triglyceride levels [9].

Sage Leaf

People use Sage for several menopausal symptoms including night sweats, hot flashes and mood swings. One study found that a fresh sage preparation lowered the severity and the number of hot flashes (also called hot flushes) in menopausal women [10].

Bee pollen

One small study found Bee pollen to be helpful in reducing menopausal symptoms like hot flashes when taken consistently for three months [11].
