Your doctor will be able to advise if this product is suitable for you.
Action of Promensil Menopause Double Strength:
Isoflavones, the active ingredient in Promensil, are naturally occurring plant oestrogens found mainly in legumes such as red clover, chickpeas, beans and lentils. Promensil is made specifically from red clover which contains all four principal types of dietary isoflavones, unlike many other legumes. The isoflavones in Promensil can complement the body's own oestrogen levels, which typically decline around menopause, and through this may help reduce menopause symptoms.
Dose Advice of Promensil Menopause Double Strength:
The recommended dose is one Promensil tablet per day. Each tablet contains 80 mg of the active ingredient, isoflavone phyto-oestrogen.
