How it works?

Along with self-care and exercise, PeriMenoFriend® is your go-to natural supplement, enabling you to take ownership of your health and hormones and be in control of your daily wellbeing during perimenopause.

Perimenopause is a stage of life that can last from a few months to a decade in the lead up to the menopause, so it is important to place greater emphasis on supporting the body and mind at the earliest possible time.


PeriMenoFriend® includes Vitamin B6 and Magnesium, which contribute to hormone regulation. 

Shatavari is an adaptogenic herb, traditionally used in Ayurvedic practices. It supports the health of the female reproductive system in addition to helping maintain balance in female physiology during and after the menopause. For women who may still be menstruating, Shatavari root has been shown to help regulate their cycles.

Phytoestrogens within the botanicals included in PeriMenoFriend® have traditionally been used as a natural alternative to medication. They have been shown to support hormonal balance in many clinical studies, and along with dietary and lifestyle modifications, they can help women thrive through their perimenopausal transition.

The hormonal changes that occur during perimenopause can impact many areas of women’s optimal wellbeing, including their energy levels and leading to fatigue.

Vitamins B5 and B6, Vitamin C and Magnesium contribute to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue and support an energy-yielding metabolism. 

Zinc supports macronutrient metabolism, helping the body convert the food we consume into an energy source. Ashwagandha root is acclaimed for its ability to support the body’s vitality as well as help mental and physical capacities, even in cases of weakness, exhaustion, tiredness and loss of concentration.

Traditionally used by Peruvian warriors, Maca is acclaimed for helping to maintain optimal stamina and vitality. Maca’s active constituents are particularly beneficial when feeling fatigued.

While women navigate through perimenopause, they are often juggling family life and work, and trying to hold it all together. This can be difficult at any time, and even more so when experiencing hormonal fluctuations and declining oestrogen that affect the brain, cognitive processes and mental performance.

PeriMenoFriend® provides key nutrients to support cognitive function, including Zinc in its most absorbable and effective picolinate form, which is also gentle on digestion.

Magnesium, Vitamins B6, B12 and Vitamin C contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system. Mental performance is supported by Vitamin B5, which can help women thrive in their day-to-day activities.

Botanical extracts in PeriMenoFriend®, including Sage, are being studied for their impact on cognitive tasks, working memory, and accuracy task / outcome measures. With its host of active constituents, including terpenes and phenolics, Sage is a valuable botanical for cognitive support.

Lemon balm is acclaimed for helping maintain a positive mood and good cognitive function.

The advanced blend of nutrients and botanicals in PeriMenoFriend® help provide a wonderful antidote for the modern lifestyles women lead while going through the perimenopause.

Vitamins B6, B12 and Vitamin C contribute to normal psychological function. 

Hops extract is acclaimed to exert a relaxing effect and induces mental and physical wellbeing, while also supporting sound and healthy sleep.

Ashwagandha provides organic ashwagandha root extract with the active compound, withanolides responsible for many of ashwagandha’s health benefits. Like Shatavari, Ashwagandha root extract has adaptogenic properties, which are studied for the support they give the body in its ability to better deal with stress. Ashwagandha root is acclaimed to be effective during times of mental and nervous tension, and moments of anxiousness, contributing to optimal relaxation and supporting mental and physical wellbeing.

Magnesium bisglycinate is a chelated form of magnesium where Magnesium is bound to the amino acid called ‘glycine’. It is an extensively studied and highly bioavailable form of magnesium compared to other forms and its gentle nature makes it suitable for those with sensitive digestive systems.

Evidence shows the combination of Magnesium and Vitamin B6 helps alleviate stress in those with particularly low levels of Magnesium. Low levels of magnesium combined with the lower testosterone levels experienced during the perimenopause can contribute to irritability and low moods and have other unwelcome health effects, so the combination of Magnesium and Vitamin B6 supports both the body and mind.

Lemon Balm contributes to optimal relaxation, helps contribute to physical and mental wellbeing, and can support a good night of sleep.

Supporting and investing in the health of bones is vital during perimenopause and menopause, where the reduction in bone density can increase the risk of conditions such as osteoporosis.

Vitamin D3, Vitamin K2 and Zinc contribute to the maintenance of healthy bones. The combination of Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K2 plays a pivotal role in contributing to bone health and protecting against the risk of osteoporosis that grows during this phase of life with the marked reduction in oestrogen. Keeping good bone mineral density and strong bones helps reduce the likelihood of bone fractures or falls.

Vitamin D3 and Magnesium contribute to the maintenance of normal muscle function. Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones and teeth. Studies also show that higher levels of Vitamin C are related to greater bone mineral density.

Using a more natural and holistic approach to bone health will help women through their perimenopausal journey. Phytoestrogens, including Red Clover and Maca are studied for their impact on bone health and the firmness of bones.

Research shows that 90% of women experience gut health issues during perimenopause and menopause, and women are twice as likely to first experience changing gut health symptoms during perimenopause than menopause. You can learn more in ‘Does menopause cause gut issues? The research’. Supporting the gut microbiome health can have a huge effect on preparing the body to transition through perimenopause and menopause, particularly if you already deal with gut health issues.

Dandelion root and Lemon Balm support digestion by contributing to the function of the intestinal tract. Dandelion root is acclaimed to have prebiotic effects and support the physiological pH balance of the stomach, both of which can help balance gut microflora, and support optimal gastrointestinal wellbeing.

Shatavari is acclaimed for supporting digestion and digestive juice flow, helping avoid gastric upsets during perimenopause. Sea buckthorn berry also supports intestinal tract activity, as well as metabolism.

For complete gut health support, you may wish to try Gut Works®, the multi award-winning prebiotic and probiotic providing 6 clinically studied bacterial strains and 50 billion CFU.

Caring for your skin is particularly important when going through the perimenopause and menopause because the skin barrier is more susceptible to dehydration and becomes thinner with time. Along with hormonal fluctuations, stress or sleep disturbances, this life stage can contribute to a loss of skin elasticity.

Within the first 5 years of the menopause, a staggering 30% of collagen is lost, which is why it is vital to adopt an ‘inside out’ approach. Remember, there is no such thing as ‘vegan collagen’, and taking a collagen supplement is proven to be less effective than fueling your body’s natural collagen production with supplements such as Skin Saviour®. However, PeriMenoFriend® is also uniquely formulated to provide daily support for healthy skin, nails and hair with clinically studied nutrients, at optimal dosages.

Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation, which is vital for healthy looking skin. Vitamin C is provided in an L-ascorbate form, which is a combination of Calcium and Vitamin C. This form, of Vitamin C provides the benefits of both nutrients in highly absorbable forms that are also kinder to your digestion. 

Zinc and Selenium contribute to the maintenance of hair and nails. Zinc also plays an active role in normal cell division in the body, which is involved in acne, lesions and wound healing. Zinc supports normal testosterone levels, which when low, can contribute to symptoms including tiredness, low libido and hair loss. Zinc is not stored by the body, so it is important to have a regular intake of zinc through your diet and supplements.

Sea Buckthorn Berry is acclaimed for helping contribute to the mucosal functions in dry eyes, the vagina and mouth, which in turn helps maintain healthy skin from within. Sage is also acclaimed to reinforce the loss of hair linked to a shift in hormone equilibrium.

For additional skin care and healthy ageing support, Skin Saviour® provides the essential co-factors required for the body to convert amino acids from dietary protein consumed for the skin’s natural collagen production.

Selenium contributes to normal thyroid function. Selenomethionine is an organic form of Selenium that contains selenium in the form of an amino acid. It's the primary form of selenium found in plant-based foods and is highly absorbable for the body. 

Sea Moss is a type of red algae that contains good levels of Iodine. Iodine is a trace element and is very important to thyroid function and the production of hormones. 

The thyroid gland is a small butterfly shaped gland in the neck and one of its main functions is to help regulate bodily processes such as metabolism, which in turn fuels your daily energy. You can learn more about the link between the thyroid and the menopause in our expert articles.

Vitamin C and the minerals Zinc and Selenium contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is caused by factors including smoking, medication, surgery, unhealthy diets, and exposure to pollution. Oxidative stress contributes to premature ageing and certain chronic diseases, and research also shows that symptoms of perimenopause can be made worse by oxidative stress.

HRT medications as well as stress can also deplete women of Vitamin C. It is therefore important to replenish this vital nutrient through diet and / or supplemental intake.

Sage is acclaimed to contain naturally occurring antioxidants and is thought to contribute to the total antioxidant capacity of the body, which can in turn help strengthen bodily defences. 

Hops extract, Dong Quai and Dandelion are acclaimed for helping protect the body’s cells from the harmful effects of free radicals, which damage cells, and protecting them from oxidation induced cell stress, and reinforcing cell protection.

Natural plants and seaweed provide a holistic and natural daily blend within PeriMenoFriend® along with 8 other vitamins and minerals.

Dong Quai, Sage Leaf, Red Clover, Shatavari, Mung Bean, Hops and Wild Yam all provide sources of phytoestrogens. 

Red Clover, Wild Yam and Sage are acclaimed for supporting a calm and comfortable menopause. Red Clover and Wild Yam are widely studied for helping combat the telltale signs of the menopause, such as hot flushes, sweating, restlessness and irritability, while Sage is studied for the support it provides women who experience excess sweating. Excess sweating is also referred to as ‘hyperhidrosis’.

Traditionally used for women’s health and particularly for oestrogen support, Shatavari is thought to help balance vata and pitta doshas. It is acclaimed to help maintain balance in female physiology during and after the menopause, as well as support the health of the kidneys.

Maca is also studied for the support it provides for sexual desire and a lack of libido, which may be helpful for those who need additional support during this pivotal time of life. 

Sea moss is a nutrient-dense, red seaweed (algae) that has been undervalued for many years. Clinical studies however are increasing, and so far this species of macroalgae has shown to have over 105 natural, active constituents

Dandelion is acclaimed for helping maintain a healthy urinary tract, important for women throughout life and particularly during perimenopause and menopause, where there is a great risk of vaginal dryness, UTIs and bacterial vaginosis (BV). If you need additional support for vaginal health, we recommend the award-winning pH Hero®, formulated to combat dryness, UTIs and vaginal infections.
