SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Natural Health International today announced that its menopause category-leading Femmenessence products will now be available at CVS/pharmacy® locations nationwide. Femmenessence is the first natural supplement to demonstrate, in published clinical trials, statistically significant effects on hormones in peri- and post-menopausal women.
"Our new relationship with CVS/pharmacy expands the availability of Femmenessence to women interested in safe, effective and natural ways to manage the symptoms of menopause – particularly during peri-menopause and after menopause," said James Frame, CEO of Natural Health International, makers of Femmenessence.
Common menopause symptoms, such as mood swings, hair loss, weight gain, sleep issues, low energy, headaches, libido changes, night sweats and hot flashes are caused by the fluctuation of hormones during peri-menopause and reduced hormone production post-menopause.
Clinical studies of Femmenessence showed more than eight out of 10 women using the products experienced a reduction of menopausal symptoms within two days to eight weeks. On average within three weeks – which is within the use of one package of the product – participants in the clinical research reported improvements in mood, hot flashes, night sweats, libido, vaginal dryness, sleep and energy levels.
"Femmenessence takes a fresh approach to women's health, addressing the cause, not just the symptom," said Frame. "Femmenessence does not introduce any hormones into the body, but instead supports the body's own hormone production – a more natural approach."
Femmenessence works by nourishing the glands in the body responsible for hormone production with a concentrated proprietary blend of maca -- a root that grows in the mountains of Peru.
"There are 13 different phenotypes of maca that are different colors, contain different active ingredient profiles and, most importantly, have different physiological effects in the body," said Frame. "Using the right type of maca is critical; the traditional maca powders you find in health stores are more the types of maca for men. The Femmenessence line has been designed after six years of research with three different combinations of maca, each uniquely developed for women at their stage of life, to address their specific symptoms and health needs."
The three different Femmenessence products for women are now available at CVS/pharmacy: Femmenessence MacaPause® for hormone balance at 50, 60, 70 and beyond; Femmenessence MacaLife® for hormone balance during peri-menopause; and Femmenessence MacaHarmony® for hormone balance, menstrual and reproductive health.
"The loss of hormones around menopause is one of the key life events that compromises a woman's physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, and yet even as life expectancy increases, it is often overlooked or just accepted," said Frame. "The clinically-shown impact Femmenessence has on hormones can provide relief for symptoms that can compromise quality of life; and has benefits for heart, bone and mental health, which are negatively affected at menopause."
As part of the brand's national expansion, Femmenessence has launched a new website (www.Femmenessence.com), designed to help women learn more about menopause-related symptoms and make informed choices about their health. The site provides detailed information on menopause symptoms, as well as the ability for customers to connect to the company's doctors and health experts to ask questions and receive support on their personal journey to more health, happiness and balance.
In addition to its arrival at CVS/pharmacy, Femmenessence is also available at Whole Foods Market, Sprouts and other leading natural health product retailers.
